    Your highest damaging weapon?

    What is your highest weapon damage? Im not talking about with all your skills, just what the base weapon says.
    The reason im doing this is out of genuine curiosity and to show off my hone sundan.
    Eth, upped, socketed with an ohm, 40/15 jewel and a +30%ED/+15 max dmg jewel, created as of about 10 minute ago. Here she is.

    Hone Sundan
    Ghost Spear
    'Ohm'
    Two-Hand Damage: 136 to 1052
    Durability: 28 of 28
    Required Dexterity: 163
    Required Strength: 122
    Required Level: 69
    Spear Class - Fast Attack Speed
    Item Version: 1.10 Expansion
    Item Level: 99
    Fingerprint: 0x1b4fa12e
    +330% Enhanced Damage
    +15 to Maximum Damage
    +20 to Minimum Damage
    Required Level +7
    15% Increased Attack Speed
    45% Chance of Crushing Blow
    Repairs 1 durability in 10 seconds
    Ethereal (Cannot be Repaired), Socketed (3: 3 used)

    My first weapon to show its max damage in 4 figures, and when the plan is to put it on my might merc, i'll let you know how much damage he does on his character screen. Also, would a biggins bonnet (uber i know, but it has 30% extra damage.) make much difference to raw damage? I dont know where it would fit into the equation and how much of a boost it adds (if it goes in the same section as might, it wont make much difference at all and i'd rather put a vamps onfor the LL)

    Bob, that's just wrong on seventeen different levels, give or take four. Let's see, 30% of the min/max damage would be roughly 40-300, and I think that would be applied before Might, which is another, what, 70%? So...the 130-1000 ish, plus 40-300, times 70%. If I'm right, that'll be a LOT of damage. Roughly doing the calculations offhand, I'd say around 205-2300 or so. Nowhere near sure though, one of the stat masters will have to come in and verify my stuff.

    Nice damage but imho it lacks speed. Damage over time is the most important thing, I wouldn't be surprised if some faster weapon with less damage would beat it (and it would be cheaper too)

    edit: thx Sint :D

    I think you forgot the word ''not'' LPR ;)

    anyway, do you mean highest max or highest average bob? Since your max is grand.. but your low completely cuts it in half. (550 ave still is nice though.. )

    IIRC this won't matter too much.. the +30ED will just add up with the 330ed on the weapon. So instead of *4.3 you'll do *4.6 in your calculations.. so, not too big of a deal. You might aswell put on Andariels visage, the 25 strength will work as 25 ED (not sure if this works on mercs too) and it has far better stats.

    Hmm Ohm, 40/15 jewel...very expensive.Nice weap overal, although Tomb Reaver is better.Merc use only becouse speed is very(very) bad for decent char.
    Hate to see someone wasting ohm on merc weap's(ww ass) ;)
    p.s is there eth bartuc's your ass is using?

    Highest max or average damage, whatever you want. I agree that it's not that fast, but for a merc, with that CB as well, it'll eat baal alive.
    PS: i put it on my fishy who has a lvl 87 might merc and it did 1154-6646 damage when might was activated, according to the merc screen, and 1193-6869 with biggins bonnet on, so really not much difference, and i'd rather have the vamp unless i was going for some sort of max dmg record.
    EDIT: doomas: i had 2 ohms free (so i could have ghained an extra 10%ED if i used both, but even i wouldnt do that), and i dont want a WW sin, so i dont want to make chaos, and yes, thats a eth bartucs. I use it on my pyschic hammersin for the str bonus (so i could wear armor), skills and FHR. I could just as easily use a non-eth one, but wheres the fun in that?

    I'd have socketed it with something more versatile but to each his own. ^_^ It's certainly not bad for a necro's merc.

    Biggin's Bonnet won't matter much at all...it works the same way that Might does. Andariel's would be very nice and the mercs do benefit from added str...or at least that's what their character screen says...

    My biggest damage weapon is from 1.09 and is a Hellslayer with a 39% enhanced damage jewel socketed. I used it on my Zeal Paladin.

    It's not much compared to that beastly Ghost Spear:(

    Hellslayer 117-733

    One of my mercs also had a Cruel Warpike but I can't remember what kind of damage it did..

    Yes 200. +50% (ohm), 40% (40/15 jewel), 40% (ED/max dmg jewel) = 330%.
    I dont see the problem.
    EDIT: Oh wait, a typo in my first post. the jewel below should be 40%, not 30. You had me confused for a minute there necro.
    EDIT 2: Oh no, lpr found out my terrible secret, im teh n00b h4xx0r! my trademark is adding 10%ED to some of my weapons, for no apparent reason. :lol:

    My highest damage weapon...

    Wirt's Leg
    One-Hand Damage: 2 to 8
    Durability: 49 of 66
    Mace Class - Fast Attack Speed
    Item Version: 1.10 Expansion
    Item Level: 6
    Fingerprint: 0x1341138c
    150% Damage to Undead
    Socketed (3: 0 used)

    Should I use Ohms, RainbowFacets, Los or 40/15s?
    It's for a Strafe/FA Zon on weapon-switch. I plan to freeze them with a super long cold duration after maxing IceArrow and bash their brains with this!
    Please tell me. :(

    Tough luck! I dont believe in holding onto jewels and runes forever waiting for the perfect weapon for a build that i wouldnt really use. I have no builds that need a big hurty stick with 40/15 jewels, so might as well let my merc have it, that way i can move it around and let all my chars benefit from it.

    My biggest damage weapon? Why it's that cracked short sword that my sorc likes to try picking up off one of Pindle's mob:D. It really does do a lot of damage, just mainly to my character :teeth:

    [hijack time]

    Just wait a week or so and I'll probably be putting that 40/15 I found the other day up for trade. I'm mainly just deciding what I actually need now.

    *hands the thread back to FB*

    Everyone is missing one huge factor ... the 45% Crushing Blow that comes standard with the Hone Ghost Spear.

    Even on players8 the huge Crushing Blow makes up for loss of speed.

    Damage over time? That's damage over time.
