    I know Zods aren't as rare as they use to be, but I wouldn't use one on a weapon that is class specific. Spread the love around.

    dont do it. youll probably get tired of using a spear on your amazon eventually. and then what? you'll wish you could give it to your mercenary... or barbarian... or druid...

    In my book, "not ethereal" --> "not good for BotD".

    Better ideas: ethereal Berserker Axe, ethereal Ghost Spear, ethereal Greater Poleaxe. If you're making a Jabber or Fendazon or something and would like a spear, upgraded ethereal Hone Sundan works wonders, and is a lot cheaper too.

    If the spear was ethereal, it would be a somewhat workable choice if you have a very special need for it. I chose a Great Poleaxe, but Matriarchal Pike was actually a close second during the decision making process.

    Well, the way I see it: if it ain't a bow, it better be ethereal. Most likely superior too.

    Looking at it from another way: the amazon builds that benefit from ebotd are not flying on +skills, so Spear >> Amazon_CSI (class specific item)

    Not a bad form for Silence though. Might be fun to play with.

    Wait for ethereal at the very least, if no eth superior.
    Nowadays finding the right base is harder than finding the Zod... :badteeth:

    it all depend on how much you will play the spearzon, if you can play it joyfully untill you find enough to make another BOTD.

    either way wait for a eth one may be a good idea.

    i just came across another thread talking about this:

    Silence

    6 Socket Weapons

    Dol + Eld + Hel + Ist + Tir + Vex

    200% Enhanced Damage
    +75% Damage To Undead
    Requirements -20%
    20% Increased Attack Speed
    +50 To Attack Rating Against Undead
    +2 To All Skills
    All Resistances +75
    20% Faster Hit Recovery
    11% Mana Stolen Per Hit
    Hit Causes Monster To Flee 25%
    Hit Blinds Target +33
    +2 To Mana After Each Kill
    30% Better Chance Of Getting Magic Items


    this is probably your best option for that thing......
