How much ias to hit smite bp with zerker?

Hey, i was wondering how much ias i will need with a berserker axe to hit the final speed break point for smite? The reason I ask is that I have seen different numbers from different sources, so I would really like to clear it up. I'll be using a grief zerker, btw, and will have about a level 32 Fanatacism. I need to know how much ias i will need to roll on my grief, and how much extra ias i will need. Thanks for your help!

You will need 50 ias total to hit the last bp for smite when using a zerker at lvl32 fant. So like any roll + highlords will do it.

hmmm those tables say 35% ias from fanta so it looks like its calculated with a lvl 20 fanta, so it says 55 ias is needed with a zerk but if you use the german weapon speed calculator and put in a lvl 32 fanta it gives a total of 50%ias needed.

And thats why I made the thread. According to this site's calculator, which I've been told is out of date, i will need 53 ias (level 32 fanaticism gives an extra 2 ias). According to the german calculator, I will need 50 ias. And, I've been given the number 52 before also.

Clearly, there is a large difference between 50 and 53. With 50, i wouldn't have to worry about the ias on grief, but if its 53, I would have to make sure my grief ias is at least 33. Of course, i could always just make sure my grief ias is 34, but I would kinda like to know which calculation to go with.

IAS from equipment is subject to some serious diminishing returns, that fanaticism
bypasses. Thus those 2% extra on fana equals more than 2% extra on equip.
