Hoz is the only thing that I've seen regularly upgraded to elite version. Mainly because palis are regularly surrounded by enemies and teleporting so defense actually works for them vs most builds it doesn't, due to defense to 0 while running stupidity.
I think upgraded ribcracker deserves two posts lol. Mine does 308-461 damage, 70% IAS (with a shael rune added), 50% FHR, 50% CB, 100% defense. Only downside is it is a two-handed staff, but it does more damage than most unique weapons, easier to find, and it gets the bonus of mace mastery if you use it on a barbarian.
