IIRC, 1h spears/pole arms were not initially created/planned for Jade, and they were eventually implemented. Perhaps this is a result of that, but:
I've been fighting through a cave with an orcish fighter. I started the game with a heater shield and a steel battle axe. On level 2 of said cave, I picked up and equipped a steel spear. I can equip it in one hand, keeping my shield. However, this is raising my 2h pole arms skill.
I apologize if this has been mentioned before. I'm new here, and tried searching for this, but couldn't find anything about it. I know it's not a huge deal, so maybe the creator is already aware, and it's on the back-burner.
Either way, loving this game so far.
You seemed to enjoy pointing out my fault a bit too much... Maybe it's just me.
Understood, though. I'll stick to just reading and not posting in the bugs/issues area.
Apologies to all for the trouble.
I wouldn't worry about it, Nateskeez. Some duplicates are inevitable, since people use different words to describe the same bugs, which not all searches will catch. I have made a few duplicates myself. I find it helpful to skim a bit of the Project Timeline section to see what everyone else is saying to make sure I have found an original issue. Also some duplicates doubtless come from the fact that many of us are frantically testing and making bug posts as soon as a new version is released. I have a sneaking suspicion that one or two of my dupes were posted only minutes before me, probably because I type too slow. Lol! Please keep posting. The more testers the merrier. This seems to me to be a great opportunity to help along a game that is already amazing and is only gonna get better.
