Default 1hander aug?

I currently am using a Blood Draining Spike in my Skybreaker. (450 lifetap proc) As I have used AC augs in 1handers before, I figured since I use HDex as my primary heroic stat, would be better off having a lifetap proc in my 1h rather than the extra AC from Red Dragon Scales. I know a rune aug isn't the way to go as they don't stack and I don't have agro problems on a regular basis anyways. Just curious if one would benefit more from the AC, or the proc? Thanks

Depends what you wanna do. Inflating your E peen? then go ac.

I don't have any problem with agro either , yet I have a Rune + Damage aug in my one hander. Then again I do not raid anymore. For the most part on here they have been saying runic with a few here and there pushing the ac. Its almost like a fashion show heh. Id get a few more opinions or peruse some of the big boys Magelos to get an idea what they are using.

Take the complete opposite of what you stated there and you'd be correct. In every way, the rune aug is better. Better than AC. Better than a 450pt lifetap.

Energizing Attachment - 1150 rune, 8 dmg.... if you have 680 Pieces of Eight from TDS

That's what I use

May I ask why rune? They don't stack. Not that I don't agree, just curious

Test Server went down when I was doing some validation of my understandings.

Basically my many-year-old knowledge is:
* Hate is generated regardless of stacking.
* Multiple runes increases the times that a rune is up

Mitigating damage taken is always better than healing after the fact.

They don't stack but the times you will have one up and proc another are few & far between. Having two gives you more chances to have a rune up, thereby reducing damage more often.

Yep, rune all the way. Not to mention the best rune aug is also +8 dmg, which is more leech HP returned when running epic/mc/LC, as well as a very marginal increase to innate leeched HP from our 1% Dark Absorption.
