    Help - Doom for Avenger?

    Heya. I've done alot of research and I think the Doom runeword will be best for my Avenger. The problem is what should I make it in? Berserker Axe or Phase Blade?

    The question is obviousely Berserker except for the fact that I probably won't have any IaS off of my weapon..... sooooo.....

    Phase Blade is -30 attack speed
    Berserker is 0 attack speed

    Doom gives 45% IaS and +330-370% Enhanced Damage

    If I do the math I figure that at 350% ED....


    Phase will deal 109-123 Damage with -30 base speed and the 45%IaS
    Berserker will deal 84 - 248 Damage with 0 base speed and the 45% IaS

    Which will actually do more damage based on attack speed? Thanks much.

    The breakpoints are...

    Phase Blade
    0 % 11
    8 % 10
    24 % 9
    54 % 8

    Berserker Axe

    0 % 14
    9 % 13
    19 % 12
    32 % 11
    54 % 10
    86 % 9
    152 % 8

    With no additional IAS a Phase Blade will hit at 9 frames and Berserker Axe at 11 frames. Even if the Berserker Axe is 2 frames slower it will still deal more damage, also with slightly more IAS (9%) you will hit 10 frames and 9 frames is also feasible, needing only 41%. I say go with the Berserker Axe, Vengeance gives so much %enhanced damage that you need the biggest possible weapon damage. Also if you want the "best" possible weapon you should consider an ethereal Breath Of The Dying Berserker Axe, it will give much more damage than Doom and it's also faster!

    :)

    Thank you very much (;

    I've considered a BotD weapon but I'm gonna play around with auras on my avenger. With a Dream helm and a Doom weapon I should be at least interesting to watch (;

    Don't forget that Vengeance damage is based on weapon damage. You want a high damage weapon.

    You don't really have much choice in which weapon to make Doom in, as they can only be made in Axes,Polearms and Hammers, so that counts the Phase Blade out completely :)
