In a comment on Is it possible to use a shield in one hand and magic in the other?, switching the controls for left arm to left mouse button (and right arm to right mouse button) was mentioned. I think this makes the dual-wielding system much more intuitive - however, I desperately don't want to have to left click to block and right click to attack (or right click to shoot my bow, left click to melee with it, etc).

I didn't see anything in the settings to alter mappings for dual wielding only - is there any way to do this?

  • Are you on PC or console? I'd be surprised if there wasn't a mod to fix this by now, but if you're not on a PC I won't bother looking for one. Aug 16, 2012 at 21:44
  • @SevenSidedDie PC - if there is a mod to do this, I'd love to know what it is. Aug 20, 2012 at 14:46
  • Surprisingly I haven't found one. I have found a mod that lets you parry while dual-wielding though, which has the side-effect of making left-click be alway attack, since right-click becomes parry. Editing that mod might give a clue to how to write the desired mod, too. Aug 20, 2012 at 14:51

If you play with a controller it is mapped correctly (right trigger controls right hand). There is no way to just map dual wielding on the PC

You could put your shield in your right hand and the sword in the left.

  • This is only a solution if I do not swap the mouse click (M1 for primary, M2 for secondary) and if I use sword and shield, which is not dual wielding at all. Nov 14, 2011 at 19:38
  • @Ian I misunderstood your question then. So you want to left click to swing a 2-handed weapon, fire a bow, swing a 1-handed weapon with a shield, and swing the left weapon while dual wielding?

    Bingo. I want to keep original key mappings when not dual-wielding, and have each hand controlled by each side when dual-wielding (either a weapon or magic). Nov 14, 2011 at 20:04
  • You can'r equip a shield in your right hand.
