Hello, after the big december update i'd like to roll a second main, which is going to be HG. (i main thief)
I'm keeping my thanksgiving boxes for now so i can instantly get an epic weapon.

Which weapon should i opt for now we can freely choose which one we get? I've heard attackspeed does great things for HG, why is that? Should i just go with MSL for the better drop table? Or is murpa worth it even now?

    Honestly, whichever one you like me. I think technically Murpagoth is a larger dps increase, but considering they're both a chance on hit, and have different timers, it's mostly doesn't matter.

    I've also considered just getting an Acreon instantly using my thief funds. Would it be a severe dps loss to get an Acreon over a chaotic weapon?

    I wouldn't waste my money on an Acreon, that money is better served getting an epic pet.

    If mesos don't matter to you, Acreon's would be better than an MSL/Murpagoth's in everything except chaos raids. But the thing is once you clear CPAP you won't need the wep anymore, so your best bet is to just upgrade a Murps for highest damage in that.

    I know I made a post with MSL vs Murp calculations awhile back, and the damage difference between the two came out to be like 4% if I remember correctly (Murps above MSL) . Didn't do calculations for rune cannon though.

    I suppose Acreon would be nice to have in DD and sky fortress but I'll stick to MSL for now, thank you for your help!
