    PvM WW: ebotd warpike or gpa?

    I've looked through some of the guides for WW builds, and noticed that ebotd gpa is considered one of the best 2-handed wpns. I'm wondering why ebotd warpike isn't mentioned often? I thought the ias was enough to jump that final break point.

    warpike's base speed = 20, so it doesnt hit the last ww bp.
    GPA does, so it does more dmg over time

    -jordy :rolleyes:

    ghost spear and gpa are your best bets. imo eth gpa is the sexiest of all 2-handed weapons :)

    i use the following setup

    angelic amu + ring + raven frost
    coh
    ik belt boots and gloves
    Botd ghost spear


    lvl 87, 495 str, 150 vit, dunno rest
    24x20 life sc's
    anni
    3 bo skillers

    3099 life after bo
    10k ww dmg
    13k AR

    Works like a charm, especiall when i play together with hammerdin friend of mine :D 17k dmg...

    average dmg on Gpa = Ghost spear (gpa has lower max dmg but higher min dmg)

    @riplix: who can beat the sex-appeal of an eth botd Giant Tresher??? now that's sexy :D


    hope this helps, i'm off to bed

    nn all
