kicking with baranar?

what seems very attractive here is that the baranar has alot of elemental dmg, 600 if you add it all up, considering everything in hell is atleast immune to 1 thing, you still get 400 added elemental damage, and although the base weapon speed is not great, but its got 50% IAS and you can shael it. i am not too crazzy about getting the fastest frame rate either, imho the dmg might makes up for it.

what do you guys think?

it's a very good cheap option. But for raw elemental dmg a gimmershred axe is better...slower though...

I prefer Chaos claw, as it is magic damage which has the least amount of immune monsters. Of course is expensive to make. Charms also offer a good source of elemental damage. In 1.09, the damage ranges could get pretty nice on the high level elemental charms. I don't know if they can still get that high.

gimmershred is very cheap, a few perfecg gems only. Its slow though so dont use it as primary weapon...

azurwrath is also great, possibly better even, though much more expensive...probably a good rune.

chaos is also very good for the magic dmg and chance to cast frozen orb, though chaos is even more expensive!

The B-star would make a better Bfury weapon than the glimmershred due to it's AR boost.

Hmm maybe thats what I should be looking to trade for.

What do you think that would be worth? I guess that depends who is tarding w/ ya huh...
