I am on ladder.. And I was thinking about using it on a WW barb, either with another sword swords, or with a shield
hehe, not many people are replying to this post.. is it because the rune words listed in my fist post all suck?

i realize that rune words such as BotD, beast, etc are a lot better at first sight, but i was wondering if using a balrog blade, and a 4 socket RW is usefull, or just a waste..
If it were ethereal, it'd make a nice 'Oath', but otherwise the runes aren't really worth it. Of those three, however, I'd pick 'Kingslayer'; the high Open Wounds, Crushing Blow, and reduced target defense have their uses...
Yeah, is it ethereal? A high ed oath can dish out major damage. A perfect oath BB in a 15% sup etheareal will do 100 - 509 one handed damage, which is just INSANE considering that the highest rune is mal. It also easily reaches the last ww breakpoint. Very good sword for legit people :)
