    The phrase "best overall" is way too general and subjective to even give an opinion. Even asking what is the most damaging weapon for ww is subjective. One hit of the whirl, all the hits...etc... :yawn:

    Actually a thunder maul does more damage than war pikes, especially with the str/dmg bonus. :lol:

    There's nothing to debate. The facts are out there, you just gotta do a little research yourself to uncover it.

    You need to choose whether you want best dmg/sec or highest damage on screen.

    Best screen dmg:
    Ethereal rare thunder maul
    cruel
    grandmasters
    mechanics
    of transcendence
    of (+20 max dmg)
    of self-repair

    Best dmg/sec:
    Ethereal rare war pike
    cruel
    grandmasters
    mechanics
    of transcendence
    of quickness
    of self-repair
    socketed with 2 shaels

    BoTD great poleaxe is up there too though - all the nice mods are great

    Don't discount a 3x shael Hone Sundan Ghost Spear - the 45% CB can add up quickly on act bosses and other monsters with huge HPs - the CB% on the IK Maul is what makes the set so effective for whirlers.

    If you want to kill enemies the fastest, go with the war pike.

    the damage per second takes into account both speed and weapon range. Thunder maul does more damage than warpike but is only range 2 (or 3, I forget) while a warpike has slightly less damage but has a range of 5 which means each target will recieve more hits per whirl. The other point issue is speed which will also effect how many hits there are per whirl. So the weapon needs to have a range of 5 and be able to hit the last speed breakpoint (-60, if I recall correctly for range 5 weapons). With ww, the damage listed on the screen is very misleading, because it does not reflect any of the above mentioned variables.

    I doubt a single one of these exists on all of BNet, you will never see one in your life so don't worry about it.
