Frenzy weapons help

I recently started a frenzybarb and im wondering about what weapons to choose?

Is botd and greif the best choice?

Two botd any good?

I'll be using it for pvm, try some uberruns and such.

Dual Grief usually wins out on pure damage.

Usually most people use
Primary Grief
Secondary: Last wish, Lawbringer,Grief

For pvm I'd get Botd + Death unless you like fixing your weapons all the time. Also, even though they don't quite have the damage of Grief + Last Wish, they give more than enough for pvm--including ubers. You can even get by with Oath + Death. I used them in ubers until I got around to upgrading to Botd.

I'm sp and I use EBotD... dual.. I might switch the second for my Azurewrath (EBotD is Phase Blade btw)

Yes this is good combos, or you can just go God Mode, by using dual griefs.

God mode is false advertising as Grief is purely a offensive weapon. Last wish is closer to god mode than Grief as that has lifetap and fade which are defensive mods.


Maybe change that to that "Destroyer Of Worlds"

I think I'd also call it "Destroyer of Gold in Stash," especially if you happen to get a superior. Of course, this doesn't apply to phase blades.

15k isn't that much JEB besides anyone that makes a sup weapon for PvM needs there head checking:p


But certainly not god but it is safe but certainly not god mode

True enough, but at x2 it adds up. And if you happen to trade for something like a Last Wish, there's a decent chance that one of your asylum escapees has put it in a superior. I personally just find it annoying to have to repair in mid-run period. And for anyone that can't get through the game with Botd and Death, 2 x Grief isn't going to help. In the ubers, it will actually slow you down unless you focus all of your other gear on CB.

Im pretty sure you can clear any area faster with griefs than non-griefs by more than the amount of repair time taken by griefs. If you cant, practice that micro ;)

If you are pvm it is worth making one of your weapons Azurewrath, it breaks the physical immunities of most undead and gives you a good way to whittle down unbreakable PI.

One point in berserk more that adequately deals with PI's--even mana burners. Using Azurewrath seriously gimps your damage when a utility skill takes care of your issues.

As a general rule, Frenzy doesn't work in pvp at all. If anyone is bad enough to let you beat them with Frenzy, then it really won't matter what you use.
