I just recently got into rolling rares. I've never been a huge fan of using them but I have been rolling a eth xbow and wanted to get an opinion by someone who understands the mechanics.

First of all since every roll is random does that mean theoretically you have a 0.001% chance of getting 511% ed?

How have peoples success been rolling rares here btw?

I ended up getting a 511 but it had no ias and IAS/ED jewels are virtually non-existant on HC so back to rolling I go.

It probably took 700-800 rolls to hit 511 once.

I've lost motivation to keep rolling though... very tedious and boring.

Speed isn't important with whirlwind.

Doesn't speed increase the amount of hits during the WW?

Whirlwind doesn't have the insane amount of breakpoints that people assume it does a Zerker needs 34 ias.

what if you roll 0 ias, or 20 ias. you would need to socket with something with IAS, where as a PB u only need 19% ias.

id say if ur rolling something hundreds of time, it might be better to have a PB for .5 less average damage

I thought phase blade has no durability mods so it can't be eth. That's how it was in LOD atleast.

Nah Phase Blades have dura on here. Also I like how Zerker's look if I really wanted to go all the way sword I wouldn't use a Phase Blade I'd use a CB for the extra range.

last season i wasted A LOT of time and gold trying to roll an eth tmaul. i never got higher then like 400ed. this season i've wasted A LOT of time and gold trying to roll an eth zerker with no luck and now i'm trying to roll an eth tmaul. needless to say i'm looking for 450+ed and i've yet to even get over 400ed. i must have the worst luck because over the past couple seasons i've never been able to roll one of these things. its very irritating.
