    Honor in war axe or twin axe

    hey guys, Im about to start NM and I am having trouble deciding whether I should make an honor war axe which does less damage but is faster or an honor twin axe which is slower but does more damage.

    Which would be better for a concentration barb?

    If you think a different weapon would be better please suggest it, oh but I do want to stay with a 1 hander.

    Thanks in advance

    war axe is pretty bad, its a normal weapon o_O
    Concentrators tank pretty well, maybe a 2h insight or honor would serve u better

    Getting nice bases can be a mission if you play untwinked or self-found. If you can get the runes to make another Honor just use the twin axe until you find a better base. Dimensional Blade is a little better and shouldn't be to hard to get.

    A Naga or Crowbill is ideal but you'll only see that drop from act 2 or so

    Actually I find 5os dimensional blades rather uncommon...crystal and phase no problem but dimensional seem to hide out in another...dimension. So if you find a normal non-socketed one hold on to it!

    Ral + Amn + Perfect Sapphire + Normal or Eth weapon = socketed weapon (random number of sockets from 1 to highest that quality or item level [whichever is lower] will allow)

    I keep forgetting this every time someone asks a question relating to sockets. Irrespective of qlvl and ilvl, isn't the max number number of socket 4 for anything that can drop in nightmare? And how does this apply to larzuk and the cube recipe? I don't have time to look it up now, someone else can confirm.

    *edit:
    So they won't drop with 5 sockets, but you can use the cube recipe.

    Thanks for your replies, but my search is over. I was scavenging in a NM cows last night and found a clean knout. Used larzuk to put five sockets into it. (larzuk always put on the max number of the sockets that the item can have).

    I was really happy with the find because it has similar damage to twin axe but is faster; it will do great job getting me a good way into NM.

    Btw are you guys rolling in amn runes to use them in a cube recipe that just randomizes the number of sockets on a weapon? I understand that they're not that uncommon but still seems like a waste, at least to me.

    What else are you gonna use them for? You can pick up lower runes and combine them to form Amns. And Amns are easier to get than socket quests.
