    what to socket in wand?

    hello, i recently traded for a perfect boneshade :winner: and i'm wondering what would be good to socket into it. my char is a bone pvp (if it wasn't obvious) and figure i should try to find jewels with fhr or fcr (do these even exist?). what mods should i look for and how high do they go? thx for any help.

    Well, an Io rune is a nice cheap idea for extra life. Jewels could better suit your needs, but are of course harder to find.

    Prefixes that may be helpful:

    Shimmering All Resistances +5-10
    Scintillating All Resistances +11-15

    Dun +7-12% Damage Goes To Mana

    Suffixes that may be helpful:

    Truth 7% Faster Hit Recovery

    Hope +9-20 To Life

    Daring +4-9 Dexterity (helps a little with block)

    Virility +5-9 Strength (lets you pump vit more)

    A vibrator. :lol:

    Seriously, though, I would try for more life, or better yet, faster cast rate. Got to reach for that 125% !!

    Otherwise... eh.. it's rather good.. maybe zod it for style points?

    Faster Cast Rate does not spawn on jewels, runes, or gems.

    yup, Io or all resist jewel will do it for ya.

    if you can get a jewel with +20 life and a useful secondary mod that'd kicks Io's arse.

    +20 life all resists +15 would be godly

    Sorry to threadjack, but I think the original question was answered so I thought I'd sneak this in.

    Just curious, but do you all feel a Boneshade is better than a good white wand? I have both (my boneshade is kinda low end), and tend to use the white wand more. Opinions?

    A good white wand is way better than a good boneshade IMO

    dah!

    I recently ran into the same dilemma, Perf Boneshade open socket....hmm what to put into it? I decided to Imbue Rare jewel numerous times until i got something worthwhile...IF you didnt know you could re-imbue a jewel...well u can. :idea: just takes piles of perfect skulls. SO after about 14 tries i got a jewel with mods....

    +9 dex

    +11 resist all

    +1 to max dmg

    +2 mana after each kill

    i thought what the heck...prolly can't get too much better than that.
    just thought I'd share :lol: hYp.
