    Beast RW: Best Wep for Avenger?

    Wouldn't the rune word beast be perfect for a Avenger?

    Beast

    Level 9 Fanaticism Aura When Equipped
    +40% Increased Attack Speed
    +240-270% Enhanced Damage (varies)
    20% Chance of Crushing Blow
    25% Chance of Open Wounds
    +3 To Werebear
    +3 To Lycanthropy
    Prevent Monster Heal
    +25-40 To Strength (varies)
    +10 To Energy
    +2 To Mana After Each Kill
    Level 13 Summon Grizzly (5 Charges)

    I happen to have a sup 5 soc Zerker and was just about to make it when i decided to stop and ask everyone here at the pally forum.
    The main reason i think this would be awsome, is the fact that after playing many zealots i feel like my avenger is hitting terribly slow. I noticed that beast has some very nice mods and most importantly has a lvl 9 fanat when equiped.

    Lvl 9 Fanaticism
    186 ed
    29 ias
    80% ar

    I know the 29 ias isn't very inmpressive but i thought that the ed, ar, and ias all togther added with conviction and vengence would make a deadly threesome.

    Any thoughts? If this is a good idea, what wep would u suggest. Price is really no consideration. Would a 5 soc caddy be good?

    If this weapon is a horrible idea for a Avenger plz give me some ideas of what u believe would be the perf wep.

    Thanks
    Anti

    I was going to try that myself. I found a Caddy and added the sockets. I just need a Mal rune to finish it off. Right now I use BOTD eth zerker, its slow but only takes a couple hits. If I get surrounded I just switch to Zeal and thin down the crowd.

    The 29 ias is the best mod since its 29 faster weapon speed, level 20 fana gives 35 faster weapon speed, iirc.

    Ias from Shael and jewels are different.

    You are better to go with the beserker axe than the caddy unless you plan on wearing some 10sias gloves or a goldwrap the whole time to make the 7frame break. To me I'd rather have the better dmg.

    unless you were in werebear form... then the caddy would put you right over the mark for 7 frames

    A caddy is -10 and Zerker axe is 0 base. And as an Avenger he wont be playing as a Bear. Looks to me like Caddy would be 1 frame faster with just the fan and 40 Ias built in, add 10 IAS to the zerker and there the same. But you have a chance of +skills on the caddy. You cant get a 7 frame attack either way.

    Yeah, I thought the same way. In 1.09, people would flash conviction and fanatism to get better result. Now, all you need is to hold on the left button. BTW, Beast is better than BotD IMO. Beast can give you a castable minion (bear) and a useful arua that also benefit your merc and bear --- very important in Hardcore.

    Yea i agree. I have botd eth zerkers, but thats what eveyone uses and i personally didnt think it to be the best wep for a avenger. I have a 5 soc caddy, war pike and zerker but i think i will use the zerker simply because of the greater dmg.
    I really like the caddy, and think its a much more "pally" type wep, but i think for the avenger ill need something that has decent dmg to make him a fairly decent killing machine.

    Question: What is the max amount of sockets on a Caddy?
