    What to socket in my Merc's Eth Reapers Toll?

    Hi

    My Merc uses an Eth Reapers Toll and I was wondering what was the best thing to socket it with.

    He wears a Guillaume's Face:

    +120% Enhanced Def
    30% Faster Hit Recovery
    15% Deadly Strike
    35% Crushing Blow
    +15 Strength

    My Reaper's Toll Stats Are:

    235% Enhanced Damage
    Ignores Traget's Defence
    4-44 Cold Damage
    14% life Steal
    33% Deadly Strike
    33% chance to cast level 1 Decrep


    Should I add a damage/ias jewel or a Lo Rune +20% deadly strike?

    Or should I add a Ber for the +20% crushing blow.

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    Lo Rune = %68 Deadly Strike
    Ber Rune =+55% crushing blow

    Well I haven't played D2 in a long time, and I'm certainly not going back. But I would go for Ber because it definitely helps with bosses. Amn or dmg/ias could also be an option. But I would go for ber.

    If you reach any breakpoint with the dmg/ias jewel, it's good, but if you don't, you should not use it (doh) but a higher damage jewel, or even an ohm.

    Lo for more DS is not a bad idea at all.
    Ber is a bit expensive in this case, as you already have CB on the helm, and 35% really is almost as good as 55% in this case.
    Amn is cheap, and will help him stay alive, but I guess that's not an issue.

    That's a really nice item, by the way. Remember that +ed%/+max jewels are bugged, so you don't do anything less than optimal by mistake.

    Just to clarify this ... ed/max will work correctly in weapons ... but wont work correctly in the helm or armor.

    Didn't know that.... Then I'll be able to make a killer start-merc weapon with a superior eth 6sockets pike with 6 20%ed/+15max jewels? I got the pike, and one such jewel... 5 to go :D

    Get a Duress armor...that would be so awesome against bosses..would also give you enough crushing blow, and leave his life leech lacking so I'd vote for Amn..Unless he hits another breakpoint with 20% IAS then Shael+Duress+Tal Rasha/Vampire Gaze.

    40/15 to break the IAS bp.

    Ohm if you can't break the bp.
