I've never fought like this before. Usually attacking as fast as I could gave me better results :)

2. Daggers are an impractical weapon to fight ogres to begin with, and giving up the ability to parry makes axes somewhat less than optimal.
Why would someone with ever choose a shortsword over a broadsword? He could do it for roleplaying resons, but not for game mechanic reasons.

3. Your shield is a valid hit location when attacked from your shield side. This includes arrows. The point is that I was trying not to hit the shield but it kept getting in the way (even when the target did not know I was there).
