Rogue Offhand and gear question
 
First, been curious as to why people prefer EoN over Winters Fury for rogue offhand, if i'm not mistaken they are the same ration (WF might even be a tiny tiny bit more? EoN .56, WF .565). I understand EoN looks much cooler, but WF way cheaper and the raw hp is nice.



Second, Which of these would be a better upgrade from Crystal Chitin Gauntlets

Thanks in advance

Besides fashion, there's really no reason to use EoTN over any better ratio weapon in Velious.

It's perhaps one of the most overpriced items in the game when you measure its performance vs cost.

I thought so, seeing the price and all the rogues who have one I was trying to see what I was missing. Definitely looks cool for sure

I traded my edge for a fungi when they were both 100k. Still happy about that deal. Seb dirk is same damage as edge and cheaper. Get one of those instead.

I actually have a seb dirk, but it is .55, figured upgrading to winters fury would be a decent upgrade since it is .565 plus has some hp on it.

Thanks for the advice everyone. I went with the Winters Fury.

Next question, is ratio the only thing I should look for in an offhand?

Just discovered I can afford an exquisite Valium warsword which is a ratio upgrade but has no stats. Thanks in advanced

Offhand = Ratio and stats > all.

IMHO, offhand ratio min-maxing can cost you a fortune for very little benefit. a 5-10% better ratio for a weapon that swings a fraction of the time. With rogues and backstab damage it's even less of your overall output.

I'm not advocating for an apathetic slippery slope. There are just probably better things to buy unless all your slots are shiny from the best that EC has to offer.

Honestly if it were me, I would choose a Skyfury Scimitar over the winter's Fury, especially at level 56. The +7svm and +7svc in the offhand seems better than +6 Str and 25hp. Same ratio and the Scimitar arguably has a better look (at least it's not the rusty sword graphic Winter's fury has) for the same price.

Ive always maintained that winters fury is a terrible item with absolutely zero redeeming qualities.
