Keeping axe cappedFollow

Hey all.

Just picking up a pair of axes for the upcoming update. I'm more of a GA user, but I like to keep axe and GA capped at all times. I'm not willing to shell out for a Juggy, but that still leaves three axes, two of which I'll have to get my hands on.

Woodville's Axe: dmg 50, delay 288, dps 10.42, str +4, spell int -5%
Maneater (stats for under 100tp/ws): dmg 49, delay 276, dps 10.65, acc +5, att +18
Iron Ram Pick: dmg 47, delay 268, dps 10.52, att +10, Resist Curse

Since none of these have "main hand only" buffs, we would want the highest damage in the main hand. So, really, there are three combinations here:


Would someone please be so kind as to rank these?

Thanks in advance.

Well I've got the rare urge to post, and no one else has got to this one yet. I guess I'll give it a go then.

First off don't worry about not getting a Juggy it's really not worth it.

In the rare occasions where I dual wield on War I use Man/Ram personally.
As far as the combos you listed I'd rank them as:

1. Man/Ram
2. Wood/Man
3. Wood/Ram

With a very good damage/delay ratio and the extra att and acc Manny is really the best axe that War can use for most situations, and any axe build for War should probably have one in it.(some of the new Magian axes might be good though. I haven't looked too close.)

Woody and Iron Ram are a bit closer, but Iron Ram has a slightly better damage/delay ratio and 10 att > 4 str in most situations.

As far as axe/axe goes, you really can't go wrong with Maneater and offhanding Iron Ram, excluding (probably) the higher end OAT Magian Axe. I'll go ahead and say Juggernaut isn't a bad axe, but the price its usually sold for is ridiculously above what it is actually worth. So you really shouldn't feel obligated to even give it a second thought.
