    Tomb reaver too expensive!

    Hi i need a eth tomb reaver with 3 oc to complete my druid build... but its so hard to find one, and so expensive!

    i'm wondering wat is the next best 2 handed weapon, for a fury druid, i'm trying to get more damage and resists.

    And what is the best 1 handed weapon? more damage better

    plus i'm a PvM build

    An alternate two hander is ebotdgpa but it is also expensive and it doesn't give resists. A normal three socket Tomb Reaver with three shaels is a low budget option, oath of some sort might be an option as well. The best one hander is grief PB.

    would a 3oc tomb reaver, with 2 ohm for 50 ed, and 1 shael be a viable weapon, since the ed from a ethereal weapon is only 50ed

    Unless I've missed something, 2 Shaels and a slvl 2 WW is enough to get you to 6/4/4/4/4 Fury. Adding a third Shael doesn't get you to the next breakpoint.

    If you using a non eth tomb reaver I'd go with 2 shaels + Lo. This will give you 6/4 fury and some nice deadly strike, which will help with the lower damage.

    The 50 ed bonus on ethereal items is added to base weapon damage which is then multiplied by affix ed. With an ohm it's added to the affix ed so the damage is not the same.

    Agreed, even a mid-ish EBotD GPA is superior to the Non-Eth TR. The range is a godsend and the speed difference isn't huge, and +30 Stats is always a good thing.

    eTombreaver seems like the most overrated weapon in this game. Besides Hammerdins and casters, which can be killed with rabies, etc, neways... why would any1 use it unless pvm?

    To me, I'd say just use a giant polearm Breath of the Dying... u get nearly the same damage, a lil' less, and range 5 too. pfffft, resists, u can get that anywhere... with the money you'd save on the stupid tombreaver u could get a perfect anni and torch and resist/life charms.. i dunno, use your imagination.... unless you reeeeeeeally wanna waste one million sojs on a eTomb. just my 2 cents, every1 uses shield in duels neways

    Well I hope he doesn't listen to your 2 cents because eth Tomb is easily the best anti caster two hander. I don't think for PvM you need to shoot for an eth Tomb though. Lower your standards if it's coming down to completing your character in time. Eth 3 socket Tombs aren't exactly something you should wait around for. Lots of weapons are viable in PvM. EBOTD GPA was mentioned a lot and is great for any build.

    It is THE best 2-hander for pvp druid. Hammerdins are hard to kill with rabbies oO. Eth tomb + shift fury is the way to go. Ebotd gpa is range 6.

    You really cant kill good hammerdins with only shift fury. The better ones wont ever tele on you if it is that youre waiting on. Find an opening and get a fury or rabies in.
    Ebotd gpa is range 5, tomb is 4 if im not completely mistaken.

    The OP was talking about PvM, not PvP.
