First, here's a link the Wiki weapons table for reference.
http://www.exiledkingdoms.com/wiki/inde ... apon_Table
Second, depending on Class, Build, Playing Style and enemies being fought, what constitutes "best" is tricky to nail down.

And somehow you left out "Primal Icicle," which is the highest DPS Light weapons for a warrior.

Other than that, regurgitating the Wiki list is just that--- repeating a known list.

Rancor is the best for 2H Warriors but have to fight with greater demon to get it. Infernal Aegis is the best shield for 1h warriors. For Clerics with agi build ancient fang and str build the cleric sword.

The highest general dps may be rancor, but requires 2 weapon maintenance for fire resistant enemies.
Executioner's Axe or Bone Maul are great alternatives that go well single-handedly. No need for an additional slot, just equip and youre good to go.

Also, these two do better than the the dps on the char sheet, for a few reasons: No double damage reduction (enemies are bound to have some resistances) and how skills dont factor in elemental resistances (fire damage on rancor doesnt double on whirlwind, neither do you gain a % of that through fury or critical hits, which you pretttty much want later on). Rancor or PG without their elements are quite mediocre, if you look at it.

That being said, don't just read the wiki and assume the highest sheet dps is the best. Things vary by the situation more than you would assume (like how Ancient fang is the best cleric weapon, as weird as that may seem). Experiment, and find your own build!

There are no better weapons for Warriors in-game than DemonClaw and Pneumatic Mallet. If you've used them before, you'll understand. They are the two weapons I switch interchangeably. Undoubtedly the best for Warrior Class.

This thread is five years old and was started before the last batch of weapons was added to the game so if the current top tier weapons are left out, that's why. But let's discuss "there are no better weapons for Warriors..."

I dislike "best" arguments as they tend to be more subjective than objective, but let's clear up some things.

Both the Pneumatic Mallet and Demonclaw are end-game weapons. As such they are top tier and will serve 2H Warriors well. They clearly aren't going to help 1-H or Light weapon Warriors.

But, those two 2-H powerhouses aren't even objectively the best in every situation. For example, against end-game outsiders such as the Final Boss or Elemental Lord, Adamantine Greatsword will have a higher DPH and DPS. So it is "better" in the objective damage output measurement.

Additionally, elemental damage has a few quirks with how it applies to warrior skills.

For Cleave, the full elemental damage is applied to every enemy hit, which can tip the skills when elemental weakness is at play (shock vs ghosts etc) against large crowds of monsters.

However ---- and this a big however --- Fury, Whirlwind, Charge and Critical hits only increase the physical damage of a weapon, not the elemental add-on.

That makes calculating actual damage output a bit complicated. AND that's not even tossing Gulguth's Maul into the mix. It's the highest damage 2-H weapon with a stun chance. Given the elemental lord is highly resistent to shock, Pneumatic Mallet doesen't do much more damage and lacks the stun chance. How much damage output is worth a stun chance? Player preference.

So yeah, those two end-game weapons are rightfully top tier, but there are situations where other weapons might serve a 2-H warrior better.
