Rogue Trader Dual Wielding

Here are few things you need to know to optimize your build.

Weaponry and Focus

  • Sharpen your skills: Prioritize Weapon Skill and Strength when allocating characteristics. High Weapon Skill lets you parry incoming attacks with ease, while Strength fuels the crushing blows of your dual blades.
  • Embrace the chainsword: These iconic weapons are readily available and pack a serious punch. Equip a Chainsword in each hand for maximum carnage.

Talents for a Dancing Death

  • Dual-Weapon Combat: This is your bread and butter. It unlocks a second attack with your off-hand weapon, turning you into a whirlwind of steel. Remember, this attack costs one extra AP.

Warrior Archetype

  • Melee Master:¬†This archetype enhances your combat prowess, making you a true master of close-quarters combat.

Playstyle: A Dance of Death and Steel:

  • Aggression is key: Dual-wielding is all about dealing maximum damage. Land a brutal strike with your main hand, then unleash a swift follow-up with your off-hand.
  • Defense on the fly: Use your remaining AP for defensive actions like Brace For Impact or Endure to weather the storm of enemy attacks.
  • Become a whirlwind: When targeted by an Officer’s ability or Heroic Act, use your Reaction to attack again, keeping the pressure on your foes.

Companions in Arms

  • Recruit a Navy Officer: Their Brace For Impact ability provides invaluable support, keeping you and your allies in the fight.

Remember, Rogue Trader is a game of customization and experimentation. Feel free to adapt this guide to your own playstyle and preferences. Above all, have fun carving your bloody path through the enemies of the Imperium!
