which beats all other options. Don't know about your axe, you can try leveling with it, but don't complain if you face some difficulties ahead.

Balefire proc is really common to craft and the rest of the stats aren't good towards the build (edit: the energy factor is useful too). Posting trade offers within the comment section of a build is not a recommended idea, especially if it's not that useful of an item.

With the damage dealt, they are equal. However, a good sword beats ZodXis RW because of Balefire range, additional stats on a sword (lots of FSD), double MO, additional LaK/LoSiM and, what is most important, the rarity (get shrines -> craft a sword).

You'll likely be killed faster than Rain of Fire will proc. It's good for a barb that use dual wield tree (you'll need another giant/bastard sword in 2nd hand).

Was the proc rate of Balefire nerfed to 33%? Or is it just me?
