    Grief Zweihander vs. 1.07 eth Oath Colossus Sword

    Hi all!

    My current goal is to make a cool sword barb. He'll lose some damage but I don't want him to lose that much damage.

    I think the coolest swords (and best choices for Grief and/or Oath, not counting with phase blades) are Colossus Sword and Zweihander.

    Since an eth 1.07 Zweihander will probably be very hard to trade, a 1.10+ superior eth Zweihander probably also and isn't worth ATMA bugging and a 1.10+ superior normal Zweihander would be too expensive do repair, I think I have three choices now:

    1- two eth 1.07 eth Oath Colossus Sword
    2- two normal 1.10+ Grief Zweihander
    3- combination of both

    I suck at damage calculations, so which one do you think would give him more dmg? And which one would you chose?

    I would make 2x 'Oath' because it's significantly less expensive. :badteeth: If you really like barbarians though, 2x 'Grief' will do more damage, regardless of the roll.

    Grief 1.07 Eth Zweihander:
    Base weapon damage: One-Hand: 28-78 (53 avg)
    Grief: +340 - 400 Damage
    Final damage (368-418) to (428-478) [393 to 453 average damage]

    Oath 1.07 Eth Colossus Sword:
    Base weapon damage: One-Hand: 39-157 (98 avg)
    Oath (High roll): +340% Enhanced damage
    Final damage: One-Hand: 171-514 (342.5 avg)

    The lowest grief 1.07 eth Zweihander will have 50 higher average damage one handed than a perfect roll Oath colossus sword and a high roll will have 110 higher average damage. The other modifiers on grief are much nicer as well: 20% deadly strike, -25% target defense, ignore target defense.

    I may try and rack you some eth zweihanders in 1.07 some time. I racked for a little while recently and was looking for those while searching for something else but I was lucky and found my target rack fast.

    A 1.10+ eth zweihander doen't lose much over a 1.07 one considering that it is not elite so I think it would still be worth it with a modern eth zweihander.
    1.10+ eth zweihander: One-Hand: 28-52 (40 avg)

    Thanks!

    I guess that I'll try and get some the oath bases for a start. Later try Griefs if I find a second Lo.

    I'm close to pat my Whirler (but he's now with a two shael bonehew) and two Oath would be a nice graduation present. Two griefs for barb Christmas if he is nice boy.

    That would be great Pyro :jig:
