Lookin for something funny/crazy to put BOTD in...

I've got some spare Vex/Zod and I want to make a novelty item, one that no one else on bnet has. I need suggestions on what crazy thing to put botd in. The only requirements obviously is that it must be able to have 6 sockets, ethereal, have a weird name, and it can't be something common... like a 6os Crystal Sword for example. But instead something like a Holy Water Sprinkler (I know you can't make it in that, I'm just saying).

After I make it, I'll post a screenshot in this thread... also if you have something like this (or if you come across one) on USEast Non-ladder, then post here, thanks. If you can't tell, I'm sort of getting bored of diablo t.t

Ebotd Archon Staff all the way!! :clap:

Good luck finding a 6 socket, ethereal Archon Staff btw.

why is implae so bad btw? it's huge dmg

It's because impale is rediculously slow. You'll be lucky to get one hit off anything when surrounded.

mmmm, archon staff is to common imo...
anyting else you can make with a spear?
Archon Staves are too common? I havent seen anyone walk around with an Ebotd Archon Staff ever since Botd was enabled. You do know that the Archon Staff is an elite class weapon and doesn't drop too much right?

As for spears, Ebotd Mat Pike will be a cool jabbing weapon for a Spearazon, but as Ash says, forget about Impale.
 
Here's a list of all possibly-6 socket weapons in the game.

Take your pick:

Normal Items
Military Pick - One-Handed Axe
War Axe - One-Handed Axe
Great Axe - Two-handed Axe
Giant Axe - Two-Handed Axe
Long Battle Bow - Bow
Long War Bow - Bow
Heavy Crossbow - Crossbow
Maul - Two-Handed Mace
Great Maul - Two-Handed Mace
Halberd - Poleaxe
War Scythe - Poleaxe
Spetum - Spear
Pike - Spear
War Staff - Staff
Crystal Sword - One-Handed Sword
Great Sword - Two-Handed Sword (one hand for barb)


Exceptional Items
Crowbill - One-Handed Axe
Naga - One-Handed Axe
Gothic Axe - Two-Handed Axe
Ancient Axe - Two-Handed Axe
Large Siege Bow - Bow
Gothic Bow - Bow
Ballista - Crossbow
War Club - Two-Handed Mace
Martel de Fer - Two-Handed Mace
Bec-De-Corbin - Poleaxe
Grim Scythe - Poleaxe
Yari - Spear
Lance - Spear
Rune Staff - Staff
Dimensional Blade - One-Handed Sword
Executioner Sword - Two-Handed Sword (one hand for barb)


Elite Items
War Spike - One-Handed Axe
Berserker Axe - One-Handed Axe
Champion Axe - Two-Handed Axe
Glorious Axe - Two-Handed Axe
Crusader Bow - Bow
Hydra Bow - Bow
Colossus Crossbow - Crossbow
Ogre Maul - Two-Handed Mace
Thunder Maul - Two-Handed Mace
Great Poleaxe - Poleaxe
Giant Thresher - Poleaxe
Ghost Spear - Spear
War Pike - Spear
Archon Staff - Staff
Phase Blade - One-Handed Sword
Colossus Blade - Two-Handed Sword (one hand for barb)



My recommendations:
For awesomeness: Any Military Pick, a Halberd or Bec-De-Corbin, Long Battle Bow, or a Rune Staff
For damage (non ethereal, non superior damages listed): Glorious Axe (60-124 two hand), Archon Staff (83-99 two hand... but c'mon, it's a staff), or War Pike (33-178 two hand)

It's a shame that only weapons can have 6 sockets. Otherwise I would have suggested you to put the runes in an armor or shield and try to trade it in public trading games for laughs.

Have fun making it. 100 style points from me. :thumbsup:
It's awesome what you're doing. All I can say is good luck finding a 6-socket whatever.

Actually, the whole point of it was to make it in a really crappy item. Like a quilted armor enigma for example. I don't care about losing the runes... it's a joke. I just need some suggestions on really obscure and weird item classes that I could do this in, something that isn't common.

I have NEVER EVER EVER EVER in all my two/three years of playing seen an ethereal crystal sword.

I'd make it in the Archon Staff, I'd pay big bucks for an archon staff ebotd, even if it were a low one - Just having a completely useless botd (Or one I can make a staff barb with!) would be excellent =)

acctually I have seen an eth archon botd, my friend had one for his monkadin. Don't know what a monkidin is? Well all I know is it uses staves/staffs and cant use any armor better than elite leather. I have know idea what moves or such are but it was a funny build.

Yes yes. Botd in spear and polearm class weapons have already been done. Botd in sword and axe class weapons have also been done. Botd bows are less common but they also exist. A staff class Botd would look totally awesome and be very unique. Plus, it makes a cool sound when you hit monsters with it :lol: .

I've seen tonnes of archon staff BOTD's, wolf druids use em all the time.

I was about to post that; relatively same damage as an EBotD Ogre Maul with the same speed, but the strength requirement is much, much less (I think it's 18?).

I concur with Naitti though...I have yet to see a BotD crossbow.
