There is a thread on the Atl boards..here http://neroatlanta.net/forums/index.php?topic=14084.0
where the question of profs, handedness, and racial weapons was brought up. Pretty much as it is written now you can use your racial weapon with either or both hands. I am sure, well mostly sure, that was not how it was suppose to be.

Can I get an official clarification, please.

It says that Profs can be used, therefore I would surmise that the Handedness still affects them.

This debate has been happening in NB as well.

It can indeed be read both ways;
- To imply all profs apply to racial weapons
- Or it could be read that if you use your racial weapon in your right hand, and you have profs in your right hand then you get the profs as well.

Rules Citation:
- One handed weapons maybe used with either hand - p44 under each description.
- Handedness must be declared for Back attacks/Backstabs/Weapon Proficiencies/Master Weapon Proficiencies/Critical Attacks/Master Critical Attacks - under each individual skill
- Assassinates/Slays/Master Slays use the same handedness that is declared for the associated Backstab/Weapon Profs(etc) - again under each skill

The racial packet allows for any profs etc to be applied to the racial weapon wielded. But it doesn't take into account 'handedness' that is required for profs, but not required for weapon skills.

Could someone clarify the following situation for me -
Sarr Fighter

Two Handed Sword
Florentine
Two Weapons
8 Weapon Proficiency, Two Handed Sword, Right
2 Critical Slay, Two Handed Sword, Right
8 Weapon Proficiency, Two Handed Sword, Left
2 Critical Slay, Two Handed Sword, Left

Now for the questions:
1 - Does this character call 19 normal with a 2handed sword?
2 - Does this character have a Blade Fury slay?
3 - Does this character call 10 normal with each claw?

The rule book states "Every fourth critical slay a character has deals 200 damage instead of the normal 100", which makes me unsure about #2. I would think #1 & #3 are definitely yes, but I'm curious what others think.

As I see it
1 - Yes
2 - No (Because you have Right slay 2, Left Slay 2, not a Right/Left slay 4)
3 - Yes

For racial weapons handedness is still considered with profs. Another way to think of it is that any profs you have are considered "master" for the use with racial weapon skills.

1 - Does this character call 19 normal with a 2handed sword?
(Yes)
2 - Does this character have a Blade Fury slay?
(No) Need 4 of the same type in the same hand.
3 - Does this character call 10 normal with each claw?
(Yes)
