    grief phase blade question

    Hello, I had a question regarding using a grief pb with smite.

    I know the ias doesn't matter on the grief, but if I plan on skipping out on cbf and I am frozen, does the ias on weapon come into effect?

    I am intending on using 20% ias glove with max fanaticism, would getting a 40% ias weapon allow me to free up a glove slot?

    Any help is appreciated, thank you!

    with maxed fanaticism u don´t need any ias while using a phaseblade to reach the max smite breakpoibt, not matter if its a 30 or 40 ias grief.
    the 20 ias glove matter when u´re cursed with decrep: u need 20 ias with a 30 ias grief on the gloves to reach 7 fpa and 10 if its a 40 ias grief (in total 110 to reach 6 fpa). i don´t know exactly how the frozen would change the numbers, but i think a raven is a pretty standard choice for smiters, or a cham in whatever helmet u use

    i use phase blade with max zeal and max fanaticism and when you turn blue from the cold you do slow down a bit. i do not know whether adding overkill IAS will push through that cold aura effect, and make you keep attacking as fast as before. but it cannot hurt?

    Alright ty for your help krupa.

    How much ias would I need with a grief berserker axe for 7 fr smite? I seem to recall the grief having 34 or higher ias was important? Had all this stuff down long ago and can't remember lol.

    Use weapon speed calculator. Depends on your fanat level.
