    opinions on ww swords - mid value

    If this belongs in the trade values forum let me know.

    What is the best 2 handed sword, used in one hand, I can trade for an ist? I'm on Europe SC L. I've got a kingslayer champion sword in the other hand. I've got max res and 20 cb off-weapon. It's for PvM and I'm using ww

    I know this doesn't answer your question directly, but if your budget is Ist on Europe then i'd have to recommend the IK set for pvm. Your basically invincible and have quite good killing speed, plus you get decent mf

    the only really good pvm swords i know are grief (hard to find in a sword) and BOTD which is obviously out of your price range. Perhaps someone knows different. (I guess grandfather is an ok sword for WW)

    hope i helped a little bit

    Thanks for the thoughts. It's got to be a sword. It's a mf barb with 2 high ed upped ali baba's on switch, so I've maxed sword mastery. Is Ist overpaying for an oath?

    I would say that Ist is probably about right for an Oath, looking at the runes and the weapon you'd need to make it in. Ethereal 4soc 2h swords are not that common either.

    Not to shamlessly plug the IK barb again but it is probably the best mf barb there is (can keep those dual ali babas on switch for finishing off bosses)

    does somebody else have any thoughts?

    Oath would be best weapon choise for you. It's quite cheap, and still add pretty nice amount of damage.

    Eth Oath Balrog Blade (they always get 4 sockets form Larzuk so that shouldn't be too rare) is awesome for runes it needs.

    Good oath (300%+) = ist
    Bad oath = um-mal

    And yes, oath is probably the 3rd best sword out there, next to grief and botd

    Thanks for the feedback, I'll be looking for a decent oath then. I hear the comments about the IK set, but I'm wearing skulders too and since I've got sword mastery maxed and upped the ali baba's I can kill with them all the time (when solo-ing) and that really adds to the odds of a decent find

    IK maul is good, but 2h swords look way nicer and have better range ;)
