iirc...you will need a total 147isa to hit the last breakpoint with a GSA bow.
+60 on bow
+20 with shael
+20 highlords or cat's eye
+30 Mav's helm +20? Steelskull
+10 crowclaw? or +20 twichto..(sp)
+10 N-coil belt
+10-20 on crafted gloves

good luck have fun with the GSA one of the best bows imo!

First of all, I was wrong above, its only 50% off-weapon IAS if you shael the bow, 55% off-weapon IAS if you jewel (ED/IAS) it.

He's strafing... 147% IAS is for an 8/2 strafe. The difference between a 9/2 and an 8/2 strafe is pretty much nothing. If you go for 147% IAS, you're overshooting by 30% IAS (you only need 120% IAS) - 30% IAS is a TON of IAS and a TON of gear sacrifice once you get the easy IAS (gloves, jewels).

I suggest:
ED/IAS (or Shael) the bow
IAS gloves

The next bit of gear depends if you're mfing or not.
Mfing:
Stealskull
Goldwrap
Cat's Eye

Questing:
IAS jewel in helm and armor
Nosferatu's coil/Goldwrap

If you want to use razortail or free up the belt, either shael the bow or use Andarial's Visage. Note that if you use Andy's Visage, you can put anything in its socket (ED it - highly recommended).

This is what I suggest when using Goldstrike for strafing. And I highly recommend the bow, even late game (upgraded bow).

In fact, with only a few resist charms (20% all resist), I've been able to go from Act 1 through Act 5 hell in my MF gear setup with a measly -50 all resist (except fire, LoH) - gloams pose the only problem, but then they do that for just about every character class. Not only that, but it's been pretty much a breeze the whole way through (I have FA and cold arrow max'd for immunes). I do have a sturdy might mercenary, however.

UPDATE: The ancients were a breeze too, no problems whatsoever, even in full MF gear and -50 all resist. Valk and merc tanked the entire time.

here's the lost link. I found this at the AB awhile ago, it was for 1.09
there is lots of nice new things in 1.10... I'm working a Strafeazon to lvl 99
and i could always tell the difference at 8/2.... 7/2 is nice but I always ran
out of arrows to soon... anyway good luck
