    Those are useful for v/t weapons. Especially is you find one with +holy shield, +fanat.

    the nice thing about those weapons that these guys might have failed to mention is that with a base -10 weapon and level 20 fanat (or more), then you need only 40 ias to hit max smite frames....those already have it. As they both have nice plus skills on them, you free up some major gear choices and you can socket them with some nice resist jewels. Btw, that rosebranded scepter is a *killer* vindi/temp magical weapon. it gives a huge boost to foh and a little to conviction, in most peoples case, saving some skill points. I would have to say that they are both most excellent v/t weapons. If you are on east, I might be interested in looking at them. Pm me about it if you are.

    The only one of those even worth using for a v/t is silence. Also, those aren't better than a rosebranded warscepter of quickness. WTF is a redeemer doing there? For the +7x dmg? That is a sad v/t choice.

    This is why:

    rosebranded (+3 combat skills) gives more smite dmg than any +2 weapon like doom, etc.

    Of quickness means you don't need ANY IAS items. That means you can socket the scepter with berber or umum or other cool stuff. SO that means you can 40% cb, +3 combat skills and 40% IAS on a magic scepter, with like no str req.

    That owns the hell out of doom and astersons and silence for straight smite vs smite. For pvm and all round pvp silence is a better choice due to the resists etc. Asterons and doom are stupid cause a warscepter is better and they are bm anyway.
