I'm currently trying to make a good custom axe, and I cannot decide which would be best. My previous custom axe is a 6 - 26 damage chaos axe, with a Sundering axe haft (8% chance), and a grip of warding +6, and is fairly decent I think. The current one I'm building is a 6 - 28 chaos axe, and I'm having trouble picking upgrade items. The grip is pretty much a no brainer for me, it's a grip of defense +4, but the haft I'm having trouble deciding on. The two hafts I have in mind are an Ebon haft and a Vampiric haft. (5 life steal per hit, if it's a set value of 5 and not just between 1 - 5, but even if it was variable it's still pretty nice.) Now the Ebon haft is good for warriors I hear, but not against casters, so I guess I would switch to my previous axe to deal with casters. But the idea of a healt giving axe is pretty appealing, even if it does have -1 regeneration. Which would be better for a Warrior/Mesmer?

let me tell you, +5 Life Steal is extremely rare.
I have only seen +3 so far, and thought it is MAX... but +5 ... combined with Cyclone Axe, it surely rocks!!!

+3 vampiric is the best you can get for an axe (and sword). +5 vampiric are for bows and hammers only.
My weapons are either a zealous of defense, or a sundering of defense.

There is a strategic importance of the 5AL tho, which overshadows the life ;)
yes for vampiric axes

Ah thanks for the replies, guys, looks like I was mislead by the info on this site, which said Axes had a possible +5 vampiric bonus, oh well. Hmm, perhaps I'll try the vampiric out, and if it doesn't seem to be good, I'll just buy another Chaos axe and try the Ebon haft.
