    If i put a socket in shaftstop what would be the best rune/jewel?
    I though of a Um for resist, but only got one so dont want to waste it.
    i'll prob put Shaft on my JavZon.
    Her equipment now is Tals mask, Lidless w/ per diamond, Mara's ammy, 189% titans, Silkweaves, rare gloves w/ +2 to jav skills, rare rings with some resist and Thundergods. i may put my ravenfrost on her, since I dont use rhyme shield anymore (i hate being frozen).

    :D hehe, like i'll ever find one of those ;) IAS would be nice, but doesn't enhance dam not work so well on armors? It kinda reeks that you can't socket throwing weapons, that would be nice. 40%/15 in titans, weeee.

    oh i wonder how much it would cost to get a lycander flank. wouldn't mind having it as a back-up weapon for her, as killing bosses is a pain with fury or plague jav. Or would another spear type weapon be better?

    ED works fine in armor, that's the cool thing about jewels. you can put %Ed jewels in all your stuff and your weapon will add up all of it.

    Well what are some of the best jewels that you currently have?

    Man, I need a shaftstop. They are so nice for Ancients and Duriel.

    Shaftstops aren't very pricey, you have piles of uber stuff Spike, you could probably trade for one in a pinch.

    If I wanted to trade Shaftstop, would it be safest just to trade for sojs? One guy offered 5 sojs, but wasn't sure I wanted to trade. and I'm tired of getting the bait and switch (they offer one thing and show me something else, or try to tell me my item isn't good)

    It's 187%, which isn't perfect, but it's legit and it's a shaftstop. I dont understand why everyone is obsessed with getting perfect %, aren't those the ones that are most likely dupes? And I'm just happy to get the item, I mean, isn't a lower % Shaft better than no shaft? :D

    I'm gonna try Shaft on my Zon, but I do have Glad Bane, which I quite like.

    rules of trading:

    -don't trade for sojs
    -don't trade if they have to leave the game and come back
    -don't trade if there is another idle person in the game that doesn't talk. always ask that 3rd person to say hi. if they say something it's ok.
    -always have them pick up and move the item around the trade screen before trading.
    -if you are unsure of the value of something tell the person to wait and go consult with the trading channels. if they don't want to wait then don't trade.
    -don't trade if they start preaching value or try to rush the deal (that means they are trying to rip you off):
    come on! this item is uber! or you could easily trade this item back for a shaftstop. or i'm really in a hurry or you're getting a really good deal!

    I'll agree with Jake on every single point except the one about them leaving the game. I frequently switch mules while trading, additionally Jake goes on to say he would leave and consult the trade channels, I think we owe others the benefit of the doubt the way we ask for it. As long as you follow those other tips (especially the one about having them move the items around, to prevent trade-buffer spoofing), you can be certain of a legit trade.

    I went ahead an traded it for an un-id'd Lycander Aim, I prob could have gotten more for it, but it was only 187% and I really wanted that bow. So I guess it was a fair trade, since both parties ended up happy :D
    Lycander turned out to be like 179%, so not bad, i'm just happy to have one. I had a buriza and swapped it with a friend for oc, but even with massive ais, buriza seemed slow to me.

    Sorry to hear that. Dupes disappearing should not have been a surprise.

    Caveat emptor.

    Then dump the dupes and put on items that you have found.

    do they only spot those items you use or all of them? cause they really should delete your stuffs when you're not logged on your account.
