Bul-Kathos Weapon Set Is Bad, Right?

I've seen some decent WW Barbs that use this set and say it's great. Can some top barbs chime in a confirm that high rolled rare 1hander axes/maces are the better way to go. Perhaps the proc from the set off sets the dps/stat loss? I doubt it, but I want to make sure that I'm not missing out.

Perhaps they're better for farming low mp since they will help with fury regeneration between the 3 fury per hit and the lower dps?

Solemn Vow is the problem. Because it only rolls one affix you can't get life steal and crit damage on it which is what you should be looking for in an offhand

+1

but my biggest problem with it is that is a mighty weapon, I have the set, but I only use the offhand once as it has nice cd / str / bonus dmg to elite, but using the mainhand (even I use a 100% cd gem) is going to cuz lots of dps because it's a mighty weapon, and I lose 10% cc from weapon mastery

Good intel guys. Thanks for the feedback. It would be awesome if blizz came out with an axe/mace DW set.

I like it, but I don't use both at the same time as solemn vow isn't that practical unless you use a ls belt + bloodthrist but you'll lose out on a potential 100% crit from a dual crit OH. About the proc.. last time I checked it was doing roughly 4 times the damage of my normal ww on crits... You could say its a whirlwind on crack.

But warrior blood with high crit damage and a socket is nothing to snuff about if you're able to get the ias from other pieces of equip. I alternate between my OH axe swap to MH to test, 10% crit is around 18k paper dps, its nice but I use crushing advance atm and I get around 55% crit in game with warrior blood as mainhand. We could argue but I was never a big fan of axe or hammers in main hand, just personal preference I guess.

I do have solemn Vow with 800loh and 65% crit .. 1050 dps also and 180str !

Loh is rather crap once you reach 100k dps, we meant vow cannot have chd, soc and ls, you have to choose but all 3 are rather important stats. I got lucky with my axe, paid 65 mil for it.

I use a Solum Vow main hand. Only time I have to turn on bloodthirst is for high MP Ubers otherwise I'm fine just farming with 900loh total and 2.9 LS on belt.

Note wearing farming gear.
