I'not sure if this is relevant here or in addons - admins, could you move it if I didn't understand the rules correctly?

I've been thinking about making a more berserk berserker.

Someone who lives for the attack
Someone who's only happy when wielding the biggest weapons against the largest monster in sight
Someone who won't retreat, but rather go out in a blaze of glory on a field of blood and dismembered parts

What would happen if a berserker could

- wield 2 2H weapons in main and off hand
- couldn't wear armour on body or feet
- got a free and non-removable reverse Call of Amakthel talent - you're automatically moved one step in the direction of the biggest monster in sight (or the highest level one?)

Of course, talents like blood bath would be necessary. Perhaps even improved.

Would this be feasible? I think I'd need to do a lot of source manipulation in an addon to get 2h weapons in the offhand, correct?

Obviously 2 2H weapons without penalty is a huge deal even if you didn't have anything to reduce offhand penalty, you're basically a super Reaver but are restricted to only melee.

I don't get the point flavor-wise about not being able to wear foot armor though. If it's kept on the hands, why not the feet (outside of the obvious Flexible Combat enabler)?

I would expect that cobbling together bits of code from Reaving Combat and Grisly Constitution would get the dual-2h working.

Yes two big weapons is a big deal. But being continously moved towards monsters is a big deal as well. Never retreat!

Or maybe just use rush to get out of line of sight and be safe. Being pulled to monsters every turn (even every action) is not that big of a deal, especially for melee class who will even benefit from it if used wisely.

But 2 2H weapons without proper penalties IS a big deal. Just in terms of stats alone. Playing without body armor is already covered by mankini/bikini achievements btw, it's totally possible even without compensation.

IMO, lorewise 2H swords in this game are so heavy that even Ogres barely manage to hold them with one hand, holding 2 with one hand each is basically impossible. But if you want it just for fun (and OP stat bonuses and masteries from double 2H weapons), I think it's not that hard to make an addon.
