"Axes are the preferred weapon of choice for executioners. Armed in training for high damage and critical power, they are to be feared when facing a Champion alone and unsupported. Axes have the highest natural damage output when trained right and can be a fearsome weapon tree to invest in to." Quoted from the main page.
??? Axes have the highest natural damage output you say?!?! "When trained right!?"?!?! After years, people still have not trained it right.. why?
"Armed in training for high damage and critical power, they are to be feared when facing a Champion alone and unsupported." Run up to a single unsupported katar raider, hop *MISS* hop *MISS* hop *MISS* hop *MISS* hop *MISS*
Or build accuracy, hop miss, hop hit, hop hit, hop miss, hop miss, hop miss. Low damage.
Run up to a single unsupported sword champ... Magic damage 11k, Magic damage 11k
Basically everything an Axe was meant to do, a sword can do better. Axe's took too hard of a nerf, the class has been dead for so long. How can anyone train it right? All based on probability and chance, to be able to 3 shot other players or be killed seconds later.. It's like trying to refine an item 33% success chance and hoping to get it a success 3x's in a row...
Swords have a higher damage output than Axe.
