    Question about Beast

    Hey guys, I just formed up the runes for a beast and now I'm looking to forge it. Unfortunately I'm having some trouble. Arreat Summit says that it can be made in axes, scepters, and hammers. Now, there is no 'hammer class' of weapon, so I wasn't sure if this could be made in a flail or not.

    To cut to the chase --- can beast be made in a one hander? If so, whats some of the options I have?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hammers are War Hammers, Mauls, Great Mauls, and their exceptional and elite versions. Since War Hammers/Battle Hammers/Legendary Mallets can only get 4 sockets, Beast can only be made in 2 handed hammers.

    Beast CAN be made in a 1 hander though, in any 1 handed axe or scepter that can get 5 sockets.

    If it's for a necro, i recommend putting it in a scepter/axe with very low requirements, since you don't use it to attack, just for the skeletons. A War scepter, double axe, military pick, or war axe are good choices.

    If you plan on actually getting your hands dirty and fighting...then a zerker axe is typically the way to go...I would never waste the runes for a 2-handed beast weapon and especailly for a necro.

    ha, I had a 4os/5os eth/6os Cryptic Axe and a 5os sup PB but...yeah if you read my post in general discussion you'll see why I no longer do. Good luck with the necro though.

    in Bear form its still hard to hit things, due to poor AR (well at least my psnancer that wielded one for fun)....although with CTA (BO) and bear you can definately get in the thick of it....

    also i made mine in a 5 os zerker which is a 1 handed axe...good luck!

    I made mine in a beserker axe and I don't mind getting in and killing stuff, especially if it's something big like baal where the CB on Beast can really help make killing faster. Naturally, my Ar is low but at lvl 90, I still have around 25% cth baal, which is better than nothing.

    Also, meleeing Act1 monsters will help you get your first corpses for minions. If you're Merc has Pride, he tends to turn them into solid ice chunks so leave him to fight Zombies and you handle the Carvers.

    If you have angelic ring + ammy, and a couple CB items, Bear form can be quite useful for killing baal solo. Summoners are SO SLOW killing him...
