    Grief, lacks dual leech but the higher damage output in comparison to botd partly makes up for that if you have sufficient dual leech from gear. For pvm that is. For pvp I don't think there is a debate...For one hand ww that is.

    if u just pvm then botd is the better choice due to the high amounts in duel leech andd stats.

    But pvp no debate Grief is just the better weapon

    if u duelwield the best combos are

    Grief + Beast
    Botd + Beast

    Neither. Use a giant polearm. If you don't like the polearm look, then go dual wield.

    Two-handed barbs are much better in PvM in my opinion, if you can get max resists without a shield. Killing is so much quicker. You can either go duel wield, or use a two-handed weapon, which is much cooler.

    Viable BOTD options:

    Eth BOTD Ghost Spear
    Eth BOTD War Pike
    Eth BOTD Thunder Maul
    Eth BOTD Collossus Blade
    Eth BOTD Glorious Axe
    Eth BOTD Great Poleaxe

    There are many combinations for duel wield weapons.

    eBotD tm stops at 6 fpa though, if I am not mistaken, and so does Glorious and War Pike.

    I am not sure it will make a great difference in pvm but it is still nice to hit the last ww bp. More attacks per second :wink2:

    Next monster to the chainsaw please. :cool:

    If he is to dual wield swords he can always use one botd and one grief.

    twohanders are worthless in pvm, just like in pvp.
    2 weapons = at least twice as much crushing blow, not to mention MORE physical damage.

    So that's why I annihilate everything in Hell with my spear barb, right? That's why I can do the whole thing without dying, without using a potion, without a mercenary... Right? :duh:

    what does that have to do with _anything_?

    dualwielders kill way faster in 8 player hell games since they do MORE damage and trigger crushing blow WAY MORE often. period.
