    Which ring is hotter?

    Dex 8
    EP 25
    HCI 15
    DCI 15
    SSI 10

    or

    Dex 8
    EP 25
    HCI 15
    DI 25
    SSI 10

    Sorry. I know peeps enjoy more controversial threads, but I'll let Dan set those up! I've been sitting on a dex/ssi 10 ring for 2 months, and can't decide which way to imbue it in case I ever sell it in the future when I eventually (undoubtedly) scrap my suit.

    I say DCI all the way. Dmg output isn't as important I don't think as the DCI, and +25 dmg will give you 1 or 2 more dmg tops. DCI helps way more, imo. Both nice rings though

    I'd also go with the DCI.

    Unless you can make up DCI elsewhere, go with DCI. The difference affects RNG calculation if you're not capped.

    Dex 8 = 110
    EP 25 = 100
    HCI 15 = 130
    DCI 15 = 110
    DI 25 = 100
    SSI 10 = ?

    What is the weight of SSI 10? Dex + EP + HCI = 340. If you go with 110 DCI, the SSI has to be 50 or less. If you go with the DI of 25 the SSI has to be 60 or less.

    Gorbs the ssi 10 is only 36 points.

    It seems the general consensus is what I was originally leaning towards anyway. DCI is more sexy. Thank you all!

    Now back to our regularly scheduled poll by Dan.

    I'd rather be trolling Dan's threads but the DCI is sexy all the way.

    While DCI is the better mod overall, I'd say DI is a bit harder to obtain depending on what items you use. I mean, you could get 15 DCI off a combination of your robe, quiver/cloak, and sash (conjurer's garb, quiver of infinity, corgul's enchanted sash). Then again I'm not really sure how many people use the QOI anymore since there are now better options other than just 5 DCI. But for DI, assuming you get 40-50 on wep and 20 on talisman, jewels are the easiest way to get to or close to the 100 cap. Otherwise you'd have to sacrifice your helm HLD or get some nice heartwood or re-forge rolls, no?

    As a stand-alone item, I think the DCI probably compliments the EP the most. Would the DI be better against pixies, though? jk ;)

    I personally would go with this:

    15 HCI
    15 DCI
    8 DEX
    25 DI
    10 SSI

    I am sure you want EP for PvP action, but this is what I would do with it for my common uses. Any way you go, it is a beauty of a jewel!
