    They disam, they AI.

    They get LJ bonus from JOAT.

    They have a good swing speed and awesome DPS at 25 SSI alone.

    Why don't we hear about them more?


    I'm starting to think what weaps i need to get imbued now i've foun myself a rather kind imbuer.

    Without having slayers (it's early days yet) I'm wanting to make:


    Rune Blade, radiant schimter, Daisho, Hatchet (ornate?)
    44 HLD
    44 HML
    44 HSL
    25 SSI
    40 DI

    But that's a lot of relics?

    So if you had to choose two out of these which would it be. I know the benefits of each in theory based on feint/AI/DPS/1 or two handed... but what's the reality what would you use in practice?

    Im not going to max SSI because i can't afford it and will be using DF and hopefully turquiose ring.

    Really appreciate your input as i don't want to make a duff weap!

    Kind regards,

    Garm.

    PS. Stupid Miner, thanks for that awesome mesage you sent me lots to think about :p

    Actually, for PvP, seems hatchets are pretty common. I see lots of them on people working counts in Luna.

    Also, to save relics, dont imbue SSI, just go through dull copper runic hammers and keep the ones with 30 SSI on them.
    And sometimes you'll get lucky and get one with 30 SSI and a slayer too

    Hatchets and Bladed Staffs are the highest damage Armor Ignore weapons, with the staff being slightly slower, but with more damage.

    For PvM purposes I would go for AI, Double Strike, Whirlwind and Feint. So Radiant Scimitar/Daisho/Hatchet seems to be a good combination.
    Double Axes have Double Strike and Whirlwind and a ton of damage, but they can be hard to maintain at a high swing speed.

    Also, Relic Fragments come from Bronze Hammers, Valorite Ingots and Knight's War Cleavers or Guardian Axes if the perfect emeralds are too expensive.

    Although the hatchet is a good weapon in regards to pvp (I use one myself from time to time), it is not favored because you cannot chug potions while wielding one.

    Aye but for the RS/OA/RB/Diasho/KWC etc etc, runic hammers very handy :)
