    what should I socket my eth reaper's toll?

    It's for my merc with stone armor and for helm I may use gaze or guillaume's face.

    i like amn. or ohm if youre rich and really want the damage. ive heard of nef for keeping the monsters back. some people like shael, but with all the wandering and standing around mercs tend to do, i dont think minor increases in their hitting speed is worth it.

    i socketed mine wit a shael (it's actually a perf noneth :()

    that brgs the speed from fast atack speed to very fast
    which means constant leaching

    it really depends on u
    shael-more speed, more leaching
    amn-leaches more on one shot
    ohm-more damage(but really expensive)

    hope that hlped

    He already has enough leech with that weapon, so I wouldn't give him a Gaze. With Guillaume's, he already has 35%CB and a little speed would help. I would shael it, I guess, except 15%IAS are enough for him to reach the next breakpoint (I'm too lazy to do that now :) ) and you are rich enough to afford a %ed/IAS jewel. It depends on which auras and other off-weapon %ed he benefits from. If he won't benefit much from that, better put that jewel into the helm.

    IMO ohm is a waste, for the price of it you can get Lo and make a fortitude.
    So krischan you're saying 15ias is enough for reaching next bp ?
    And Guillaume's is a good choice? don't forget that gaze is 20dr also.

    Ohm seems pretty pricey for only 10% more than a 40% ED jewel that's not really worth much without a good second mod.

    I'm still too lazy to check it :p Use the weapon speed calculator found here. I works for mercs as well.

    BTE, I never give my mercs really valuable stuff, so my advice regarding ed/IAS jewels and HRs are only theory. They usually get Tals helm/Crown of Tieves, Gris armor/Black Hades with 3 IAS jewels and Reaper's Toll/Kelpie Snare, the MF sorc merc being an exception. He has an AmnAmn Tomb Reaver, PT Stealskull and PT Skullder's.
