I use a Faith GMB! And it works very good! You deal more damage per hit! Mat Bow fires faster but it deals less damage per hit!trunte said:Hmm now i started wondering if i should switch my GMB faith for a Mat Faith? Im a strafer should i do this or what?
Sure. 8/2 is max strafe. If you insist on using a faith for strafe (I personally would use WF and build an 8 frame multi with faith instead) then definately a GMB. You should check the ias tables but I am pretty sure that only 55% is needed regardless of fanaticism level to hit 8/2 with GMB. This is ridiculously easy to achieve so the Mat bow will not shoot faster than the GMB in this situation.Decebal said:I use a Faith GMB! And it works very good! You deal more damage per hit!

Some people like speed so maybe you are 1 of those speedy Gonzales type !
Hope that Xzon and superdave will answer too!
Better superdave. I have a shadow bow faith on a rogue merc with a multi WF at 7 or 8 frames. The kill speed is ridiculous but I stopped playing that one. Gets a bit annoying when you lose the merc and your speed drops to nothing.superdave said:i use both...more equip options are available with the mat but its so damn easy to hit 8/2 with the gmb anyways....i prefer the extra damage of the gmb....for about the same cost of a nice gmb faith you could pick up an 8ml wf socketed with a 15/xx(i have a 15/40 in mine)...the damage is insane when coupled with fortitude....you can go with a faith rogue and shoot 8/2 with the wf...that i believe is the ultimate strafer
No. That's the problem. The fanaticism ias is different. Leissa Wyrmbane (sorry if I mispelled it) did an extensive explanation of how it works. This ias is called Eias. Basically the breakpoints change completely with fanaticism.trunte said:Every time i think i have this ias thing down i get boned.... Using a faith bow just increases you ias right? For a lvl fanat you get 33% ias that stacks with the rest of you ias thats all right? Then i can go for the breakpoints... (keep finding different numbers for these... so i f*cks me up.. :/)
I think ill build a WF strafer and GMB faith multi
(would appreciate if either superdave or XZON would write the stuff you use (especially how you reach the breakpoint ) and you chosen skills.
Im so confused
Anytime. Good luck with the builds.trunte said:Thanks so much X
