So I was offering you the chance to elaborate your position beyond "Gele axe build over edl sword build always." before offering the counter argument, however you have chosen not to do so so here goes on why EDL Sword is superior.
In this post I'm going to be calculating the damages with 4 damage factors: Mainhand, Offhand, Aura damage bonus and Food (Exquisite Barabrith in this example):
The Gele Axe is 9% slower than the EDL Sword -
So let's quantify the speed difference: The Axe is 9% Slower than the sword, so 9% relative damage will be added
to the end value (Excl. DS)
Next, a divine strike
has a 5% proc chance and hits 3000, so every 22 seconds 1 divine strike hits = 136 Divine DPSEDL Sword
1100 Attack speed (Rounded from 1104)
5% Proc chanceDark Axe
1200 Attack Speed
180 ElementalCG OH
250 DivineAura Bonus
200 DivineFood Bonus
144 Pierce So accounting for the speed difference -
391 Physical and 490 Divine damage, with an additional 136 Divine damage per second (DS).
Dark Gele Axe:
374 Physical and 450 Divine damage, with an additional 150 Fire damage per second.
The attack speed bonus from the EDL sword heavily offsets any physical/Elemental bonus from the axe.KEEP IN MIND ANY GEAR COMPARISON NEEDS TO ACCOUNT FOR THE 9% BONUS IN ATTACK SPEED THE SWORD HAS
-For example a Runic Necklace using a sword vs an axe is 261 heat damage.
