latent
# Dec 16 2009 at 11:55 PM Rating: Decent
just want to clear up the latent with auto-refresh...
first off, you will get the effect with 1mp. thats true. however, if you have 0mp when you swing the axe, you wont have the haste effect.(try it out with the 1handed regen latent.) mp drops to 0, for that tic of hp you will get 0. until you have atleast 1mp for the latent to consume.

this is true with the haste on this latent. so if the 1mp isnt present when you swing you will have to wait until it is for the latent to activate. what sucks is that the latent will drain the 1mp from auto-refresh whether you are ready to swing or not. so you only have that really small window of time for the haste to proc once you are at the 0/1mp.
that means war needs gear/buffs/ect

with the right gear though... Ares's Cuirass,(not sure on the mp/tic, but lets assume 1mp/tic) pld/smn sub, herc ring(although you'd need to be under 50%hp, and auto-refresh from sanction/IS buffs you'd have enough refresh 3mp/tick to keep this badboy going full time and taking advantage of the latent all the time. not just with a slim chance of activation... drk could use parage gorget in place of herc ring and aspir often...

honestly though after going through all that crap to make it work unless its for a drk zerk or a war/nin tank (marco in for utsu) i cant say its worth it for a war to use... not unless you can find a rdm to toss refresh on you 24/7 cuz brd songs are going to march/march instead XD
Sanction Refresh

Although Sanction refresh will give you +1mp refresh and the latent will take that 1mp to bring you to zero and continue in a cycle, you need the full 3mp to actually get latent effect.

Tested in merit with Ni and recast timers.

Wow is all i gotta say lol there is sooo much wrong info here.. you DO NOT get refresh from this weapon it drains 3mp/ 3 seconds to activate the latents. I would imagine yes you need mp to use and once at 0 it would not have latent.

Holy crap, this axe looks amazing. So I went to AH in Jeuno and checked it out...I was surprised to see it going for as low as 20k. I decided to test my luck and I bid 10k.


...I GOT THE AXE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am so happy about this ^_________________^ Now I can actually show something off lol! only lvl 30 war btw.

How exactly do you get this axe? Anyone willing to let me know?
Use with refresh sanction bonus?
# Nov 13 2006 at 10:47 PM Rating: Decent
If i get the refresh sanction bonus... then does the latent stay active until my sanction wears off? Anyone out there tried this?

I didn;t see anyone post this so i figured i would. Though it does drain 3MP/Tick, you dont actually need 3 MP. if you have as little as 1 MP and a means of refreshing it, the latent still works. I discovered this with a few BST friends who were messing around as /NIN with dual rune axes. HUGE regen and with 1 piece of Ogre gear they had MP. gaudy harness gives refrest 1MP/Tick, when MP reached 0, it would regen at 1 MP then drop to 0, latents stilla ctive.

Basically it takes whatever MP you have, the max being 3. So long as you have refresh, juice, or maybe auto-refresh, the latent stays ative even with less than 3 MP.

With my Walahra Turban I have 30 mp so I decided to use this G.axe because I got mp and the kick *** latent. But when I have it equiped no mp is being used up for the latent..... wtf?

Well if the Rune h2h gear is any indicator you have to be engaged to make it work, have you tried that?

as far as base damege goes i think this is a good choice for maat. yes i know that one axe (forgot its name) has higher damege but on odin that axe is over 2 mil while this is around 200k last i checked/

# Jan 19 2006 at 7:32 PM Rating: Decent
Osode makes this item work i guess, because then when you got the swap gear for WS it wont make you lose MP, but other then Osode its really not worth it + 9%haste on a GA ... yeah i get what you all think i'll do but 9 more hits outta 100?? Lower delay weapon ??? (I.E Bhju+1 489delay 90DMG O.o) is it really worth the effort... again i guess you could fight the power that is (DDing) and use this for tanking but if you wanna use this in my PT then it better be skill up =)

Or just be a DRK LOL ^^

Uh.... you sub DRG and put on wyvern earring for an additional 5% haste, which adds up to 14% haste from G.Axe and earring alone. That's about 1% slower than dual wield trait II, but when you tack on other haste gear with jump, high jump, and TP storage gear, you got mad TP build. I can get 100tp in just about 30 seconds, which is really sweet. Only complaints I'll be hearing from people are, "Blah blah blah no shadows, I feel naked, blah blah blah"

This still won't beat top of the line WAR/NIN, but its powerful enough to hold its ground.

While some people would pass this weapon up without looking back, there are those who are levelling warrior as their second, third, fourth, etc job. And they've put merits into MP.
HOOOOOT!!!!

Imagine the look on the faces of my pt when i roll up as a Blb/Smn/Brd with this on :). Now i need to lvl those up to 70 JUST for that reason...
Useful @70 for War
# Oct 03 2005 at 5:25 AM Rating: Decent
At 70, I found this to be the best choice in the entire AH for Great Axes for Warrior, sans Berserker's Axe. 88 damage is nice-it's no Berserker's axe, that's for sure, but it's on par or close to most scyths of the level (and Berserker's blows any scyth away until what, 73?)

put on my Drk sub soon as I hit 70 and got this, and it does indeed take 3 mp/tick-the increase in speed over my last GA (529 delay for 85 damage) was very noticable. I suppose a War/Drk would find use in this, though obviously weaponskills would lack compared to War/Thf.

I can only imagine what a RDM would say if you, the WAR...asked them...to refresh you. A job with no natural mp. Good luck with that. But say you got them to, got some MP equipment, and therefor had a pretty constant haste +9% and accuracy +5...and also had haste on...that's 24% haste, is it not, since haste is, I believe, 15%, and there's another 9% on top of that? That's pretty friggin fast for a Great Axe in the hands of a Warrior, which is going to hit hard and often.

Anyway...between 70 and 71, this is the best choice besides Berserker's that is on Auction house.

Not the best...but OK...and it has a cool factor of +10 for being GOLDEN...I got a FLOOD of '>>>>>> examines you' over and over again right after first putting that thing on-a golden Great Axe (when most war's are /Nin sheep these days in the first place and dont even lvl their GA) in contrast with a black Hauberk and red AF is going to grab attention. So it also has a 'bazaar being examined skill' of +10 as well:P hehe
