    Fury = runeword..
    runeword = ONLY in grey items and not in blue ;)

    Fury in weapon depends on which char you will use..
    For barb -axe- Zerker
    For barb -sword- Cryptic sword/Phase blade
    For Pala Zerker
    For Druid Zerker
    For Assa Runic Talons or scissors suwayyah

    Err i think he means for the fury SKILL not runeword :p

    For smite: a Rosebranded Flail of Quickness with two sockets(UM UM or BER BER work good IIRC)

    2H fury: 3socket(or was it two?) Ethereal Tomb Reaver unique elite polearm, zod shael shael i think, it was a 4frame fury with insane dmg/mods

    1Hand Fury hmm, druid forums or the dragoon´s calculator for that one, to see which weapon can attain the 4fpswing fury and still have a viable dmg...


    Ohh almost forgot, another good smite weapon would be a Silence Phase Blade, see the mods and you will know why :)

    best Smite weapon would be a Rose Branded War Scepter of Quickness with +3 Fana, +3 Holy Shield on it (this weapon would NOT be able to spawn with any + to smite on it)

    i think an upgraded fleshrender looks nice with teh + skills crushing blow and other mods. however i dont know if range is important in fury or smite.

    i don't understand the "10 characters"?? Once an item gets to a certain ilvl it can't spawn with affixes to lvl 1 skills. One of the stat ppl would be able to explain better than me.

    ehhhh? The silence already has no difficulty smiting at max speed with fanat.

    in 1.10, chain lightning, lightning, and inferno are affected by fast cast, so such things are no longer needed. The set of breakpoints is different than those for normal casting however. The german calc has this i believe.

    If you wanted the fastest weapon, go with the cutlass..
    Rosebranded of quickness, get 2 sockets. I'd put an Um and a Ber into it

    cutlass has a -30 base speed for the paladin. you wouldn't get the +holy shield or the +fanat but the cutlass is a much faster weapon than the war scepter (in any form).

    Even the unique cutlass (coldsteel) isn't half bad, its got 20% ias, deadly strike and slows target. could put a ber or an um in that to give it more mods. (doesn't have any +skills obviously).

    Just had a brainstorm. What about beast?

    It would allow you to max conc, and then get a level 9 fanat. The weapon also has 40% ias. Put that into a Caduceus with +3 holy shield +3 conc

    The added ias and damage from fanat combining with the holy shield'd conc damage.. Could be potential. The beast also has open wounds and Crushing blow.

    It also has the +2 mana after kill which is like a smite mana leech and the prevent monster heal for bosses. Give you a bear for crowd controll too.
