Gorging the forge (Achievement)

I am currently trying to complete the achievement "Gorging the forge" and I am looking for some information.

I need to craft things with "Chance to block" and "critical hit damage".
I am assuming the chance to block can only appear on a shield, but is there a level restriction, or a certain type I should be creating to try to get this?
I'm not sure what to craft for the critical hit damage, does it appear on weapons?

Is there any sort of affix guide out there for blacksmith crafting?

I have been looking into this also since I only need critical hit damage.

I used D3DB.com to see what affixes can appear on things, I'm guessing it is very accurate since the site pulls data directly from the game.

There doesn't seem to be a level restriction based on D3DB.com.

I got my critical hit damage from a weapon, 1h mace iirc.

The question is though, what level was it?

Also, from looking at the AH and the affix search engine, it looks like critical hit damage can only roll on certain pieces of armor (in addition to weapons of course).

I'm not sure if that means they can't be crafted with it just because they don't normally drop with it, but I would assume that is the case.

With that said, I would stick to WEAPONS and GLOVES. The gloves with crit damage were a minimum of lvl 27 I believe, I haven't seen that affix on lower level gloves. The weapons went as low as lvl 11, so that means it can roll on pretty much any weapon, although certain affixes have a higher chance of rolling on higher level items, so choose a nice middle weapon to farm-craft.

Just an update, the lowest shield, Apprentice Heater shield got me the chance to block.

After searching the AH for increased crit damage I found similar to Glowryn, it appears on weapons, rings, amulet and gloves (the same as most IAS). Gloves starting from nightmare, I got the update making Grand Master Etched Gloves.

Excellent!

I actually just got my Gorging the Forge a few minutes ago myself. After seeing your post about the Grand Master Etched Gloves, along with our combined confirmation of the affix on gloves of a certain level only, I felt confident in blowing about 50k on trying to make a bunch.

Thing is, I didn't have the lower level mats to make those specific lvl 37 gloves, but I had enough to make 10x Magnificent Boneweave Gauntlets which are lvl 51 (and cost a bit more to make gold-wise). Well, it only took those 10 to get the +critical damage affix (got it on my last one!).

Thanks for the post, it helped get me on the right track for this achievement (and I DO love my achievements).

I only need crit damage and chance to block but when I crafted items with that stat on it, it didn't give me credit.

Confirmed today, 6/15 -- I crafted Chance to Block on the lowest level shield, Apprentice Heater Shield, and the Critical Hit Damage on the highest normal-mode 1hand axe, Master Soldier Axe.

So both can appear on crafted items using only Subtle Essence.

This definitely works. Finally had a stroke of luck got the achievement on the first pair of these I made.

Does the chance to block need to appear as a magical properties (blue font) or appearing in white font will do. If it is in white font, then any shield will do right..

I crafted like 6 shields, all with chance to block (white font) yet no achivement

Thanks

Needs to be in blue.
I just kept on crafting Apprentice heater shield, and suddenly I got the achievement.
The shield was +1% chance to block in BLUE.
