    Socketing question

    Hey everyone, long time lurker. I just got an aldur's rhythm (I already have the helm and boots) that has 3 sockets and I was wondering what would be the most beneficial runes/gems to put in there? I'm a fury werewolf. Thanks.

    3*shael for pvp. IAS is very important on a pvp druid.

    that'd be sweet if it worked, but you can't use runewords with set items.


    for mine i used shael shael eth and with +20 extra ias from my gloves i had 5fpa, but then again i use it with a paladin.

    Rune Effects

    For socketed rune effects, see
    http://www.diabloii.net/items/runes/runes-discussion.shtml

    For weapons, the effects are:

    Rune : Bonus
    Nef (#4) : Knockback
    Amn (#11) : 7% Life Steal
    Shae (#13) : 20% Increased Attack Speed
    Hel (#15) : -20% Item Requirements
    Vex (#26) : 7% Mana Steal
    Ohm (#27) : +50% Damage
    Gul (#25) : +20% Attack Rating
    Lo (#28) : 20% chance of Deadly Strike
    Ber (#30) : 20% chance of Crushing Blow
    Cham (#32) Ignores Target Defense

    Ith (#6) : +9 to Maximum Damage
    Tal (#7) : 75 Poison Damage over 5 seconds
    Ral (#8) : +5-30 Fire Damage
    Ort(#9) : +1-50 Lightning Damage
    Thul (#10) : 3-14 Cold Damage, 3 second chill time
    Sol (#12) : +9 to Minimum Damage
    Pul (#21) : +75% damage, +100 AR vs. Demons
    Um (#22) : 25% chance of Open Wounds
    Mal (#23) : Prevents Monster Healing
    Sur (#29) : 20% chance of Hit Blinds Target
    Jo (#31) : 32% chance of freezing target for 3 seconds
    Zod (#33) : Indestructible

    The choice depends on your needs. If the ED applies on top of the added
    minimum (Sol), then this is a good medium level choice.

    Of course, if you can afford it, 3 Bers to give 60% crushing blow looks good too.
