    need socketing advice

    well first i like to thanks mister baal who made this possible:D

    you see i just killed him and he decided that he wanted to be killed a bit faster next time. so i was granted a nice new item.

    Heaven's Light
    Mighty Scepter
    One-Hand Damage: 157 to 204
    Durability: 32 of 50
    Required Dexterity: 65
    Required Strength: 125
    Required Level: 61
    Mace Class - Fast Attack Speed
    Item Version: 1.10 Expansion
    Item Level: 99
    Fingerprint: 0xd686e0d
    +294% Enhanced Damage
    +3 to Paladin Skill Levels
    +3 to Light Radius
    20% Increased Attack Speed
    -33% Target Defense
    150% Damage to Undead
    33% Chance of Crushing Blow
    +16 Life after each Demon Kill
    Socketed (1: 0 used)

    now as you all can see it came with 1 free socket so now i wonder what to socked in it.

    note will use white_fox boosted level 22 smite with it against baal

    It depends, with Smite here are is the IAS table to hit the break points, if a shael would help with that, you may want to consider doing that, or a Ber for the increase in crushing blow, as that is still affects Smite

    IAS Frames per attack Attacks per second
    0% 11 2.2
    11% 10 2.5
    26% 9 2.7
    48% 8 3.1
    86% 7 3.5
    180% 6 4.1

    and why not something else than shael ?

    - a " pul " , baal is a demon, isn't it ?
    - a " ber" , 53% CB could be fun.

    edit
    did you try to add another socket ?

    ber is to expensive pul is something i can do but will the extra damage from that help???


    shael sounds like a plan but with a shael i reatch the 26% break point and just miss the 48% one to sad i cant find some gloves with 20%fcr and 20ias:(

    that would be sweet.

    i can say that baal lasted less then a min on players 1 with me running up smite him a bit until it barely made a diff anylonger and then swith to blessed hammer and make the kill:xsmile3:

    EDIT: have not though about a second socket that should alloow me to reatch the 48% break point with ease

    Pul won't work, as it affects the weapon damage, and you're swinging a shield.

    how about Eth?

    How can you add a second socket if it spawned with only 1?

    Eth would not help...my recommendation if you can not get a Ber and Shael does not help the break point, is to try a mal..for monster can not regenerate..but that would only be good for using smite as a main attack against normal monsters, that do regenerate..not act bosses.

    So if you only use Smite against baal, Ber is still the best item for that, besides shael, however if that does not help you meet the break point, it does not matter much anyhow. I would not bother socketing it with any other runes beyond that...maybe just hold off for a bit.

    how can you add a socket to things that have none???

    lazaruks socked award should be able to do it.

    or the new cube recipe

    EDIT: 2 shaels should help me with the break points to atleast get over the 48% break point

    I don't think you can socket already socketed items...

    Thats not what I meant. I thought that a unique could only have one socket unless it spawned with more than one. Are you telling me that the original socket is ignored and the game considers this to be a blank item? (no sockets)

    you cannot socket any item that is already socketed. if you really want proof, go ahead and back up your character, try to socket it with larzuk and/or the cube. that way, even if it does happen and you don't really want to use your socket quest, you don't lose anything. but i assure, it wont work. :D

    lone_wolf, you don't have email or pm, so I'm posting here.

    I've been staring at your cool but pixely (?) avatar for sometime now, so I've decided to spiff it up. Is there somewhere I can send it? email [email protected] or pm

    cheers,
    Artemis
