Ali-Baba socket question...

I have a question about the Ali-Baba. Will dual socketing Shaels in them ( I have 2 ) improve the IAS enuff to make them a viable killing weapon for MF'ing? Or would ED/IAS jewels be a better choice? Thanks in advance for your comments.

Personally I would put some more MF jewels inside and just put it in the 2nd weapon switch slot and use it for the killing blow.

That's EXACTLY what I was planning on doing. Using them as a weapon switch. BUT they ARE SO SLOOOOOOOOOW. That's why I wanted to know if Shael's or ed/ias jewels were better. Without the IAS will they kill effectively in HELL? Thanks again.

That's the point of putting it in the secondary weapon slot. You don't actually kill mobs from full with it, just switch to dual Ali Baba's for the death blow. Regardless of how much you put into it, it will never do good damage or swing at a decent speed, so there's really no sense in wasting good IAS/ED jewels or Shaels in it.

Would upgrading them be a solution?
