2 Handed all the way!!!... In my opinion that is.
You can get the steel great sword from Kingsbridge pretty early and by the time you need better you will have found something else or at least be able to afford something better.
Timing (and strength and skills) is the key to the 2HW why rush...
I wish I'd kept the Maul. Werewolves and silver damages wasn't always a thing :(
I carry a silver great sword (where you have the maul), I also carry Rancor for Trolls
and the Axe if the Minotaur King for the Arc.
For everything else is the Adamanite Greatsword.
You only really need to keep...
For a single hit its going to be the rogue or maybe the mage I really haven't gotten into the mage yet.
But there is nothing like wading into a mob with a 2 handed warrior with battle rage and fury triggered and whirlwinding them all at once. 7 at one blow... only if they can get close enough.
There is also a lot better armor in the Ashen Cape before you get to the Arc. Grind that until you get the full Ashen set and have fun.
You are walking the line between strength and agility and in my opinion I don't think that works well in this game.
Focus on one or the other.
I've been grinding/farming the SOH.
I must be having a bad run as one dragon just drops 2 scrolls and gold (3 out of 4 times)
I got a scroll of Recall, a scroll of summon dire wolf and 1064 gold last time.
