    I'm pondering whether to upgrade this weapon for my Fanatic Zealot. It does not compare with Death Cleaver in terms of speed or the DS, but you can't ignore the heavy damage, bonus to A/R, and ML. I figure socketing it with a ED/IAS jewel, and using Highlords (neither of which I have yet lol :)) would make up some of the loss of speed and DS. I'm currently equipped with a Horizon's Tornado. So what does the SPF think?

    Thanks :)

    it's not too bad but without the IAS it'd struggle a bit with speed.
    IMO not worth the runes and just kept it like that too help lvling chars.

    It looks reasonable, if you can't find anything better, you may consider up it as the last resort (shouldn't happen). Just remember, it meant to be play for fun, so long as you feel happy about it, go for it.

    Imo it is not so much better than half decent 1h uniques and hence not worth the upgrade. Unless you have really no other 1h weapon available, then it might be worth it.

    no. you need ED%,IAS and Leech before you even start thinking about it IMO.

    I guess this is why questions are asked :). I'll stick with Horizon's until either a Schaefer or Lash drops ( :rolleyes: ), and in the meantime will try to get my hands on a HW to improve the damage I'm dealing out now.

    Thanks for the responses.
