    Runemaster for Avenger???

    Heres the deal i have a 5 socket Rune master in waiting for my lv 84 Avenger, he is using a 319% nord's at the moment & needs a "poor man's BOTD" as i like to call it. My Runemaster has 5 sockets & was wondering if 2 sheals would be enough for IAS & 3 ED% jewels would be enough for this weapon to be effective in hell, i AM NOT A RICH CHARACTER so puting ohms in it would be out of the question,I looked at the Blood weapon crafting recipe for the zerker axe but my Runemaster already does 264% damage so making one might be kind of pointless if i can make this one work.

    So my question is would 2 sheals & 3 high ED% jewels do it for me or not?

    thank you in advance for reading

    Ettin Axe starts at 16 FPA. With 40IAS from 2 Shael you hit 12 FPA (34% breakpoint, which you'd also reach with Shael/IAS). Next BP are at 50%, 78%, 120% and 215%. 12 is actually quite slow imo, but your decision.

    That would not be too bad, if you had highlords wrath, and some gloves that gave you 20%, for a total of 80% IAS including the 2 shaels, this would give you the 10fpa rate, which is not too bad, with 120% and 215% needed for the final break points. All though, personally, I think there are better weapons out there

    It is a bad avenger weapon. It is a nice fana zealot weapon. Trade it if you want to make an Avenger.
    IMHO best avenger weapon not accounting rares are
    Horazon Tornado (ethzod if you can) <=- for avengers, it´s better than stormlash
    Doom Warspike
    Griz Caddy
    Beast Zerker
    HoJ Phaseblade
    Djinn Slayer
    (argh) BOTD

    I think you got two choices here.
    If I were you Id go with 4 shaels and 1 ed jewel. That way you get a lot of speed, because ettin+avenger skills, will give you 3-5k (i think). My avenger actully uses a perfect +3 3socket heavens light septer with 3 shaels in it. My speed is great, and the damage is 2-4k.

    like i said

    I CANT AFFORD HIGH END WEAPONS!!!! (i.e.... Doom, BotD, Famine, Beast & so on)

    I need a solution that is low cost but still delievers results at the same time.

    this is why i ws looking at the runemaster i have just need the right combo of spped & damage to make it work.

    Well since your so poor (lazy) not to try to get anything else...I think that the runemaster is fine. Put a combination of shaels and ed jewels in and your set. It'll give you around 3-5k damage which is enough for hell I guess...

    I AM NOT LAZY!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I just have really bad luck with MF & my trading inventory is very limited,so IF YOU DONT MIND DONT JUDGE PEOPLE YOU DONT KNOW!!!!!!!!!!

    Not everyone can afford a BotD , Doom or alot of the other cool runewords so we have to make do with what we have,THANK YOU!!

    sorry man, what realm and ladder/nonladder. If its USwest ladder, I can hook you up with one of those axe's for free. And by the way, your luck will come soon enough. I was just like you, and then one day I got a botd 4 free and everything changed. Anyways, I know you can afford an UM rune, so go for crecent moon in a phaseblade. that'll give more damage than the runemaster.
    peace

    sorry if i came on kinda strong but i try to get what i can but its not easy sometimes ,which axe were u talking about that you have that i could get hooked up with???

    You wouldnt have a BotD or a Doom with low ED that you dont want?
    I know that they are the most sought after weapons,but since you got one free i though u might be able to help out a fellow player.

    My acct names are:

    *wayburn
    *wayburn3
    *wayburn5

    Uswest Ladder

    The axe is runemaster. But, the one I have is only 3 sockets with like 270% ed...anyway, I have a bunch of pally weapons that im not using that I can get rid of. Talk to me tomorrow or saturday, I'll be on the acct *Jpech

    Btw, just cause I got one BOTD for free doesn't mean Im rich. It just allowed me to afford all the pally weapons I needed for my hammerdin. My only "get-rich-quick-scheme" that worked was my mf sorc, who I started from scratch (meteor sorc) and is now a 650%mf 45 sec meph running machine. Just be patient, good things will come.
