    Immortal King's Boulder Breaker

    Is it ever worth using? I understand that it, in general, compares badly with a Skorn, but could it be worth using at say 1600+ DPS and 175+ crit damage or does it always fall short no matter what.

    I tried using one with around 1500 DPS for the -5 HotA cost, but it was quite awful and understandably cost only a few 100k gold. IF you could find one with over 100 crit damage and you already had over 40% crit without weapon mastery, then MAYBE it would be worth something. I had better DPS and survivability Dual Wielding with an 1100 DPS main hand and stat stick offhand. Giving up the weapon mastery crit bonus from an Axe/Mace or the 15% damage bonus from a sword and using a two handed mighty weapon might not ever balance out in favor of the mighty weapon. Even if you somehow decided against using any crit chance and just went for attack speed, the extra 3 fury/hit won't make up for the super slow attack speed. If you happen to come across a 1600 DPS Boulder Breaker and it has 175+ crit damage - try it out and then keep it for the style points.

    Assuming money is not a major limiting factor and you're playing SC, there's simply no way to out perform dual-wielding weapons as far as I'm concerned.

    even a skorn vs 2 nice 1hand weapons is a tough match to beat.

    Right, especially if you're using a tornado build that scales damage bases on APS. A Skorn is probably still king for HotA builds though unless gold is no option in which case you could have two 1300+ DPS one handers smashing crazy crits.
