If it's a ladder, then those are very few and far between. Seing only 1 in all the time that I spend in duel games. They've been out a while on Non-Ladder, but having one is all I lack in my collection of BotD's

I don't want to put you down or anything. I mean that is a really really great weapon you got there!! No doubt about that! And the low Str req is awesome. However, for straight PvM Werewolf Fury combat, I would rather put the runes in either a Glorious Axe or an Ogre Maul. Why? Because axes and maces have 150% ED to Undead or Demons. Also Glorious Axe has range 3 along with 92 damage avg. (Archon Staff has 91 damage avg.), and Ogre Maul has its 110 Str bonus and 91.5 damage avg.
All in all I think I would make a Glorious Axe, because of the ED to Demons.

Still, be proud of your weapon, dude, 'cos its very original and cool! :)

Yeah, it wasn't so much a decision of which weapon would do the most damage, so much as which weapon I thought was the coolest :) I mean, how many Archon Staves do you really see in the first place? My friend and I actually found a 3 o/s one not too long ago, so we made Malice and had fun running around losing life with the drain life mod. Every Archon Staff I find from now on will be made into some form of runeword, if possible :)

Axes doesn´t have the demon bonus, it was allways talked about but have never been added to the game... and Glorious is range 4, not 3...

Another thing: Staff also get 1.1 str bonus.. so he is only missing .5 avg dmg from an Ogre maul while potentially saving as much life as he wants :)
^^
Wrong, i just tested, they only get 1 str bonus, sorry :S... (could swear it also was on the 1.1 listing for bonus)

It compares badly because of the on weapon speed, on a WarSpike it does 8/6 fury, while a BoTD Berzerker Axe would do 7/5 ... Famine is better suited as a paladin weapon IMHO...

I can imagine a godly build with that. No str/Dex Go pure Vita. angelic/combo and you got the craziest pvm druid ever. Like 5k life w/o oak. and like 7k with... damn. Very sexY

That is not always truth in this patch... Remember the really tough ranged attackers... i think specially of the Archers, some combinations of dark archers in the pit are amazingly fast killers for example...

Still max vita can get boresome... unless it is HC ;)....

sick weapon, the odds to drop an ethereal archon staff are so low! :cheesy:

strangely, i would have sworn that glorious axe had 5 sockets max, at least i'm pretty sure it was the case in 1.09 :eek:

well not a total vita build, i didnt say dont put any pts in vita at all. having 1.5k-2k after shapeshift is enough IMO. thats if you didnt have oak. but i think you would, so yeah... not much pts in vita is needed, especially having 6k life is useless for pvm. only way you can die to that is stand there and do nothing for like 10 minutes. :)
