    If you were stupid like me and maxed Vengeance, and are obnoxiously rich as well, I'd suggest socketing it with Vex, as you'll REALLY need that mana leech. 9% mana leech with my Nord's and I still have trouble leeching enough mana. I could probably get more with some gloves and that Orphan's Call belt, but then I'd be giving up 67% MF. (I made an MF Avenger and I'm starting to regret it --; )


    Although I suppose you could socket it with Shael if you're having problems hitting a breakpoint or something.

    Here is the attack speed chart with a Devil Star (B'star has 50% IAS built in):

    IAS--------Frames per attack
    0 %--------------16
    5 %--------------15
    11 %-------------14
    22 %-------------13
    34 %-------------12
    50 %-------------11 (unsocketed B'star w/o any IAS gear)
    78 %-------------10
    120 %-------------9 (Shael'd + 20% IAS Gloves + Highlord's + Nosferatu's)
    215 %-------------8

    Speed is probably more important than a little more elemental damage, IMHO.

    i use gimmershred and sometimes bstar but i think i'm gonna transfer baranars to my zealot as gimmer do more damage and as i'm always in party there is always someone with fanaticism with me :]
    socket options for bstar shouldnt be used for ml..just use tals mask or gaze if you need leech..
    shael is the way to go..could as well be rainbow facet
