    White or Boneshade?

    im a PvP bonermancer, wondering if a white with a add like +3 Bspear is better then a nice Boneshade for PvP i have a boneshade right now, and am have 500k and am trying to roll a good wand in a2 norm. Guess what im saying is is a White RW with a add suchs as +3 Bspear(or Bspirt i dont know if it rolls in a2)worth it for PvP.

    Most of them time, a good white is better than a Boneshade. But you should find out which one does the most damage for you...and use that one.

    Its not always about damage. Speed, mana regeneration, fast hit recovery, fast cast rate, resists, and life are all variables one needs to consider. Damage is good and all, but if you can't deal it out fast enough or you can't take a hit, chances are you'll lose no matter how much damage you dish out.

    This is why I dislike both boneshade and white wand, they are simply too slow, ie it's difficult to reach 125 fcr with them equipped without sacrificing many of the other important attributes.

    Lets look at boneshade: Tremendous +skills to bone, good damage, BUT no mana and worst of all, only 25 fast cast rate.

    White: Has the potential to deal insane damage, but again virtually no mana, and casts slower than a boneshade.

    I recommend Hoto over both of those rejects:
    1) +3 to all skills
    2) 40% fast cast rate
    3) +mana
    4) +10 dex, useful if you're a block necro
    5) Oak charges (more life)
    6) Resists. 40% resist all on a perfect one.

    If you can't afford a hoto, then wizspike or suicide branch are much better alternatives than boneshade or white also.

    Boneshade is there, for people who don't want to exert the effort to find a great Whiteable wand
