Worth Upgrading?

Hell Meph dropped a rare dimensional blade last night that I was considering upgrading:

20% IAS
296% ED
6% Mana leech
-20% Requirements

I believe it also had some AR but not positive. The mods listed above I'm positive about tho. That might make a pretty nice phase blade, especially if I can socket it and get two sockets (or do rares only ever get one socket?).

Although a Fal & Um rune needed to make the upgrade makes it a rather expensive upgrade IMO (just looked at the recipe).

I don´t think its worth upgrading.
I would use the UM to make a crescent moon phase blade istead.

It would only get one with socket quest, but can spawn with two initially.

Its a possibly upgrader but I would hang on to it and see what else comes along as it seems as soon as I upgrade, socket, trade for things something better drops! Grrrrr

i think I have a mule full of 280-400% Rares I havent converted as I have better uses for UMs right now

...and rares still only gets 1 socket, so that's right. I'd do what AuraAllen suggested too. Very nice sword nonetheless! Would you like to let us in on the lvlreq?

EDIT: STINGER beat me to it!

I'll check the clvl tonight and post it.

A high ED Crescent Moon PB would be better, but I'm not sure a low % ED would be tho. The range is 220% to 260% ED.

I've heard that lightsabre is too weak for Hell, so I would think that this weapon isn't that great. The -20% to requirements isn't really needed, either.

My Conc Barb made Guardian using a 177% Lightsabre socketed with Amn. He made liberal use of Battle Cry and War Cry, which helps a lot. He also didn't play in large group games, usually just 2 or 3 people total (characters on my other computers actually, lol).

I would upgrade that if it were ethereal, if not I don't think it's worth it....bear in mind cresent moon's other mods not just ED....

It's clvl 48, I forgot to look at the actual damage numbers. To just use it as is doesn't really light my fire much. Dimensional blades are base speed zero, so it's not a super fast sword or anyting.

I vote Thumbs Down for an Upgrade.

Dimensional Blades have the same max damage as a Phase. Minimum damage on it would increase so your overall average damage would increase.

Still not worth the Um however, just keep it around as a nice leveling sword.
