Off-hand weapons are weapons that are wielded in the off-hand slot of a player's set-up. They provide higher damage output per second at the cost of lower defences. They essentially enable dual wielding.

As of an update on 29 February 2016, most off-hand weapons up to Rune can be used and made in Free-to-Play.
