i know a eth 350 botd is better than a non-eth 400 botd because of how damage is calculated.

I don't feel like pulling out numbers but i DON'T think you would notice a big killing speed increase between a 400% BoTD and 350% BoTD. It is the same deal as people overhyping 50% war travs over 30% war travs so much or a 200% buriza over a 150% buriza. Like you said in trade values it IS what matters but in regular monster bashing a 350% BoTD is still an amazing weapon.

I'd say it makes some difference although not a huge amount. While that extra dmg doesnt seem like much, once it gets multiplied by all the ed from skills its a pretty good amount. Plus if your rich enough to afford an eth botd berzerker axe you might as well pay for perfection.

No especially when you look at price/benifit ratio
Yes 350 is still good. No theirs not that much difference. But when you get to a certain lvl, little things can make all the difference in the world. Thats why I like my 412ed ethereal botd zerker ^ ^.

Damnit l2aider, you're beating me by 4%! I thought my 408% was the highest around! ;)
I thought BotD was 350-400%.... is the eth 50% added in the desciption? Or does the extra 8-12% come from being superior (thought they couldn't be socketed)?

The extra % after 400, comes from the item being superior. You can socket them in the socketing quest, and if I'm not mistaken you can also just find them, superior and already socketed.
Quick question for the 412% and the 408% luckey ******* botd owners, did you guys trade for them of did you make them? I have the runes for a botd, and I've had them for quite a while, I have like 2 or 3 six socket zerker axes, however none are ethereal, and I won't waste the 'zod' indestructable mod on anything that can be repaired in the first place. So i'm running the pit pretty much every day, hoping for that superior, ethereal zerker to drop. I haven't found it yet .. but man .. will it ever be a sweet moment when I do.

Damn, I found an ethereal (non-superios though) Berzerker axe two days ago. I let a friend have it though, as I needed a Ethereal Collussus blade for my first Conc Barb. My new conc Barb will be axe-wielding, but I doubt I'll ever get the runes.

I socketed mine myself Squigi, I'm not sure about l2aider. I remember he traded for his old one (which was 400/15), but I didn't know he'd gotten this new one.

Wow .. that's awsome. When the day finally comes that I find my zerker, I hope I have the 400% luck .. :) .. I managed a 370% Doom cryptic axe, so fingers crossed. :)

Thats a beauty hal, and yes I did make mine. I just happened to come across a nice eth superior zerker in the trade forums. How many rolls did it take you to get 408, and whats the base ed.
12% I believe, and I got it on the first roll (whoodie whoo), lol ;)

Use the new recipe to remove all the runes inside the weapon; then reinsert new runes.
