View Full Version : Bladeforged Pue Paladin THF weapon doubt

05-16-2019, 10:23 AM
I know that's not the best dps build, but currently I have a Bladeforged pure Pal at cap and I'm considering doing a Sentient weapon for him. I've read that Riftmaker is best than Ravenloft Greatsword (or TF) but I'm on Divine Crusader so don't get the full advantage of axes. So, what could be the best non-raid (so no LGS) weapon por this build with the sentience option: Ravenloft Greatsword, Riftmaker, Ravenloft Falchion? I'm a bit lost regarding if I have to forgive entirely greatsword for a better option,so I'm open to ideas : )

Thanks in advance!

Looking at raw damage numbers only (no procs) and assuming Improved Crit, Holy Sword, Overwhelming Critical and Celestial Champion, it's quite close between the RL 2-handers. The greatsword is slightly ahead of the falchion and greataxe but I suspect you will see more kills with a falchion, especially with Crusader's Zeal of the Righteous running due to the high number of crits and doublestrikes. The Riftmaker, sadly is about 25% behind, but you will see bigger numbers on a crit, just less often.

This is all based on raw weapon damage only, no procs.

I am not a number cruncher, but what about the Tail of the Scorpion from this Toxic Treatment?

Gaxe only if you're a dwarf or on LD. Gsword benefits on a bladeforged pally are +5 to attack and +4 to damage only. You may want the falchion:Tail of the Scorpion that is raw stronger.

Thank you all for the answers!

I will buy SOON(TM) the Rage pack to try that Falchion before doing any Sentient weapon, but you clear a lot of my doubts!
