Should 2 handed weapons get more mods? One of the biggest drawbacks to using 2 handers in Diablo games so far is that you lose a few slots for magic affixes. Magic items in D2 could have 2 affixes, whether they took one or two hands to use. Similarly for rare items, crafted items, and even uniques usually had around the same number of affixes. Of course, 2-handers could do more damage, but that benefit is already balanced by the fact that when you use a 1-handed weapon you get the added defense of a shield. But should that still be a consideration in how many mods an item can get? For the sake of variety, I'd like to see more characters using two-handed swords, spears, poleaxes, and battle axes. I think that giving 2-handers more mods is the way to make this happen.
