    If you are into maces like stormlash, you get the most out of Frenzy. Dual Eth Zod Stormlash with Frenzy = total obliteration.

    But yeah for axe wielder it has always being WW. Swords also can be useful for WWs but not as efficient. For efficieny in PvM and PvP, it is always the 1 handed axe.

    Well, I got a "way too slow for WW" ebotd pike and honestly I don't notice much difference between 1 and 8 player games. All drops like flies!

    Its slower by one frame. But an EBOTD Warpike has such excessive damage that most peeps won't even notice the difference. You might want to try your hands on a EBOTD Ghost Spear and see the difference.

    Yes the GPA will still achieve 4 fpa WW so its all good, its potential maxed damage (average damage tied to Ghost spear but Ghost Spear has a higher max but lower min) is not that high but it is still a range 5 weapon.

    I actually have an ethereal ghost spear (could botd it), but it looks like an overgrown fork, so I'll stick to the warpike thankyouverymuch :thumbsup:

    By the way, my botd warpike is rock-bottom:

    350% damage (varies 350-400)
    12% life stolen (varies 12-15)

    but it still PWNZ every monster in range... well, except those pesky spectres. LOL :rolleyes: Of course, gui's helm, highlord amulet, gore boots, laying gloves, forti armor and might merc help a lot :azn:

    I find that Frenzy is a pretty neat PvM build too, since it can dish out the damage, and also remain safe with various skills and tactics.

    Oh okay, thanks! I was wondering if i should 40/15 my arreats? or would a 40% ed jewel be enough? I also have a 13max/11 resis jewel? Should I use it or does it suck? What's 13 max compared to 40% ed?

    Just dum arreat's :) Use guillaume's helm. Deadly strike and crushing blow more than compensate the loss of +skills.

    okay so i got frenzy, but i dont like it as much as whirlwind. since ive already invested 6 points into doubleswing and 1 point into frenzy, should i reroll or should i just use double swing as my left click and ww as my right?
