I'm sick of the weapon tier shit, It's gotta stop.
Here's my test- 100 spikes against golems...Here's the results, best performances in red.
High Hit: 4022
Low Hit: 3134
Average Hit (Not including misses): 3534.93
High Hit: 4059
Low Hit: 3173
Average Hit (Not including misses): 3688.18
I was going to test it in pvp, but I don't think it's necessary...it's pretty commonly accepted that elemental damage does more in pvp than on mobs. Seeing how Cleaver has 10 more poison, it's definitely going to do better.
Special Note: Thx to Jojibber for lending the Shard 8!! Thx to Tristas for help too.
More Tests to come!
