    eth BoTD CB or Zerker?

    This has been posted here by others before... Obviosely Zerker dmg far outstipps the CB, but the CB just looks so cool... Can a CB get over 500 max dmg if it's like 410%ed+?

    CB base one-handed max damage: 65

    Ethereal bonus of 50% would make it 97.5, which I believe LoD rounds down , so we'll say 97.

    5.15 (415% + original damage) x 97 = 499.55, down to 499.

    SO, unless I got the rounding system wrong, there is no possible way for an ethereal BotD zerker to break 500. But hey, it's close.

    I still prefer the zerker though...so much easier to get break-points, more damage (545), and I just like the way it looks better. Much more realistic and all. The big sword thing always makes me think people are overcompensating ;)

    So anyhoo, there's the response to the original question.

    There is only one, good reason to choose the CB: u can use it with 2 hands. When in a pvp tournament, that's really important (a glorious axe is too slow, a champion one has lower dmg). When going pvm, who cares about a shield when u have tons of life?
