Diablo® III

Where is all the Attack on the Gear?

So, I poured over the gear a number of times, seeing what would and would not be a nice pickup for the various needs of a Barbarian. I learned a lot about what to and what NOT to expect from the gear.

The biggest issue I saw, was that there seemed to be a severe lack to the amount of the attribute "Attack" on the gear. Now, as best as I can determine, Attack is similar to Attack Rating from diablo 2, where you need X amount of it to increase your chance to hit mobs of Increasing levels by Y.

Obviously there is the Random Property aspect of gear to take into account... But should we be expecting to depend on these Random Properties to be increasing our attack?

The only saving grace to this issue, is that the Radiant Star Rubies grant a bonus of 100 attack each. However, it seems as if there are very few pieces of gear with sockets on them.

As you said, I think that Attack will be found frequently in the random properties. Remember that Attack is one of the four character stats, doing for all classes what Strength did for melee classes in D2. Thus we already see that many of the weapons have straight +% to damage modifiers, and I would expect to see Attack to show up frequently in places where we often saw stats on D2 items, such as on rings, gloves, shoulders, chest pieces, helms, etc.
