Lightsaber Shoto off-hand

I believe a Shoto was in KOTOR or KOTOR 2 if I am not mistaken. The only downside *could* be that new script would need to be made for the weapon w/ all the stats because it functions similar to a lightsaber but *faster* reaction time because of its size.

not needed at all. Gree and one of the C.M. sabers are longer than normal. its pure visual effects.

Ah! Then I stand corrected.

Shoto as a cartel market item makes sense to me and I support it:
* orange/custom
* same stats as other lightsabers
* difference is purely visual -- beam shorter than normal, maybe narrower too
* both main and off-hand

To the people who think it looks ridiculous: you don't have to use it. There are body type 1 female characters who would look great with it in main hand. There are sentinels/marauders who want normal main and shoto off-hand.

There already are other sabers with different beams: volatile, gree, etc. Shorter beam of shoto is the continuation of the same beam tweaking approach.

I would like to see them added. I never dual wielded in KotOR II but if I had I would not have used a full-sized offhand saber.

It totally makes sense. Jedi are Samurai.

If they make it a re-skin of normal lightsabers, I can't find a reason NOT to have it in the game.

As long as it's just a reskinned lightsaber and not a new class of weapon, I fully support it. We've got longer lightsabers; give us some shorter ones.
