Weapon skill isn’t that big of a deal while leveling. The main benefit of weapon skill at 60 is reducing damage lost to glancing blows.
You shouldn’t be fighting mobs that cause glancing blows while leveling. The 5 weapon skill is still worth something like .2 hits and .2 crits which is probably enough to make it better.
You want to be living with the best weapon u have, so I wouldn’t take any weapon specs talents until 60. If I play my gnome warrior, I’ll likely go 2H whatever.
I’m pretty sure slam wasn’t normalized, so the axe is best at that level. If you can afford it, The Pacifier was a BOE 2h Mace you could get off the AH with a speed of 4.00 that only requires level 32.
This Build is fairly straight forward unless you have chosen to use storm shield, simply dump enough strength and dexterity to use your gear and put the rest of your points into Vitality. If you have chosen to use a Storm shield equip the storm shield and enter hell mode, have a monster hit you to make sure the stat sheet has refreshed and check your block % then proceed to add points in dexterity until you reach 75% (max block).
Helmet: 3 sockets or Life on Hit for more survivability Fill the rest with your inventory with charms that have these three stats; Max Damage, Attack Rating, Life.
Barbarian Increased Attack Speed Breakpoints On Path of Diablo Whirlwind is using vanilla whirlwind mechanics, which means that it has a fixed attack speed allowing you to use extremely slow high damage weapons.
With High-end Gear I recommend Farming these spots: Actually this build is perfect for leveling simply get a melee splash jewel and maintain your frenzy buff.
Use Cleave to kill large packs of creatures as it not only has its own AOE but the base attack benefits from a Melee Splash Jewel. You may need to save more than one skill to access them so plan accordingly.
Note: Feel free to add extra points to Natural Resist while leveling to avoid death, you can always respect later. Important: Make sure to run high lightning absorb against diablo and Mephisto and make sure your resist is 125 over max while Fade from treachery rune word is active and use your Storm shield and Death setup for Tristan Diablo and Diablo Clone.
Uber Handrail and Uber Equal will be fairly straightforward make sure to drink some antidote potions and bring some with you for Handrail but for the most part you will simply find and kill them no extra tactics. Uber Muriel requires scouting the desert and trying to drag him back to the starting location on top of the waypoints, if you are a WW barbarian you will need to kill any additional minions you have dragged or your WW damage will suffer massively.
Important: Before beginning the Uber Tristan fight make sure to equip your treachery and enter the River of Flames waypoint, move towards the entrance to the chaos sanctuary, and you will see 2 large pillars with flames underneath at the entrance to the river. Stand in one of these columns of flames until your treachery's fade props (this can easily be determined by watching your resists sheet and seeing the numbers turn blue) Once your fade is active to equip your regular armor, enter and begin the Uber Fight.
Wouldn't it be great to use a good shield in the offhand if that is the case? In my current case: I should then remove the oath, because it does way less damage than the grief phase blade.
Wouldn't it be great to use a good shield in the offhand if that is the case? No, when you block there is an animation, when you are a WW Barb, you want to continuously move and heal through the incoming damage.
It would technically be a waste to add a grief, unless you REALLY want that +life and +MANA on kill. All the other stats on grief count when you hit an enemy.
While a target is in range, one of the weapons' speed is constantly used to calculate the next hit-check frame. If there's no target in range, the game will alternate between weapon speeds to calculate the next hit-check frame.
This extra skill is a huge boost against boss level enemies, as explained in our. This extra skill can help a ton against high level enemies because it improves your ability to hit them, as explained in our.
Some Maces, unlike Swords, are also designed with caster classes in mind (Intellect / Spell Power), which means they will not be ideal for Warrior s. Daggers are often neglected by DPS Warriors due to their very fast attack speeds, but it is this same trait that makes them some of the best tanking weapons around.
Tanking Warriors benefit more from faster weapons than slow ones because these provide steadier Rage generation, and more ability to quickly dump extra Rage with Heroic Strike when needed. Warrior can use ranged weapons, but they are little more than stat sticks for them, with the added benefit of allowing pulling from a distance.
Crossbows, in particular Black crow, make for some of the best prepaid ranged weapons for Warriors in the game, as they tend to have very useful stats. Keep in mind that while Crossbows and Bows use arrows as ammunition, you will need bullets for Guns.
