    I think damage wise, the 3+/3+ does a little more damage and adds 3+ to other combat skills as well. Remember with the 25/-25 that resists wont drop below -100. However, the 25/25 would be nice for dueling other fohers or those that stack resists. Also i believe that 25/25 are easier to come across than the other one since a 2 sock 3 combat / 3 foh scepter is rare.

    The end damage will depend on how much other +skills you have. Remember that once foh hits 40 and goes up more, high +skills would add more damage than a facet.

    In the long run...+3combat/+3foh/2 facet > anything. Even more so if it comes with +3 conviction {less skill pts required to hit 25} & holyshield.

    The damage might be a little higher in the long run, but don't forget the -25%light resists that you can get with a 3foh/5sock sceptor. With that in mind, I'm thinking there is no comparison.

    Wouldn't 3foh/3conviction/5open sock sceptor be best? I've heard it's possible, let me know what you think.

    Chia, when i started the thread, i was assuming that conv was already at lvl 25, so (if it's possible) i forgot about that.

    Btw, thanks for your the replies guys :thumbsup:

    25/25 +3 foh scepter (8567 damage) adds more damage than 10/10 +3 combat/+3 foh scepter (8342 damage) i tested this on a single player character, but the 10/10 +3/+3 one does give 1% higher blocking with holy shield (lvl 25 vs lvl 28 holy shield)... thats with +27 combat skills total (with the 3/3 scepter)... i think you should use the 25/25 +3 foh one

    yes, at high levels, the 25/25 scepter wins out. i was selling a 3comb/3foh/2os scepter and a buyer did the math to find out. and you dont need 1000000000 ists, i think i ended up selling it for 4ists. :lol:
