    What to do with an eth legendary mallet?

    I found an eth legendary mallet and was going to socket it, which I beleive will give it 4os. I know it's one of the highest base dmg weps in the game but it is also very slow, so I was wondring what would be the best thing to do with it? I was thinking of making a Oath runeword for the indestruct and 50%ias.

    Is there a better runeword to make in it? Also what kind of character would this be best on? A barb(maybe frenzy) or a fanat zealer? I'm open to any and all fun and interesting ideas.

    It's über-slow, and it really doesn't pack any punch - 55.5 average, while sounding high, just isn't worth it, when there's weapons like Berserker Axe, with [0] base speed and 47.5 average.

    I suggest you ditch the LM.

    Agreed. I found an eth stone crusher once. The damage looks tasty but it's so slow that it's useless.

    This makes me very sad, but I guess if it has to be thrown away then I'll just leave it on a mule forever cause I'm a packrat.

    You can't make Oath in Hammers. If you happen to cube 3 sockets in it, you could make a Black for a BF-sin.

    You could always imbue it and have a 0.00000000001% chance at 300%ed fools of quickness 2sox-mechanics of slaughter of selfrepair.....

    Even then it will lose the etherealness meaning its still useless.
    Save space, sell the hammer.

    That's just incorrect. Imbued eth items STAY eth. Anything that has to do with the cube except socketing will remove etherealness though.

    Upgrading won't remove etherealness as well :tongue:

    That's why you can sometimes meet Ethereal Phaseblades around :cool:

    From my own experiences with rerolling and this quote I was certain that etherealness was rerolled. Sorry for giving false information.
    (I would still sell that hammer though.)
