    Hellslayer

    Today I found this beast of an axe (lvl 20 fireball on it too), and it's the most damaging weapon I've owned aside from my IK maul. So, I want to use it; but on what? Some sort of were druid? I don't want to do another WW barb because that's what my IK barb is. I found conc and berserker barbs to be very frustrating. I don't feel like I have the equipment to PvP so I don't know if a charge paladin would be a good choice?

    Also, I think axes are far and away the coolest looking weapons in D2, so I'm excited to put it to some use. Any ideas?

    Hellslayer looks good on paper but performs rather bad in action. The main disadvantage of it is slow attack speed that can just barely be improved. I think there are better weapons available to Shapeshifters (like upg.Ribcracker staff, IK maul,...). The weapon performs particularly bad on WW Barbs - even with Shael rune it's still far away from the last WW speed breakpoint. You'll be hitting a lot less with it than you would with 2x Shael'd IK maul for example - a bad thing.

    Perhaps there is some hidden use for this weap that I just can't see? :rolleyes:

    Charge paladins, WW barbs, and weredruids would usually be the foremost choices for this kind of weapon.

    Hellslayer is [10], which means it's not that good for ww, not good at all. My friend made a fury druid in 1.09 with an eth hellslayer that did fine, though I doubt it would work well now. You can always try it :)

    Hellslayer is not for Druids.

    Maybe a Zerker Barb or a Conc Barb. No clue what they need for weapon speeds, but at least they can use outside IAS to boost it a bit.

    Meleenchantress might be fun :p

    make a barb whit trang set that uses only the fire spells, and fireball from the hellslayer :p maybee a bow on switch :p :p

    but seriously, imo it s the unique whit the highest difference between looking good and performing bad
