    Re: A first for me

    Yea this was in NM and I about sharted myself when I saw it drop ..

    About the only thing I can make at this point is a Fortitude Armor and Iv'e never had a Fortitude Armor before so that would make a nice armor for my up and coming Nihlathek Zerker barb . Being a Zerker I'll lose the defense bonus but all the other mods work nicely for a Zerker ..

    But I would like to think I could eventually find a nice 5 OS axe and make a Grief with it .. But Iv'e found 2 Mal's in my entire D2gaming time so Im not holding out hopes of finding one of those anytime soon ...

    Nice Find Dave.

    Also I think you should save the Lo for a Grief. If you do make a Fort, I wouldn't use it on the zerker barb for Nihl. I think Gladiator's Bane works really good for Nihl Zerker.

    Dave-o

    Thirded on the grief, Mal can fall from Forge so don't make plans based on the fact you'll never get one. If you still need one when I get done leveling the Classic characters I'll rush a bunch of mules and hook you up

    Re: A first for me

    So after talking to several different banana members and reading up on the roon word Iv'e just about decided that Im going to make a Grief Phase Blade in lieu of the Fortitude armor . It was also brought to my attention that two Um's make a Mal and I just got a Um from a Hellforge quest . So I can probably trade for an Um or I'll find one fairly soon . Just need to find me a 5 Os Phase Blade but those are fairly common ..

    Now Im going to have to remake my barb as well as I maxxed out Axe Mastery on him before finding the Lo so I wasnt sure what his final weapon was going to be .

    Re: A first for me

    Berserker Axe, Speed [0], Range 3, 47.5 Avg Dmg
    10 Frame: 75% IAS
    9 Frame: 125% IAS

    Phase Blade, Speed [-30], Range 2, 33.0 Avg Dmg
    9 Frame - 42% IAS

    The 30-40% IAS from Grief counts toward the total IAS, so a Phase Blade means nearly anything that adds IAS anywhere on your gear is going to get you to 9 frame zerk. Getting 9 frame zerk with a Berserker Axe is a pain. You'd need to have 85% ias OUTSIDE your weapon if you rolled a perfect 40% IAS.

    The Berserker Axe's advantages (range and slightly higher damage) are only significant when using Whirlwind, which negates the need for outside IAS. Of course, you need to roll 34% or higher IAS, otherwise you won't hit the top WW breakpoint.

    Anyway, long story short... if you are set on zerking, Phase Blade is the way to go. If you want to give WW a try, a Berserker Axe is viable, but risky.

    Re: A first for me

    Well I rolled the Grief Phase Blade today and it ended up with 355 damage / 37 ias / 13 life per kill .. Max roll is 400 / 40 / 15 so its's not a top of the line one but its still really nice .. It kind of reminds me of the 4 Oath Swords I rolled last ladder - never got a max damage one but they were all very respectable as they were ..

    Time for NIHL's !!!!
