    How much more IAS

    I play ladder HC & finally traded for a Windforce. I am gonna play her as a LF/Strafe Hybrid but what I need to know is how much more IAS I need to reach the next breakpoint for the items I have? All she is wearing is LOH with the 20% IAS. Do I accomplish anything by adding a socket in the bow and adding a Shael? Or will I need any additional IAS, like putting an IAS jewel in my helmet to get to the next breakpoint?

    I have read the charts & am not sure how much I need. Thank you for your replies.

    Assuming this table i stole from AB is correct:
    (i dislike the layout in the stickies, info overload :))

    WF strafe IAS table, WITHOUT fanat:

    0% IAS 15/4
    3% IAS 14/4
    11% IAS 13/3
    26% IAS 12/3
    42% IAS 11/3
    46% IAS 10/3
    80% IAS 9/3

    and we'll ignore the bottom 2 due to no /2
    120% IAS 9/2
    157% IAS 8/2

    So atm, you have 40, so putting either a 15 IAS jewel or a Shael in the WF will take you up another 2 bp's, adding Shael in WF and some other form of 20 IAS will take you up to 80 IAS and 9/3.

    I'm wondering myself, is 80 much better than 120?

    Going to switch my treachery to a fortitude soon so I will be downgrading to 80.

    With Strafe on a Wf, I dont aim for anything higher than /3 (11 IAS)

    There is absolutely no actual difference between the 9/3 and the 9/2 breakpoints, since /2 breakpoints dont actually exist server-side. 9/3 is the highest breakpoint you can realistically achieve.

    There's 8/2, but that works like 8/3 and its definitely not worth it for the extra frame....

    Ahh, okay. So 80 can be considered the one to aim for. T4t for information.
