What to put in a Buriza?

What rune\jewel should I put in my Buriza? I am split between Vex (7% mana leach, would allow me to put put a better ring in the place of Manald's Heal), and Ohm, with its massive damage increase. Or maybe there's something even better that I failed to notice or don't have.
What should I do?

A shael!

What the heck, you can get mana leech from like anywhere (gloves, rings, belt, helmet, amulet) and an Ohm in a Buriza (unless it's upgraded or something) is pretty pointless ;D

Yeah, I guess using a Vex for that would be really a waste a valuable rune and a valuable socket. But why would an OHM in a buriza be pointless?
It's a 50% damage increase!

As for the Shael, would it do any good? The buriza already has 80% increased attack speed, very fast attack speed. Even if it gets the extra 20% from shael, would it get it faster?

The 50% is added to the ED already present of the Buriza. It does not multiply your entire damage by 50%, so you won't get a giant damage increase. Besides, with Ohm, you could maybe buy yourself a crappy Faith.

putting ohm into buri would be a waste because it draws a good deal of damage from its maxdamage/clvl modifier, which is not affected by ed%

i guess shaels would work but check the ias tables beforehand, to see if there is any benefit

Shael/15IAS your Buriza. Elsewise you will never ever be able to hit the 9/3 strafe breakpoint at 215 IAS.

I mean really, if you are using the massive damaging Buriza you may as well hit quickly with it.

Then again, if your gear does not allow for mana leach from any other source and your attack speed makes you happy, Perfect Skull it.

I understood why the OHM would be a waste, and put the shael, and I think there was some benefit. Now I've just reached level 50 and started wearing cat's eye, that has 20% increased attack speed, so now I have 120% IAS. I'm not sure if the attack is faster, maybe it is, but only slightly. How do I know the maximum attack speed I can get?

There are a lot better bows out there now than the good old buriza.Either vex or ohm would be a waste.Why not put a cheap and nasty nef in there for knockback and find some mana leach elsewhere.

Buriza was an endgame weapon in v1.09 when Pierce worked with Guided Arrow, but only mid-game at best since then. I wouldn't even socket it. Socket quests are best saved for runewordable items. Even cheap runewords like Harmony blow it away in a +2 or +3 zon only bow.

socket it with a sheal or pskull until you can use windforce, then you can ohm that seeing it already has mana leech on it.

i put an eth rune in mine (-25% enemy defense). now you might think this is crazy or a waste but take a look at what it does.

it makes things easier to hit + 100% pierce = your bolts hit more enemies.

YEAH! Color me old-school, but I love my up'd Nef'd close-to-perfect Buriza on my strafter. Grab a Tal mask and never run out of anything ever again!

My fun-to-run Madam Jenny (originally a mule... get it?)

Up'd Nef'd Buriza
Tal Mask with IAS jewel (looking to upgrade to 15/dam)
Perfect Duress DS
Angelic ammy + ring
IK Gloves and Boots
Verdungo's
Carrion Wind
Titans (switch)
eth Spirit monarch (switch --like she's ever going to go into melee)
Torch + several skillers (passives for now, but she throws a slvl40 Valk)

At lvl 85 she's a real hoot to run with. Always fun to get Hellfire AND Twister going.

Yeah, Buriza's past days are behind it, but boy does it still pack quite a punch, and I'm having a lot of fun with it. Right now I'm in act 3 nightmare, and nothing stands in my way for long:grin:
