    Default Skybreaker

    Hey All,

    I just pulled a Skybreaker on a THF build. And I am curious about this sword. Most of the descriptions on this weapon just tell a story rather than seem to be an ability for the item. Is there something I am missing with this weapon? Is it even worth upgrading to get to Reaver's Fate. I mean it it doesn't seem like that even does anything.

    Are there hidden effects on this weapon that make it somewhat worthwhile?

    The upgrades are +1 enhancement and a red slot. Doesn't seem much worth it to me, especially with newer epic loot that's out there.

    the skybreaker helped me through the arcane lives on a melee, the Fatesinger made them weak vs the Skybreakers extra damage, the sword has an aoe burst that helps out too, add a ruby augment in for some extra damage. The commendations aren't too hard to come by these days (unlike the time we could only hope or a 0.001% dropchance in CitW)
    personally i would use a CitW raid weapon, since its min level is lower while doing the same or more damage when upgraded.
    you could also hold out 1 more level for a cheap tier 2 Thunderforged weapon.

    I am aware of the Hunter's Slayer.

    But considering that I just pulled a Skybreaker I was wondering what it's hidden effects are and if it is worthwhile.

    So is does the Reaver's Resolve, Reaver's Quest, and Reavers Fate offer nothing to the sword other than just an interesting story?

    I am hunting for a Cleaver from CitW, but haven't pulled one yet.

    I've used both and prefer the Hunter Slayer, but like the other fella said, I would probably go with a CitW weapon.

    I have the Hewer too, but haven't done any of the upgrades, yet.

    I haven't run FOT, but I've never seen or heard anyone speaking of extra effects associated with the extra text on the sword. Pretty sure it's just adding "fun" flavour to the weapon.

    The loot designer was drunk and put the description text into the effects table. That's all.

    I added a Good Ruby to it and use it as my Harry beater, I also use it against the Stormreaver in FoT since it bypasses his DR.
