Making a Axe grief - some advice

Hi, ive been wanting to create a grief weapon (in a axe), however I have only found an "Twin Axe" 5skt weapon. Should i keep searching for a 5skt "Ettin axe"? or shall i just create in the twin axe i have?

many thanks

Try and hold out and find a Berserker Axe or War Spike if you want to make a grief. BA is obviously better due to the greater range than other 1 handed axes, but you'll need a decent IAS roll (35%+ i think) for it get the fastest WW speed.

Ettin axes are just too slow for Grief IMO

Make in in a phase blade, except for a WW barb or if you need the range for other reasons (e.g.PvP). In that case use a BA. The problem is that Larzuk will add 6 sockets to both, so you need a little luck to find or cube one, in particular a BA.

BTW, you need 34+% IAS on a Grief BA, else it will miss the final WW breakpoint which will have a significant effect on its value.

thanks for the advice, ill keep a look out for either Berserker Axe or War Spike. I would do a phase blade like krischan said, however I maxed the axe mastery.

I do have a beast axe. So how does grief work with that? ie.
Does grief boost up beast by the +damage? or
The aurua on Beast boosts up grief?

many thanks

Grief won't boost up the Beast weapon, its +dmg, IAS etc. applies only to the weapon itself. The aura from Beast boosts up Grief attacks as well, however.

where the best places to find these axes? Worldstone Chamber 2/3?
You might also want to give Hell Pits a try (located in Act 1 Tamoe Highlands). The monsters can drop everything the WSK can, but are much easier to kill.

Zerker fo efficiency (although there is a huge IAS gamble on this one. 30-34 Grief Zerkers are quite hard to sell.), War Spike for style points.

For me, style points always win. Dammit. =)

i've rolled a number of zerkers this season before i stopped and none of them turned to 5os :*(. i always end up buying premade griefs instead. (not only cuz the base weapon but also cuz i can't seem to put the runes in the right order :p)

any ideas how much a grief costs?
About the cost of the runes + the cost of the item it's in. A little more for a good roll, a lot more for a perfect roll. The same for any runeword, really.
