    Steeldriver

    What would be the best way to upgrade a steeldriver for a werewolf druid?

    Re: Steeldriver

    There's only one way to upgrade weapons - using the Horadric Cube. There are two recipes to do so, one for normal -> exceptional, and the other for exceptional -> elite.

    1 Ral Rune + 1 Sol Rune + 1 Perfect Emerald + Normal Unique Weapon = Exceptional Version of Weapon

    1 Lum Rune + 1 Pul Rune + 1 Perfect Emerald + Exceptional Unique Weapon = Elite Version of Weapon

    If you're asking about socketing, a Jewel of Fervour with a good prefix is a good idea, depending on IAS breakpoints.

    Ribcracker at level 31. MUCH better.

    EDIT: In case you've never seen the mods on it...

    Ribcracker
    Quarterstaff
    Two-Hand Damage: 59 to 159
    Durability: 130 of 130
    Required Strength: 25
    Required Level: 31
    Staff Class - Fastest Attack Speed
    Item Version: 1.10+ Expansion
    Item Level: 87
    Fingerprint: 0x317701d0
    +15 to Dexterity
    +100% Enhanced Defense
    +264% Enhanced Damage
    +30 to Minimum Damage
    +65 to Maximum Damage
    +100 Defense
    +100 Maximum Durability
    50% Increased Attack Speed
    50% Faster Hit Recovery
    150% Damage to Undead
    50% Chance of Crushing Blow

    When you upgrade it, the damage goes through the roof, and the requirements are still extremely low (Level 56, 63 Strength, 35 Dexterity). 1x Shael rune or Jewel of Fervor will get you where you need to be. x).

    Re: Steeldriver

    So the resulting item is >not< a steeldriver, just an exceptional version of a maul?

    And as for the ribcracker, I've never seen one, but I spose I'll keep my eyes out for it.

    The resulting item will be a steeldriver, but instead of being a 'Great Maul' it will be a 'Martel de Fer', so the damage will get much higher.

    ribcracker goes to ~380-620 damage when upgraded and has more IAS and CB to top it off, much better choice for an upgrade.

    Re: Steeldriver

    That would be an upgrade to elite, which is much more expensive than upgrading to exceptional. But yeah, Ribby owns Steeldriver once you get it.

    Re: Steeldriver

    If you're looking for an end-game weapon, then yes, go ribby. But for many melee builds, up'd steeldriver is the/i] weapon for levels 34-55.

    Re: Steeldriver

    oops I added the + max damage in the wrong spot, the max damage gets added after the ED%
