two-weapon +7 Frost Brand, +7 silver spear (rare!)

  • 18/** str: +6
    • applied twice for two-weapon
  • skilled long sword, basic two-weapon: -1
  • skilled spear, basic two-weapon: -1
  • subtotal of bonuses: +10
  • same as two-weapon with +7 silver saber, but -0 / -1 / -2 to small damage, since silver spears are just silver sabers with d6 instead of d8 vs. small
  • Silver spears are weaker and rarer than silver sabers, and even if they weren't either, the skill difference between basic and skilled would only add +1 damage out of 35-50 you get by two-weaponing to begin with.
