    What do I socket into IK Helm?

    What do I socket into IK Helm? I know a lot of barbs just put topazs, but that seems like a waste. What do the vetern IK barbs use?

    I had two perf. topazes already in my Ik helm when I got it from a trade.. Of course even better would be to use two Ist Runes since they give 30% Mf each and topazes only give 21-25% but they're of course much harder to get and the difference isn't that big so a couple of perfect topzes will do just fine.. :buddies:

    if you're rich put 2x ber into it, don't waste them on anything less than a 40% one though ;)

    I like to socket mine with Prubies, my barb is absolutely not for Mf so I just took a 23%mf Ik helm and put 2 Prubies in it. Every little increase in life helps ;)

    I didn't put anything when leveling, but it worked fine. Doing MF? I'd put shaeled windhammer(for no cold dmg to hork corpse), skulders, steelskull, chancy, goldwrap and wartrav. why bother putting IK set?

    The nice thing about IK set is that the socketable items (i.e. maul and helm) are very very cheap. My current plan to socket helms would be that I have 2 or 3 iK helm for switch depend on the situation.

    IK helm options:

    1. 2 Ptopazes for MF
    2. 2 IAS jewels, this helm would go with 2 PUL runes IK maul to increase my DC/Boss kill speed
    3. 2 LO runes, this is for my safety, getting an extra 10% resist to lightning is good against gloam. I don't have these two runes yet.
    4. 2 Ber runes, again switch out the 2 LO runes for Ber to fight Lister and other melee monsters.

    IK maul options:

    1. 2 Shael for WW
    2. 2 PUL runes to kill Boss using concentrate, this goes with the IK helm option #2 for faster attack speed.
    3. 2 40/15 ias jewel. A Perfect choice, but expensive.

    IK Armor socket with 15 IAS jewel will do the job.

    so there, I would carry 2 helms and 2 maul in my inv and switch out depend on situation. Why not? they're cheap enough.

    Now some one give me LO runes :)

    IST = 25% MF in helms /armor 30% in weapon
