    Be on the lookout!

    If anyone happens upon an Etheral Archon Staff or a 6 socket Etheral Archon Staff, I'm in the market for one. It's not especially useful so I don't know what it would be valued at, but I do know it's rare, as I still haven't found one. If you find one, let me know and what you want for it. :D

    Thanks!

    I saw one of those, someone posted a pic awhile back in the Community Forum. Very nice damage and extremely low requirements ;)

    Awwww I was being all original, thought I'd found something no one had done, plus it has one of the best average damages in the entire game.

    Only War Pikes and Thunder Mauls have better average damages.

    After the ETH bonus and BoD ED mod of ~375% He's looking at an average weapon damage output of 600 - 700.

    Only down side I see is the limited range of 2

    Too bad that you can't rack for 1.07 eth Archon, it'd be one helluva weap! :D
    And from what I know about 1.07, finding Archon Staff of any kind, let alone eth is near impossible. :(

    I have never seen an archon staff drop of any sort in my two years of playing Diablo. That is sad...

    I've seen 10 or so, 1.10(including betas) only, in previous patches I wasn't that experienced at all. Btw I've seen Pindle runs comparison between some of the old members here, there were posts like:

    "~5500 Pindle runs so far, item types he never showed: Guardian Crown, Vortex Shield, Archon Staff"

    or

    "~4000 runs, item types Pindle yet to show: Caddy, Dream Spirit, Dimensional Shard"

    .....insane! :flip: Btw all those items were TC 90 pre-1.10, Pindle's chance to drop of TC 90 was 0,02% IIRC. :teeth:

    Btw Archon staffs can't be dropped by racks because they are "wooden", just like bows, that's the reason you can't see threads like: "check if my 1.07 Windy is legit" ;)

    Weapon Damage Rankings
    #1
    Thunder Maul - 33-180 - 106.5 Average Damage
    Etheral Perfect % BotD - 247.5-1350 - Average Damage - 798.75

    #2
    War Pike - 33-178 - 105.5 Average Damage
    Etheral Perfect % BotD - 247.5-1335 - Average Damage - 791.25

    #3
    Archon Staff - 83-99 - 91 Average Damage
    Etheral Perfect % BotD - 622.5-742.5 - Average Damage - 682.5

    Can the max damage compare to a Thunder Maul or War Pike? No way. The Thunder Maul is about 1.8 times the max damage of the Archon Staff. But look at the minimum damages. The Archon Staff has 2.5 times the minimum damage of both the Thunder Maul and War Pike, which in my eyes makes up for the lower max damage. A more reliable hit is more valuable than widely varying damages. Anyways, that's what I want the Archon Staff for. It has the single best minimum damage in the entire game.

    Plus, can't you just imagine it on a Fury Werewolf Druid? :love:

    Also, if I remember correctly Etheral items have an inate -10% requirements to them. That would put the Archon Staff at a whopping 30.6 (Does it round down or up?) Strength required. The Thunder Maul would come in at 227.7 Strength, and the War Pike would need 148.5 Strength/95.4 Dexterity.

    Really, though, how does it round? Is it .5+ rounds up and under .5 rounds down? Or does it always round one way or the other?

    Requirements on ethereal items are not 10% lower than on normal items, they are 10 points lower (for example ethe sacred armor requires 222 str, not 232)

    But of course this information can be wrong

    It's -10, not -10%, so in this case it's even better :)

    edit: wow, 3rd time in a row :) Must be getting slow in my old age :p

    Ha! A barb could use that baby at base strength! Thanks for the correction. I was basing it off my Etheral Ancient Armor of Self-Repair. It had 90 Strength Requirement out of 100, and everyting else Etheral is by %, so I just figured. Nevermind then. =)
