Hmm why? xbow = 1 item. weapon+shield 2 items
and character can have 2 items on him and 2 items in bag so it should be ok
Ofc i am thinking about using fast hands perk to switch fast to melee+shield
Don’t get me wrong, that much works. It’s not a problem and quick hands helps. What I mean is that you can have a throwing weapon and a shield equipped at the same time, so that you can block ranged shots effectively while throwing them. The same can’t be done with the crossbow equipped since it takes the shield slot and the weapon slot. It’s not a long period of exposure with a shield in your inventory and quick hands, but it’s still a period of exposure to be aware of.
