    Shael or Eth in my upgraded buriza?

    is -25 percent targets defense of Eth very useful?

    Or is it just better increasing attack speed?

    Shael won't do a thing, buriza is slow base but already has enough ias to make it fast. Adding shael won't see much of a difference. If you have trouble hittin eth would be an ok choice or if you can get a jah that would be even better, but itd does not work on boss. Personally I would never up it because it's the +max dmg based on lvl thats good on it. Upping it just makes more requirement and a tiny more damage. Hel is nice if you find yourself spending too much stat points to wear.

    Second what sweet said about not upgrading buriza, it's really not worth it for a small increase in max damage (and an actual DECREASE in min damage). Saving the points on strength and dropping them into dexterity is much more worthwhile.

    Whether the 'shael' is worth it depends on the rest of your equipment. Buriza with it's IAS always hit's 4 frame strafe(the fastest crossbow strafe), but if you're planning on using multi-shot a lot you might want to get that frame or two faster:

    70% 14 (this one you always hit Buriza)
    95% 13 (this one jus a bit IAS, probably from gear like Laying of Hands)
    138% 12 (if you aim for this 'shael' in you xbow might be a good idea to not restrict you equip choices too much)
    215% 11 (don't even think of this:p)

    I consider Jah generally inferrior to 'eth' when it comes to help in hitting because it doesn't help you against targets that are the most difficult to hit(bosses), but you could simply use guided against such targets with a bowazon.

    It's better to just stick a Nef in there for the knockback.
