    Check this rare!

    Hey fella's hows everyone doing?
    Anyway i was doing some countess runes and i came upon this spear:
    30 AIS
    289% ED
    9 LIFE LEACH
    Cold res 11%
    +some other minor mods like +min damage and attack rating.

    Anyway is this any good? Say i upgrade it, what kind of damage would i be expecting? Is it even worth it to upgrade?

    Thanks guys,
    Maka

    Exceptionel War spear :

    42-148
    lvl26
    str:25
    dex:25
    (speed -40)

    Elite Hyperion spear :

    140-466
    lvl55
    str:155
    dex:120
    (speed -40)

    Whether or not to upgrade it is up to you, but id say there are better options out there..(like some of the new uniques or runewords, that can be bought or made for less than the runes to upgrade the spear costs..:) )

    generally the "good" rare weps have over 300% ed. but, they are so common i'm going to only keep those over 400.

    Alright yeah thanks guys. Yeah i wasn't sure about it, and my merc needs a new weapon but yeah the ED is kinda low. I dont really find very good rares so finding anything close to 300% really caught my eye.

    That's an Arioc's Needle- great weapon, especially if you're using it on an Act II Merc for the +4 boost to his aura.

    An elite version of that rare spear would be comporable to, but slightly worse than a Bonehew:

    270-320 ED (Max damage can reach over 600)
    30% IAS
    2 Free Sockets
    Bone Spear and Corpse Explosion

    Throw in a couple of AMN's and you get 14% life leach to go with it. Add to all that, it's only TC 60 so it's relatively common- In fact I found mine doing a countess run.
