    e oath feral or e tomb reaver?

    Which would be better on a pvm fury druid (possibly fury/rabies): eth Oath feral axe or 2os eth tomb reaver with shael+zod? You can take into account just damage if you want to but I'm also talking about other intangibles (like +res from tomb or HoW charges of Oath), even including the cool factor of each. :afro:

    Which would you pick?

    well fatty..
    id rather the e-tomb although if i really had to choose id say no to both and get an upped ribcracker. also rabies sucks in pvm so dont waste your time there.

    You're right... I forgot about the upped ribby (how could i!). I suppose the 50% cb would trump the extra dmg/stats the others would give, at least for bosses & ubers.

    Thanks for the responses,

    Yep, as others have said that Upped Ribby is the best for PvM and Oath has coolness factory. In case you haven't made up your mind yet, I'll show you (read: brag) my beauties:

    Ribcracker
    Stalagmite

    Durability: 130 of 130

    Required Level: 58
    Staff Class - Fastest Attack Speed
    Item Version: 1.10+ Expansion
    Item Level: 87
    Fingerprint: 0x356f26e6
    +15 to Dexterity
    +100% Enhanced Defense
    +333% Enhanced Damage
    +30 to Minimum Damage
    +65 to Maximum Damage
    +100 Defense

    Oath

    Two-Hand Damage: 162 to 805
    Required Strength: 186
    Required Level: 49

    Level 16 Heart of Wolverine (20/20 Charges)
    Level 17 Iron Golem (14/14 Charges)
    Ethereal (Cannot be Repaired), Socketed (4: 4 used)

    Ribby is Perfect, socketed with 33/15 and Oath is 2ed from perfect, so consider them as almost best possibles :)

    edit. darn it, I should read a little, how old threads are. You propably have finished your druid in a week :)

    Re: e oath feral or e tomb reaver?

    naw, I'm slow. Plus the fury pvm druid is one of my "low priority" builds because I'm gearing up for a pvp fire druid and pvm singer right now. I just play my fury druid when i'm feelin like a break from all the crazy keyhunting/trading and rushing of other builds. Anyway, back OnT...

    Those weaps are sessy! Nice roll on the Oath, I'm impressed. I just traded for a 299% ed ribby (non-eth, I decided i wanted a faster attack speed in case I ran ubers) so I'm planning on socketing it with an ed/ias jewel also. Decided against the oath, though it's cool there is also a good deal of coolness in the "thump!thump!thump!" sound of a ribby :thumbsup:.

    So I decided on the ribby, though I may keep my eth tomb in stash and just whip it out for a friendly caster duel every now and then.

    Messerschmidts Reaver, Shaelled.

    Yes, it might suck, but its a classical setup, and its fun ^_^

    Hiya Fatty. How's life?
