Does anyone know if they gonna add this in the game. An option to have your dual wielding 1 handed swords on your back. Instead of at your waist? For me it looks so silly you have them at your waist. Specially if you some long swords. Would look so cool on his back

Big thx in advance

I guess no one knows it, or it's not gonna happen. Sadly :-(

To some, back sheaths looks cooler, like Leonardo or Stormshadow.
Just like some rock guitarists like to sling their axes way down to the crotch area.

But practicalness?
Zero.

Surely it's practical, otherwise two of the Grestest Swordsmen to walk this planet, Leonardo and Stormshadow wouldn't have done it...Besides what if you have an itchy head a lot, like really itchy so that both of your hands are constantly scratching your head. That would put the hilt's of the swords right near your hands.


All silliness aside, it'd be nice I guess. Maybe they can take a page from WoW and have certain skins that you carry on your back?

Would look cool in some situations, but i prefer having them in the waist, makes it more "medieval"

I guess OP wanted this?

Would love if its on the waist, but horizontally rested on your lower back.

On a side note, I hope two handed sword is carried on your shoulder when you're running, as if the sword holder is rested on your shoulder and it seems like you're carrying burden. Can't find picture of it, but I hope you get my point. Wishful thinking though.

I know at least the Asura animation is like that, where the Asura is resting the greatsword/hammer on one shoulder while running.

The reason you cant have them is becuase the back slot item takes that space

Despite how cool it may be, I do not think everyone wants to look like Geralt of Rivia.

Meanwhile in an alternate universe the greatsword, staff, hammer, shortbow, longbow, rifle and aquatic weapons can be sheathed on your back. Oh no, wait..
