    socketing BK swords

    i have BK swords. i socketed Sacred Charge with shael, and i like the result, my question is what should i socket to the other sword(Tribal Guardian) with? also with shael? or simply with eth rune? (for this option,i personally prefer socket it with shael). or should i socket it with +IAS/+%dmg jewel? i dont have such kind of jewel right now. IF i had both +IAS/+%dmg jewel and shael rune, then probably i would like to socket the sword with shael (for the IAS), and socket the jewel to armor(headgear, armor), since u can't expect +IAS from shael-socketed armor(this will give u FHR). then again, i heard a rumor that when u socket +IAS/+%dmg jewel into armor, the dmg will be bugged. any suggestions?

    As far as i know, only +Max damage is bugged in armor. For a frenzy baba, an ed/ias jewel in armor will work pretty well. AS for the sword, shael it.

    Sheal it like moonunit said. You would get the last break points for wirlwind with a sheal. And they are not work a ed/ias jewel.

    It works as Rik descibed. It's not the min or the max alone that's bugged, just when it's found in combination with an ED mod on the jewel.
