I have a Astreons iron ward lying in my stash collecting dust. As this weapon is extremly rare and is quite wanted by people in the SP trading forum, i was wondering if it has any uses or if it's the extreme rarity which make people want it. Any thoughts?
Damage +40-85 (varies)
Adds 80-240 Magic Damage (I think is this is OK)
33% Chance of Crushing Blow
Slows Target By 25%
+2-4 To Combat Skills (Paladin Only) (varies)
+10% Increased Attack Speedn (-10 WSM)
It pretty muchs pwns as a PvM Smiter weapon. Excellent speed, CB, +skills and slow target make it just rock. The +damage is added after everything else (it doesn't show up on the LCS), and bypasses % and straight DR (which is why the mod is so good in PvP, as it ignores DR and the PvP penalty of 1/6)
Too bad for the slow target, or every PvP Vindicator would be running pindle/baal like mad for one.
As for zealots, there are better weapons out there that are cheaper and not as rare.
