    I'm making an old school Lance Barb and I wanted to use a war pike since it looks closer to that old school look than other weapons. (they look too short) I read that an Eth BOTD war pike would be the way to go. Would I be losing a lot if the war pike is not Eth?

    Damage difference will be large, however, there will be another problem. War Pike is too slow = You wont get the max attacks per second even with BOTD IAS. A Ghost Spear or Great Poleaxe is the way to go.

    Never make a botd out of a non eth weapon you will easily lose 300-400 max damage easy on a non eth war pike.

    GPA is another good option, I think polearms look cooler than spears on barbs.
