Playing the paladin build like in Skyrim. I've got a combination of heavy armor, but mainly my strategy is to be a self-healing tank.
My base configuration is: - left hand shield - right hand mace/healing spell
I've experienced, when I switch from mace to healing spell, that the swap is quick, but when I swap back from healing spell to weapon, it takes more time, sort-of looks like it's reloading both shield and weapon.
Instead, if I swap healing spells with shield, it's a lot quicker on the left hand. It looks like that as long as I keep the weapon in the right hand fixed, it's smoother to swap between shield and healing on the left hand. Unfortunately I prefer to play this character more defensively and would like to swap the right hand weapon with spells. My understanding is that so far I won't be able to effectively do as I like.
What's your experience with this?
