    hc frostie question

    hi i was thinking of making a frost zealer on hc, and was thinking of a 6 shaeled crystal sword for the chaos santuary. But then i was thinking, why not always use it ! or not ??? It would be handy to have some/a lot of Cb, so maybe a black weapon or something or just a good fast weapon ??? suggestions plz

    Assuming you're using zeal as your left click:
    2 shael scimitar = 5fpa, 62% more needed for 4fpa
    6 shael crystal sword = 5fpa, 80% more needed for 4fpa
    4 shael phase blade = 4fpa...of course with the phase blade you're doing a pile more damage in the CS for IM to hurt you with.

    The best bet for speed and low dmg has to be the 6-Shael Military Pick.

    Things that aren't swords are all ugly...but I suppose he's right.
    120% in a warpick + 22% outside = 4fpa

    of course leeching is always a problem for low damage weapons. just use the military pick at chaos. there are a ton of speedy weapons with good damage you can use outside chaos; pick one at random

    is baranars good enough according to u ? im untwinked and might be able to trade that later on for some p gems or so. My ultimate goal would be a stormlash, with a black weapon on switch

    lol, i hate it when someone asks a question specifically to me >< even worse, i dont play pallies too often.

    anyway, bstar is fine but a bit on the slow side. but the base weapon type does enough so you can actually leech comfortably. id go with phase blade types as you can reach bps faster (see mouse's post above)

    stormlash goes for a bit on ehcl for some reason so that might be a prob if u play on that realm on west they go for pgems though. a good mid range weapon is lightsabre; the tiny light absorb helps, and so do the little mana leech. and its pretty fast too. and they go for like 5 pgems a piece!

    'Crescent Moon' Phase Blade is usually only used on Holy Shock Paladins, but it works rather well for Holy Freeze too.

    BStar is great for some added physical and elemental damage, but the 50%ias can be decieving since the base weapon type is somewhat slow.
