When comparing a two-handed weapon in your inventory with two one-handed weapons like this:

enter image description here

Are the stats shown taking both one-handers into account, or just the displayed one? Notice that there's no option to compare with the off-hand using the alt-key, here.

  • It's not entirely a duplicate, however. I don't think there's a question that focuses on comparisons between dual wield and 2h, he just needs to edit the questions a little.

It does indeed take both weapons into account. This can be tested by simply removing one of the two one-handers and then comparing the two-handed weapon with the remaining one-hander. The difference in stats shown will be different.
