Been grinding Mauradon recently to get all the good mage items down there.

Got

http://www.thottbot.com/?i=38605 - Charstone Dirk

and

http://www.thottbot.com/?i=38555 - Inventor's Focal Sword

While the difference in +int is 5 in favour of the dirk I am unsure which to use as i know the +%chance to crit is worth alot of int by itself.

Am having trouble trying to decide so i ask you for you opinions

cheers

I picked up the sword a few days ago and I prefer it to the dagger. With mage armour up, I get 20 or 30 mana back while casting scorch, so an extra 2 mana on top of that it's amazing. 5 int isn't really much to shout about either, whereas the 1% spell crit is equal to 100 int.

One final thing to note: the drop rate on the sword is nearly double that on the dagger, so you're more likely to get it if you do a full boss run.
