View Full Version : ax or sword?

I'm wondering which is better to use? It seems like the ax's have a lower dps but is that all that bad of a thing? Are ax's better for bosses or what? Any input would be great.

what lvl are you? that is a very important point
if you are lvl, say, 35 and up, use an axe
you can get a pretty good pink axe in lost exped
swords are pretty much useless starting in swamps becuz the enemies start to have more armor and swords start becumin useless
dps is dmg per second, so of course, a faster sword wuld be faster
but agenst high armor mobs...well, an example
would you rather face an enemy and do 5 damage every hit, and hit the enemy 5 times a second?
or would you rather do 25 damage every hit, and hit the enemy 2 times?
now, if you are still playin forest haven-fathom crypt, use the sword
there are surprisingly still zombies in fathom crypts and they have little to no armor at all =)
