    From what I gather it would be best for me to have a two handed weapon since I have Bushido and Parrying. I'm hoping to find a good ornate axe with a nice swing speed increase but I was wondering what my dexterity should be for the best swing times on the axes. I run a template without healing and use curse weapon instead, so it's very important that I hit often.

    Ideally, 200 stamina, but that is almost impossible without sacrificing everything else. Within reason, I usually set dex to 125 (max), leaving 120 left for strength and base intelligence of 10, which is enough for an elf.

    Most samurai hit 130-145 stamina or so.

    Your priorities should be DCI/LMC/DI and then MR/DEX/STA/INT/MI/HCI/FC/FCR (your choice, pick two or maybe three if you are uber rich).

    Ornates should have 25 to 30 SSI.

    Obviously a shield won't work very well for you, but a one-handed weapon can work fine, the evasion hit is not too bad. And, you can drink potions then.

    People that can use shields have it a lot easier to fit everything on their template.

    Good luck!
