    act 2 merc breakpoint on weapons

    Hi,
    My merc uses a Reaper's toll socketed with shael. Will a 15ias jewel do the job ?

    IAS------ FPS
    0------ 7.5
    8 ------7
    22------ 6.5
    44 ------6
    75------ 5.5
    142 ------5


    Seeing Reaper has No Ias, technically Shael wont even do it. You will need some Ias from off weapon.

    Why? with 8ias I can reach the first bp.
    P.S. when I putted shael in socketed the weapon speed changed from fast to very fast, is this an indication?

    Well I would aim for 30 Ias minimum. Very easy to obtain.

    Cheap: 15 Ias in Reaper, 15 Ias In helm.

    Expensive: Try and get some 37%+ Ed/ 15 Ias and deck out the merc.

    If your only 2% off with shael may as well go up a breakpoint rather than down.


    Also Depending on The Helm.

    15 Ias Gaze, 15 Ias Reaper = 30 Ias = 22 Ias Bp

    15 Ias Andy, 15 Ias Reaper = 50 Ias = 44 Ias BP

    Problem is I use Fortitude as armor and going to use Dream as helm, so only weapon can have a socket.

    Act 2 Mercs get that jab attack anyway. I wouldn't worry so much about IAS.
