well i have looked into the speed thats y i was asking he should hit 7frame attack rate if the arreat summit speed calc is correct. never really trusted it though.
main thing is does the %ar help him or not cause even if not every hit went off in time with the huge dmg i believe he will get roughly every other hit and the fhr recovery to boot he should stay alive as for what kind of merc im really not to sure holy freeze has saved me *** plenty of times now. and i dunno eventuall i might end up with a defiance merc because i might be maxing the armor on myself also.
i have used eth cv insight b4 but never had ias so i know it will be faster than when i have used it b4.
as for the shaft i can afford stone so ill prolly end up making that hopfully armor wont be extremly expensive um-pul me hopes.
Your merc needs 35% IAS for 7 frames, 56% for 6.5 frames and 92% for 6 frames, so that jewel will give him the missing 1%. However, I would use Andy's with that jewel for a regular character (e.g. a bowazon) and Andy's+Ral for the merc. Giving him Treachary (preferably in an eth cube bugged armor) will make him reach the 6 frames breakpoint. That runeword also adds a nice bonus to res, reduced curse duration and physical resistance as soon as fade has been triggered.
well i dont really care for treachery it has no ed and the def would kinda bite also im not sure about bugged items i dont like that much either bliz didnt purposely design it that way so i dont think ill be using bugged items. i dont see how you got six frames with treachery that gives you 45ias and andys helm gives you 20 more doesnt that put him at 6.5 frame rate
also as for the missing 1ias your talking about with my planned setup plz explain. i got up and entire frame from 8 to 7 with the jewel unless that calc is not accurate.
