Hey guys, I have a lvl 79 IK Barb that does some pretty mean damage. As you know the IK helm has two sockets, and the IK maul has two sockets. What would be the ideal things to put in them? (gems, jewels, runes?)

I was thinking about putting two ohm runes in the IK maul, but haven't even thought about what I could put in the helm. My resists are really good in hell, with them all being at least 65.

Keep in mind, I'm rich, and can put pretty much any rune in the sockets, or trade my runes for pretty much any jewel. So let me have it... tell me what you think I should put there!

humm, i know Ik barbs aren't easy to kill ( i got one with p set) but if ur dueling or doing lots of runs and ready to sacrifice your life for the thrill of the kill i would suggest a fire or poison "die" facet in your helm incase there to many monster to retrieve your body...

Maybe a P Skull for the mana/life comeback.

personnally i haven't gotten around to putting some stuff in the sockets.

ik seems good stat wise... but if you duel ANYTHING ranged you will lose and most non-ranged chars have the same effect. Its pretty much gets raped by everything, Get a non-set most sets are effective at alllllllll, and then put all your ohms/ whatever into that.


Yes, thats what a nef does.

I wouldn't put OHM's in IK maul at all....I'd put Shael/Amn or Shael/Shael , and as for the helm I'd put shael as well and a 15%IAS jewel + mods

Guess I should have put in my first post that I don't duel... I think it's stupid.

I'm strictly PvM, which is fine by me. Maybe after I build every possible build on every character I might duel. :)

BUT, that is a completely different subject... Let's stick to the topic. I am a PvM IK barb wanting to be as bad ass as possible with whatever there is out there. Knowing that, what would you put in the sockets?

I did the math. IK maul max damage is 320, and that is 200ED. With 300ED (2 ohm runes) the maul would do 480 physical on top of the fire, lgihtning, cold, poison and magic... If anything, IK set is the PERFECT thing to use PvM (except act 4... that iron maiden is a bitch). It does every kind of damage! If you come against a monster with dual immunities, you can be rest assured knowing that you can STILL take it out, no matter WHAT the immunities are! That's what I love about the IK set. I only have a few points in mace mastery right now ( I messed up at the beginning of the build), but when he has full mace mastery and all of the synergies, his concentration damage will be well over 7.5K...

Leech-wise, remember, I'm wearing two bul Kathos rings, perfect at 5% each, plus the full IK set which equals 20% life leech. I think I'm ok with the leeching. :) (20% of 7.5K=1500...)

(This next question seems kind of noob-ish for me, but...) If you put a 40/15 jewel in the helm, will I still get more enhanced damage and faster attack speed on my weapon? I'm having a brain fart and can't remember. If that is the case, I'll put two ohm runes in the mail, and two 40/15's in my helm...

Does Berzerk really do that much more damage then concentrate fully synergized? I like concentrate because I dont get hit very often, and I find I actually leech a lot more by using concentrate vice WW.

As far as what to socket, I think I've made up my mind. I'm going with 2 ohms in my IK maul, and I'm going to try to get 2 40/15's to socket in the helm... that should make my damage pretty good, don't you think?

And yes, I am rich, but that is only due to good trading... I will never make a trade in which I feel like I'm getting ripped off. If anything, I'll rip other people off. It's all about supply and demand in Diablo that makes something valuable. If someone wants an SOJ, can't find them anywhere, and I have 3, that person will probably give me well more then it is worth to get the SOJ. In turn, I can sell the stuff that I make from him for more then I could get for just one SOJ regularly. Get it? Smart trading, that's all it is...

here is my view, 320 damage really fast? or 480 damage not so fast, save your ohms, put some sheals in the maul. it sounds like your tearing it up already pvm some in the helm you could even put some topazs, if mfing isn't you thing then slap some bitchen jewels with high ed% and other mods up in there, or if you wanna be really cool maybe 2 ber runes which will give you 16% reduced damage just remeber speed kills, if you swinging concentration really fast you'll own in pvm. good luck

i think that you should put one perfect emerald and zod rune in the club (if not already indstr)if it is indestructible then i suggest a diamond is you are a long way in the game, for the helmet i suggest fire resistances coz u know if youre gonna charge for diablo (or baal) it is PRETTY good to have them by the way try to get +damage to demons (im a cheater so i got 2037% to demons muhahahahaaaaa :badgrin: )but try gettin sum anyway love ya bye

i have to agree with thumper: speed>dmg in pvm

also frosties i dont think u know what you are talking about:
diamond in maul??
not indestructible? ik maul is indestructible by default
fire resists in helm?? u have high enuff fire resist with the set
