    Yes, I must submit to ask this: Which is better v.v

    Screw it, I'm tired of PvP, PvM, PvAnything. Time to play D2 for its last run.

    I plan on making the 3 last chars I intended:

    Trangs Summoner (Just have to)
    Elemental Pally

    and Fury Wolf.

    Now, My question is to either:

    A) Use my BotD Zerker + a SS for him or

    B) Sell Zerker for Eth 2H Thingee:
    1) Giant Thresher
    2) Great Poleaxe
    3) Archon Staff (Really Costly, prob)

    Well, how should I go fuzzy friends?

    I would chuck Javazon, cool, but not for me. Can use the Chains of Honor on her for Dr00d.


    ~Kbob

    Oh yeah, and I will try Ele Blues Summoner

    well, if you have an eth botd zerk, you could trade it for all 3 of those items and then some... if it has good ED that is...
    i'd stick with the Eth Zerker if i were you....

    For p v p or p v m?

    Zerker for p v p...

    E-BoTD GPoleaxe for p v m. It's the same speed as GT and does more damage. A glorious axe might be a better choice even still (might want to check to make sure I know what I"m talking about) but it wouldn't have the range 5, which is.. nifty.

    I would prob do a little of both. No external IAS helps with a Wolf Druid, am I correct? What would be best Ammy then?

    I agree with mep here use the zerk for pvp and the poleaxe for pvm but if you are going to do a little of both then just keep the zerker.

    But the druid with Zerker will have 9/5/5/5/5

    How viable is that?

    Yah know Zerker is cool just because of its awesome power, but I really need to get myself off PvP. I get too stressed... I tell myself its a game... but I REALLY need to stop PvP and just enjoy slaughtering hoardes.

    I found something I like, making people happy. I play with a married couple and for the last 2 weeks, the have been trying to get a tals ammy to complete their set.

    Guess who got em one?

    The dude was like holy crap and the wife has almost in tears. :thumbsup:

    BTW, tals ammy is a healthy cost on ladder. Almost ist rune.

    Well I know I'm not real well-known on the forums or to most of you at all, but I currently play a lvl 83 Fury WW w/ BotD Zerk/SS as a purely PvM char which does quite well. In 8 player games, I haven't found a place I can't tank decently. I used to use Atma's Scarab for an ammy which helped out quite a bit because of chance to Amp, but currently use a 27% Mara's for res's. Dunno if this'll help you out at all or not, just my experience.

    9/5 is viable for p v p. Faster speeds are better for catching moving targets though..

    For PvP most people still use Highlord's due to its +1 skill and mainly deadly strike.

    the fastest any botd can get is 8/5 fury... so 9/5 isn't all that bad (although, that faster initial attack does make a dif in pvp... but we're talking pvm here)
    if you use a big dmg 2 hander botd, ur gonna have to find someway to make up the res lost by not using the SS...

    anyway... have fun, that's what counts... if i were you, i wouldn't be too worried about this...

    I posted on best pvp awhile ago i did all the calculations and all ... for pvm ... basically what it boils down to is the best two, two handers are glorious axe and gp. I dont know the exact #'s but glorious does more damage and is range 4 while gp does less damage at range 5. So it basically comes down to range over damage. I chose the axe b/c i always liked how huge axes looked on characters.

    Also the resist thing will be necessary but wont be hard to get ... i use um'ed jalals, highlords, tals armor, ravnes, carrion wind (im a rabid/fury mix), gores, rends and that gives me decent resist in hell with some small random resist sc's. But yea you'll want to be more concerned w/ getting resist than dr for pvm, unless your doing cow runs.

    The big axe is coo, but I like the big polearm look.

    Zerker was the dream weap, I made it, I was like... ok. I found out somethings about it:

    1) It looks dinky. After staring at a char that uses it... wow.

    2) 2H will crank more damage on a wolf. I want big damage.

    3) It's conformist. I'm conforming with this. NOOOOOO. I'm not goth or anything but .. bah.

    Btw, USeast lad, if you got Eth BotD Great Poleaxe, please PM me.

    gt and gpa botds have the same speed. botd gt needs 5% to hit the 4fpa. :rant:

    anyways, gpa looks cooler than gt IMO.

    9/5 fury for the zerk and 8/5 fury for the gpa. My wolfie uses those at the moment, still trying to get him some rends, anyways, he does 7k and 12k respetively iirc.

    i am more with speed however, so sometimes i would use my old school cpboq and cgtoq. actually i use those more often for pvp than the botds :eek:. i must have gone crazy.
