Wondering which weapon would be best? Fairly new to the game myself, like to be knowledgeable though. Thanks =)
Does not matter one bit, except for if you are playing an Embermage where you use either the Staff passive (Requires staff then) or the Wand passive (Requires Wand then) but they are certainly not worth it, and going for the best weapon is much better, depending on what class you play tho, you would like to either dual-wield or use 1-handed + shield.
For the Warlock 1-handed weapon + shield is the best setup, best weapon until you reach Darkness Falls will probably be Hammer of Retribution (TM Vendor sells it). And when you start doing T1 you will want to immediately get yourself a Smouldering Brimstone Mace.
