Merciless Slicer vs. Merciless Cleaver

Postby Agarthalion » Mon Oct 13, 2008 10:29 pm

Ok, so what I'm wondering is why is the Slicer always used in the TPS threads, and the Cleaver or the Pummeler are left off for that matter.

The average weapon damage on the Slicer is 0.5 dmg higher than on the Cleaver and the Pummeler. Does that account for why the Slicer is said to be better for tankadins? Even though the Cleaver/Pummeler have higher top end damage?

Merciless Gladiator's Slicer 254 avg wpdmg
Merciless Gladiator's Cleaver 253.5 avg wpdmg
Merciless Gladiator's Pummeler 253.5 avg wpdmg

If this is the reason behind it, and since I think that the Slicer looks like a CoT rare throwback, I'm happy I picked up the Cleaver, if its for something more than that that I've missed, I'd like to know just for piece of mind.

The Slicer is chosen because it's a sword. The end.

The sword because it is slightly more dps=> slightly more TPS. We don't care about weapon damage we care about dps.

I took the Pummeler. Sticking it into the threat spreadsheets and accounting for Dwarf racial bonus it came out slightly ahead of the Slicer, plus I just prefer maces. Shame it's so ugly.

slicer: 203 - 305 Damage
cleaver: 177 - 330 Damage
pummeler: 177 - 330 Damage

I'm picking up slicer because

1. Even though I'm a dwarf the mace looks retarded
2. Axe and Maces are too short and I don't need a short wep as a dwarf >.>
3. Slicer looks the best out of 3 and its pretty huge

You would actually be better off picking up the Quickblade instead of the Slicer.

Same DPS (which is what HotR is based off) faster speed for quicker SoV stacks.

They changed HotR to be 4x weapon DPS

If you want you can get the honor refunded and buy the Quickblade.

Correct me but isn't the Quickblade an offhand weapon?

Since when can we carry offhand weapons in mainhand slots?

Yay! I just checked that myself. Although.. now that I read reports that s2 mace + spell power is about just as good, I kind of wish I'd used the honor on the s2 shield instead:P oh well, the sword is still pretty.
