the 1 handed item seems to be lacking in all areas, ive noticed in my guild we have a huge collection of offhands that are never used at all so either 1handed weapons need some love or offhands need a bigger buff somthing needs to be looked at
I use shields, tomes, EoS, incubus, 1h dagger, bloodletter, 1h holy, lifetouch, 1h fire, 1h cursed, 1h spear, heron, and clarents all the time. /shrug
Those are just the ones that come to mind without thinking too hard.Fusionbomb - GM of Morbidly_Obese

I am torn on this subject. While I certainly agree some 1h weapons/offhands are hot garbage atm (all shields for example) others I feel are just not being utilized. I still feel 1h frost can be very effective in the current frost meta in place of perma it would just require a more patient team play style. 1h xbow still has a place. I think clarent could work in an AOE focused comp. 1h curse is still strong in solo/2s PvP situations.
They need to reduce cast time on pyroblast significantly to give fire a shot. 1h spear and axe could use revamps as they are not used anywhere.
In conclusion I think some of the lack of 1h weapons is composition laziness (everyone focus on quick dive kills currently) but certainly agree there are also some 1h and offhand that need further work.
Muisak transforms any 1h weapon into it's 2h version i believe.WTB skill
There are problems only in the number of one-handed axes, mace 2/3 are useless or effective only in PVE, hammers also have only 1 option
