1. Why does the guide say not to mix ED and EWD MOs on weapon? I see a few TU/SU weps that have both stats so why is it harmfuil for this build?

2. Which would be better, Starkiller(4) or Aether in a Sacred Stinger xbow? And what sort of jewels to craft for the rw - leech ones or ED?
I'm getting really bad rolls on the rare Stingers I'm trying to craft - worse than the TU4 version - so I'm looking for something that will give a bit better damage until I find a sacred xbow.

3. Which are the best Cycles to put on the wormhole charm? Same question for the umbaru one.



Are you playing on TSW? If so, I might have a couple sacred stingers on a mule, I dont need them. It’s funny that when I NEEDED a sacred stinger to craft I would hardly ever have any drop but now that I upgraded to Hwains(sp?) I see 5 drop per game. Another decent option is Kronos(Taha rw) if u can get your hands on a taha rune. I know it isnt the best but it will kill stuff.

Appreciate the thought, but I'm playing SP. I have a couple of rare stingers I've been crafting but the results are rubbish. Also have fa couple of blue ones I could use for runewords if they are worthwhile.

Do you use D2 stats for at all? I did notice that when I started usimg that and added a line to notify me of sacred stingers that I found a whole bunch of them. Otherwise, Im sure I missed a bunch before using that. But im sure u could farm k3k enough amd good enough even with the TU4 stinger until you get one. Heck, even if you’d find a sacred dart thrower or any sacred xbow and craft that- that could probably outmatch the TU bow for now too.

I think it's because you already have lots of EWD from STR that it's not worth MOing EWD anymore. Please correct me if I'm wrong

Non-Xis Aether? 6xJah 200 ED Starkiller will outdamage it easily (290 ED in total + 300 cold damage). You get ITD but it's easy to get AR + TU4 Light Gauntlets.

Anyone know if Zakarums set can drop in K3k? I looked through all my mules and I have at least a few pieces of every set(lots of them) and probably whole sets but im not very organized on my muling. But... I have not seen a single piece of this set. I could always trade and get ‘em but im just wondering if any of the set actually drops there.. in K3k.

Yes I have the notifier set to show stingers. So far I only found 3 blue, 2 rare. Perhaps it's RNG. ;-|

I mean don't get them mixed up in your mind. It's fine to have both, no downsides to that, but ED% is very important while EWD% is not.

Prolly Starkiller but you can very easily (shouldn't take more than 1 or 2 shrines) craft a stinger better than either or use another runeword like
Tartarus
Tartarus
Crossbows

'Yul'
Runeword Level: 100
5% Chance to cast level 42 Singularity on Kill
-10% Attack Speed
+(172 to 200)% Enhanced Damage
+(1 per level) to Maximum Damage (Based on Character Level)
+10% to Summoned Minion Damage
(41 to 50)% to Strength
Lightning Resist +100%
Fire Resist +100%
+(101 to 150) Life after each Kill
instead.

Strength or MF on Corrupted Wormhole. Umbraru treasure you can't affect (every cubed essence gives +3 to -5 of each stat)

And what does it mean that there's a cap at 200%ed?
Does it mean I dont need more than 200%ed on my weapon?
