    rune master?

    i just found a rune master ettin axe with 5 open sockets?

    i didnt know that uniques could have that many sockets. this has the possibility of being one of the best pally weapons in the game i think.

    its atma stats are:

    Rune Master
    Ettin Axe
    One Hand Damage: 108-216
    Durability: 23 of 24
    Required Dexterity: 45
    Required Strength: 145
    Required Level: 72
    Axe Class - Slow Attack Speed
    Item Version: 1.10 Expansion
    Item Level: 86
    Fingerprint: 0xaab418d1
    +228% Enhanced Damage
    +5% to Maximum Cold Resist
    Cannot Be Frozen
    Socketed (5: 0 used)

    i think with 5 40/15 ias this wep could be better than botd in my personal opinon

    But who has so many 40/15 jewels? Maybe on Bnet but in SP...And I bet BotD zerker is still better

    edit: Perfect Rune Master with 5 40/15 jewels would have ~188-376 damage and it would reach 5 fps zeal (lvl 20 Fanaticism, no ias from other gear). BotD zerker would reach 4 fps zeal without any ias from other gear and its damage is much higher

    edit2: Also don't forget all other nice mods BotD has (ll, huge stat bonus, etc). And it is much easier to get Stormlash than Rune Master with 5 40/15 jewels (Stormlash would be better too)

    It is a rather nice weapon... finding 5 40/15 jewels will take you a very, very long time though! Probably better to use a collection of low-end runes, gems and jewels until you can assemble a collection of suitable things to insert, then use the unsocketing recipe to remove the temporary space fillers.

    Amen to that! Now just to be more difficult, I have an etheral 5 soc rune master I belive, how does a perfect etheral onw with a Zod and 40/15's compare for arguments sake? (Just to be fair since your BOTD is going to be etheral and needing a Zod. This just leaves you with the task of needing a mere 4 40/15's now :) )

    Perfect ethereal Rune Master socketed with Zod and 4x 40/15 jewels would have ~262-525 damage. And BotD is easier to get and better too

    How many totally legit BotD weapons do you think are actually out there? Both in SP and realms the runes have been duped to death.

    Yes. I know that, and it is stupid that people have done so. But I meant that it is easier to get BotD than perfect Rune Master with Zod and 4 40/15 jewels

    hey not every BotD is duped, i can assure you that... anywayz, i can imagne 5 reason what i would do with a 40/15 though... imo a runemaster is not really worth it

    Of course a runemaster isn't worth investing a Zod and 4x40/15's, it was just an interest question for comparisons sake. Come to think of it I've never even seen a jewel with both e.d/IAS and only a couple of max/IAS jewels so of course using the 4x40/15's is rediculous. :)
