Can someone tell me why buying the normal holographic wings off the TP for 27 gold is less costly than grinding 100,000 Zhaitaffy candy to get the wing which is equivalent to 180 gold since one taffy is 18 copper?

Well I believed 20/25/0/10/15 was the highest DPS until 2 days ago and I also believed in the importance of Fast Hands. But then I did some quick math and found 25/25/0/10/10 offering more DPS. The Stick and Move pushes up the Base damage multiplying side just a bit more than the +5% critical damage due to the fact that Crit Damage has to be modified by Crit Chance while Base Damage can take in the extra Stick and Move % in its pure form.

Expected damage = Base damage * ((0.50 + (Critical Damage / 100)) * (Critical Chance / 100) + 1)

If someone else can chime in and verify or prove it wrong I would really like to know. I still would prefer 20/25/0/10/15 at the end despite if it does 5-6% less overall DPS than 25/25/0/10/10 due to the utility of switching weapons faster and it's debatable as how often you have Endurance up 100% vs not.

If we're talking about raw dps from a greatsword... what about 25/25/0/10/10 ?

I tried it in fracts and some dungeons, and while this does awesome damage , the survivability on it wasn't great, drop pretty quick without some full suppert chars beside you.
I mean it worked great in fracts 18-20 with guild members etc, but with pugs it might not always work.
It is a great build to go by if you know you can count on whoever's with you.
Other than that I love your builds man.

It will be forever a problem with Axe vs Greatsword. Although HB is nice, the greatsword mobility and 3rd dodge is simply the core reason why we use them, despite the attractive damage from axes. At the end no matter what you use, you really have to be the master of your weapon. I'm sure with practice and experience, a player can find a way to make axes work well for them.

Off topic: two (three) words "LET'S ROCK!!!!"

On topic: thanks for the input guys, I'll stick to axe and mace, much more my style.

Good for you! I have no issues with any Warriors using Axe vs Greatsword. Especially in Fractals 40+ it's 100x more important that you good at playing the game rather than weapon type or build. Axe is more fun and doesn't rely on hundred blades to do damage. But I'm more of a sword type of person ;p
