Whats the best ww weapon?

:surprise:

No I am not asking that question.Its just a request to be a bit more open to new people asking such questions & others like "which is the best barb build?"...etc.

I realized it now.Its due to the new runewords & none of the barb guides have info on them except the recent zealbarb guide :uhhuh: .So they are probably a bit confused as to whether to stick to botd or use grief,whether oath is better or cleaver etc...So please dont point them to the stickies,you know the answers,so try & help them out. :)

p.s:You can do all sorts of things to people asking about ww breakpoints. :thumbsup:

There is no best WW weapon, because you need two of them for the hurtiest WW possible. :teeth:

(Myrdinn looked at the WW hit routine and something was added in 1.10: with one target in range both weapons have that same target; something I didn't expect would be added to WW, since Blizzard nerfed in every version.)

Gj,finally your records are corrected,so you can be trusted on ww info :uhhuh:

Are those results from Myrdinn recent?I think you missed the tests carried out by mcm a year ago,which proved that both weapons can hit the same target together from & after frame8.

I saw it, and stayed out of the thread. Those results from Myrdinn are very recent, done this month.

<3 you too. :) Has jordy spoken to you about it recently? I haven't heard from him in a few weeks.

IHATENAMES, a Berserker Axe is far better than a Phase as long as you roll 34% or more IAS on it. It has a larger range and even more damage, and as long as you roll 34%+, you don't need the extra speed from a Phase.

There are no bots. If you are good, you can use short ranged weapons. You do NOT use bots. :mad:

as a more general question:

2h or 2x1h or 1h+shield? that is untwinked SP though, so don't suggest BotD+Beast combos :p

IMO i rank the best weapons for a ww barb as listed bellow. This is of course for ladder play only!

2h - Breath of the dying made in eth great poleaxe (superior is even better)

2x1h - Grief Berzerker Axe + Beast Berzerker Axe (Sup BA:s even better)

1h + Shield - Grief Berzeker Axe + Shield (Storm or Phoenix). I suggested Phoenix for the & in enhance damage it adds. But it might not be the best choice (never tried Phoenix).

Eth razors edge has pathetic damage compared to grief, and the 50% ds makes the critical strike from mastery completely obsolete =(

And I'm sure you're better than blobs... =)

Phoenix is worthless. It requires 39847388748 dex for maxblock and makes for way lower damage than dualwielding or 2-handers.

well for nl i thought the 50% deadly and 50% ow has a consistency that botd lacks. plus, its small and looks cool :D i know it does less damage than either botd or grief, but still ...

a real problem sometimes is u a get a string of puny hits that does next to no damage and doesnt hit-recover stun either... eth razoredge actually has a greater rate of stunnage that botd does... and the open wounds ensures it does SOMETHING.
