    Gimmershred for an avenger?

    I found an eth Gimmershred today here are the stats.

    72-280 melee damage
    30 ias
    189 ed
    218-483 fire damage
    29-501 lightning damage
    176-397 cold damage

    pretty much my question is whether this would make a better weapon than say a light sabre, nords, demon limb, or bstar or even an azurewrath?? seems like it would be pretty fast and shell out some crazy extra elemental damage. Thought Id pose the question to the masters here to see if it broke down well frame wise for vengeance as well as maybe stood up against a famine or something. any advice would be pimp, thx.

    Ethereal Gimmershred: cannot be repaired, cannot be made indestructable because it is a throwing weapon, it is very good and it should last a while but in the end it will run out.

    avengers need big physical damage, the elemental damage on items pales in comparison to what the skill gives you (based from your weapon's physical damage)

    I wouldn't be so negative about the weapon. I think it's one of the better avenger weapons available, but keep in mind it's even slower than baranar's starl, which is already quite slow for an avenger.

    All throwing weapons when used in melee will lose "durability" after a few hits. Think of it as individual weapons breaking. Eventually the stack will run out.

    Durability is roughly 3*quantity on throwing weapons.

    I have one and it works great and swings uber fast for me. I can pound out about 5.6K of damage with every hit. I don't have sacrafice maxed either.
