    quick question .. everyone prob. has

    I was looking at 2 hander BotD words ...

    t-maul = 30-180 -106.5 avg. (6 frames)

    giant thresher = 40-114 77 avg (5 frames)

    eth ribcracker ... dont have stats on that to be honest .. 5 frames

    which would be a better investment for a fury ww... i have both t-maul and gt etheral on ladder so that would help them a decent bit dam. wise.

    I'd go with the giant thresher since it's the only one with a nice speed and good range.

    I think the Thresher would outperform them all in the end. Although an Elite Ethereal Ribcracker would be quite decent...

    why not an eth great poleaxe? range of 5 and 86.5 average dmg on a non-eth one but it's 10 slower than GT.

    It might be impossible to find, but I just made BOTD out of an Eth Glorious Axe. I have a 5 frame Fury, and it does 441-911 damage (390% BOTD). It has range of 4 too. This is the ultimate Fury weapon. Speed + damage + range.

    Wow, that is pretty nice Uppercut.

    Santino: I'm not sure if 60% IAS on a GP breaks the same frame as it does on a GT.

    I'm also not sure if GPs get 6 sockets. I think they do, but I had a flash of doubt...

    Done a few lil more research ... i would appreciate some oppinions .. right now im thinking cryptic axe ... higher average and faster .... and isnt THAT hard to find.


    cryptic axe: 33-150 (91.5 avg.) 5- frames & 5- range
    gp : 46-127 (86.5 avg.) 5-frame & 5-range
    archon staff 83-99 (91 avg.) frame-6 & range - 2 (koolness factor in staff
    cb ... bah wont even liist ... but frame - 6

    Max sockets in cryptic axe is 5, so kind of hard to make BotD in that one :p

    So what 5 socket runeword are you going to socket the Cryptic Axe with? ;)

    BTW, with my BOTD Glorious Axe I am doing 7000-15000 damage. Lots of STR and HoW maxed.

    hahahaha DOH well hey at least i TRY to do research before asking questions. Also even if cryptic isnt possible .... why not giant polaxe ..?

    glorious vs. polaxe
    glorious range 4 / avg. dam. 92 /speed 5

    gp range 5, avg./ dam. 86.5/ speed 5

    okay ... axe may look kooler but based on stats it really depends on whether you like range or damage more. I am a HUGE fan of reach though so IMO polaxe is greater in stats .... HOWEVER ... axe definitly owns it over all b/c of coolness factor ..... i might go glorious axe shoping.

    How in the name of god do you get these runewords? Find a hacker and trade him an arm and a leg for them? I've never seen a zod drop and neither have any of the people I've spoken with... these are people with a dozen 90+ half for MF'ing only.


    Also, I've got an eth 6 socket maul. Any good for this? Or should I hold out for something higher end (example: war club).

    Make sure you find an Eth Glorious Axe. Base damage is 90-186, so the median damage is 138.

    If you are wondering what a Glorious Axe looks like, here it is. I get bugged all the time with people asking to see it :)


    Save Target As... to see pic.

    IMO eth botd gpa outbests them for a fury werewolf, range 5, higher damage, requiring less str. IIRC, it has the same speed as a GT. 8/5 fpa fury.

    I don't know, I'd say Axe>Poleaxe. But I'd have to try them both to see how much of a difference the range made... *hinthint* :lol:

    Speaking of eth. giant threshers... say if you found one in the pit, would the socket quest reward give it the max sockets (i.e., 6 sockets)? And how much would this be worth if it did?

    Thx for the info... of course it's not like I'll have a zod rune anytime soon, so I guess I'll have to trade it somehow.
