In Duskblind you’ll be able to recruit followers. Each one of these followers will have a weapon type from the game. It ranges from dual swords to daggers.
The point is that you can then experiment with combat. Will you have a melee follower with a great sword bash away at things while you shoot from afar? Or will you be up close and have this fella provide support with a rain of arrows?
You could mix and match different weapon combinations and see what works best for you.
