Faith GMB: 9 fps >> 8 fps In order to achieve 8 fpa (level 13+ Fanatism) on a Faith Grand Matron Bow, one must sacrifice almost all gears to reach 95% ias (M'av's Diadem+15%ias Jewel, 20%ias amu, 20%ias gloves, 10% Nosf's Coil). While 9 fps only needs 60% ias. What's the difference between 8 fpa & 9 fpa? With the same amount of dex, base damage and ed%, 9 fps only does 1/72, or 1.39% less damage over time than 8 fpa; and both do 8/2 strafe. And this 1.39% 'weakness' can easily get compensated by adding additional damage, ed%, piercing and/or using Atma's Scarab. So in my opinion, achieving 8 fpa for a Faith GMB is a complete waste of effort, 9 fpa does much much better.