You can still use them to pull enemies from a distance, but you will generally be using ranged weapons that grant you extra stats, instead. You should always have a Shield available in your inventory for tanking and other situations that demand you to play more defensively, such as when running away from enemies you cannot defeat.
Dual-wielding, while viable, is not recommended (even for Fury builds) due to hit and glancing blow limitations that will lower your damage significantly while you lack max-level gear. If you still want to go for it, consider using the talent Unbridled Wrath instead of Booming Voice, for extra Rage generation, and use the highest damage one hander you can get.
Finally, for tanking, it is important that you use your highest DPS oleander, in order to get better Rage and threat generation (faster weapons are slightly better, as well). Because they are quest rewards, you are guaranteed to get them from your first full dungeon run, and they can last you for a very long time.
Maraud on has a lot of good two-handed weapons for Warriors, such as Princess Threads' Scepter, Gator bite Axe, and even the guaranteed Resurgence Rod, from the Corruption of Earth and Seed quest. Keep in mind that, if you choose the Rod, you miss out on the alternative quest reward, Thrash Blade, which is one of the best one-hand weapons in the game before Level 60 gear.
Depending on what you are looking for, there are many sources of weapon upgrades, but you will mostly find them inside dungeons and raids, with the occasional quest reward thrown in. This is especially true for Human players; Fuel'Serra, obtained through the Fuel'Serra quest line, is an amazing prepaid tank weapon for non-Orc tanks; For Orc s with large purses, buying Axe of the Deep Woods and Flurry Axe with gold is a great pre-raid option; A budget option for poor Orc s is combining Ice blade Hacker and Bone Slicing Hatchet, which you can get from Ra's Frost whisper and Male the Pallid, respectively; Death bringer drops from Onyx alongside Vi's'key the Blood letter, and both are great weapons, especially for Orc s and Human s, respectively; Annihilator, crafted with Blacksmithing, is a very expensive weapon, but also a very strong tanking weapon, with the added benefit of providing a sizable damage increase to your raid with its armor reducing pro.
Bashguuder, from GHK Bashed, can be used as a less expensive, less powerful version; Daggers, such as Perdition's Blade and Core Hound Tooth, can be very useful to tank with, as they have high attack speeds, making Heroic Strike spam more effective (assuming you have the Rage required) and are relatively easy to get 305 weapon skill with (Edge master's Hand guards or Aged Core Leather Gloves); The unassuming Empyrean Demolished is actually one of the best weapons in the game, especially for Human s! Follow it up with Drill borer Disk or Mali star's Defender (for its high armor, although the stats are caster oriented) once you get into Molten Core, and with Elements Reinforced Bulwark once you go into Blacking Lair ; Speaking of Blacking Lair, Cruz'through, Edge of Chaos, Chromatically Tempered Sword and Mandate, Ruled Blade of the Black Flight are all great weapon options from this raid; Last, but certainly not least, Thunder fury, Blessed Blade of the Wind seeker is the ultimate tank weapon and can be obtained through the short, but involved, Thunder fury quest line.
Look towards Spinal Reaper as a great raiding DPS Axe, from Ragnarok himself; Demon shear is the best prepaid two-handed sword, and Bereaved's Edge is the ultimate two-handed prize for Warrior s due to its very powerful armor reduction effect, which is great in Eve and PVP alike. It also drops from Ragnarok ; When talking about raiding, Obsidian Edged Blade from Molten Core is one of the best two-hand weapons in the game for non-Humans in Eve, due to the ; Earth shaker is a strong weapon by itself, but its pro is what pushes it over the top for Warrior s in large scale PVP, as it can easily stun a lot of enemies at once; Of course, Sulfurs, Hand of Ragnarok deserves a mention, as the first legendary in WoW Classic, for its great damage and unique looks, it will take you a while to replace it for PVP purposes; When Blacking Lair is considered, Ashanti, Great sword of the Brotherhood and The Untamed Blade (estimated 1 pro per minute) are both nice for PVP, with The Untamed Blade also being good for Eve if you are a Human (dual-wielding is always superior, even with blue gear, however).
While Rank 14 weapons (such as High Warlord's Battle Axe) are among the best currently in game for Warriors, as they are for most classes, there are also a few notable reputation rewards you can chase. You can find a complete weapon (and armor) list for Warrior s at itemization.info, including filter options that allow you to restrict and / or order your search by phase, class, slot and other parameters.
