Buri or Hellrack

Having found both Buri and Hellrack I'm wondering which one to use when making an amazon. Buri has super mods and large dam, but hellrack has 2 sockets and loads of elemental dam so it seems pretty even. The piecre mod on buri seems less important now that GA doesnt hit the same target more than once.

Does anybody have any experience comparing the two?

I've tried both on my crappy bowazon build from 1.09. They deal pretty similar damage, with the hellrack getting the edge with the extra elemental damage. The problem with hellrack is it is even slower than the buriza which is already too slow. You can dual shael the hellrack to get it to 60%IAS, but you can socket and shael the buriza for 100%IAS and then you don't need too much more IAS on your gear to get a decent firing rate. Factor in that the buriza freezes targets and has a nice dex bonus then it is the clear winner.

EDIT: Also the strength req on hellrack is just too much for a bowazon to be effective.

Buriza by miles, though get some IAS to hit the next breakpoint.

Hellrack is poo (that's a technical term for not very good). I've been known to fire a shot off, go and answer the phone, take a quick bath and read Lord of the Rings in between volleys. Then again, I'm also completed biased as I'm in the "We lub Buri" fan club.

To make it easier, you know you will be using the Buriza at level 41. An upgraded Buriza, if it is possible, seems to beat the crap out of the Hellrack based on the mods.

I haven't ever tried the Hellrack though.

I'm curious. What is the min and max damage of an upgraded buriza around level 75-85. Just give me an approximate guess =). I haven't seen it before and I just keep hearing people saying the damage is good. Thanks in advance.

Buri upgrades to Colossus Crossbow, and it's only negative aspect is it's str requirement (163 as i remember). If you can find str from other items, i highly recommend it.

form what i remember buri is the only unique you cant upgrade, it was considerd to be too powerful if upgraded so it was made exempt
Buriza can be upgraded. Blizzard said that before beta went out. Even in beta, Buriza could be upgraded.
Not to powerfull compared with other 1.10 items.
