Diablo® III

Vita Shoulder rolls are killing me.

Frustrated! Just rolled two more, in a row, that had close to max vita, max AR, but the usual 140-180str. How many hundreds, if not thousands of DE's must I waste!

/end rant.

I felt the same way and just kept a pair like that for a long time.

They were something like 180str, 300+vit, and 60+AR. I started finally rolling more a little over a month ago or so and got my current ones, which was refreshing.

I also had a pair roll in the same batch with 226str, 283vit, and 12% life, but no AR. Pretty brutal. I kept them in case I pickup some extra strength somewhere and in case I roll AR somewhere else and don't need it on shoulders, because they give me over 7k HP over my current ones. Honestly though, I probably wouldn't be satisfied and will just roll until I get all the rolls on one set, haha. I have a lot of crafted gear for different characters that is "almost there, but not quite". I can't help it.

Yeah, same here. Hording up to 3 each it seems, high dps, high vita, or whatever the build will allow. Yep, going to keep at it myself until I see 3 green stats when I mouse-over haha

Oh man, you got a sweet roll with those, and phy resist. Gratz

And the most important stat of all, 17% MF. Weeee! :)

Yeah, just keep rolling them; eventually it will happen. I don't know how many I had rolled prior to getting my current ones. I know it wasn't hundreds though, thankfully.

And pick up range to boot. Just like my bracers, will never try to beat them. Very nice Maskoaa.

Strength Amulets are what I am having problems getting a decent roll on. I am pretty happy with my Shoulders and Bracers though. But I can still do a bit better. If I could get a roll on bracers like I have now but with 6CC and Shoulders like I have but with close to 300 Strength I probably would stop crafting them for a while.

I just hate it when you roll something that would be Godly as Hell if you could have just gotten the other couple great stats. But if you do hit a great roll it sure can make the whole thing worth while , that's for sure !

But it's not supposed to be easy, if it was it would take the excitement out of it when we do hit a good roll. But it's been long enough now already , Give Me My Ammy Roll Damnit !!! LOL

Rolled mine in about 20 crafts. Really the only true luck I've had in this game.

They look very good to me and honestly I don't see you decisively beating them. I think its mostly a futile endeavor to attempt to go after very specific stats with crafting, unless you're ready to use tens of thousands of DE's (because mere thousands won't be enough). Your best case scenario is maybe rolling 50 more str, and probably not getting anywhere near as much vit/life %.

Rather, make other choices that make using those make sense. They give you an insane amount of HP, so take advantage of that and replace the vit on your ring for damage-oriented affix. On the flip side, if you crafted str shoulders like MASKOAA's, it'd wreak havoc on your current gear, unless you were willing to give up tons of vit.

As it is, the high EHP on your shoulders is facilitating you forgoing on it on such slots as your pants, chest and boots. You have to look at your gear as a whole without getting fixated on one slot.

Good stuff Silver. I've got multiple replacements for almost every slot for her so lots of flexibility here ;) Just chasing that epic roll so I can rid myself of a few for more inventory space lol. Only reason I'm wearing these is to make up for the ruby that I just threw into my mempo.

Man I'd love a nice pair of vit rolled shoulders, I've been on a rough patch. I think I used all my good luck on my ammy :S

Yep, all mine was used up with barb bracers and my mage ammy. Odds will change the more we try, right? :D

after getting the pair on my monk I gave up, I have another pair with 319 vit but with 79 ar & no +armor but I stopped, got depressed =(

I hear ya henry but I can't let go of those additional 230 stat points that i'm missing out on! Should probably work on my gloves and ammy for a while but they're both going to be tough to beat to. All in all, I've had fairly good luck with crafting on all my characters. Way to many possibilities with the Vita rolls though, which makes it tough.

My "Bloodyzbub" barb is wearing the 2nd best shoulders whereas "Hozerker" has the best pair I've rolled....I can't complain.
