    299 ED eth ribcracker...

    Just nabbed a 299% ED ethereal ribcracker today... by my figuring, the upgrade would put this beauty at 495-685 dmg (590 avg). I've never played a WW druid though, so my questions are how well would it work with a zod in the socket instead of the usual shael, what kind of damage could I expect at a minimum with fury, and what would this thing be worth to any of you for your druids? ;)

    You bid nothing.

    This Is Not A Trade Forum.

    Any more bids and I'll report them.


    However, that is a very nice find/buy kryo. It is definitely meant to be Zodded, not Shaeled, although if you like you can Shael it until it has 1 durability and then unsocket it and Zod it.

    With Zod it is a 9/5 Fury instead of the 8/5 it would be when Shaeled.

    :uhhuh:
    do you really think I would break the *sacred* rules of the forum?
    I assume you think I was serious.

    That was a self rightous post, sorry, but it offended me.
    I was answering his question, I don't see any harm in that.
    what is wrong with you?

    you remind me of someone who points out grammatical mistakes :|

    you see all those smiley's?
    normally that means a good mannered post.


    btw I am hurt.

    Perhaps a wink would have done better to get that point across.

    I apologize for taking your post the wrong way.

    I am sorry for the mixup.

    About the weapon:
    I would zod it as well.
    unless you were a blade fury assassin, then you could dish out the damage and not lose a single durability.
    although it is a two handed weapon, so higher damage penalty.

    Off the top of my head the elite ribcracker is slower, so a zod would make it a 9/6 fury.

    Hel Rune + TP Scroll + Socketed Item = Unsocketed Item

    Hel+tp scroll+ítem in the cube removes anything in the item and you end up with a free socket.

    The cracker is also slower so it would need a shael or jewel to be as fast as a normal one.

    Well thanks for the comments here. I'll have to go dig up a fpa calculator somewhere and figure out if it'll be 9/5 or 9/4 (but either way I'd think the huge damage will make up for the slight speed disadvantage). I'll probably hold on to it for a while in case I get so lucky to come across a zod ;)

    The last question in my original post was just trying to guage the value (thus the "What would it be worth..." instead of "What will you give?") of it since the trade value forums are so dead... I'm not looking for any real bids, but hey, if you want to that bad I won't stop you from pm'ing me ;)

    As for how I found it? I was just burning through some nm andy runs hoping for a soj, and lo and behold she left me this. Totally unexpected, but very welcome indeed :)
