Whether you're out there gathering creature resources or maybe working on collections, what weapon do you use?

I've got a Wookie ent as an alt using a Blade of the Betrayer, but I'd like to get something better of the melee/polearm type. Maybe I'm missing something, but that "Overwhelming Shock" reminds me more of the Desert Storm slogan than something that's actually effective.

this has a list of the pole arms available. Pick and choose the one that you want for your play style. Most of the 'good' ones are looted from major NPCs or quest rewards. The most DPS is apparently 1050.

Check the forums/vendors for what's available, if nothing matches send me an in-game mail since we are on the same server and I will see what I have in my inventory.

Okay, but do you know the difference between "frigid strike" and "overwhelming shock"?

Sure, "Frigid Strike" is what I usually get from my wife each night. "Overwhelming Shock" is what I get on the nights she doesnt? :lol: :roll: :mrgreen:

I messed that up. Apparently, it's the "Freeze Spike" effect she's been using on you, not Frigid Strike (a WoW thing). Hmm, ask her what kind of dps she gets with that?

I'm not sure what the DPS was last night, but it had me rooted for a good 5 minutes, and afterwards even my flamethrower couldn't take away the cold debuff she had put on my action.
