    Recommended weapons for dual wield

    With all the possible runeword combinations, what do you feel is ideal and why?

    I'm basically looking for ideal weaponry for a ww/zerker although recommendations in general are much appreciated.

    That's the impression i've been given (mainly from pvp) but I've been trying a grief/LW and the cb/fade/might just don't seem to be enough to make it worthwhile

    For PvM (Bosses) I like ebotdz/beastz, for the following reasons.

    ebotdz.
    1)Fast,
    2)range 3 (or whatever they call it now),
    3)massive leach, lets me wear whatever else I want for rings (and I do swap to fcr ring for faster tele to bosses)
    4)indestructable,
    5)very good damage and even better with fanatasism from beastz.

    beastz
    1) awesome bonus to the ebotdz from fanatasism. This makes berzerking alot of fun
    due to the increase in speed (no ias jewel needed to hit last breakpoint), huge damage and AR bonus to ebotdz.
    2) excellent weapon damage, plus the crushing blow is great vs bosses
    3) easy weapon choice if you want to PvP ever.
    4) adds merc bonus
    5) oops also range 3

    I keep grief in stash for pvp.

    double phase greif is also a good pvm choice, not my taste.

    Yeah you can basically go pure bvc(just laying, gores, gui, dual leech ring on) without losing much. Or dual grief for a bit more damage.
    I did the calculations for a titan barb, the damages would be:

    I did some number crunching and with a decked out Titan WW build with enigma the numbers would be following(it ignores CB, OW and chance to hit though):

    Interesting results. I always assumed a max ED Beast in 1.07 Zerker base + Grief would be the win previously (for a WW barb), although your results suggest dual grief is the win.

    In PvP Grief seems the better choice since the bonuses with fanaticism isnt exacty that big or at least big enough to compare with dual grief.

    whirls are shorter so main hand damage is more important in pvp.. also AR important due to high lvl and def of opponents
