    Which of the new items is the worst?

    I'm not really sure which one of the new elite uniques is the worst. But Viperfork (mancatcher) is a really good candidate. I mean: The max damage is really bad. And the chance to cast poison explosion is of no use since it's very low level poison explosion. And the poison damage on Viperfork? Nah...

    Another good candidate is Wolfhowl (fury visor). The first time I found I thought: Cool! I'm gonna see a whirling wolf or, even better, a frenzied wolf! I was really excited as I BO:d, turned into a wolf and tried to whirl through a crowd of nasty little fellows. And than I saw it: the whirlwind symbol is red - it can't be used! The only usable skills are the druid skills which come with the helm. And they're all of very low level. Utter crap!

    Steelshade has got to be the handsdown worst unique in the game, I agree. No situational uses, any random rare helmet of its clv is almost guaranteed to kick its butt. I dont know what blizard was smoking when they made it, but it was a total waste of effort even adding it to the game, I'd be shocked to hear that anyone had seriously used it, EVER. Waste of programing effort adding it to the game at all, it has no use or purpose whatsoever.

    I'm actually going with Ethereal Edge.

    Who in their right mind would make an axe barb for this? ...

    I found Medusa's Gaze yesterday...blows. For a TC 81 Unique, Heavy Emcumbrance, 220 Str Req and 44% blocking. At least the Armet is a lower TC. I am not very impressed with the Unique Matriarchial Bow either.

    I would build an axe barb. The godliest of all rune words fits best in an ethereal zerker.

    And yes the unique armet is totally useless.

    1: Steel Shade.
    2: Tyrael's Might
    3: Annihilus

    And we shouldn't forget the reason why...:
    1. 4 poor mods on an elite unique and that lvl req is high...
    2. Crap mods for the lvl req and its incredible rarity.
    3. Soon to be duped massively (if that hasn't happened already) and impossible to find in SP.

    That doesn't make the item in itself bad. In my opinion Annihilus is one of the best new items.

    I still think Wolfhowl and Viperfork are very crappy, but I have to agree Steelshade is really, really useless. Maybe Steelshade is the winner in this crap-contest.

    Some of you have mentioned Ethereal edge with the argument "bad on barb". But on druid it's quite good. Ethereal edge can make a fury/feral rage-druid hit quite fast.

    Heh yeah just about anything beats a Steel Shade like Tal Mask, Peasent Crown, Crown of Theives....I don't see why anyone would bother equiping it, "DURRR LOOK I GOT 6 FIRE ABSORB"

    I think a lot of the new unique 1.10 items are usless though. There's like hardly any 1.10 items that are better than the 1.09. And who really cares about "Slain Monsters Rest in Peace?" That's got to be the crappiest hyped up mod I've ever seen.
