    Ok, i'm confused about breakpoints

    Hey... having fun with Diablo 2?

    Here's my problem: i'm reading the zealbarb guide by jordy666, but i don't understand the "breakpoints story". The only thing i know right now is that if you reach a certain amount of % in (for example) IAS, you'll attack your target faster right?

    Sounds like you understand it just right. That's how it works, if you reach a certain "breakpoint" in IAS, to use your example, you attack faster. Any additional IAS past that but not enough to hit the next "breakpoint" is not necessary. The same idea holds true for Faster Hit Recovery (FHR) and Faster Cast Rate (FCR).

    Truth be known, you don't have to worry about these breakpoints too much. They are nice if you are trying to optimize your character for PvP and such. But for normal questing and PvM just equip what you want and you'll do fine. Only if you encounter problems would you really need to start worrying about breakpoints.
