This is going to be a confusing question to frame but I will do my best.
I was going through open-world, Core Warrior builds on Metabattle-The Axe/Axe Arms build.
I read something there that jolted me into remembering that I had questioned this before and still do not have an answer
Here is the snippet, copy and pasted from the Metabattle Build
"If you don't need the crowd control from off-hand Mace, you can go without it and just run dual axes. If you do this, you should put your main hand axe in weapon set 1 and your offhand axe in weapon set 2."
Ok. I understand this part. Two weapon sets. You place an Axe in your main-hand in one Weaponset, and an Axe in your off-hand in the other set.
My question is how in the world does this affect Superior Sigils ?????
Normally, I cruise with Superior Sigil of Force in the main-hand and Superior Sigil of Cleaning in the off-hand.
Superior Sigil of Force. This Sigil adds +5% Damage
Superior Sigil Of Cleaning. This Sigil "Removes 3 conditions when swapping to this weapon in combat."
Now it gets confusing to frame my question...
Picture this, I am fighing a mighty battle against an equally mighty foe. The weaponset I am using is number 2. This is the weapon set that does not have a main-hand (Force) but does have an off-hand (Cleaning).
I have conditions, so I switch to weaponset number 1 which has a main-hand weapon (Force) and is without an off-hand (Cleaning)......here comes my question(s).....
(1) If I switch to the weaponset which does not have an off-hand (Cleaning) ...do I still get my conditions washed off me???
(2) If I am fighting this mighty battle with the weaponset that does not have a main-hand (Force) am I still getting the 5% Damage????
Any help will be very much appreciated.
Last edit..I promise. Is it better to just use two physical Axes in each hand????
