What to socket in IK maul?

What are ur suggestions to socket into an IK maul, im not that rich, so Ed/ ias jewels are a bit much. But shaels and such are not a big problem.

Also would it be wise to add an extra socket so it would have 3. And then put in 2 shael 1 eth. Because of the low AR with comes with the large str req.

any input would be appreciated

1: This question has been asked a lot, "search" for maul or hammer ^_^
2: You can't add another socket
3: I think shael+shael is the cheapest option for a ww-Ik barb
4: AR with IK barb: Angelic amu+ring+ravenfrost, or for even more AR angelic amu+2*ring , use demon limb on switch for the enchant charges. (thank Halciet for this answer, I'm just repeating him :teeth: )

If you have a complete set...

If you have the entire IK set on, you don't really need more AR. I have a lowend raven frost and my WW is hitting fine. If you need more AR you can use AR grand charms. Remember that your level vs monster level affects how well you hit.

I socketed mine with a 39ED/15IAS jewel and a 38ED/15IAS jewel, I get the +30IAS fot he BP and the dammage always helps!! but if you're not rich enough for the jewels, go for the speed with 2 IAS jewels, or 2 shaels, however I think 2 shael's is overkill.

Actually...

I believe the WW breakpoints are -30 and -60. What you need in the weapon to reach that depends on the weapon. Since the IK maul has a base speed of 10, 40% ias, that's -30 right there. You can use whatever combination to reach -60 - I used 2 shaels cuz my 15% jewels sucked anyways ;)
