The word your looking for is vitality not stam. In HC having a 300+ vit piece of gear can mean you live longer. Or it can be better than most legendarys in that slot like shoulders. You can absolutely roll something better than a vile ward and it would cost you way less than 6 million for the crappiest vile ward that was available pre 1.07.
Or for the "I'm too broke" group that gripes that all the time, they would be able to get something within reason when they hit their first million gold at lvl 60, regardless of the base stat gear they craft.
