    What is the better Base Weapon?

    Scourge 3-80 1hd, -10 base speed, 1-5 sckts, range 3.

    Cryptic Sword 5-77 1 hd, -10 base speed, 1-4 sckts, range 2.

    Berzerker Axe 24-71 1 hd, 0 base speed, 1-6 sckts, range 3.

    I know everyone uses the zerker but i'm startin to think different?

    Im still up in the air but Black for sure, and for end game either keep that or go for eternity, kingslayer, or beast. I'm looking for crushing blow , deadly strike, or open wounds. Main part of my build.

    Well i dont know statistically but paladins usually always used cruel war spikes etc to block lock melee. I dont know if its still really good but war spikes were awesome.

    Actually a buddy of mine put Doom in a war spike and it was wicked fast so maybe, lower damage than the 3 above though.

    war spike is range 2, 39 average, and VERY hard to get 5 sockets. Horrible choice for beast compare to a caddy. I don't think you can make a beast out of scourge as it needs a "hammer" and i am not sure if scourge is a hammer.
