    One thing is sure in my opinion, for mortis, always 2H!
    When you learn how to play him, then it is just about having 8k hp and not too low armor(and ofcourse some resist) and then just more dmg, crit and critdmg to leech from mortis and ghosts.
    Even cloaked wrath can´t make it up. It is nearly only about leech, just get enough hp and amor to take a few hits, thats it. For pvp though, 2H is a real challenge. I can´t play with that low defense, some can, but i personally can´t.
    But one thing i really thank BP for, is getting the 2H into game. We all remember 2H before R103 right? XD
    Now its a big part of building a good DK. Its really worth it finding a good 2H nomatter how strong a 1H you have.
    Just look at Goodmood, thats just insane! (and come on Goodmood, mortis helm is by far the best, you just have to combine it with other gear that matches it better! :D)

    Good luck ID´ing, i have really been unlucky myself the last couple of times...

    There is one other advantage of a 2H not mentioned yet ... ... it alters your playing style !

    With a shield + sargon + 2 life shields, I'm a MF tank. I can stand in front anything and just absorb what's comming. This sounds fine/great, but it's actually boring as hell.

    With 2H weapon you'll need to move. Watch out what you're doing and sometimes even retreat or die. Makes things a lot interesting for myself but more difficult for teammates because they have to care for themselves.

    I switch to 2H this evening ... don't think I'm going back anymore. Can do m2 and Q1 on my own easily, Q3 in group is just fine. Whatelse do you need ??

    As a 2H, I can solo Map2 and Q1-4 using blues for some of Q4's bosses. I can solo the mobs in Q5, but need blues for almost all of the Q5 bosses if I can even do them solo.

    *Sigh*, my most recent failure. I can't argue that the speed line is a nice addition though. With it and my equipment/gems, my speed would be 1.59 and that is faster than some people are with a 1H weapon... Oh, like ME!

    But here it is... One of these days, I'll get lucky!

    P.S. I know that the weapons I keep posting are of various quality and are not "Showcase" good, but I'm posting them so that people can get a feel for the range of stats that can show up on a 2H weapon. Hope everyone enjoys.

    That is pretty nice. But none of your attribute reaches max value :(

    Yeah, I did compare it to Cloaked Wrath and it's less dmg so it got melted. I have one more 2-H sword, maybe it will be better, hoping for it.

    Yea, not that bad, but some of the ones I'm complaining about above are better than that. (The second two in this post for example)

    Nice 2-H man but that is not what am looking for since is does not have critical damage % wich is what I want to find with some weapon damage %, regular damage and speed. Somehow I have a weird filling am gonna need all the luck I can get to find that. :D

    I've said it before, but I'm looking for something with >90% weapon damage, a crit line of >600, and a damage line of >60. That would be a beast of a sword... but I will probably never get it so I soldier on in the meantime with my steam ax and enjoy it's 100% weapon damage and 350 crit (upgraded).

    In my opinion, you don't need a speed line on a 2H sword because it is already rather fast. My speed with a 2H sword with no speed line would be 1.57-1.6 (depending on if I am using Sargon's cloak).

    Yes, speed is absolutely useless on a 2h weapon. As far as I know, max speed for 2h weapon is same as 1h weapon. For 2h weapon, the main point is to abuse the higher dmg stats you can gain from it (especially with rubies for weapon dmg %). Even crit or crit dmg (which is a lot higher on 2h weapon) works much better. Speed on a 2h weapon is just a wasted stat. Better just full sapphire it on your weapon adornment.

    We all have likes and dislikes about 2-H sword's. I'am a F2P player I do not have high speed gems like you guys probably do. What I have is: 6x Polished (5 usable) - 2x Radiant so I need something like
    +6.5% Attack Speed
    +40% Weapon Damage
    +40 Damage
    +30% Critical Damage
    3 Slots
    That would be perfect for me! :)

    I think your aiming a little high. Goodmood's upgraded 2H sword has roughly 600 crit, 87 dmg, 6.3% attack speed and 45% weapon dmg. What you want are maxed out stat on all lines.

    I think it's reasonable to get per line from a 2H :
    > 450 crit
    > 50 dmg
    > 35% weapon dmg
    > 25 crit. dmg.
    > 10% attack speed

    So I'm looking for 70% weapon dmg, 450 crit and an other good line which isn't attack speed. opened lot's af 2H weapons, nothing came close to this.

    That was my old sword. But it had more then 600 crit. It was more like: 720 crit.

    Anyway I keep you guys updated. Here is my sword which I currently use.

    Not all the way maxed out, jut all of them at their upper ranges. I've seen these numbers in the past, I just want them to all show up on the same sword. And as per 10% attack speed, I've never seen higher than 7% or 8% on a 2H... Not saying they don't exist, but it would be even harder to get than some of the lines I'm talking about.

    EDIT: By the way Goodmood... 18M glyphs!?!?! Holy Crap that is a lot of farming!

    it is very rare to get all 4 attributes to its max. I would also say its impossible...

    It has nothing to do with f2p or p2p, the concept is the same for 2h weapons. Use 2h weapons for the dmg, crit value/dmg.
    P.S: My best sapphire is a polished sapphire. I'm saying this because speed is really not the stat anyone should be aiming for on a 2h weapon, not because I have good gems.
