SKORN AND MARQUISE RUBY

Barbarian
Will Skorn benefit more from Marquise Ruby or Emerald?
Based on the PTR threads, Marquise Ruby benefits black weapons with fast attack speeds.
The Skorn is a black weapon, but with 1.00-1.11 weapon APS.
However, it also can have up to 50% weapon damage multiplier.

Just wanted to see if anyone has tried on PTR to socket a Skorn with the ruby.
Experiences?
LOL at the bump after 2 minutes.
Dude, search the general forum, its been discussed many many many times before.
i thought we was friends koala !
My apologies.
a quick search and found this previous thread:

http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/7709111939?page=7#123
Quoting OP from that thread:
Calculate first, speak later.
The only right answer: physical weapons even before the patch. Echoing, skorn, calamity, 1 in 1000000 physical rares. Manti is only an exception for the 2 sockets. After patch every single physical weapon will be better with rubies, since they gain close to 150-300 before ed%. Even skorn is better with rubies than emeralds. Bows are an exception of course, fk them with piddly 150-200 on the very best ones.

Didnt mean anything by it :)
I was looking for the post where adding the ruby to the skorn made a 30k unbuffed difference, thats pretty insane

So why don't u switch to Skorn, like I did?
It's also a LOT cheaper to Skorn than to dual-wield.
Ive got a decent one in the stash, 1400 300+str 300 dex 180 CD Want one with LS though:/ pricey.
