    Man,
    I am one lucky bastard. I got a collosus blade of swiftness right?
    So, I make a lvl1 "chip" mule and find a few chips, say 14 or so.
    I x-fer them to my barb, and BAM. Cruel collsosus blade, first try. 3 open sockets; 312% ed; got one ohm rune, a 39/15 jewel and a shael I am gonna socket in it. gonna be roxor. Oh yeah, without any runes or jewels in it, it does 412 damage. :D

    312% base? they can't be above 300% base i thought. what's the base? they always have 3 sockets when transmuting them.

    so how do you use these chipped gems to "reroll" an item? I've never done it but it sounds like some fun

    Nice! Aparently the odds of rolling a cruel are about 1/70. Only catch is, many sword types can never get cruel from the chipped recepie at all. I think www.diabloii.net has a list of which swords work somewhere.

    Btw Azrael - if I remember correctly, you'll need 40 total IAS to reach the last breakpoint for # of Wirlwind hits (base 5 minus 40 hits the -35 breakpoint exactly). Don't know if you even had a WW barb in mind, but if you do, it might be worth considering.

    Thanks Jakeman... make me look lazy will ya. :P

    BTW, in case it wasn't clear - only IAS on the weapon affects whirlwind (the speed affecting whirlwind thing is kinda buggy - doesn't work like any other melee attack).
