    The weapon will be used in one hand of a frenzy barb and the other hand will be carrying a BOTD Bezerker axe. Right now it looks to me like Doom would be the best fit but wanted to find out what others think.

    Doom or Beast would be best.

    the holy freeze is pretty nice for a frenzy barb i think, so i guess i would go for that.

    My Frenzy uses glimmer and deamon arch and Frenzy/Duel Throws, MAX Beserk&Block on switch etc.
    But to comment.
    Call to arms should be 5 soc phase blade for the no duribility native mod only IMHO

    I agree with all that speed (fanat and frezny) I think the slightly lower damage is made up for

    Damn you, how do you find that, not to mention the runes. Oh well, I guess I'll just go kill things in 8p with an upgraded Butcher's Pupil some more. Need to vent. :rant:

    The 5 socket bezerker came from the pit. I have found quite a few socket items there, although usually they have the wrong number of sockets. I dont have all the runes yet, still need the zod, but it is not that hard to trade for them, but they have gotten expensive again :uhhuh: . I liked it when they were first duped and you could trade about any mid level meph find for a high level rune, now it hard to get one for top notch stuff like tals armor. Guess since runes get used up they hold there value better during duping where items like tals and IK armor drop in price due to oversuppy.

    So far the best runeword I have a chance at making is HotO and that depends on wether the next Hellforge will drop either an ist or a gul. Either one will allow me to upgrade enough for a vex.

    I think the bottom line is, unless a player is keen on trading, which I am not, then most of the best runewords are out of reach.

    I just noticed I said I still needed zod. Well I do need zod for botd but the rune I was missing for Doom was Ohm which I was able to trade for last night. The weapon is great, not nearly as much damage as the botd but the freeze aura is nice and +2 to skills really kicks. The only real problem I have noted so far is that it costs a fortune to repair and needs repairing every few baal runs or every 20 minutes or so just playing the game.

    Problem I have with Berserk Axe's is the horrible durability and the fact that they break and break often. And they are not exactly cheap to repair...

    Doom is your best option, but be prepaired to repair the dumb thing about once every 15 minutes. Very annoying.

    Sorta makes getting your hands on a BOTD well worth the cost. Indestuction is a godsend...

    just FYI... 240 ED + lvl 9 fanat = over 400 ED

    most people look at the ED and forget about the fanat. Beast is GODLY as hell.. i prefer beast to doom

    Remember their is a cube recipe that allows you to repair your items. You just need an ort rune. It saves me millions of gold when im repairing all my runewords.

    1. DOOM if you can get the runes
    2. BEAST if you cannot get runes for DOOM
    3. CALL TO ARMS if you cannot get runes for BEAST
    4. ETERNITY if you cannot get the runes for CALL TO ARMS

    Do you realize that the fanatism aura from Beast helps to increase the ED from BotD as well (makes your botd become 600%ed)? Plus, you need that CB for pvm.

    IMO, Beast + Doom > Beast + BotD > Doom + BotD
    To be more general, if you use two weapons, make sure one of them is Beast. It is a good weapon itself, when you consider it adds ed/ias to the other weapon, it is godly.
