    my dilema is i've also aquired the runes for botd but can't decide wether
    to make it in a eth giant thresher or eth zerker axe
    both will have there good/bad points
    g-thresher= insaine dmg
    zerker= safety with shield

    could any of u guys help me make up my mind as i played long and hard to
    get these runes and and don't wanna mess up with a bad weapon choice!

    Hi!

    For PvP, one handed is going to be superior to two-handed 90% of the time. If you do more PvM, however, Giant Thresher is the way to go. I'd do the Zerker, personally.

    Don't listen to raving Tor. Yes if you are PvM a nice big scythe is sexy, but for PvP and Resale value if you ever want to sell the weapon Bezerker Axe is the way to go.

    Don't trust Tor... :uhhuh: he has Strid for his tar

    Strid for Mod :drool:

    Tor's only saying that because he stole my cruel giant thresher of quickness. ;P He now has confidence in two-handers.

    But yes, I would make the zerker.

    I think a long range weapon will help you more in pvp because you need the range against casters, (smiters) and lets face it you will be dueling more casters than melee chars in public pvp. You wont need the shield in pvp so much against casters.

    Having said that, you have a very fine long range weapon there in the stormspire, which hits 4 frames fury correct me if I am wrong, so try that against casters.

    So I would not use the runes on a giant thresher simply because a zerker axe will serve you better if you ever decide to use it on a different char/build and it has better value than a giant thresher.

    Stick with the stormspire or other fast long range weapon like tomb reaver etc.

    course no one can really tell you're weapon when you're always shifted

    Thanks Tor.

    You give the best, most informative one line answers.

    I checked it, stormspire can't reach 4. Also botd giant threasher can't either. But I can see why botd would be a good pvp weapon.

    Also had a quick look at tomb reaver, the resists on that weapon would help against casters.

    There are some choices other than botd in a two hander.

    well thx guys you've came up with the goods again!
    only here on the druid forum can i get such friendly and helpful info :worship:
    well i've slept on it and based on the info u guys have given me
    i've decided to wimp out and go 1 handed. jova was right i think the stormspire should cut it for a two handed wpn,
    and knowing if i need to sell, my investment wont have been wasted
    i agree with thekbob, its much more fun wheelin & dealin as opposed to
    selling all your other characters good equip!(thekbob i'm sure you'll get your botd on
    ladder eventualy, i'll wish for a miricle and pray that a ladder zod will drop for u real soon :surprise:)
    well i'm off now to try and find me that eth sup six sok zerker! :wave:

    If you're going two handed, I would suggest that you used a Great Poleaxe instead of a Giant Thresher. They attack at same speed, only the GP has more damage.

    @Tor, baah, I have a 292% Dual Shaeled one ... :p
