    fortitude/grief item question

    hey,
    currently saving for a Lo rune to make either grief or fortitude for a barb. i'm rather poor on runes so i'll probably never be able to get another hr :p

    well whatever: i got an 14 ed/14 dur sup archon with close to 600 def and a 5os 7ed sup zerker axe. i'm a lil concerned about repair costs and i rather a convenient/lazy person when it comes to gaming and don't want to harvest gold all the time to handle the repair costs.

    which item is the better option in terms of comfortable usage?

    regards,
    riplix

    A non superior grief zerker costs 12k to repair, which is nothing. A superior one cost about 800k or more... With a superior you gain about 8 average damages, out of 400+. So its better not to make grief in a superior weapon. As for fortitude, its an armor, so it doesnt lose much durability. I use a sup one and it costs about 40k for every points to repair, but losing 1 point takes a while and i never have to repair more than 2 points at the same time.

    Grief zerker has the risk of not getting enough ias, so if its your only rune I'd make a Fort. If I could choose between zerk grief and fort, i'd pick the zerker, but its very risky >.<

    Hey you seems to have the same kind of luck as i do, here is all the rw i made to date :

    1x botd : 364/14
    1x hoto : 31
    1x grief (zerker) : 31/374
    1x infinity gt : 271/55

    1x Fortitude :29 :)

    I crafted that infinity yesterday, thinking the tide could turn in my favor, which didnt happen. Why is it always the same peoples that gets bad lucked? I would like to be lucky at this damn game for once. Just once. Hopefully, my superior intelligence and trading skills has earned me some sweet stuff.

    :uhhuh:

    My lucky days are here too..Found a 44/2 death's web in pits. :clap:

    If I were you or him^^(riplix),I'd make a grief zweihander(guaranteed lwbp),the 35 more max from zerker comes to virtually nothing when you factor in pvp penalty & max dr.
