    You should get two of these

    Ethereal 'Breath of the Dying' Berserker Axe

    They will have lower requirements and do more average damage than a Colossus Blade.

    berserker axes are slightly better than colossus blades, but keep in mind the following:

    they look like kitchen knives. equip at your own risk

    I chose to go with dual ethereal breath of the dying colossus blades simply because they look cool. I am mostly PvM so it doesnt make a huge difference. I still kill well enough and i have decent/average equipment. I think i do 3.7k dmg per blade and about 4.9-5.2k with my might mercenary. It does take a little while to kill things but i wanted the look of the dual colossus blades. that was the purpose of my entire build. I can barely see the berserker axe on my paladin and i wanted to be able to see what i was using so i went with the blades. I dont have any trouble but the majority say that the zerker axes are better overall (looks not considered).

    Propaganda is not needed.

    It's a warning based on opinion, rather than fact. It would be like if I said that swords were worse than axes, because using a sword makes it look like the user is having to compensate for having a small member. :)

    lol... :)

    However, people compensate for small members with more horsepower, not wielding swords in computer games ;)

    Chance to Cast spells do not work with Whirlwind. If they worked, BvCs would be the kings of PvP. Imagine a BvC with 6.3k life whirling an opponent and getting a lvl 10 Life Tap to regen to full life in seconds. That would be too overpowered.
