    Just found Tomb Reaver; what to do?

    Hi all,

    I've just found a Tomb Reaver. It's stats are rather lowly, but it has three sockets. I remember people talking about it, but I don't remember what it's use was. Of course, I'm wondering what do to with it: employ it to the Merc of one of my characters (if that's a good idea) or trade it away. Could someone please enlighten me?

    I would go for a Wolf or a Wolfbarb, 3x Shael would make it an excellent weapon.

    Wolfbarb are barbarian build around the unique barbarian helm wolfhow, wich allows barbs to shapeshift in wolf form.

    Wolfbarb can either use feral rage attack or nornal attack only while shifted. So usualy you max out passive skills and warcries on such a barb.

    I've got one of these, tri-shaeled, on a fireclaw werebear. I charge up my one-point maul, and between that, my might merc, and my low tomb, I hit 4k physical damage. With 50% additional ias (highlord, laying of hands, and nosferatu's coil in my case), I hit a 5 frame attack.

    With only two shapeshift skillers I get a final damage of about 13 or 14k.

    Mercs could also benefit from a Tomb Reaver. I'm sure they would appreciate the resists.
