Why aren't double axes more common for cta's?
Probably because they don't look good.
I like mine to be in flails so when I weapon switch you can't tell I weapon switched, it looks the same both ways. However this only applies to Hoto using characters. The downside to this is nearly dieing to Nihlathak's CE in a full game because your running him on your weapon switch...
I bet bnet people only know that flail and crystal swords are the only one handed weapons that can get 5 socket.
Intelligent - I can't tell if you're joking on not, but there are 1 handed 5os axes.
OP - Because you can use a Spirit shield in the other hand to boost your +skills.
Of course I know, I mean most people on bnet won't know double axes can have 5os too.
Ok, I read your post wrong. :grin:
I prefer mine in a flail or crystal sword, with more preference to the crystal sword. Double axes just look fugly IMO.
I have never even considered using an axe before to tell ya the truth. I have always just automatically used a flail.
Hmm, now i wanna go make a axe cta just to be different.
I'm moderately confused
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.
Easy enough to find crystal swords or flails of the 5 socket variety.
Goodie, thought I may have stupidly missed something.
I'm going to make one then, because y'know i'm "special" :grin:
I have 3 CTAs in Ettin Axes, and a Beast Ettin. I like Ettin axes...(highest damage 1 handed axe ftw. Zerks can die in a hole).
Ahhh! I can't seem to read today. I read Double Axe as Double handed axe...
You really suit your name...
cause everyone only dupes the fail/crystal sword ones. oh snapp
What's a fail sword?
I think he means "Flail"
A typo, I guess.
typooo, sorry. I know fail completely threw you off.
I always make cta's in double axe.
My favourite cta weapon
