    What build for my new sword?

    Okay, here it goes. I got bored, bought myself an eth headstriker, upgraded it. Gonna zod it too. What build would it fit on?

    The original stats of headstriker are:

    150% Enhanced Damage
    + (1 Per Character Level) 1-99 To Maximum Damage (Based On Character Level)
    (1.5 Per Character Level) 1-148 % Deadly Strike (Based On Character Level) (yay)
    Prevent Monster Heal
    +15 To Strength


    Iirc, with a lvl85 char it had ~280 maxdmg. This, combined with a 100%+ chance of deadly strike. Uhm, so. What char/build?

    It's attackspeed isn't really the best, so I thought something like a charger could perhaps use it? It might not be better than the usual botd, grief etc, but it looks cooler... The downside is that I can't shael it, since it needs a zod.

    Ofc, shaper druids are excluded, too slow. Zealot? Naaaah, not sure. Barb?
    Give me ideas!

    Use a Charger. The 100% DS is enough to make the damage massive. Say you get a 1000% ED skill bonus (That's low for a Charger), you'll deal 2.8K max, 5.6K after DS.

    I think max skill ED is

    675% Charge (Just using Torch, Anni, and BO)
    400% Vigor
    400% Might
    447% Fanticism

    That's 1922% ED. That's 8.2ishK before DS, 16.4ishK after. That's not including Fort, Pheonix, or any ED jewels in the helm.

    As I thought. I got a charger on nl, so I need the ladder to end anyways. Got all equip needed for it. Planned to wait til reset anyway, cant really afford a zod on ladder now anyway. :)

    You will need 60 IAS to hit 4 frame zeal, so yeah a charger. The range isn't that great though.

    Or even a conc barb.

    headstrikers are nice, i use an upd one on my 85 frenzy barb (not quite as nice as yours tho :thumbsup:) along with a lightsabre
    the ed and deadly strike are a good combo for massave dmg
