Diablo® III

Worth crafting weapons in 1.04?

Been wanting to get into the crafting game for some time, but recipes seemed very expensive for 6 prop armors. Do you guys think weapons will be viable for crafting now?

nope. not gonna be possible to roll lvl 63 affixes, only 63 base damage.

edit: altho you might be able to drop a bunch of nice 2hs on the ah before the supply of natural drops catches up

No. Your chances of rolling even remotely good damage is still as minescule and pathetic as it ever was.

That and the stat rolls on 61 and 62 still suck.

All based on luck, so you're still better off farming for weapons rather than crafting them.

Except perhaps the legendary items!

yeah what do you guys think of the ilvl 61 legendary craftables (i.e. ruinstoke, venomhusk)

Crafting weapons sucks because you HAVE to hit 4 affixes, maybe 5 (2 of +dmg, elemental dmg or, +min and max dmg, a socket, either LoH or Crit dmg (or both), and usually want main stat), to make it even close to viable before you even factor in how high you roll on those affixes. However, when you do hit its worth a lot, especially since 90% of this game revolves around your weapon.

I still don't think its worth it unless you have enough of a bank account to take into account !@#$ty luck...

Legendary weapons should be much more viable to craft since they said they will always roll +dmg stats i think?

Well, considering we haven't even seen them yet, I'm still holding out hope they did *something* to make 6-prop ilvl62 weapons worth crafting, like armor currently is.

Perhaps I'll pick up a 2H recipe and give it a go.

That's what I'd hoped as well.
