temptation gives 100-150% more ed then faith and faith has no ias as far as I can see(except from fana)... 66% deadly strike is pretty sweet aswell...
Maybe not worth a zod in eyes, I dont know....

It never is. Faith is only used on mercs or merc-bitch characters. No reason to waste a Zod, especially when Faith gives +20 res all, a better stat for pretty much any build that would use it.

Temptation should give higher res than faith and a higher level fanat(15 or so).

Faith is just going to be used on most builds. I'd actually like to see one of the two catered to either a 2h weapon for a2 mercs or a wand for summon necros.

The 150% ED difference is multiplied dramatically by dex values, ethereal dmg boost and skill %ED boosts.

Generally only people who don't understand dmg mechanics would choose temptation over faith if they had the runes to make both.

I dont get it, sounds like the 150% damage boost on temptation would be a huge difference to faith, but you say that ppl that dont get that would make temptation anyway for some reason.... did you just write them in the wrong order or what?!

Generally people choosing either are only interested in the fanat aura either way, therefor the damage is a null point.
