    Base for Doom Runeword

    Hi.

    A while back i found an Ohm, and tonight i found a Cham. Alls i need now is a Lo, and a good base.

    Does it matter which of the 4 available elite polearms i use, and should i wait until i find an ethereal version?

    Wouldn't you rather do it in an axe so you can play with it on your own characters as well? I rather have a mercenary sporting Holy Freeze aura and 'Pride' or one sporting Might aura and The Reaper's Toll than one sporting Might aura and 'Doom'.

    But if it's really for the mercenary, just take something like a Thresher for good speeds and low STR requirements.

    nah it's just for my merc.

    Pride isn't an option for me, Doom seems more useful than Reapers as i'll be amping the buggers once i get me an Atma's.

    So you reckon the 6 fpa of Thresher and Giant Thresher is better than the 6.5 or 7 of the great poleaxe or cryptic axe?

    Probably not a huge difference but if i am going to make it i might as well do it in the best possible base.

    if you plan to use it on your mercenary, only make it in an ETH weapon

    the chance of getting that eth weapon is significantly higher than the chance of getting 1HR I think, not to mention 2-3...
    Eth weapons also require more strenght and you can just level up a bit, otherwise you will stay with a low damage weapon holding valuable runes.

    Did mind in a non-eth thresher for my might merc. Doesn't sound like much yet but later if you get an enigma it changes your outlook completely. The game becomes quite dull after that actually. What was meant by 'getting an Atma's'?

    Something like "when i find an Atma's Scarab Unique Amulet"

    I'm not sure what will happen if i ever complete the character, seems like there would be no point playing anymore.

    edit: woot i found an Atma's.
