So while tier 80 weapons are the same DPS now, I'm just wondering if there's still ever a reason to use Chaotic Longswords? I almost forgot they existed and was wondering why it seems that no-one uses these now. And forgot to mention that this is for a hardcore ironman account.

 

I heard most monsters are weak to stab, but wasn't sure if that's one of the reasons.

 

And is there even a difference between Chaotic Claws and Chaotic Longswords other then looks? 

 

Just curious as I'm deciding on which melee chaotic I should get, and wasn't sure if Rapiers is still the way to go or is there a reason why I might want to choose the other melee weps? Besides Chaotic Spear... I do plan to get that in the future. :)

I would highly recommend getting the Claws, simply because they cost 200k tokens instead of 300k and they come with a 100% charge.

In reality though it really doesn't matter too much, because they are really just an in between weapon until you get drygores, which most likely will happen soon afterwards.

Oo did not know they came 100% charged. Huge bonus. And thought they were 100k per each claw for some reason x.x and that all of the chaotics were 200k tokens each. Gee I have not looked at prices in so many years... but hmm kind of weird that they would be 100k tokens cheaper. But meh I won't complain. :P

 

And thought I mentioned in post but I guess I didn't. I was asking because of my hardcore ironwoman account so unfortunately no drygores right now. Though I guess tier 85 is next closest thing.

 

Thanks for your help though!

Claws are 100k each, other chaotics are 200k for main and 100k for off.

I just got a mainhand rapier because I didn't want to bother with TDs, but if you can manage those then getting claws would be much cheaper.

No difference. Only thing is, if you ever plan on doing corp, get a spear. Though you'll need a zammy spear, as well.

 

And AFIK, spear also comes with 100% charges too

Problem is that 2h melee abilities are lackluster compared to dual wield.

The improvements for 2h melee abilties are in beta, so we should get them relatively soon. And as said before, chaotic spear is a must if u plan on solo corp in the future.

I would also recommend using the spear. It still has it's uses even when you have drygores(at corp) compared to the other chaotics.
