    what to put in shako?

    Hey, I was just wondering what I should put in my shako. A ber, or something else? Maybe a p ruby?

    Put a ber in it if you need more damage reduction, an um if you need resists, a sheal if you need FHR, or a sexy jewel.

    Zod if it's ethereal. =)

    It depends really, try to complete your gear first, find what you are missing/want more of and socket accordingly.

    Which isn't ofcourse the optimal choice. 10 points x 3 = 30 life saved, while p ruby gives 38 life.

    hey, that's true. Thanks for the tip ;) I will spend my next two level ups on dex and insert a ruby in the shako instead.

    Or maybe a jah would be better? Is the jah bonus boable?

    Edit: tested it on sp with ~perf gear.

    Shako+emerald+10 points of VIT more = 4132 HP
    Shako+ruby= 4148 HP
    Shako+Jah = 4170 HP

    so the Jah option is superior. Not sure if getting 22 HP more is worth a HR, but.. ;)

    I would put Cham because of cannot be frozen. Ber in Hoz, and your resists should be max anyway, so no need to waste Um's and MF is useless in real combat.

    Well, CBF doesn't really mean much to a hammerdin.. I mean, I don't care whether I'm frozen or not, I use teleport to move and freeze does not slow my casting rate.

    and you can't really put anything in spirit sacred targe ;) Personally I dislike the HoZ build, it's much slower.

    jah is better if you have high life, the difference as you have calculated it is not worth the waste of jah imo.
