    Newb jab q

    This maybe should have been in the amazon forum but it is so basic that I feel a bit embarassed asking.

    Is jab affected by items in terms of ias?

    I know things like fury and ww are not, I've tested different speed spears and they do jab slower/faster according to their base speeds.

    I am just being lazy here and not testing but if you know, a yes or no answer will save me time.
    Thanks

    Yes. All the breakpoints can be found in the Zon FAQ. Page 2 iirc.

    (Btw, Fury is affected by IAS if using a Slow weapon)

    Thank you...I didn't know about the fury/slow weapon thing...was always under the impression that fury wasn't...does that mean if I use a slow weapon (e.g. thunder maul) I can make it nice and fast by using ias on gear?...that would be nice:)

    No... You can't make it fast without IAS Directly on the Weapon. (Same with WW)

    If you go with only IAS from items (not the weapon), you'll only be able to speed it up a few frames.

    In the Druid forum there's a sticky with a link to TheDragoon's Calculator. Play around with it a little.

    Thanks for the point to that FAQ...the only thing is...it actually answers my question in a confusing way...(cut/paste)

    3. Is Jab speed dependent on the weapon speed?

    Yes, after the expansion pack was released, the weapon speed became a factor which determines the rate you jab away at the monsters.

    but I think I know where they are coming from:)...i.e it is only a 'factor'.

    made me laugh with the spear ias ...to achieve the 4 fps with a -10 base speed spear = 295% ias...is this possible?

    the -10 base speed java 4fps at 170% ias is possible :) but even with a BoTD spear (60%) + 60% ias armour + 20% ias amu + 20%ias gloves + 45% ias hat + 10% ias belt...still leaves me 70% ias short...or are they just publishing that to tease ppl?
