weapons designated as two-hand should have some bonuses.
This should happen because with a single-handed counterpart
you can deal the same damage as well as have an extra 5 stat.
Having 10 stat 2 hand items would be smelly though. So
perhaps have them 7 stat and higher av/max dam than the
single handed counter parts, instead of say, 7kg 8max 4av
have 7kg 10max 6av or something. By doing this you might
see people actually USE the 2 handed items. It would make
them a viable weapon, not something to be immeadatly discarded

actually, there already is an 'item' similar to what you suggest
so, going with that "guideline":
2-hand weapons would be
+5 net stats/dam/hit/etc
two max damage over the weight, i.e. 12kg/14max dam

It would be nice if two-handed weapons/rifles gave additional
bonuses. However, the comparison to made staves is not particularly
good since it requires a skill to make them, they have no stat
bonuses, can't be dropped, traded, picked up, etc.
Also, it would be much better to cut off two of the four hands that
PCs currently have before giving bonuses to two-handed weapons. Combat
would be more interesting if PCs had to choose between weapon & shield,
weapon & held (+stat or gun), or a two-handed weapon (or rifle).

i know personally if i swung a stick with 1 hand it wouldn't do
as much damage as if i swung it with 2 hands :P

It would make sense if some of the two-handed weapons had a lil more damage to them
as well as some more stats
but theres a limit as to how many people would actually WANT to get these weapons
chances are most of the weapons IF they were to come like this would be extremely hard to get your hands on
much like the Razor Greaves, many have heard, few have seen, but rarely noone has had
to make the stats and any other bonuses better you gotta think that the mobs will be harder as per the weapon
Granite if I got a 2 handed axe that had decent stats/bonuses and max/avg dam I would change in an instant
but it'll be a matter of GETTING the time, much like getting the greaves
but I will admit your idea has good thought, there is some guns with higher max dam than any weapon

While we're cutting off 2 of the 4 hands
can we add the other 8 fingers?
