worth upgrading this rare axe in ladder?

cannot remember if it is a large or broad axe (so would upgrade to feral or silver edged)...

328% ED
40% IAS
+1 barb skills
+5 strength
some cold resist and maybe one other unmemorable mod

then again, I have not played a barb in 1.10 yet so don't know if a 2-handed weapon is viable or not in hell. any thoughts?

thanks, yomo

aren't the 2-hand breakpoints -30 and -60? If so then even if it would be a silver-edged axe (which i think it would) then 0 + -40 + -20 (sheal) would also hit the breakpoint.

2-H damage would be around 265-471, which puts it in the same area as the other elite 2-H uniques, but fast enough to hit the 2nd BP. and the +1 skills would add 8% damage from WW and 5% from weapon mastery which adds, call it 35-61 damage on top of all other bonuses, not to mention a 3% increase in base life due to BO.

If I got 2 sockets, what should go in the second. I am assuming that this would be for PvM, since I think this weapon would get owned in PvP (correct me if wrong, but i think any 2h weapon except BotD would get owned). thanks for your input

Rare items get a default of ONE socket not matter what. Its magic that you have a chance to get two.
when you socket them, yes.
but rares can now have two sockets, if they get the corresponding affixe as a propriety.

I knew that rares can spawn with 2 sockets now; I guess I just made the assumption that Larzak would give either one or two sockets when you use the quest -- have not tried to socket a rare yet in 1.10, so I guess I have no idea if that assumption was valid.

Since he didnt list the sockets as a mod, and said "if i get" i assumed he was talking about the socket quest, which will only give rares one socket.
