    2h weapon Ie: polearms? F/R

    Are the only two really good weapons eth 3os tomb reaver and ebotd gpa for ranged 2h weapons? I mean for a fury/rabies druid, because both are hard to find.

    Cruel Gaint Tresher of Quickness : 2 sockets
    Cruel Great Poleaxe of Quickness : 2 sockets
    And as pointed out good rares, but those will be hard to find.

    I use an ebotdgpa right now, and I've been happy with the results so far. However, I'm trying to get an eth tomb for the sake of having a much, MUCH faster attack.

    Is a ROBO Giant Thresher still viable?

    I'm having a very hard time Vs things Range would benifit me for. I believe either puma or kibas advice for smiters is range, then I need range and FRW for casters. Any suggestions?

    Good weapons, well, good stuff usually is rare and/or expensive. That is the point.
    Cheaper ones are like ribcracker, but that one doesn't really have "it" when it comes to duels.

    Most definately. Higher damage, higher range, extra attack rating, extra stats (more life/damage/ar)... the gpa is definately your vs melee weapon.

    GPA is the best overall. The higher range makes a big difference in my opinion. Caster who are smart don't teleport too close. Often they mistake the range of GPA with Greif PB or eBOTDz. I hit better with Range 5 then Range 4 against casters, and you should have enough resistences anyways.

    I'm not quite sure where the price issue came from...I have the wealth for both weapons, I just am having a very, very, very, hard time finding them. I actuallyhave all the runes to make a botd gpa, I just need the GPA. For the last 5 days those items have been all I have been trading for and not a single person has join a game or answered a post. What I was wondering was if there is a less difficult to find weapon, not nessessarily cheaper. I know price reflects availability, but you know what im say.

    Oh and I have an upped ribcraker, It just doesnt cut it. And my upgrade to ebotdz over grief pb has substancially helped.

    It's a waste, for what u invest in ed/ias you'd better make a botd pole out of it.

    What about Oath in a four socket eth GPA, scourge, champion axe etc. They might be easier to find. Other than that I would join baal runs and instead of going to the chamber try your luck in the ancients tunnels with 0 magic find.
