Crom Faeyr is nice with the 25 strength ability (meaning more damage and better chance hit) and it kills some types of golems. however, it takes some nice items to make it

Flail has + elemntal damage + slow and can be upgraded.

Which would be better, and no, I won't be dual weilding.

Hmm... If you aren't dual-wielding, I'm not too sure... probably still Crom Fayer, but Flail of Ages (upgraded in ToB) might be a match for it, although elemetnal damage can be both good and bad. I'm not too sure which is better.

AFAIK, even thought it isn't listed in the crom fayer's abilities, it seems to do 5 extra lightning elemental damage, so thats as much elemental damage as the upgraded flail. The flail is good, but for a solo weapon the crom fayer is much better.

they are both good.
flail of agies kills, not because of only elemental dmg, but it also slows target. best weapon to kill tough opponent

crom faeyr is for the wack, enough said about its good

use both, you cannot be stopped

Well if you are going to wield only 1 weapon you might want to go with the flail. Really crom faeyr seems to be made for dual wielding so putting it in the hands of someone that has another weapon is ideal.

just break it down into their basic parts (SoA only)

crom: blunt, 2-8 dmg, +10 to hit (+3 and STR mod), +17 dmg, (+5 dmg electrical?)

ages: blunt, 1-6+1 dmg, +3 to hit, +3 various elemental dmg, slows enemy

in the hands of a fighter type who has lots of attacks, crom is the better. but for a cleric who doesnt have the luxury of multiple attacks, the flail might be more appropriate. the flail's slowing can also help compensate for a less than ideal AC.

If your planning on playing on into ToB keep both weapons. use crom faer for SoA and after upgrading the flail of ages in ToB use that.
