Chest armors - worth crafting?

I'm asking b/c I've got 4 IK pieces, and I'm considering to sub out one of them. Rather than splurge on a good IK chest, wondering if it's worth crafting something. Anyone have experience with this?

(Otherwise ideally would lose my belt but need the lifesteal for now)

Nice str and vit roll, but surprised about the sockets... for some reason I was assuming mandatory 3 sockets.

no, you can roll chest without any sockets.

Forget the shoulders. Look at dat ammy! drool. how many tries for that one?

your freaking damn lucky in crafting. how many have you done?

ammy was super lucky. got it in 160 tries.
total crafts is a lot. lost count.
i'm still trying to improve, but to get the ones i've rolled

chest 170 maybe? ammy 160, gloves 275, shoulders 175.

i've probably rolled over 500 more gloves since getting the ones i have now.
i stopped counting how many chest i've done, but i'm still trying to beat my current one.
i will probably go back to crafting vit shoulders to get a higher strenght roll after i get the chest i want.
then maybe do some more gloves.

I got my DH gloves literally craft #2. Craft #1 on DH for gloves was 9.5 cc, 30 CHD and 7 PUR.

Bracers were craft 20 on DH??

I just did 10 tries, ended up with the one in my profile, decent, but low on vit.

My monk bracers were my only lucky craft even though it's not that good :(.

About 35-50 crafts to get the chests I'm using.

Wanted to follow up on this idea.

Any mid-top barbs considering crafting chest armor as opposed to IK, BT, Tyrael's, etc?
