    Best theoretical rare Jewel?

    Hey guys,
    I was looking at a crappy rare jewel i found and it got me thinking, whats the "best" rare jewel you can theoretically find?

    Obviously some kind of % Damage, +AR, +Res jewel would be sweet but what kind of awesome jewel could exist? And would these be worth it as you have to forgo certain popular jewel pre/suffix as they are magic only.

    UNABLE TO SPAWN AS RARE
    Code:
    [B]Ivory [/B]           +41-64 Defense
    [B]Vermilion[/B] 	 +11-15 To Maximum Damage
    [B]Ruby [/B]	         +31-40% Damage
    [B]Argent[/B] 	          +61-100 To Attack Rating
    [B]Turquoise[/B] 	 +16-20 Mana
    [B]Scintillating[/B]    +All Resistances +11-15 	
    [B]Fervor [/B]	           15% Increased Attack Speed
    [B]Carnage [/B]	 +11-15 Maximum Damage
    [B]Hope [/B]            +9-20 To Life
    [B]Glacier[/B] 	 +4-5 Minimum and +11-15 Maximum Cold Damage - 2 Second Duration
    Even with these limitations im sure there are some smexy combo's about. Feel free to theorize and also, If anyone has any sweet Rare jewels (socketed in something or not) post a readout in here as it would be interesting to see what you've dredged up.

    Shimmering
    Ambergris
    Sapphire
    of Freedom (of Truth works extremely well here too)
    ------
    40% Lightning Resist
    40% Cold Resist
    10% Fire Resist
    10% Poison Resist
    -15% Requirements

    Jacinth
    Shimmering
    of Daring
    of Virility
    ------
    +9 Strength
    +9 Dexterity
    10% Resist All
    15 Mana

    Realgar
    Crimson
    of Bliss
    of Virility
    ------
    30% Enhanced damage
    +18 Minimum Damage
    +9 Strength

    Every different socketing scenario has a different optimal rare jewel, and many socketing scenarios could use several identical ideal rare jewels. There are other mods that are good for various scenarios.

    Imagine a perfect crown of ages socketed with the first jewel and its complementary cold/fire equivalent.
    15% DR
    110% Resist cold
    80% Resist lightning
    80% Resist Fire
    50% Resist Poison
    -30% Requirements
    30% Faster hit recovery
    etc.

    I'm pretty sure all of the single-res jewel affixes are in the same affix group. So you can get Shimmering Ambergris, but not Shimmering Sapphire Ambergris.

    In my opinion the best jewel of that type would be shimmering ambergris jewel of freedom of truth.

    40% LR
    10%CR
    10% FR
    10%PR
    -15% reqs
    7%FHR

    Some prefixes:
    +30% cold/fire/light/poison resist
    +10% resist all
    +8 minimum damage
    +9 maximum damage
    +30% enhanced damage
    +50 attack rating and +40% enhanced damage against demon
    +50 attack rating and +50% enhanced damage against undead
    +15 to mana
    +3 mana after each kill
    12% damage taken goes to mana

    Some suffixes:
    +9 to strength
    +9 to dexterity
    +9 to energi
    replenish life +4
    +9 maximum damage
    +10 minimum damage
    +3-10 cold damage
    +25-50 fire damage
    +1-100 lightning damage
    +20 poison damage
    7% faster hit recovery
    requirement -15%

    Now pick 3 prefixes and 3 suffixes and you can get some really nice jewels.

    Unfortunately; rare jewels can only get up to a max of 4 total affixes. But you can get some really nice jewels anyway, as has been shown.

    Since we're in fantasy world, imagine a Jeweler's Sacred Targe of Deflecting stuck full of, oh I don't know, something like this:

    Code:
    Jeweler's Sacred Targe of Deflecting
    Defense: XYZ
    Chance to Block: 80%
    (Paladin Only)
    Fingerprint: Yeah, right
    +20% Increased Chance of Blocking
    30% Faster Block Rate
    +72 Minimum Damage
    All Resistances +85%
    28% Faster Hit Recovery
    Socketed: 4 Sockets (4 used)
    
    Ah, but to dream. I'm willing to bet that such a thing doesn't even exist on the realms on b.net.

    Cinnabar, nickel, of envy and of freedom. I'm after these by rerolling rare jewels with skulls. Great for early twinking.

    I kinda liked this one.

    Ghoul Talisman
    Jewel
    Required Level: 36
    Item Version: 1.10+ Expansion
    Item Level: 80
    Fingerprint: 0x401863c6
    +24 to Attack Rating
    All Resistances +10
    Requirements -15%
    7% Faster Hit Recovery

    AR could be better, but still close to perfect.

    And in case anyone missed it, check out Pavel's recent post in the IFT. Go back to 1.07, find one with the prefix of your choice and have Larzuk socket it to get the same thing with an extra +2 Paladin skills or +30 res all. Who needs runewords?

    10 All Resistance/9 Dexterity/9 Strength/7 Faster Hit Recovery (also known more commonly as 10/9/9/7's) were quite common (thus duped) back when I played on B.Net.
