    Astreon's ???

    I see this weapon in the weapon classes ... maybe I haven't been here long enough, but I haven't seen it mentioned.

    Anyone have any thoughts on this weapon?

    Best use on a smiter, but they are usally private duelers, so the slow makes it un usable...ok PvM, but nothing that special

    I have an ethereal Astreons Ward with a Zod. I think the weapon is quite superb actually.

    I use Astreon's now and I've been doing quite welll against most of the players I've dueled. I've even come close to killing those damn'd BOTD users. It is low ed, and only 2 to combat skills but I have found it to be a nice weapon. I duel with Zeal.

    well I'd say the potential of having a +4 to combat skills would be great for hammer, even better than a heart of the oak flail (which I happen to use) but the problem is with the fast cast rate, there is none, so it's pretty much only good for melee.

    Ok, this maybe off topic but does the +skills to combat varies??? and if I happen to get a +4combat, what can I get for it? (I thought It was nice, and also my only good unique from the pits, but no one wants it.... :(

    Crushing blow works on smite? I had no idea! (not being sarcastic, i really don't know)

    And yea, I've seen him I believe, if he's on ladder. If it wasn't him, it was another dude with Astreon's and a Ber slapped in it. I was thinking about making a crushing blow zealot for pvp. But I was considering using a Ber'd Astreon with the 25%cb from Dracul's, but the lifetap is just so bm.

    Thumbs up to Asteron's

    I personally think that Asteron's is a great weapon. ive got a nice ed 4+ non etherial. I use a vindi/templar pally for mostly public duels and the caddy is the perfect weapon. The 4+ to skills is great for both smiteing and FOH. The added damage carries straight over without the PVP penelty and works with smite. Crushing blow is almost a must have on a smiters weapon. Mine has a shael rune, as i need the ias to get to max frames but id love a bered one. i noticed for some reason that it seems to be better than my doom axe zealing vs monsters too. (in fact, i rarely use my doom axe anymore). Plus it makes a cool sound when you hit things. The slow is kinda BM but i dont get to too many complaints on it (but like i said, i duel mostly pubbys). So if you plan on making a V/T, then i suggest you at least give it a try if you can. I think they are pretty cool.

    Well I have it on my smiter when I zeal for pvm. I find it kills quicker plus I wanted to use it somehow so I figured I would give it to my fav character. The dmg on it is 208-240 one handed.
