In the single player TES games you cannot block while dual wielding. I know ZOS has said you can "block with any weapon", but I cant find anything about being able to block while dual wielding. If anyone knows or has a source it would be greatly appreciated.

I have not heard anything either. I would have to think that it will not be allowed. Kind of defeats the purpose of just using one blade then. Just because we know you can block with any weapon, it does not mean we should assume you can block while dual wielding.

According the the tutorial from Pax:
Tapping the left mouse button attacks. Holding it is a power attack.
Holding the right mouse button blocks. Holding it and tapping the left mouse button is a bash.

While I didn't see it with dual wielding, it might be a safe assumption that it works the same.

Left mouse will probably used for both weapons. They should've done it that way in Skyrim.


By arrow. By blade.
By tooth. By claw.
By shock. By frost. By flame.
The Aldmeri Dominion will dominate Tamriel.
Our enemies will fall until the Throne is ours.

Right clicking is block. Any weapon/combo can block including bow.

if they do keep left click for both weapons and make the second sword use ability specific like in GW2, that will be great news. dont want to be hindering my combat abilities by not being able to block since i plan on going heavy armor and not so much sneaking

It's kinda stupid that you couldn't block while dual wielding in Skyrim. A shield should block better, of course, but two swords can block just fine.

The Skyrim system was terrible. There is no reason you shouldn't be able to parry wielding two weapons.

I'm sure we'll be able to block.

I admit I had to chuckle when I saw you fiercely defending dualwield and noticed you avatar Winking_grinning


Debating with someone on the Internet is like mudwrestling with a pig. You get filthy and the pig loves it

Heh, didn't even think about it when I made the post. I guess it's my duty defending it, given my avatar. Winking_tongue_out

Yes you can block with dual wielding. There is a skill in the dual wield line that lets you use both weapons at once. It has been mentioned by those who played at pax east. Otherwise you swing the first weapon and then the second on consecutive mouse clicks when attacking
