    LOTRO never really has been a good game for min/max types. This is by design. No buff, item bonus, set bonus et al is significant enough to be a "must have" in regards that the game is playable, and...

    I reset my quickslots for the swords, and now switching works fine. Must have been a bug. Or it likes my new First Ager better than the Second Ager. ;-)

    I try equipping the LI first, but the offhand sword keeps replacing it. Only time it doesn't is if the offhand is a different weapon type from the main hand, IE: MH Sword, Offhand dagger.

    In combat switching from 2 Hand to Dual Wield gets tricky because LOTRO doesn't like to equip main slot then offhand slot. Instead it replaces the main hand slot. I believe there are plug ins...
