This is from the FAQ sticky:A question: Would I be right in saying that while dual-wielding during WW, the speed of the off-hand claw is irrelevant?
So if I had Chaos as my main claw, equipped first and on the left, and then equipped a super-slow claw (War Fist, WSM 10, no IAS) as my secondary, on the right, I'd still be hitting the fastest WW breakpoint. Correct?
So it looks like it's probably an average of both claws.The real challenge in reaching maximum WW speed is with your off-hand claw, assuming you arenâ€™t making another â€˜Chaosâ€™ for your off-hand claw. The most popular option for an off-hand claw for WW Assassins is a â€˜Furyâ€™ Scissors Suwayyah or Suwayyah(for the same reason stated in the first paragraph, itâ€™s better to use Suwayyahs instead of Feral Claws/Runic Talons when making â€˜Furyâ€™, as â€˜Furyâ€™ has an innate 40% IAS, which would set you well above the WW speed cap). Bartucs and War Fists(with at least 30% IAS), Scissors Suwayyahs/Suwayyahs(with at least 20% IAS) are just some of the other claws that are able to reach the maximum WW speed.
I understand. So a rare Fool's War Fist (base WSM 10) with a +20 IAS mod on it (which I missed) would easily hit the 4-frame WW breakpoint if socketed with an IAS Jewel (total =-25, breakpoint is -13). If I wanted to lay traps, though, I would suffer very badly because the WSM is so crappy and using BoS wrecks my defense.Both weapons need to reach the last WW break point individually. While the IAS on the off hand claw does not add to your IAS for traplaying or kicks, it does matter, alone and by itself, for whether you reach the last WW BP. What averages on the claws is the WSM (you can find a list of these at the Arreat Summit), which determines the amount of IAS you need for kicking and trapping breakpoints.
Those FAQs were written back in the days when people didn't combine traps and WW on assassins the way they do now. The recommendation of Suwayyahs is for the lower reqs and the higher damage, but it disregards WSM which s crucial IMO to ALL WW using assassins, bramble, ghost or hybrid.
Somehow it's irrevelent to put your "Fool's" off-hand. The attack rating bonus of WW is applied from your main claw. If you use the Chaos in your main hand, your attack will be based out of it disregarding the fool's mod.What I have in mind is using a rare Fool's War Fist (WSM 10) opposite Chaos, and it was implied elsewhere in the stickies that the speed of the off-hand Claw was irrelevant, and so I could be as slow as I liked.

I'm an SP player who will either have to spend some time HF rushing and/or trade away the crown jewels just to get the Ohm for Chaos, so my plan is to steer clear of expensive hybrids and go for something like Voide's Shadow guide, which can (apparently) live with cheaper gear and minimal Traps. I'm hoping that this claw will do the business for that build, despite the crappy WSM.
Thanks for your help!

I play single-player... where's the best place to acquire several claws like the one above? Hell cows? Chaos runs? Shopping? What is shopping, anyone have a link describing the intricacies?I find a claw with the following mods:
+2 Mind Blast
Is this good? Yes it's incredibly good, it may not have + 2Sin or be Eth - Self Repair, but a claw like this will either turn a huge profit trading or contribute to a very well equipped hybrid sin. I include this to point out that while the ideal claws listed at the top will only exist in one or two cases (or as d2pk imports), claws almost as good as them are very exceptional and rare in their own right.
Great fools claws are as rare as rocking horse manure single player. Your best bet is to shop anja for a magic Fools Runic Talon of Quickness and hope for some good staffmods.I play single-player... where's the best place to acquire several claws like the one above?
