    Personally I would go with a 3%D/D Axe.

    BUT.... the top D line you can get is almost dmg between hammer and Axe.... and the top C line you can get is close to 1750 wich is enough higher than crit from axes.... am i right?

    If you look at this thread under the raw weapons section, you'll see the following "At 3/1, a hammer has 1063 DPS, 6.0% more DPS than the sword and 7.8% more DPS than an axe, but it's lack of crit means that it comes in second place for the "loser's category" of a 4x %Crit Damage."

    But that is for weapons with no gems or other gear. Just remember that I never finished that thread because I got upset by crafting 2.0.

    I wouldn't go with a sword ... the attack speed is not making any difference compared to axe ... yet you get nice crit with axes.

    True, but I would rather a decent sword than a crappy axe.

    Is that an exact duplicate? LOL. Also, love how 9146 seems to be higher than 9642... DSO/BP logic (-_-").

    Ready to feel a little dumb? :p

    The first one is before gems and compared to whatever he had equipped. The second is after he put the gems in and equipped it.

    Also, an "exact duplicate" is statistically impossible in this game. Given the range of values that every stat can have and the different kind of stats they can have the odds of 2 legendary 2H weapons being totally identical would be somewhere in the low quintillions (that is a 1 followed by 18 zeros). As just a rough calculation, Damage can range from about 40-110 in increments of 1, Crit can range from about 700-1700 in increments of 1, crit damage and % damage can range from about 30.00%-80.00 in increments of 0.01. That comes out to there being 70+1000+5000+5000=11,070 possible values for each line. There are 4 enchantments per item, so that is (11070)^4=15.02x10^18.

    Just nitpicking here : once I found a 2H staff with 23% dmg on it. :confused::p
  12. _Baragain_

    _Baragain_ Living Forum Legend

    Well that bites.

    And damage can go up to 113, but the fact remains that I just needed to be in the right order of magnitude to show how insane the odds of getting identical items is.

    I have found 1H weapon with 10-11% weapon damage few times ... that makes them slightly crappier than your 23% :D

    There are some nice ingredients in there. Good luck on getting some of the better ones all onto the same weapon.

    Just messing with you. :p:D
    I thought I'd try it.. So far I'm not liking it too much and it doesn't say anything about my DrHorrible toon, so I'll probably change it back.

    Transferred the 2 highest stats from that stupid sword I was using onto an axe! XD
    I can't complain it came with 2 decent damage lines as well.


    I need help, what is better for my DPS. 25% speed or 30% crit dmg? I keep getting same results from both of them but the crit dmg makes much bigger numbers...
