    Hidden 2h damage boost

    It was stated that weapons got a 2h attack boost because it multiplies the strength by 1.5

    These weapons do not have strength scaling listed. Unlike strength weapons, these did not have an increased attack rating listed when 2 handed.

    This is old news, but thanks for doing the tests.
    All weapons with a STR scaling gets the two handed bonus of 1.5x strength.
    But, most weapon's 2H attack hits harder than their 1H attacks, even though the AR is the same for both. 2H attacks also consumes more stamina to execute (and are usually slower/longer windup), so it's a trade-off.
    On the other hand, the critical attacks (parry/backstab) of non scaling weapons should be the same 1H and 2H.

    This was already know, there is an invisible multiplier for 2h regardless. The Str multiplier is just extra, and it is only on Str weapons that backstabs and ripostes do more damage 2h
