    Cystal sword Greif

    Just a quick question.
    Is this type of sword viable for dual weilding ww barb?

    Dex point saved all go to vita or str.

    Yes if it has more than a 34ias spawn to hit lwwp. Crystal sword is normal version of phase blade and has base weapon speed of 0 unlike pb which has -30 You will lose out in range as it has range 2. Maybe for PvM it doesn't matter hehe However a Grief Pb is much better as i find it flexible to mule it over to wolfbarb or other exotic projects for testing because of that -30 speed and being indestructible is the icing on the cake :D Cheers

    edit: Hmm crystal sword need 0 dex to equip and this is good for dual weilder as less dex = more life hehe

    If u wanna go base stats, i suggest u use flamberge grief, any ias on it will hit last break point and its range 3 as well not range 2 like crystal swords are. Even though theres no point in using swords, i have a bvc with all points in vita and he happily wields grief and beast zerkers, more damage, and most importantly resale value, i very much doubt u will be able to resale your flamberge should u ever want to do it.

    I agree -resale value isn't too great but for a PvM mf sword/shield mf barb thats a great sword to have i.e Grief Flamberge/Zweihander and all you need is enuff str to equip stormshield. This could be attained from charms, gear, etc :D @Lvl 59 you have your endgame sword that has ITD/PMH for the masses and ds hehe Flamberges/Zweihanders are much easily found than beserker axes and always get 5 sockets from Mr Larzuk and that could be their saving grace :D Also a less than 34ias spawn on zerker means it has to be muled over to your pally :(
