Steel Cyclone and Metatron Torment were only really good at 300%, so not very useful for Zerg tactics (unless you build to 300% prior to fight), so Kings Justice with Mighty Strikes, and Raging Rush after it wears would be my suggestions. While I don't have experience with Fell Cleave, it seems to better for Abyssa and destroying vast amounts of monsters at once.
Agreed. While Fell Cleave is good for taking out multiple enemies at once, it lacks the damage output that some of the single target G.axe WS have. If you had access to Ukko's Fury I'd recommend that, otherwise King's Justice when Mighty Strikes is up and Raging Rush when it's down.
I don't know what gear you use for Fell Cleave, but my cleave damage is definitely on par with RR/KJ outside of Razed Ruins. ~1500ish Fell Cleaves are not uncommon even outside abyssea, and at ~100 TP, the AoE range is pretty tiny. Unless the mobs are right on top of each other, there's a solid chance of not hitting more than 1-2.
For the record, Fell cleave has the same str mod/fTP as Metatron's Tormen. That fTP beats pretty much everything but 300% TP SC, and 60% str mod is very solid if you gear for it. Edited, Jan 23rd 2011 2:29pm by Jinte
