avenger axe

While doing an mfing run recently i found a throwing axe
called glimmershred or gimmershred( cant remember the exact spelling ).
This thing has awsome elemental damage on it( roughly 1200 split -
- between the 3 ele ). I tried it on my avenger and got a nice
boost of about 1200 damage.
Has any other avenger found this and tried it?( only downer no socketing
cos its a thrower )
dont know what is good damage for this type of build but I do a top damage
of 4100 now( my bstar is now collecting moss )
A friend gave me a tenterizer and another nice weapon to compare
damage and this thing beat them hands down.
Oh happy avenger me.

Yea, Glimmershreds are really nice for avengers. Conviction would multiply the elemental damage by alot.

they are kinda as good for an avenger as they are for any other char. sure, the damage is doubled, but physical damage is effectively also doubled for an avenger (since 90% of the attack is elemental anyway)

that does not make the weapon less good of course. for the average avenger, this weapon equals the damage of a weapon that does 220 average physical damage (350% zerker axe)
