Not to mention it has +25 dex. Unless you are rolling with a shaman 24.7 most SK's don't have max dexterity even with focus buff

Easiest way to look at it is if you want to do grouping crawling then I'd personally go with a tunare sword but it doesn't mean the axe is any less superior...doubling for 300s+ was fun and the faster you kill stuff means you take less damage overall
The Vulak ratio is significantly worse and the proc does half the DD damage of the swords root (which lands even for a tick on a lot of stuff).

There are a lot of reasons why people should prefer the axe. Ratio wise though it’s way closer to the Meljeldin than the Flamberge.

Even with BiS fear kiting stuff is extremely fast, mana efficient, and results in less damage taken. I understand if you donít have the right zone/mobs for that and have to stand toe-to-toe but both rangers and SKís have garage HP recovery systems, ie no jasper powered heal toy.

Outside levels 1-45 with a Fungi or stunt videos at 60 there is a huge range of levels and xp where as annoying as it is, you are better attacking a slowly fleeing mob than taking hits. If you can avoid it that is.

As for who has a Tunare sword at level 46 and canít fear kite? Who cares? The real play is a Dawncall spear and destroying Karnors. If you have a Tunare sword you probably have one of these too. Grats on having quite a fun alt.
You know what, fear kite is more exciting than simply toetotoeing something you know you can beat by attrition.

When I want to turn on autoattack and drool I play a warrior.

Soloing for hundreds of hours off low blues, the fun is getting to the end. Fear kiting is an efficient way to get it done and still is one hell of a trick at 60.

Wait Vulak sword gets a damage bonus since the ratio is slower? Wow. You guys are convincing me to maybe save more for Vulak Axe. I'm so confused on what to get.

it gets a higher bonus, but tuna sword will outdps it, if you can get one you can get both, so who cares in the end.
