quick question .. everyone prob. has

quick question .. everyone prob. has

I was looking at 2 hander BotD words ...

t-maul = 30-180 -106.5 avg. (6 frames)

giant thresher = 40-114 77 avg (5 frames)

eth ribcracker ... dont have stats on that to be honest .. 5 frames

which would be a better investment for a fury ww... i have both t-maul and gt etheral on ladder so that would help them a decent bit dam. wise.

why not an eth great poleaxe? range of 5 and 86.5 average dmg on a non-eth one but it's 10 slower than GT.

It might be impossible to find, but I just made BOTD out of an Eth Glorious Axe. I have a 5 frame Fury, and it does 441-911 damage (390% BOTD). It has range of 4 too. This is the ultimate Fury weapon. Speed + damage + range.
 
Done a few lil more research ... i would appreciate some oppinions .. right now im thinking cryptic axe ... higher average and faster .... and isnt THAT hard to find.


cryptic axe: 33-150 (91.5 avg.) 5- frames & 5- range
gp : 46-127 (86.5 avg.) 5-frame & 5-range
archon staff 83-99 (91 avg.) frame-6 & range - 2 (koolness factor in staff
cb ... bah wont even liist ... but frame - 6

Max sockets in cryptic axe is 5, so kind of hard to make BotD in that one :p

So what 5 socket runeword are you going to socket the Cryptic Axe with? ;)

BTW, with my BOTD Glorious Axe I am doing 7000-15000 damage. Lots of STR and HoW maxed.
 
hahahaha DOH well hey at least i TRY to do research before asking questions. Also even if cryptic isnt possible .... why not giant polaxe ..?

glorious vs. polaxe
glorious range 4 / avg. dam. 92 /speed 5

gp range 5, avg./ dam. 86.5/ speed 5

okay ... axe may look kooler but based on stats it really depends on whether you like range or damage more. I am a HUGE fan of reach though so IMO polaxe is greater in stats .... HOWEVER ... axe definitly owns it over all b/c of coolness factor ..... i might go glorious axe shoping.

How in the name of god do you get these runewords? Find a hacker and trade him an arm and a leg for them? I've never seen a zod drop and neither have any of the people I've spoken with... these are people with a dozen 90+ half for MF'ing only.


Also, I've got an eth 6 socket maul. Any good for this? Or should I hold out for something higher end (example: war club).

Make sure you find an Eth Glorious Axe. Base damage is 90-186, so the median damage is 138.

Speaking of eth. giant threshers... say if you found one in the pit, would the socket quest reward give it the max sockets (i.e., 6 sockets)? And how much would this be worth if it did?
