    Upgraded Rib Caclulations: What weapon speed?

    Hey all,

    Just upgraded my ribcracker *pauses to wipe drool away* and am flummoxed on the breakpoints for a stalagmite. The summit says it is a 0 base weapon speed, and with 6 in WW that'd put me at 9/5/5/5/5 fury, which isn't far off 20% from a shael for an extra 8/5/5/5/5 (can i just make up for it with OIAS these days?). BUT, that's just what the arreat summit says. The german calc says a stalagmite is a 10 speed weapon (slower than quarterstaff) and the assertion is further backed by electricblue's reccomendation (kudos on the guide :thumbsup: ) to shael the upgraded ribcracker. What's the deal?

    Try attacking with it unShaeled and see if looks like 5 frames or not...

    I suspect Arreat Summit is wrong. It has been before.

    Arreat summit IS wrong about their listed wspeed for a stalagmite. I forget whether it's 5 or 10, but it's not 0 like a quarterstaff. Ppl here tested it before (in 1.10 beta i'm pretty sure, as well as 1.09) and got a diff weap speed than A.S. says.

    *looks for TheDragoon to back him up*

    P.S. I'd just go w/ what electricblue's guide says, to play it safe ;)

    I'm not on my comp so off the top of my head i'd say... 330-480? Leastways, that isn't all that far off. Lots of fun, my highest reccomendations.

    Oh, and it makes that fun cracking sound when you connect. Now you CAN'T beat that :xirish:

    As for the speed, i figured the summit would be wrong if both german calc and electric say otherwise...anyway, i can always take the shael out if the reinforcements say otherwise. Thx guys.

    *Gives thumbs up*
    I just got this IMed to me and a Stalagmite is a base -10 weapon (that is slower that the summit says).
