    ETERNITY worth working for?

    So I just found this baby in the Pit...

    Berserker Axe
    One-Hand Damage: 36 to 106
    Durability: 14 of 14
    Required Dexterity: 49
    Required Strength: 128
    Required Level: 64
    Axe Class - Normal Attack Speed
    Item Version: 1.10 Expansion
    Item Level: **
    Fingerprint: 0x658af22e
    Ethereal (Cannot be Repaired), Socketed (5: 0 used)

    Is it worth working my butt off to get the runes to make ETERNITY for it?? I haven't seen too many people that have made one (probably because they end up going for BoTD...which I would have done myself had this ONE more damn socket! ;)

    ...just curious if I should keep it or put it on the trade block.

    I would say no, just because the modifiers are not really worth the three enormously expensive runes it requires. :D

    There are no Eternity weaps at the SPF AFAIK...
    This is because the usefullness of thisr runeword is extremely limited. It would best suit a charger or zerker/conc baba, any build tha relies on dam and not speed.
    Without inherent IAS, this thing isn't worth the runes in most cases.(not all, however!) Imagine charger with eth Eternity War Pike... :flip:

    If anyone is interested in making such a thing, I just found a 5 socket eth war pike and would be delighted to send it to you, as I do not have the runes for eternity (and most likely never will). If you have the runes for it, you probably have played enough to have many of these socketed ethy pikes, but just offering anyway.

    just because it takes 7000 hours of gametime to find anythign above Um, it doesnt mean we dont play aroudn with unes, see what they look like in cracked caps. that is my dream. to be able to put high lvl runes into caps just for the hell of it. at th moment, the highest i can spare is tir, but hopefully i can improve.

    Which reminds me that I've still got that Zod laying in the stash of my one and only remaining SC char, waiting to be placed into something... :p

    As it seems, you won't need that Zod anymore, feel free to send it to me! :p
    However, if you like it too much to part with it, I still have one ethereal dimensional blade, waiting for BotD! :D ;)

    Eternity:

    Amn + Ber + Ist + Sol + Sur

    Indestructible
    +260-310% Enhanced Damage (varies)
    +9 To Minimum Damage
    7% Life Stolen Per Hit
    20% Chance of Crushing Blow
    Hit Blinds Target
    Slows Target By 33%
    Regenerate Mana 16%
    Replenish Life +16
    Cannot Be Frozen
    30% Better Chance Of Getting Magic Items
    Level 8 Revive (** Charges)

    This is a great runeword. Where else are you going to get a ~300% ED Ethereal weapon without using a Zod rune? Crushing Blow is incredible. "Cannot be Frozen" is one of the most sought after modifiers anywhere in the game. 7% LL and 33% slow target are just icing on the cake. Save Ber runes for Enigma? Can you get any more cookie-cutter? Screw Enigma, go for Eternity, one of the best runewords around.

    Screw Enigma, yeah! :clap: I thought I was the only one to hate this overpowered/rated runeword...I once had the oportunity to make one, but preffered CoH.
    Eternity isn't that great, believe me...It has incredible mods, but without the IAS you'd be bettre of with something else in most of thwe cases IMHO. :(

    I think Eternity would be tremendous for a Zealot. If you put it in an eth scourge you would only need 45%IAS to hit 4fps.
