    What weapon for Crescent Moon RW?

    hey ya!
    I'm currently playing a lvl 84 (and climbing =)) tesladin on HCL-EUR. Just got hold of some new equipment and atm I'm flat out broke thanks to this pretty expensive build.
    My items:Griffons 19/13 (4/3 facet)
    CoH superior dusk 11%
    draculs grasp
    thundergods
    Waterwalk
    HoZ (pd)
    BK ring 3%
    Ravenfrost
    Mara 22%
    Charms: annihlus 18/12, 4 offensive skillers and some life skiller.

    Skills: max salvation, resists lightning, holy shock. 5 skills in zeal and holy shield, the rest I'm putting in sacrefice.

    My current weapond is a Crescent moon Phase with 103 max dmg. Pretty low I think but still, the -35% light kicks ass and its fast, very fast. Now, I'm thinking, is it better to go for a cryptic, BA or war spike for higher dmg but lower speed? I think I'm at 5fps atm, wich is OK since he's not a pure zealer and I need alot of +skill items for the aura, but will I stay at 5 fps with a BA or Cryptic?
    Suggestions?
    Help me please

    phase is the most preferred for crescent moon. hows the killing speed? it should be crazy fast already with -50 or so light resist and static combined with a 5fps zeal. if you feel the phys is lacking, id suggest to go for crushing blow with a pair of gores and crafted gloves. attack speed is the same, cheaper than a 3os xxxx and an um, plus phase looks better.

    The killingspeed is good, as you say, static and ~15k lightdamage really hits the spot on non light immunes. But its the light immunes I want to kill quicker, gore raiders is a good idea, putting those on but I need to keep my gloves, they give a good life tap and LL.
    btw, since I use a diadem and a duskshroud, the phaseblade looks huge :D

    Thx.

    I wouldn't sacrifice the speed for killing LM. Get a good HF merc and you're set.

    if you were reffering to the HF aura as a dmg source, forget about that. the damage is not synergied and completely sucks.

    HF is for slowing the enemies down.

    well what else but i don't get what a hf merc has to do with killing LIs... or wasn't that what you were referring to when talking about "LM"?

    or a might merc with a reaper's toll. The decrip will help kill a lot.

    HF is used for crowd control so souls won't spam you.

    I play with CTA on the switch, otherwise it would be a good idea yes.
