    Baranar's Star Question?

    I just got a Baranar's Star and I was wondering what I should socket into it. Here is what I plan on using:

    29% ED/8 Max/+4 replenish life
    Shael Rune

    The reason I ask is because I am not sure how much more IAS the Baranar's Star can take before it is inneffective.

    It depends on your Character Class, Build, Attack used and IAS from other sources...

    Code:
    Base 10
    IAS 	Normal Attack	Zeal without	Normal with	Zeal with 
    	without		Fanaticism 	Fanaticism	Fanaticism 
    	Fanaticism 
    
    30 	13 		7 		10 		5 
    35 	12 		6 		9 		5 
    40 	12 		6 		9 		5 
    50 	11	 	6 		9 		5 
    60 	11 		6 		9 		5 
    65 	11 		6 		8 		5 
    70 	11 		6 		8 		5 
    80 	10 		6 		8	 	5 
    90 	10 		5 		8 		4 
    100 	10 		5 		8 		4 
    110 	10 		5 		8 		4 
    120 	9 		5 		8 		4 
    
    B-Star starts with 50%IAs so you're at a 9/5 Zeal with Fanaticism. 11/6 Without.

    You need 40%more Ias to reach a 4 frame Zeal with Fanaticism or a 5 Frame Zeal without. Now how you get it is up to you. A Highlord's Ammy along with a Shael will get the job done... as would IAS gloves. With your gear (Which you haven't mentioned) you have to decide if you can get that 40%ias with our without the shael.

    Most cats I know have popped a hel rune in there. The dex reqs are pretty steep, if memory serves.

    44 dexterity is hardly a "steep" requirement. For its offensive power, baranar's star has some very light requirements.

    So you have 20%Ias from Laying of Hands... That tells me Shael is DEFINITELY the way to go.

    You should feel the improvement when you get that Zeal down to 4 frames.

    True, but i wouldn't pop a shael in that nice baranar's, there are plenty of other sources to get ias from.

    and a shael doesn't look that sexay in a baranar's... *methinks*
