Larger damage bonus with worse ratio not enough to overcome the lower damage bonus plus better ratio.
At a guess.

Some kind of sweet spot with regards to ratio and damage bonus (like moss covered twig was great in era) /shrug

The Vulak Axe DPS sounds atrocious.

In terms of straight ratio the Palladius has just over a 4% better ratio (with damage bonus) than the Gaudralek. The procs wont show up on other damage peoples parses but it wouldn’t take many to match the output since sizeable and irresistible. 4% on 10,000 damage is 400.

The Petrified Heartwood Flamberge has just over a 4% better ratio than the Palladius and the proc does twice the damage. In this same theoretical parse where a knight does 10k assuming RNG gives both players an equal shake the Palladius would have to proc 5 times and the Root on the flamberge would have to not land at all.

Of course, different players and different gear, different buffs because some people are bad, different luck and shorter parses. Napkin math rarely works out in the real world but it’s a fair way to compare things which you cannot otherwise compare without an anecdotes and gut-feelings which are less accurate.

The thing about the Palladius proc is it's an unresistable life tap and self-healing is very good.

For anything with an attrition component it's money. Given a PC has a fraction of the health of a NPC, the EV from the self-heal is far larger than a DD.

Now if you're just DPSing something and taking 0 damage, then it's not optimal, but even then it's close enough that it doesn't actually matter.

Ideal character progression on p99 is working your way up from a rusty 2h axe, to a tarnished 2h axe, to a dwarven 2h axe.

Then you get real with the magic of a double-bladed bone axe which took some killing but also you fucking hate druids anyway so no big deal, work your way to a silvery 2h axe as goblin slaying is bulk fun. Off you go to Rathe Mtns and spend a long time to get your Axe of the Slayers (MVP of early EQ) and you proc up a storm pretty much invulnerable to melee, then you're primed for an executioner's axe. Froooaaaaak.

Hit the planes, get your Ashenbone Axe. Really rocking some dps now, then kunark comes out and you switch up to an easy to get Axe of Lost Souls. Get yourself keyed and some dragons gonna be despatched. You get that Ykeshan Broad Axe. You're the MVP of kunark 2h aggro generation.

Next minute kunark drops, you quickly off your boy dain for a Frostreaver. Step up in the world. You're whacking and slashing, everything is a tree and all you got is an axe. Then whammo, a KT axe drops and you have a good non aggro alternative! You die less and become a true bro warrior who can do it all.

You vpick up a 2h primal axe as it was 1dkp, realise it is ugly and destroy it. You don't have bagspace for that shit. Then in time, big daddy V finally gives it up. Palladius is yours.

You equip it, and realise you now are the axe god of norrath. Chop chop.

You auto attack with any of the top 5 weapons in either hand.

Alt tab back in as appropriate.

This is eq in 2024.
