Is upgrading unique items really worth the rune commitment? I am just curious if there actually an item you would want to have as an elite version of the base item.

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.

Titan's, Witchwild and a few others get upgrades for me. I upp a Kelpies for my merc, I think it's mostly merc items that get upgraded.

But Titan's and Witchwild always get upgraded for me.

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.

Why a titan's?!?!?! The damage comes from +skills not the physical damage. It also adds another 41 dex to the requirements, so it is not really worth it.

Haven't heard of people using bows outside of windforce or BOTD, unless lack the ability to buy one.

I ended up doing that one I found after watching a MrLlamaSC video. makes a lot of sense to do it.
