Oh my! Nice rare bow. 433ed! (pic inside)

Found this sweet bow tonight. I was to lazy to start my english diablo copy so the screenshot is in french. It goes like this:

Screenshot here

Demon's song
Diamond Bow
Two hands damage: 175-229
+433% Enhanced damage
+16 to max damage
+205 to attack rating
Adds 9-24 cold damage

Kinda cute if you ask me, too bad it doesnt have ias or fools mod but I don't think these can spawn with such a high ED. I could 40/15 it would be stylish as hell, 473ed and 15 ias :clap:

By the way, it's on USeast ladder softcore.

Pretty nice bow, but it lacks IAS.
Very nice bow indeed, ias would have been possible but not fools.
Lack of ias doesn't matter as needs 105 for 8frame which is easy enough to get.

Nice find.

I was under the impression that the xx% damage/15% ias jewels didn't work in bows. Is this wrong?

ias/%dam jewels work fine...*drools over sweet bow*

They certainly work ;)
The bug with enhanced damage is when it's not ON the weapon (ie on armor, helm or shield).

Diamond bows are nice for one thing, very tight damage range.

wmeredith...now quit messing around with these silly runeword bows and go find a nice wf and pop an ias/ed jewel in it and do some serious damage...off weapon ed is "bugged"...maybe they intended it to be this way....the damage is still added just not as much as you hoped for

off weapon ed is only bugged if accompanied by min and/or max damage. There is no possible way that it can be 'meant' that a 40% jewel is superior to the much rarer 40/15max.

...was it the ed/max min jewel that is bugged or place an ed jewel in combination with a separate min/max jewel?

edit...thx....for info....what i was originally getting at though was the way the damage is calculated when using an ed jewel in armour vs weapon....you will receive more damage if you socket the jewel directly into the weapon

sorry to get offtopic...still wishing that bow was on one of my zons....only 115 ias to strafe 8/2 with that rare...not bad

both jewel with ed and min/max mod together or if the min/max is socketed before the ed.
