  • Allows two one-handed weapons to be used at once.
  • Reduces the combined delay of these weapons by the Dual Wield % listed above.
      • (Delay1 + Delay2) × (1 - Dual Wield %) ÷ 2 = New Delay per Hand
      • TP/hit is calculated using the above delay instead of the weapons' listed delays.
  • This job ability is one of the most potent ways of increasing DPS, but it is subject to the delay cap as follows:
    • (1 - Dual Wield %) × (1 - Haste %)  ≥  0.2
    • Because Dual Wield reduces TP/hit, it is more desirable to reach the delay cap through Haste than Dual Wield.
