I am playing a Sorcerer/Barbarian hybrid and using the whirling slayer Barbarian class feature wielding two Longswords with seperate enhancements. I am also basing my character around using thunder and lightning powers, and to add flavor to my character I also had him worship Kord. I am just now realizing that Kord has a very beneficial holy symbol that fits my play style perfectly. My question is simple. Can I cast through my holy symbol while dual wielding longswords? I have been getting mixed answers throughout the forums, and in the character builder the holy symbol won't even show up on my power cards unless it is being held.
I'm sorry I should've clarified, I am proficient with Holy Symbols.
Just thought I'd add, I took Initiate of the Faith, and I'm well aware they cannot be used with weapon powers. I'm looking to cast sorcerer powers through my holy symbol while wielding two longswords.
Coolio, In that case you will be able to use all your implement powers with a Holy Symbol yes. Note that you won't be able to use your weapon powers with it though.
The Character Builder is not always accurate but normally if you equipped it in the Holy Symbol slot you should see it on your implement power cards.
I would be using my longswords for weapon attacks, and the holy symbol for implement attacks. But i need to be sure that I can cast through the holy symbol without having it in my hand.
Yes you can use a implement without having to hold it in your hand, simply by wearing it.
Excellent. I have it equipped in the holy symbol slot and it isn't showing up on my cards even with the box checked. But that must just be a programming error. Thank you for your help.
Note: I would like to see your build if you don't mind. Would you be up for a pit stop in Char-Op? I want to see how it all comes together.
Er, you qualify for sup will by having high CHA...
To the OP: it's worth noting that you need, with this layout, to have three attack items all at the right enhancement bonus, which is going to get hideously expensive at later levels. You might want to look into using a Ki Focus.
