Upgrade to Caddy and zod it?

IMO, no. Its a nice sceptor, but except for the ED, no other mod stands out as being particularly useful. By waisting a mal and then zod on it, you are denying yourself the potential of using BoTD zerker, of which even a normal non-etheral can pump more damage out then your souped up eth rare caddy.

Thx for the advice guys but everybody likes to think cookie cutter BOTD so no thx. I have one but it's no fun when everyone has one. Zzzzzzzz Upgrading to caddy with that nice tight damage range is worth an UM+FAL (not a mal) but as for zodding it I'll zod my etheral Baranars first for my upcoming fan elemental zealot. I like to duel in style and not in any time of private school uniform like most pubbies are.

for the sheer spank damage of it all..its decent. I got myself recently an ethereal fleshrender...cant wait to upp and zod that. its the extra mods that make it worth while. Im sure tho you have more than enough experience and gear to make up for the mods that the scepter lacks.

More power to ya!

And BAH to Baranars..Bah to the school uniform!!...give me the Janitors uniform cuz I still prefer my RANGE-OF-1 gimmershred!..haha :D

Etheral Baranars

More physical damage,More ias,Huge AR bounus,Stats

Gimmershred only has one thing and thats more elemental damage
so gimmersherd is weak compared to Baranars

Old skool owns it hands down

But it is TRIPLE the elemental damage (~900 avg dmg. vs ~300 avg dmg), so if you're ok for attack rating, the gimmer can be pretty sweet, especially since the physical damage on both items isn't huge anyhow. Depends on your build which one is best; gimmer definitely has its place (and not just on mules). :)

If you intend on making Baranars your main weapon (which I intend to do) then yes zoding it is good but if you don't intend to use it for you main weapon then break break break away.

For a avenger type build I say go for it. NOw the build I am making needs high ar, physical and elemental damage. Etheral Baranars provides all three.

I think it depends. If you've got enough of the runes, go for it. It's a nice weapon, with some good speed. If a zod was as common as el, and the upgraded runes were tir and nef, would you do it? of course. So, the question is really what your resources are. If it'll take months of trading to get the ZOD, then no, don't bother with it, but if you've got a mule full of them, go for it.

Damage will be: 221-245

As stated before, isn't worth to upgrade. Make an eth BotD instead.

37-43 base caddy damage...

55-64 Eth Caddy....

Well I can see where you coming from. I notice the veterans that have been playing since classic are gone. I have only been playing since 1.09 expac so I still like playing it. Althought the new sacred game looks like the new diablo. Until Blizz wakes up an starts doing diablo3
