Kridershot reroll question

Demon Hunter
Finally got a kridershot drop and dont know what to reroll on it. Should i reroll the base damage to something higher or roll off the socket for attack speed and then resocket it with a gift?

2,447.1
1055-1285 cold damage
6% damage
644 dex

socket
always roll off socket no exceptions.
Rolling the socket would give you either attack speed or resource or cooldown. If you reroll the damage range of the weapon and not gift the weapon, you could have a lot more damage, something around 2600-2700 (your max top-end of 1285 is pretty bad when it can roll up to 1490). The answer is dependent on what you value the most. Currently, attack speed on bows is worthless, might change in future. So gifting the bow will only give you either CDR, Resource cost reduction, or attack speed, at the expense of raw damage.
In 2.1.2 where you will be 50-60% dps, you'll want AS on your bow. So don't discount it.
That being said, yes always reroll the socket if you have a RGift.

Not in this case where the damage roll is SO low, there's a lot to gain from rolling it higher (~350 base damage plus 6%.)
