Diablo® III

Crafted razorspikes question

Can they form with attack speed like lacunis? I asked this on the general chat and someone told me yes, but based upon the 30 or so I've made, I'm guessing no.

I'm saying no

This is true for all archon recipes: The only stat that is different from normal level 63 rares is the high Attribute.

no crafted rare can have affixes that a picked up rare can't have

Every item slot has stats that can roll in that item slot, and only Legendary items are allowed to break those rules. That’s part of what makes that item “Legendary.” In this particular case, crafted Razorspikes and other Rare quality bracers cannot form with attack speed, but the Lacuni Prowlers can because that’s part of what’s “Legendary’ about them; Lacuni Prowlers can break that specific rule.

A good rule of thumb is that if you see an affix roll on Rare quality items in a particular item slot, it can potentially roll on Rare quality crafted items of that same slot as well.

^then can you allow the AH search function to break that rule too, please? Pretty please?
It's crazy to try to look up some specific legendary with affix that breaks the rule. Please, please, please! HELP!

no. Thats what makes lacunis good. atk spd can't spawn on bracers. same thing with Mempo on head. Helmets can't get atk spd.

I'm more choked about the loss of movement speed :(

^That's not what I mean, men. :(

Some items are impossible to be searched. Not just legendaries.

For example, the raksdhaskdfasgha's blade... I could never spell his name right though.

Search them by name, should help narrow the choices.


don't search by name search by stats instead
for example: lacuni bracer
armor
item type:all armor item types
rarity: Legendary
stat 1 : attack speed 8
stat 2 : movement speed 12
stat 3 : critical chance

+1 for allowing us to search (or at least sort) for all possible affixes. There is such a glut of legendaries now that it's pretty hard to trawl through all of them.

As for legendaries getting affixes that aren't available for a particular slot, I'd rather see the legendaries have a higher potential stat range instead. eg: You can roll attack speed on a rare betweem 3-6% on a legendary for the same slot it can roll between 5-8%.

That way a good rare is better than a crap legendary. But a good legendary should always be best.

Awesome! Now how about trying to at least let people know wtf is up with the AH eating our gold and items...

Legendaries should have been about creative fun affixes/graphics like the low level Demon Machine or situational affixes like on the SoJ, not common affixes exclusive to item slot that make them defacto BiS. It negates too much the item hunt for rares and even other legendaries.

If you end up having defacto BiS legendaries like the Skorn, Deadman's Legacy, Vile Ward (pre 1.07), etc you should have just had a Legendary class of item that can roll from a wider range of affixes like rares. Would have been a heck of a lot more interesting. But I digress.

Stopping you right there. Please look up the general definition of "legendary". It doesn't mean "different from things like it". In fact, that sounds kind of discriminatory (lol).

A "Legendary" item should be one that makes you drool. "Legendary" items, as you and Blizzard call them, are 99% of the time salvaged for an item used to craft a rare item (irony?)

Now, you could call them "uniques", as you did in Diablo 2, but no, that doesn't work either. "Legendaries" aren't unique either, since each one (with the exception of maybe a couple) have properties that are randomly drawn. So, no, you can't call em "unique".

They're brown items. I wouldn't be so pissed about it if you just called them "brown".

And while we're on the subject, you might as well just increase the drop rate by another 500% or so. Nobody's gonna sweat over it. Maybe drop the price of brimstones, I don't think anybody's gonna care. And if you want, you can keep things like Mempo of Twilight and Witching Hour extremely rare drops, since those are the sought after ones that makes every other item in that slot worthless (really, two "trifecta" stats on a belt, which can't roll ANY? Bad design).

And, hey, it'll help to kill the auction house even more, which is your obvious ultimate goal anyway. Got me a pair of nice trifecta gloves I can't sell. Why? Because people want to craft them. Even though I haven't seen a pair yet during my crafts, it makes perfect sense for people to spend the money crafting instead, because they MIGHT get a good pair they want without spending 100 million on a piece that used to be worth that much. Now I can't sell my items to afford the OTHER slots that I need, like, oh, weapons, or...belts...or rings. Gonna just make EVERYTHING craftable by the end of it? How will that work with weapons?

You can't possibly tell me, as a rational human being, that this all makes sense. You just can't.

Oh, and Jesus. H. Patooty, this. And while you're at it, add the affixes you don't have on the search al-freaking-ready.

Point still stands. They're not "legendary".

Kupo, rares aren't actually 'rare', so there's nothing that says Legendaries need to be something mind-blowing within the game. The names are designations, and what they mean in terms of the item is determined by Blizzard. Only read the first paragraph though, so maybe you decided to talk about something else later on.

Do different affixes have different chances to roll? It seems some affixes are more common than others.

since those are the sought after ones that makes every other item in that slot worthless

This is why itemization is broken in my opinion. Anytime any single item can single handedly destroy and entire item slot then your itemization is broken.

In the case of Witching hour and Mempo there should be at a minimum of 3 other legendaries in those slots that are ilvl 63 and comparable on stats. And rares should be able to roll close those not as good IMO.
