A good 5% crit Pox with 150 int will cost double or triple your knife.

Go for witching hour next.

I don't know WHY people are spending 100+ mils on manajuma's still, when butchers are plain better because of black dmg stacking with our boots + tals ammy dmg.

I got a 975 socketed butchers with int for 30mil and it does more dmg than anything remotely close via manajumas.

i would guess mainly for the extra int and bonus int with chicken.

but i would go with buchers+totd as well.

I can't find anything like yours on the AH for anything close to 30m...

I'm currently starting to save up for a new weapon with a socket. Seems so far away. Haha.

it's probably worth around 50mil, if you ignore anything with a BIN price and just watch bids, you will save millions, especially if it happens to end late at night.

there is a 970dps 129int one on AH right now @ 25mil with less than a day left. Watch that one, I bet it sells between 30-50m... may seem like a lot, but it sure beats spending 100+ on a manajumas. The black dmg is such a bonus when you have +12% dmg between boots and tals ammy.

Ah, if only I had the gold on me right now I'd definitely try to snag that up.

butcher's sickle comes with LS. You want your rare rolls to be socket+int.

I completely forgot about butcher's. I definitely agree mana's are way overpriced. I really don't care for the set bonus on mana's and would rather get a serpent or string of skulls instead for higher MP.

I have to admit I keep forgetting about Butcher's but I am happy with my Manajuma purchase. 80mil even.

I like higher LS, better CD and CK has some black damage.

Manajuma's can roll way higher Crit Damage, too.

+180 INT
+90% crit damage
+socket

vs.

+120 INT
+50% crit damge
+socket

I like the Butcher Sickle, and when I was getting my weapon, if I could have found one for less than 50M I would have gone that route. However, neither a Manajuma's nor Sickle were anywhere near my price range, so I got my weapon way, way, way cheaper.

That is going to be my next upgrade, though, is a life-steal weapon. This way I can start replacing some of my LoH gear with better pure-dps gear. But no way am I going without any sort of life regen. Too important to loose.

I would say part of it is due to the fact that Sickle is capped at 55% base crit and 2.7% LS. Although having the black dmg is nice, the +170-200 int, 66-100 base crit, 2.8-3 LS tends to outweigh the black damage factor. That's an extra 45% crit dmg potential, .3% LS and guarenteed high int. If I were to switch over to your sickle (a pretty well rolled one), it would be a 6k dps drop.

But if you do not have the 100 mil to spend on a knife, spending 30 mil on a good rolled sickle is definitely close behind it along with a decent rolled EF that can get 1200 dps, LS, 160 int, and high base crit for a low cost.

1st of all congrats on the nice gear.

I just started playing WD about a week ago. So far its my 2nd favorite class.

Have you ever tested out a 2H build with a Life Steal Skorn versus your Manajuma's Carving Knife? If so, how does the game play style differ?

If no… anyone else have any insight to this?

I plan on picking up a Manajuma's Carving Knife sometime in the future… looking at some of the price tags… its going to be awhile hah.
