    Oaths are the way to go, cheap and very effective.

    I just read a post about this the other day. Someone said that if your going with Oath, then try to get an eth item for it cause Oaths are indestructible.:wink3:

    Sounds like the OP is into phase blades, which are inherently indestructible and cannot spawn ethereal. :lipsrsealed:

    Yeah, if I were Basewolf though, I would go with an 4 socketed ethereal Conquest sword. The base damage is higher, plus the extra 50% from ethereal = Very High Dmg Weapon. A perfect roll would bring 340+50=390%. So, 37x4.9 = 181.3 Min Dmg! :jig: Mediocre roll would be 275+50=325%=>37x4.25=157.3 Min Dmg.

    Phase Blade perfect roll would be 31x4.4 = 136.4 Min Dmg, which is still less than a mediocre roll for the Eth Conquest sword (136.4 < 157.3).

    GreyG: I've read some of your posts and I know you're an Axe-Barb coniseur (spelling?), does the math look good to you?

    However, I know the Phase Blade could more easily hit the last BP for Frenzy.

    Hmmm, what would GreyG do? :scratch:

    What about a Fury Phase? One of it's mods are +5 Frenzy, and good OW and DS is never wrong... But I don't knwo if it's worth the higher costs compared to an oath, Oaths would deal more dmg anyway. Except maybe bvb for which you wouldn't use frenzy I hope.

    Ps. pm me if you wants to buy my sup eth conquest, I know you are on Europe.

    Hey there. Although I personally don't have experience with frenzy, I've heard people have success with azurewrath as well. Perhaps crescent moon (for the static) and azure for damage? I'd wait for more opinions but azurewrath isn't too expensive!

    Good luck!

    I think a lot of you are missing the bit about not being expensive. Fury, ebotd ect those are all expensive. But for price I agree that oath is the way to go, the easiest way to get that eth dmg for the price.

    crescent moon will work nicely

    lightsabre is cheap and would work as well since you'll need dex for a phase, why not have two?

    I like pretty much any phase blade, particularly crescent moon & azurewrath

    I built a Frenzy barb around the Bul-Kathos' set. They don't give ginormous damage like these suggested blades, but I believe they would be inexpensive.
