Diablo® III

Reroll +% dmg or attack speed on hand xbow?

I got this Balefire Caster:

2719 DPS

+ 1031-1239 fire damage
+ 8% damage
+ 701 dexterity
Increases attack speed by 7%

I'm not sure what to reroll to get a socket. Any advice, please?

I would re-roll damage, the patch that's supposed to fix it might not be coming for another few weeks (or more)

also, if the euro profile is yours, I don't know if it'll actually be an upgrade

It definitely will be an upgrade, I will replace Dawn, not Calamity of course:)

Definitely the IAS, though looking at your profile and the Dawn you have right now...I dunno. The Dawn you currently have would also get the damage upgrade once the patch goes through correcting the %damage bug not working on elemental damage. Not exactly sure on the math off the top of my head right now, but you might break even on both. Best option would be to save it for now and wait for the patch to see what your Dawn will roll as before spending mats on the Balefire.

So I rerolled +% dmg and still got 2662 crossbow, which is more than 100 dps better that my old Dawn:)

Should have rerolled the IAS with the fix to +% dmg going in you'd have had a much harder hitting bow =/

IAS only truly matters when you have full uptime dpsing but every time you have to vault or stutterstep, you are losing the extra attacks the IAS would get you anyways.

this, very bad decision to reroll the %dmg, you just ruined a decent 1hxbow

Re-roll Attack Speed. 'Nuff said.

It would have just around 2540 without the ias, wouldn't it?

I will dump it once I get Nat Slayer, anyway.
