I'm starting my first fighter/thief. I figure I'll spec. in bows (short maybe) and longswords. I was thinking I should dual wield, but I can't do that and carry a bow at the same time, and I hate switching back and forth. Should I even bother with any of the weapon styles? Also, other than bows and long swords, what weapons should I go for? Shortswords maybe?

Please, no spoilers, I'm just looking for advice on proficiencies.

Furthermore, would being an elf affect the romances?

Thanks.

Assuming you make it to ToB, *cough* *cough*, I will take Long Swords and Katanas, dual-wielding them.

If you are only doing SoA, then Katanas and Short Swords.

Considering the romance options are all Elven, being an Elf will not cause you to lose any of the romances.

I thought I'd loose the Vic romance if I was elven. Not that it matters because I think I'm going for Jah, but still...

Without spoiling you, there are
some cool short swords, katanas, and
scimitars in the game.
