    How to reach 4fps w/o fanat

    I have a holy shock pally and I use crescent PB, highlords, and plan on using andy's visage with a 15%ias jewel. Will this reach 4 fps? It'd be 75%ias which I think the FAQ chart said was required, but the FAQ also said some numbers were wrong.

    Also, should I even waste a socket with a 15% ias jewel or just switch dracul's grasp (current) for laying of hands or another 20% ias glove. Life tap has saved me plenty of times already though...

    Thanks for any info.

    75% IAS is needed. That is the right number.
    I got my Tesladin with 80% IAS. My gear is:
    PB Crescent Moon (20%)
    Sigon's gloves and boots (30%)
    Crow Caw (Unique Tigulated Mail) socketed with 15% IAS (30%)

    Andariel's Visage, Highlords both provide 20% IAS, you can try for those also. upgraded Twitchtoe seems to be a decent option as well.

    Steal Skull is 10% IAS, as well as Goldwrap, you can use those if you like some mf too.

    jide,

    Current equip for my Tesaldin is :-
    CM in Phase - 20% IAS
    Highlords - 20% IAS
    Lava Gout - 20% IAS
    Guillaume's Face with 15% IAS Jewel
    Total - 75%

    Non IAS stuff:-
    Um'd GA
    Um'd Hoz
    Ravenfrost
    Carrion
    Gore Riders
    T-Gods

    when I hit lvl 83 I'm gonna use Andariel's Visage with a 15% IAS and then swap the gloves for Dracul's.

    I've tried swapping the gloves early but notice the speed difference (I'm a speed freak!) so swapped them back. The only problem I've ever had is with IM.... I've got a WWS (Shael+Nef) on a swap, but it's just a matter of getting lucky and not get IM'd mid zeal :-(

    So as to your question ..... I hope the answers yes cos it cost me a lot in trading otherwise !

    Cheers

    Hmmm
    PvM i think LoH is as good if not better than Draculs for lowED builds, as every act boss is a demon and 1/3 of all monsters are demons too. And it frees other IAS eqpt slots.

    phase with 40% ias does the trick. Ya its strange but it works. See when you use a weapon with a base speed of like -30 you need alot less ias. Then a weapon with a speed of +20.

    Use a Crescent Moon military pick + Sol'ed Stormshield on switch to counter IM. :idea:

    Or, to be even safer:
    6-socket military pick with a mix of shael and 5/5 lit facets for best results.

    Thanks for the info guys. I am using a phase, puma, with the crecent moon runeword. But i need an extra 75% ias (including the 20 on the runeword) to reach 4fps.

    I still got a question for Ian though, how are your resists in hell? It doesn't seem like you can get 90/90/95/90 with your setup but I might be missing something. I have a GA too and I feel like I need to max out resists for it to be useful. Not rich enough to sink 2 UMs into my GA and HoZ though.

    jide,

    I'm at work at the mo so I can't remember exactly but I think its about 68,24,80,30

    Base -100
    20% all resists from 2 anya quests
    15% all resists from UM in armour
    50% all resist from Shield
    22% all resist from UM in Shield
    ??% fire resist from gloves

    15% all resist GC :surprise:
    ??% light resist from Highlords

    I forget the rest but I'll check tonight.

    But as a Tesaldin if it hits the fan.... turn salvation or Light resist on, slows the killing speed down but keeps the rest of the party alive so they can kill stuff.

    Cheers

    Ian L.

    P.S. GA is 198% and HoZ is 197% so I felt they were worth the extra over a P'Diamond :winner:
