    Please advise on temp weapon choice

    I finally found 2 ethereal Balrog blades for my dual Oath WW barb. (currently he is frenzy but he will respec)

    However I do not have the Mal runes yet and I will have to do some countess runs. Since it is very unlikely that I will get both Mals at the same run, I will have to make one of the Oaths first, and later on the other one.

    I have an Oath Conquest sword on my Zealot. Should I pair it with the first Oath Balrog blade while I am running for the second Mal, or I am better off just whirling with the first Oath Balrog blade without a second weapon or shield?

    I also have 2 Crescent Moon legend swords, they have better range but way less dmg than the Oath conquest and their main advantage will be unusable for WW.

    Or should I just frenzy with Oath+Crescent moon until i get the second Oath?

    On Countess runs, your damage doesn't really matter, just getting to level 5 as fast as possible. I would use the Crescent Moon swords so your Zealot can keep his weapon and go Frenzy for faster run.

    theoretical dps is higher with a single 2hand oath than even 2 oaths(assuming no charm damage and cb)

    It can be estimated through weapon durability usage, which in my tests has been that off hand weapon loses 70% dura of first, so combined damage is 170% of one hand damage
