Dual Flurry Perk is turning itself off
Hey Steam Community. This is my first forum post on Steam so bear with me on this.
I bought the Skyrim Legendary edition and loving it. But I have noticed a rather game breaking bug (in my opinion) involving the perk Dual Flurry. I have checked google and other sites to find a manual fix and it appears that not too many people have even noticed this bug (assuming they have it).
This is basically what happens: Dual Flurry turns itself off at random times. If you enter a new area while you are not dual wielding, it will turn itself off even if you equip a weapon in both hands soon after. This also happens if you load a save file where, at the time, you were not dual wielding. So essentially, if you hit a loading screen and you were NOT dual wielding at the end of it, Dual Flurry will turn itself off and remain turned off until you enter a new area or save the game while dual wielding and load it.
However, if you DO load an area or save file where you were duel wielding, equipping your offhand with a spell or shield, or even nothing at all, will still keep Dual Flurry turned on in your main-hand. This, however, does not last, as after about a minute or several uses of the offhand, Dual Flurry turns itself back off again, and the only way to turn it back on is through the methods stated above.
I have tested this very thoroughly and have even recorded a video of my findings that I will put up on youtube if necessary.
I do have all of the DLC, a few mods, as well as the unnoficial patches for Skyrim and its DLC. I have tried turning off all of my mods and even the unnofical patches and it didn't appear to do anything. This also appears to happen on the console version as well, as I tried it on a friends PS3 and the same thing appears to happen.
I have tried fixing the problem myself through the console, using the command player.modAV weaponspeedmult 1.35, as well as player.modAV leftweaponspeedmult 1.35 (for the offhand) which made it so I always had that 35% bonus attack speed and it never went away, even if I entered a new area or save where I wasn't dual wielding. However, this method isn't exactly the best fix for 1 reason: It also ends up increasing the attack speed of all other weapons, including 2 handed weapons and bows/crossbows. Also, if you load a game or enter a new area where at the time you were dual wielding, your attack speed will spike to heights out of control.
If I use the command player.forceav weaponspeedmult 1.35, it will stay at 1.35 no matter what, but it also means that enchantments and buffs like Elemental Fury won't work.
I have tried testing this in several areas of the game and it makes no difference. I have tried testing this with several different weapons and weapon types and it doesn't make a difference. I have tried uninstalling my mods and the unnofficial patches and it doesn't make a difference. I am pretty close to reinstalling the game completely, but considering this seems to happen on the console version as well, I think it just may be a waste of time.
Has anyone else had this problem (please don't say no if you have never even tried dual flurry. If you have Dual Flurry, you may want to go test this before you answer). If so, Does anyone know of a way to possibly fix this issue manually?
This bug is a little bit annoying to me because I do play on Legendary mode and having that dual flurry perk seriously helps when I need to take down tougher dragons. If it turns itself off then it gets pretty annoying.
