1hander APS: what value least mana wasting?

Thanks to gurus in WD forum, I got Skorn 1.31 CoB super experience

Just wondering if there are counterpart of any super efficient APS for 1handers
so that mana is least wasting?

(I lost track of the original post)

Many thanks for enlighting me

If you are talking about a knife or a sword, 1.78 aps is probably your best choice, can get there with three items of 9%.

Hmm... And where did that 1.78 come from? Could you or anyone explain that one please? :)

CoB ticks every 30/aps frames; That number is rounded down so 30/1.78 = 16.85 will be rounded down to 16 frames per tick.

thanks Wachati
you are so helpful :)

My situation is quite akward,
I've got a manaj knife of 1.4. To get the 27% add-on APS
Glove 8% (super great trifector, cc10+aps8+cd27+ I158+Armor258;
recently purchased, quite sad to let-go)
Witching hours (Intelligence version available for APS 8 or 9 available, tagged with resistances)
Inna temperance (APS 8 or 9 available)

3 of the above, if glove is to stay, summed to 24, 25 or 26
For residual of 1 or 2 or 3 APS, there is no such item in rings with 1 or 2 APS.....

wondering how i could deal with this kinda odds?
Many thanks again

I just replied something similar in another thread.

If I'm in your shoes, I'd stick to Skorn at 1.31 APS. That's the optimum APS for all points of consideration. 1Handers don't have an equivalent "sweet spot" for APS considerations.

EDIT: ok wait, I just saw your profile. The 1.31 APS for Skorn needs to come with -FB SoJ. That means the ring slot helps with mana instead of your rare ring pushing up APS. We need the SoJ to help with mana management, going at 1.31 APS, stacking GF, BBV, PTV. That also means your defense and mitigation gets re-allocated to other slots. End-game top-tier gears in most slots. You're probably not ready for 1.31 APS yet, you'd perform far better at 1.17 APS where Intel, CHC, CHD provide you similar DPS, and you can run with GF, BBV, PTV for efficiency.

Indeed, (1.00 + 0.03) x 1.27 = 1.308, optimum breakpoint for 2Handers. Provided she stays alive.

Try this (or something similar) in your AH filter:
1) all Armor types
2) Max Mana
3) 30% bonus against elites
4) Firebat skill.

Usually only 1-2 pages of rings appear.
