Quote from Huminator
1 decent mighty weapon is still less than 10m gold and for 40 mill, you can get a decent fury. There you got it. A better weapon setup than any skorn. You dont need 2x 1b one handers for DW to work. It can be done with less than 50m. And with 50m worth of one handers you can reach an xp per hour no skorn ww'er can compete with.
Once again, that depends on the rest of your gear. I have no doubt that your 1200 euro barbarian fast farmer than my 100€ barbarian with Skorn. But if you sell your two 1h, and buy a skorn worth that much, and I sell my skorn, and buy two 1h worth that much, you will farm much faster than me anyways. More important: I'll farm slower than I used to do, with my own gear, just because my skorn (1350dps, 190 CHD, 311 str) is worth just 10 millions, and with 10 millions, I can't buy two 1handers that come close. Your 50 million combo of mighty weapon+resonating fury cost FIVE times as much. I can do 50 million XP/hour with my set up and gear, and I can't do as much with two 1handers.
DW WWnado barbarian is the flavor of the month. Hence it's the most expensive, by simple offer and demand. If echoing fury and 1h mighty weapons weren't so overpriced, I'd swap to DW, no doubt. But right now, Skorn is a much cheaper alternative, and get the job done for 99% of the player base (those who aren't top geared)
Top DW players do around 85 million XP hour. Top Skorn players do 80 million. That's a 6% difference in efficiency. A pair of top 1handers cost more than twice the cost of a top skorn. If paying so much for a 6% efficiency is worth it or not, depends basically on how rich you are. Just like having a Rolex. A regular watch gets 99% of the job done, and cost 10.000 € less. If you are rich, you buy the rolex just because you couldn't care less for those 10.000€, but if you aren't, my advice is buy a Casio watch and save those 10.000€
