The axe (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=31291) is readily available at the AH if unspectacular. Used to be way OP with +50str before they changed it to Stam instead.

What really are the best weapons varies from player to player depending on what options are available to them. Do you quest only? Hit instances? Have the time to grind reputation with the varies factions in game? Are you in a guild which does 10-man raids? 25-man raids?

Check out the item lists on wowhead (http://www.wowhead.com/) and look at where they come from, see which are available to you to plan your gear.

I would hold out on wasting gold and just do rep grind for either Legionfoe or if Horde Hellscream's Will. Other good 2H items are the rep reward polearms Hellforged Halberd from Honor Hold and Blackened Spear from Thrallmar respectively. My advice, get that Shatter Sun Offensive rep up once you ding 70 and get the Legionfoe.

It's good at 69 but bad at 70. Besides what was mentioned, there are three better 2h slam weapons at 70 that I can think of off the top. Plasma Rat's Hyper-Scythe, Crow Wing Reaper w/ 3x strength gems, Firemaul of Destruction and probably about 10 more. If you are running instances, you won't be able to help but get a better weapon very soon. I'm prot and have the last two of those sitting in the bank right now.

Here's a thottbot search of all the weapons that will be available to you pretty soon. Find Weapons - Thottbot: World of Warcraft (http://thottbot.com/?f=w&skill=Axe&skill=Mace&skill=Polearm&skill=Sword&name=&loc=Two-Hand&source=1&source=4&quality=3&minrl=&maxrl=&minl=112&maxl=130&minsc=&maxsc=&mind=&maxd=&mins=&maxs=&stat1=&c1=gt&v1=&stat2=&c2=gt&v2=&stat3=&c3=gt&v3=&e=)

The question is if the 35g or so that the axe fetches on the market is worth being more powerful at the present.
