    BvB socketing question

    Hi,

    What do BvB / Melee barbs usually socket their stormshields and arreats with?

    Setup is Fort/Dungo/Stormshield/Arreats/Gores/Raven/Angelics/Dracs/Ebotd

    I'm thinking just ED jewels? I already hit the 48% fhr breakpoint, and stats aren't really an issue. Res? I have an um in the arreats right now. DR is max b/c of storm and dungo already.

    Thanks.

    Usually, it is best to socket the arreats and SS with 40 ed / 15 max jewels. Other favorites are ed jewels w/ str, dex, fhr, -req or cham for cannot be frozen. Since you don't need the stats or fhr, probably best to go with the ed / max jewels.

    For my bvb, I use an ed / str jewel in the helm and an eld in the SS (better block%, less points into dex).

    I believe max damage is bugged on armours when using 40ed/15max, you'll only get the benefit of the 40ed. Faster hit recovery isn't important at all if your BvB and using either Conc or WW - no benefit. 40ed/15ias is great for Conc if you need a bit more speed to hit a breakpoint. 40ed/9 (dex/str) great for ww.
