    What is the best item you own but will never use?

    Hello all!

    I was going through my stashes last night, and I saw some nice items that I don’t think will ever escape from the ol’ stash. As such, I wanted to know the rarest (or best!) item that you have, that you don’t think you will ever use.

    Rarity wise, I would have to go with the Executioner’s Justice. I don’t think any of my twinked characters have ever used axes, let alone a two-handed axe that has a level requirement of 75.

    Okay, I’ve shown you mine, now you show me yours. :D

    (And let’s please keep runes out of this, so this thread doesn’t spiral into one of those OMFWTF threads.)

    Thanks for taking the time to reply!

    Dave :teeth:

    Well, I have 5 zods, 2 chams, 13 jahs, and 6 bers, but only one sur :(

    Seriously, though, I'm not ever going to use this boneflame while I have my homun.

    Erm, well, Ive never used my v1.09 storm spire or cranium basher.

    Of the v1.10 items, probably Templar's might.

    Interesting topic.

    Right now I would say a Gris Redeption, I've found two now and don't see any use for them. They look decent but there are better options, as I understand it, and I don't play paladin's much to begin with.

    You never really know though, I thought my Death's Fathom, my rarest non-rune item, would collect dust forever in the trophy case, but after 8 months I dusted it off and handed it to my blizz sorc (who had been recently created at the time).

    I never move items between my characters, so my four Guardians have a bunch of really nice items I will not use anymore.

    An upgraded Shael-ed Fleshrender is probably the best of them.

    That's just wrong...

    Mine is my hellslayer probably, though there may be a time when I get the itch to make a WW barb with it.

    I can't see myself using Death's Web, Mang's, Schaefer's, Azurewrath, IKSC, and a ton of other TC 87's in the near future. Basically the rule is if it can't be used for magic find and it can't be used for PvP (or if I have better options), it's not going to be used at all. :teeth:

    Probably azurewrath. I just can't see myself leveling something past 80 just to use it.

    Stormspire and Steelpillar for me probably. Also lvl 85 requirement on Arkaine's Valor seems too high.

    @kabal: Venomancers are no good in PvP? I wanted to build one, I don't have Death's web though.

    Well for me it's Firelizzards Talon, if I ever make another trapper I'm rather sure I wouldnt use Firetraps

    Honestly, any item that has way too high requirements and/or is crappy for what it is.

    I don't have any aspirations to play "underpowered" builds - that is - use equipment that is worse than other items available just for the sake of using them. I'd rather play soft/hardcore untwinked before doing that.

    Like use a Wirt's leg to see how far i'd go. Sounds interesting but not my cup of tea.

    You can outrun poison nova by walking. If I had a valor, I would probably put it on a char once they got to 85, but never build something around it.

    As i wished to utitlize the most of my stashes, most of the items should be used at one point or the other.

    But I can't see myself using Stormspire. Luckily I don't have a templar's or an executioner's justice, if not they will be on the list too.

    I want to make pat/mats of all the sets though........ :lol:

    <OT>
    Without teleport (which is banned), anything with good range and a lot of frw is a nightmare fight for a venomancer due to pnova's short range. IMO any build with a half dozen matchups that are virtually unwinnable is ill-suited for serious PvP. Against well-prepared PvP'ers Death's Web isn't much of a help since they'll stack poison resist anyways.
    </OT>

    Speaking of level requirements, I always though Gladiator's Bane had way too high of a requirement for the stats on it. It's the best endgame armor for an ES sorc and it's a decent merc armor at times too, but usually there are better alternatives available at a lower level.

    Since I don't play SC anymore (though I may for a Fire Templar) I'd have to say either my Wolfhowl or my Flamebellow. I have been wanting to host a giveaway but it's so much work!

    I'll go with Earth Shifter.
    Honestly, you want to make a Caster. So why on earth would you invest 250+ Strength for this?!

    Hmm.. I found a perfect Thunderstroke. 200 ed and +4 spear/jav skills. I'll never use it, so I'm gonna trade it away.. since I have Titan's Revenge.

    I think the rarest item I have that is never going to see any use would be Gargoyle's Bite. I just found my second ones today, and honestly, they are just not worth using :mad: The Cranium Basher, with its lvl req of 87, is another one too, and the Steel Pillar, I only find the useless TC87 uniques it seems :rolleyes:

    A little birdy told me you own a Bramble Armor that you have not yet used. I would think that would qualify for you.


    As for me I would have to say Sander's Paragon. Have that in my stash and it is relatively rare and I guarantee you I will never use it.

    The rarest items I'll never use would probably be Templar's Might and Stormspire. I've got an Earthshifter and a Cranium Basher, and have used both. The Earthshifter isn't JUST a caster weapon. Not in the least. It does massive damage, has some IAS and CB to boot!
