    Bonehew... what to socket

    So, basically, what should I stuff in those holes. Keep in mind I'm not rich and don't have any 40/15's or close to that. Keep my ideas realistic. The character it's for is a WW Barb. Thanks.

    I agree 2x sheal or something like a 30/15 plus sheal would be good also and easier to come by than the 40/15

    30% enhanced damage plus 15% increased attack speed.

    Edit: Does it reach the next breakpoint, though? Bonehew, speed 10 with 30% ias + 35% from ias jewel and shael = -55, just 5% short of -60, which is I think the second ww breakpoint. So two shaels are much better.

    Haven't really dealt in jewels, so isn't used the terms...I was guessing that might be it...but I didn't think jewels could go to 40% ED, thanks for the reply.

    I put 2 shaels in one for my ww barb and it seems pretty fast.

    I put 2 amns in an ethereal one on my merc (man wouldn't I like to find a zod) :drink:

    You’re correct about break points but, and this is only my opinion, the +30% enhanced Dmg makes up for the 5% loss of IAS, because it is very easy to find 5% IAS in a set of gloves

    I read somewhere on dii.net forums that the ogre axe base speed has been tested extensively and it is indeed base 0 instead of the base +10 that arreat summit lists. This means that 2x X/15 jewels or 2 shaels would both reach the final breakpoint at -60. That or i'm an idiot and didn't actually read this (don't remember but it was today).

    That won't work for a WW barb because the 60 IAS to reach the last breakpoint has to be on the weapon itself. The same problem occurs with a BotD War Pike.

    You don't want to waste a Zod on an Eth Bonehew, the damage isn't worth it. Not compared to a good Eth BotD which you could make with that Zod rune.

    IAS has to be on weapon, having it on gloves will not help a WW barb.

    He said he is using on a WW barb not merc so 2 sheals would be a much better socketing because they will allow it to hit the breakpoint.

    Can you remember where you saw this or find it again? I have never heard this and without some confirmed verification would not want to risk it. Your barb will benefit from hitting the breakpoint much more that the extra damage in the ed jewels. So I would use two sheals unless this can be verified by someone.

    I agree that it is not the best weapon but zods are pretty cheap, or were right after the dupe, and if you had one laying around the eth version does considerably more damage. I have an eth bone hew on one of my mercs and its rocks.

    I'm not overly concerned with the speed of the weapon. I'm gonna drop a Rainbow Facet Jewel in there for my Merc that does die from time to time (hard core) cause I'd really like to see this 100% chance of something unreral happening when he dies ... if this works with Merc's? Does anyone know for sure? I'm thinking it would have to cause what would the point in having them in hard core?

    Weapons.txt indicates that Ogre Axes have a base speed of 0.
