    REALLY REALLY stuck on Avenger weapon :/ Please help.

    I've looked through my mules and found a few decent weapons. I've looked at the guide and it offered some basic uniques. I have the following to choose from and I dunno which one is the most useful.

    Death Cleaver (non eth) - Nice dose of phy dmg + DS
    Fury Zerker Axe - Nice phy dmg + Open Wound
    Eth Razors Edge (zod'd) - Nice phy dmg + DS
    Azurewrath (cham'd) - Nice elemental dmg + sexy look
    Schaeffers - Really nice phy dmg + static\

    Any help is appreciated.

    Scaeffers is too slow. Since vengence is based off phys damage, I would chose one the zerkers.

    Would speed matter in a Vengence?

    That unique Dimensional Blade (can't remember name) would be a decent low-mid lvl weapon until you could use Azure...

    You are going to want a pretty beefy physical dmg weapon. A guide author suggests this:

    Beast, BotD, Griswolds (Complete), Stone Crusher, Shaefers, Asterons, Redeemer, and Runemaster are some of the better choices imo. Out of what you have listed I would prolly opt for the Razor's Edge s/Zod or Shaefers.

    You must remember that the more physical damage you have, the more elemental damage you'll have.

    I wouldn't recommend the Redeemer for Vengeance. At best, it's 180 avg dmg for Vengeance, at 10 fpa. The +dmg found on the Redeemer, Astreon's, Stone Crusher and Grief doesn't add to Vengeance elemental dmg.

    I'd say Schaeffer's Hammer, it's a godly weapon, just make sure you hit an acceptable attack rate.

    eth zod'd Razor's edge, its fast, and it has some nice adds like ow and ds, that will make killing easier a bit, but oath is a good choise too, and it not expensive ...

    +(175-225)% Enhanced Damage
    40% Increased Attack Speed
    33% Target Defense
    50% Chance of Open Wounds
    50% Deadly Strike

    Can't argue with those mods :) if the DC was eth I'd take the DC ofcourse, but you want as much phys dmg as possible. Razors is [0] with 40 ias, so you hit 9fpa with lvl 20 fana and with lvl 27 fana you hit 8 frames. That's if the calculator I used is correct, and I didnt screw up :p

    EDIT: .... I just realised how silly that was. Without fana you'll only hit 11 fpa >.<

    Possible 370%ED, 45IAS, +2skill, Freeze Target, HF Aura, 20%DS... it sounds very nice to me! If it's lacking in damage compared to others, I dare say the HF aura makes up for it. Max Resist Cold and Salvation and you get considerable damage boost in both Vengeance and HF.

    Though I don't think I'll have that many skill points to place into those. I think I'll go with Eth Zod'd Razors and use Gimmershred on switch for IM.

    Also I'm on NL so no Oath for me.

    if u play in pubs, doom zerker will be the best choice for avenger. (the holy freeze and vengence both recieve syngery from cold resist) Not to mention it slows down ppl. Good dmg, ds, ow, good speed, the best weapon for avenger.

    If u play in duel league where ppl consider doom bm, then go with either famine, fury, nord, bstar.

    i'm currently working on an avenger right now. i've tried all sorts of weapons. i found that nords works great in PvM. it does decent physical damage, and it slows down a pack of monsters when your surrounded. the ar boost is a great bonus too. when i find a near-perfect one, i'm gonna socket it with a shael.

    I dont think AR is really needed since conviction lowers defense anyway.
