    About IAS (Increase Attack Speed)

    What's up?

    I currently have Ebotd cb which is 60% IAS. Also Highlords Amulet which adds another 20% IAS.

    If I add 40/15% IAS Jewel to my SS and to my Arreats will my attack speed be faster? I heard by people that it wont be. But some people say yes. My brother socketed Arreats and SS with 40/15% IAS Jewels and he was faster in attacking. But he uses Ebotd Zerker. Different from Sword?

    I'm having a bit of trouble finding a guide to it, but basically attack speed doesn't increase linearly - you have to achieve certain amounts, known as "breakpoints" before you attack one frame faster. As you go higher, you need more and more to achieve a breakpoint, and, of course, the number of breakpoints you'll need to achieve a certain frame attack varies from weapon to weapon.

    What's your character class, and what skill do you use when attacking ?
