    Facets, mainly. What else does a caster need that comes from a jewel, gem, or rune?

    bleh facets- surely a +2 all or +3tree/20fcr helm with 2 sockets for facets is better

    Poison Necro, 3 Facets gives more damage to most opponents than 2/3 with 2 facets...

    Hybrid / Trap Sin, 20 fcr, option for ias/all res jewels...

    Thats about it really..

    most opponents are nabs :)
    vs chars with res skills are better but for those without facets could be better.
    spose depends who you duel :)

    Other way round ;-)

    Vs opponents with res, - res is better, vs opponents with low res + skills are better.

    -5% res on a opponent with exactly 75% res is a 20% increase in damage...

    To get a 20% increase in damage on an opponent with 0% res you will need -20% res...

    Yeah, thats why quite a few facets etc are wanted :p

    But as a general rule, vs low res opponents, + skills do more damage than - res, and vs a higher res opponent, - res does more damage than + skills.
