300th spear vs Thing of the deep

I think the 301st spear would be better than the 300th spear.

Anyone got any usage stats on these two items? I never see anyone running around using 300th spear and I see lots of people using Thing of the deep.

I gave my 300th spear to my Templar.

He now runs super fast. ^.^

Perhaps the 300th spear wouldn't be so horrible if they didn't make 300 of them. =( I wonder what kind of stats the first 299 of them had.

Now that was funny.

Honestly if they made this spear roll better damage I'd try it out. But like 800 dps??

Number one barb on diabloprogress Alkaizer uses 2 the 300th spears. I imported his profile into D3up.

He's number one Paragon 100 and, if I'm not mistaken, most of his paragon levelling was with double tornado spec before the MPs patch. Btw, his other 300th is Legacy so no WT/AS bonuses.

I do...

There's probably way better weapons for throwing spec, but I saw this posted for 250k so I jumped all over it.

For WT build it actually is pretty good, specially when combined with an Echoing Fury.
Awesome HC barbarian either way!

Well ya otherwise he could not use two at the same time. my guess is he uses it to farm.

We want players to feel like entire new builds can open up if they get their hand on the right items. Glimmers of this idea are already in the game with The Three Hundredth Spear and Thing of the Deep.

300th spear is a good concept, only reason its not popular its because its under powered. But the idea of the item is really good as it serves to promote build diversity

the only reason why its not popular is because the only thing left in the game to do are exp and mf run.
WW barb are very efficient at both of these hence no one feels the need to use any other build.
