I'm level 10, and chose Sentinel. I have a second lightsaber in my inventory but am unable to equip it for dual wield. Am I missing something?

Thanks in advance.

If the Lightsaber says "Main Hand" only, it won't work.
You need one that says both "Main hand" and "Off Hand", or only "Off hand"

Also, just checking (you never know), you're not trying to equip a double bladed lightsaber in the offhand are you?

If you rightclick something in your inventory it goes to main hand by default.

You have to open the character sheet (C) and mouse drag it to off-hand.

Same thing with equipping 2 implants or relics

When I chose Sentinel, I received a bag with the new lightsaber in it. It specifically says "Off Hand (Melee)" in the description of the new lightsaber that came in the bag. It also came with mods which I then added to it. Yet, still I am unable to equip it.

I've tried dragging it into the second slot, etc. Nothing. So, I've submitted a ticket.

Did you go to your class trainer, check BOTH tabs (at the bottom) and learn the dual-wield skill? I forgot that on my Gunslinger. ^^

Yes, I have the main saber in its slot. Though I don't recall if the Dual Wield skill was listed with my Trainer, though I did spend my first point in Dual Wield Mastery in my Talent Tree.
How can I be sure I've "learned" the Dual Wield skill? Does it show somewhere else besides the talent tree?

All your learned abilities will appear in your abilities window. The skill tree just shows where you've spent points to boost abilities, or add passive effects.
So look in your abilities window (button at top of screen).

Remember that your class trainer has two tabs of abilities (at the bottom of their window) - one for your class and one for your advanced class, so make sure you've trained in both sets of abilities and not just your general class abilities.

How do I get such a lightsaber? Do I have to buy it? If so, where are they sold? Why didn't I get such a lightsaber in my Sentinel bag when I chose that class?

Thanks everyone for all your help.

Take out both your sabers so both are in your inventory, then drag your off/hand into it's slot then drap the main into it's slot, i had to do the same, sometimes it will still still not go in if there is a main hand as it detects the slot is occupied regardless of left or right.
