    Whats the deal with Grief repair?

    I got a Grief on non-ladder for a non-GMB faith bow so the person could use it on their merc (traded it to a zon) and I was very excited because I have heard of their rumored hidden power. So I promptly slapped it on and entered the first hell cow game I found. Not halfway through the level, it was at 5 durability and I had to repair it. Not too bad even though I am used to a BOTDz so Im not used to repairing a weapon but whatever, I've got a Grief! well it cost me 200k to repair the thing so now I'm stuck looking for a Ral. Is there another way besides a Ral or 200k to repair this thing?

    Also, how would I calculate my damage for the Grief with my fanatacism on? I know it is much higher than is shown on the Lying Character Screen.

    Phase blades have an inherent Indestructablility mod in them, where as all other weps do not.

    Im assuming you now have a zerker axe, and the reason for such a high rep cost is b/c the 'Grief' was made in a sup. Zerker axe, making the cost sky rocket. Your stuck with using ral's and 100's of thousands of gold to rep lol. But look at it this way, its range 3 where as a phase is only range 1 :wink3:

    ya, its made in sup zerk and i noticed it cause the ed% mod. thats a shame, looks like ill be making alot of nightmare and hell countess runs just to get enough Rals to use it once a game and to say that i have one (non-ladder upps the bragging rights on the grief even if it is a 34/375.
    Should I try to trade for a phase blade Grief so I don't have to repair it or is it worth the extra damage?

    Ral rune is used to repair armors only, the rune you will need to repair weapons is Ort rune.

    I use a coh and it doesnt cost that much to repair. is it only because they are superior that it costs so much to repair?

    Yep, an item being superior increases the cost alot. I think also the base item type affects the repair cost?

    To see your REAL damage, use PPR's Weapon Damage Calculator.

    Then I run the risk of losing gold because I'm not a dueler and someone is going to bring in their Boner or Ele druid and try to get all their gold back. So I figure that I'd have to play in Nightmare if anything to "earn" my gold for "repairs"

    It makes me shiver just thinking about those repairs. :shocked:
    Don't claws have a naturally high durability? I might be wrong becasue the only Assasin is a trapper so it isnt like she ever loses durability on them so I dont really know but i thought they they could get into the low 100's with durability.
    But then again if you go down 90 durability the repairs would be astranomical :sad2:

    Grief zerks are meant for Pvp, since it rarely breaks in pvp and zerk has more range and damage.


    Grief Pbs are for Pvm, since they are indestructable even if its in a SUPPED Phaseblade, but these can still Pvp nicely as well

    2 solutions:
    1. Either use the grief zerk for pvp
    or
    2. Trade the grief zerk for a nice phaseblade grief

    Its up to you though

    Also wands, amulets can net 30K, necro shields, the rare occasion that a claw has skills, staves, and druid/barb helms often net 30K. I usually cow and pick up anything of worth, at least thats what I have been doing and I finally repaired it. 202k =(

    If trading a good Grief Zerk like 34/370+, look for at least a X/390+++ grief phase blade.

    I traded my 37/376/25 Griefz for a 35/397/-25 Grief PB :) i could have gotten better though, since that Griefz hits the LAST SMITE and LAST WW IAS breakpoint but I ain't fussy.

    So if I use highlords ammy and fanatacism (lvl 30 I think, torch 3, anni 1, highlords 1, andys helm 2, coh 2, bk 1) as my only means of increased attack speed, what should my breakpoints be if I want decent Smite and Zeal speed?
    If there is a thread on this I will use it. But if someone knows on hand then that would be great. Thanks all
