    Oath or not to oath?

    I have an ethereal Legendary Mallet with damage 75-91.
    I have 3 out of 4 runes in Oath, need a MAL more, but I can trade for it.
    If I socket the Legendary Mallet with socketing quest, 100% 4 socket.
    I have check the numbers, if I'm lucky, I'll have a 330-400 (Ave 365)dmg base speed[20] 1H weapon. If I'm not, 235-282(Ave 258).

    The runes are not expensive:SHAEL, PUL, LUM, MAL. Worth a try?

    Another consideration. Ethereal mace cannot be repair. I can't use the Lvl 16 Heart of Wolverine with give 125% ed and 130% AR bonus to my party.

    I'm a classic fanatic zealot, can anyone tell me have many more IAS I need beside the 50% on weapon to achieve 4 fpa with maxed Fanaticism?

    Thanks for your input

    For weapon speed calculations, use this link. With L25 fanaticism you need 117% IAS to reach 4 fps zealing, i.e. you need 67% IAS from other sources. That's too much IMO, so I suggest to use e.g. an ethereal small crescent which needs just 33% additional IAS.

    Legendary Mallet is not a Mace, it's a Hammer. Therefore the runeword Oath won't work in it. The only maces that can be Oath'd are the Flails/Knouts/Scourges.

    Good point. Another reason not to put Oath into a legendary mallet :lol:
