i prefer a avedon +7 over my personal sword +7 and dont no why but i just like the combo on axes and they have the same rangeSeems like ppl cant read, He gave his options so i dont understand why u list weapons that are out of his range. Back on the post.....
Six months ago i made myself this same question, and i tested btw a lot of these weapons, I tested for a full month switching btw raptor +8 (mine), Avedon +7(mine), Murky spear+7/Impact+8 (mines), HB+7 (mine), II+8 (from a BP friend) and a giga +8 (from another friend). I tested everywere... arena, dummies and cz, and the results were at the end of the month (in my opinion)
Raptor+8 = II+8 > Giga +8 > HB+7 = Avedon +7 > Murky/impact +7/+8
So i gave back the II and the Giga since they werent mine, sold the HB to buy another RoC, and kept the Raptor +8 as main weapon, the Avedon +7 as a back up, and the murky/Impact for Bosses like Deva.
Why i picked the raptor: got the biggest AP, big damage in most of the characters (not everyone is running with spear def always on), RANGE (something most of the ppl seems to forget), had the Avedon +7 in case i find someone with spear def, and II+8 and Giga+8 werent mine hehehe :P Anyway, Giga +8 is out of the price range of the others, and 300 HP/MP more or less are not that important for a warrior lvl 80 with 6k+ Hp base so forget that one.
PS: with the expansion i got my personal sword and its +6 so far. Next month ill go for +7 and if it goes ok we can say bye bye to the avedon as the back up weapon [/b]
