Can someone explain to me the benefits of the SOJ? I mean, I found one today and decided to ID it and take a chance. Came out with the following:
You have a "black" (no element) weapon, so you can get any and all types of elemental damage added to it. The accurate way to read +%5 fire damage is "+5% damage as fire". All of your attacks are increased by 5% and imbued with fire.
@SilverFire: Sure. But the ability to always have your fury to Critical Hit 100% of the time is impossible with a -5 SOJ. 1/5 of the time when you are chasing that singe enemy you are shooting yourself in the foot or if you miss hitting multiple enemies. Further, single enemies tend to become the norm if fighting at higher MPs since elites have much more life than normal enemies (especially rare elite packs) and grouping even champion packs for a slam that hits them both can take longer time than actually having something to generate fury.
The key though is that this can be good enough to pull off most of the time, especially using good placements of your tornadoes. I just don't want people actually thinking you can go completely to town without a little more thought with a -5 Stone of Jordan.

With all my excess attack speed and movement bonus It seems I can literally attack continuously with Whirlwind and never lose fury as long as a monster or two is around. The criticals are about 1 out of 3 spins and I'm spinning like 5 times a second. Kind of nice running a zero fury burn build.
Ah, so my no-fire dmg sword is actually now doing 6% additional fire hidden fire dmg. Hmmm. At +125% Attack Speed, (Full Fury Stack + Wrath of Berzerk) and volcano going, that looks like a fire tornado.
Hey, I have an Immortal King's Boulder Breaker with -5 fury HoTA. If you paired that with a -4/-5 SOJ, wouldn't that bring the Fury cost down enough to run it almost 0 Fury with Into the Fray active?
