    nice not-too-common merc weapon alternative

    well i had this 3os eth CV lying around and was wondering what to do with it.

    i decided to put crecent moon in it and put it on my barbs merc. he seemed to be weak first but now he sometimes kills pretty fast and sometimes rather slow. max dmg is 7XX.

    what do you think about crecent moon as a merc weap? waste of runes or kinda cool? the stats aren't that bad but i'm really wondering if its beaten by a non eth reapers.

    What is a "CV"?

    I have used a Crescent Moon Polearm on an ACT-2 merc. It seems to work very well.

    A CV is a Colossus Voulge, elite polearm. :thumbsup:

    Acctually, I think it's kinda cool. I have one on my lightningsorc. And I think it's cool to try stuff instead of just doing what everyone else does. :)

    i made one like htat a month of so back. i wanted to see how it worked with baal runs, specifically when attacking baal. even at 7xx dmg, if the CTC static was jsut a little bit higher, that weapon would be quite a bit more potent. as it was, i ended up going back to my previous merc weapon, because the CTC static just didnt help out like if a lighting sorc is standing right there :)

    while, not very expensive runewise, firepower is comparable to a bonehew. I used it on my lightning sorc for some time. Too bad the -35% LR doesn't apply to my attack. All in all, my merc still die sometimes, because this weapon don't have any LL, and if I keep a life tape wand on my weapon switch to safe my merc, I can't equip an lower resist wand to double my firepower against Meph. :(

    Last week, I found a 5os eth polearm,:D I switch to obedience immediately, that monsterous stick is garantee to have 370%ED and give you 1K max dmg on weapon. For what cost? FAL + KO + junk rune only!
