    Well it all really depends on what you plan on using it for? A Spear beats a pole arm in all aspects, but usually has low dmg and durability so it isn't advised for Pvm aspect of the game. It does however have a high range of 5 making it a superior weapon in PVP against casters.

    Thanks for replying so quickly, I want to make a SpearBarb for pvm, since they are so fun to manipulate.:prop: Oh and the spear i just found has 300 dmg so im good, and the durability isnt so bad either.

    I've seen a Barbarian with a Grim Scythe in games I join to take Travincal. It may have been you.

    I have it written, but on other comp

    (100%ed +20dmg)
    martel = 310?
    exec = 250? (1h damage = ? 120max? what about MIN)
    BH = 185 or 190?
    gothic bow = 160?
    the big crossbow thingy = 170?
    grim scythe=220?
    war sword (the 1h sword, not sure about the name) = ?
    polearm = ?
    lance = 350?
    pike = ? (220?)
    Naga=170?
    2h axe = 240?

    I'm assuming you mean 200% ed.

    The highest ED I've seen was 199.

    A goth can reach 169 max dmg with 199 ED and 20 Max dmg.

    your naga damage is incorrect. I personally traded away a 138, or 139 naga on non ladder a little over a year ago. *blee is I believe still the current owner of it. not sure if I can dig up a screen shot of it or not. Akukami may, if not, I'm sure he recalls the mods. (he usually knows my stuff better than I do :p )

    and you're absolutely sure it wasn't 128/129? Because I made another, and it came out 135 again. :scratch:

    only thing I can think of then is that my editor is screwing something up, I'm gonna double check to make sure I used 1H max, and not 2H max
