    So you're asking if you'll kill faster by doing more damage?

    I'm going to take a guess and say yes.

    I prefer using one. Because the shield can help me stay alive longer unless resists and dr is no use to you.

    2 ebotd would be a waste. Use 1 for runs such as Meph and Pindle if you can so you can kill them faster. But otherwise use eBOTD and a SS

    I never use my SS though, Since I dont duel the only thing that can ever kill me is Iron maiden.

    Holding the blade 2h or using 2 blades will do roughly the same damage, with a slight advantage to the 2 sword config.

    You'd do better with double griefs, though.

    Well, then do it like this:

    - check 2h damage of botd
    - chech 1h damage of botd, multiply x2.

    Whichever is higher is the answer. With botd it should be more or less the same, except that dual wielding gives you the stats boost from 2nd weapon.

    But won't you hit more often with (2) weapons? Meaning more weapons mods being proc'ed.

    Well, 2 weapons roughly hit twice in WW, but at their 1h damage.

    Since 1h damage x2 is about the same as 2h damage, dual wielding 1h weaps or wielding a 2h weap does just about the same damage.

    The exception is grief, whose 1h damage is comparable to the 2h damage of a 2-hander. Thus, dual grief will make more damage than a 2h weapon.
