Do I have to go Echoing Fury?

EF are noobs and Epeens.. I don't see how this weapon is viable for high MP and group plays... Your edps would be so low because of the fear factor...

LOL.

what a funny guy.

I play MP10, generally with a CM wizard and a HOTA barb. The barb and I use EF, and have no issues with fear at all. I use cyclone strike to yank them within range of the wizard, and things die extremely quickly.

I just went from an echoing fury with LS that put me at 130k DPS (11% fear), to one without that put me at 160k DPS (19% fear). Because of the reduced health inflo from my SW/Cyclones, I find I am a little more fragile... but things die a lot faster.

I don't mind the fear. I am not taking damage from things that run from me. I just have to be patient when molten things flee, and wait for them to come back. My own foot speed is good enough that I can otherwise manage the fear effect pretty well, so I don't get the complaints about it.

Really not a fan of the fear, the paper dps increase isn't much consolation for seeing mobs scatter and making my EP build pointless. Can't really find room for cyclone strike either. Had to hand over the socketed EF that dropped the other night to my barb who got a much better dps boost anyhow.

If you don't wanna use EF just don't use it ! "Do or do not, there is no try"

EF would be the best weapon in the game if it weren't for the fear. It could be Best in Slot for PvP though.

I love that ApS boost, can't stand the fear. It's a trade off you have to live with. Try it out and see if you like it. I tried it out, loved it initially, hated it after a few weeks of use.

EF is garbage, definitely not the most amazing weapon by a wide margin. The naturally high base damage, increased APS, 150+ dex, CD% & socket are all negated by fear, because having 1 target run 10yds away for 3 seconds is virtually apocalyptic

I've owned every kind of EF in the game, LS, CD, with a socket u name it...it's alright I don't like it for group play on the high MP's...I especially will not play with a WW barb on MP10 who uses an EF (good God that fear proc chance with WW is craaazy).

I do not use one myself...however I currently have 2 amazing none socketed EF that would be absolutely amazing with one, so I've got them stashed away for when the option to socket becomes available (I guess EXP pack so maybe a long way off but it's good to plan ahead)...at that point they would be too good not to use over rares:)

Your EF would give me a 40K boost in unbuffed dps. It's one of the best ones I've seen around. Enjoy it.
