your also forgetting that hefty +20 acc and "occasionally does 2.5x damage" hidden effect, as well as the notion that it's DPS beats out such weapons as ridill, algol, Juggernaut etc...
Thanks for making me spit out my morning coffee. XD funniest thing I've heard in awhile.
If you think the lolclaustrum
beats out anything for melee your very very very very very very very very wrong. And you might want to go over to BG and do a bit of research into how much refresh it gives you, because it could be a pitiful amount.
The Ridill attacks 2-3 times, and actually has a useful weaponskill you can use with it. Only people that can beat (or come close to) these guys when they're well geared are BB monks, and well geared relic thiefs.
Man-eater and Juggy, both have the power to punch through tough HNMs.
Destroyers, when unlocked make Monks one of the best melee around.
Algol? Why not compare it to the Subduer, which has the best DPS or Gswords other than the Relic.
Now lets compare the lolclaustrum to the actual useful relics.
Aegis, Has an ungodly proc rate and has a large amount of damage reduction.
Gjallarhorn makes it so bards only have to carry around one instrument, and makes their refresh give 2 more MP (which I though you guys would want if you wanted refresh)
Mandau has the best DPS of any single hitting weapon in the game. +20 attack is also another nice benefit along with the poison
Bravura would be nice if warriors used Great Axes anymore.
Basically if your seeing what I'm trying to get at here is that the Claustrum is a waste of money. Considering there are better cheaper options.
