    Grief vs eBotD

    Most say eBotD zerker axe is the best weapon for a Zealer but im trying both and i keep finding Grief PB faster at killing both masses aswell as bosses.

    Is Grief better or am i missing something?

    Grief > BotD for most builds. Think of the +x damage as +x min and +x max damage. So your Grief PB has (let's assume an average Grief, +370) 401-405 damage (average 403), all while having base weapon speed [-30].

    Now, let's assume a perfect (400% ED) eBotDz:

    Base average damage: 47,5 (Arreat Summit -> Berserker axe)
    Etherealness bonus: 47,5 * 1,5 = 71,25
    BotD ED% bonus: 71,25 * (1+400/100) = 71,25 * 5 = 356,25 average damage.

    See the difference? A LOWEST Grief (+340) will beat the BEST eBotDZ (even with 15% enhanced damage) in average damage. Not to mention that a Zerker has base weapon speed [0]. Also, a zerker looks silly.
