by socketting more spell pen by ditching the wand you basicly lose spell dmg as you need to have either in blue sockets some 25spell pen or the big one from JC or get in red slots sp-spell pen wich both results into trading SP into the stats of your wand.

It's a haste vs sp argument; that is to say it isn't just a "you lose sp by gemming this way rather than that way".

As i said "Both results into trading SP into the stats of your wand"
yes I mentioned losing spell dmg but didnt mean that you would throw it away.

Anyway, how do people feel about actually getting some crit?

I'm definitely gemming for 130 spellpen as a tailor. Resisting 4 fears in a row into a spelllock resist is so fucking gay, not even exaggerating.

Ive tested above hit special race cap and notice no difference from RNG from 7% to 4.88% hit. So I'm assuming that just because u would perfer capping Spell Pen putting your JC gems to use like that or hurting ur haste/crit from OH/Wand might not be the wisest choice.

Just my two cents

Edit: only going with OH and Cloak Enchant with the wand being an extra after i buy all my other stuff first with my arena points.

Decisions, decisions. I'm really tempted to pick up the haste wand, but I'm not sure if its worth losing the 39 sp for the 34 haste or w/e it is.

I chose sp - but on the other hand, I play with black magic.
in the end, I'll try to get my hands on a DFO -> enough haste ;)

Why do so many locks use +25 pen gems, while having some red slots with 23 spell power. If you swap 1 pure penetration and 1 pure spell power with 2x 12/13 you net 1 power and 1 pen each time you do it.
