Lightbulb Argent Protector vs. Reaver, 50 Paladin

Need some input here:

Weapon of Interest #1: Argent Protector (42/49, AC:10 + stats)
Weapon of Interest #2: Reaver (40/40 + resists)
Budget: 10k - 12kpp

Class/Level: Paladin, 50

Which is in my best interest to buy, or should I choose neither and focus on something else?

Thanks in advance!

The AP’s ratio is on par with a Massive Velium Axe or just a shade worse then the Exquisite line. It has decent stats and can kill undead but the only droppable weapon better at killing the living (than the Reaver) is the Narandi’s Lance which has a required level of 55.

I went from a Iceflame to the Reaver at level 45 and it was basically self-PL. I’m sure I was riding high on placebo drugs but whatever [You must be logged in to view images. Log in or Register.].

IMHO: Get a reaver and something cheap for undead encounters.

Yea. Better ratio, slower, and the proc scales. I believe in the mid 40's it's like 65dd. A nice cheap 2h.

Iíd totally get that sword when possible and even team with a Clay Guardian (400píish). I enjoy mine but it canít be compared to a 1/1 ratio 2h. Not with kill speed at least. You certainly canít joust with it.

What are you going for here?? If you want to try to up DPS, Reaver for dmg/dly + resists. It would be a good raid weapon when not MA or secondary tank. Still SK/Pally are both hybrid tanks: we end up just getting hit more than hitting out target. For that you want a good stat 1H and shield for AC + Stats

Anyone know what else besides undead (and willowisps) is Reaver unable to hit due to being non-magic?

Most undead, goos in Wakening Lands. A few dragons (trak?). It's pretty much solid for 99% of Velious, most of classic. Kunark it's hit or miss *pun*. [You must be logged in to view images. Log in or Register.]

Nardani's are going for 15k now.

As a Paladin, that is 100% your best bet.
