Why aren't double axes more common for cta's?
Maybe I'm reading your post wrong: double axes are one-handed.OP - Because you can use a Spirit shield in the other hand to boost your +skills.
Ahhh! I can't seem to read today. I read Double Axe as Double handed axe...Maybe I'm reading your post wrong: double axes are one-handed.
Flails (41Str, 35Dex)
Crystal swords (43Str)
Double axes (43Str)
Military picks (49Str, 33Dex)
War axes (67Str)
Just so I know one when I see one, HotO goes in flails (since they're the only one-handed mace that can use it), crystal swords are for Spirits (lighter than broad and long swords, at 48Str and 55Str/39Dex, respectively) and double axes are for CtA. Etherealness reduces each Str/Dex req by 10, as well, but dual Spirits aren't bad to use on a Barbarian to hack the hell out of something at CLvl25.
