What makes an item appealing to players to use, I think I'm getting the hang of it a little more being new to the diablo style games..
Stats over all else? When and how should I price items?
My best guess is similar stats of a primary stat and vitality with a socket or two or three.
Lets say I find a chest piece that's a 128 armor with 54 vitality and 3 socket pieces is this a valuable piece of gear?
Just curious.. thanks in advance.
I've actually made myself a list for knowing when to junk an item or not. This is all in my opinion and doesn't necessarily reflect the value of each attribute:
In order of preference, divided into category
X - X Damage
X - X Elemental Damage
% Bonus Damage
Intellect/Dexterity/Strength (based on class, generally not helpful in combination)
Critical Hit Chance
Critical Hit Damage
Bonus Life %
Life Regen / Second
Elemental Fire Resistance (For Mortars, Molten, Fire Chains, and Desecration)
Elemental Resist to All
Elemental Arcane & Poison Resistance (For Plague and Arcane Enchanted)
Elemental Resistance (All others)
Special: These are usually only useful if they are in with a combination of the above categories
Magic Find (Can be useful by itself in high amounts)
Life Steal % (Actual value of life steal % is yet to be determined as DPS has not stabilized)
Life Steal per Hit
Experience (if item level is under level 50, otherwise useless)
Chance to proc X effect (Bleed, Stun, Knockback, ect)
Level Requirement Reduction (Only high values, like >20, are useful)
Ignores Durability Loss (Since repairs are so cheap this is mostly useless)
Health Globes +X life (Mostly useless unless someone is making a special build)

As far as how to price your items just check the auction house for the same item with similar stats.
For example if you spawn a rare ring with:
14% Attack Speed
Then type in a search for a ring for at least 12% attack speed, at least 90 armor, and at least 80 vitality and see what comes up. I don't have access to the game at the moment but off the top of my head this item would be somewhere around the 250,000 - 300,000 gold range. (Attack speed is ridiculously good and armor is very rare stat for a ring)
The more you search the auction house the more you'll get used to whats common and whats not.
