Best rolled BoA will outclass the best rolled VW, however, VW's have gone down in price and you can get an excellent one just incase the the RNG gods piss on your parade.
Also AR, Armor and LpS accompanied by DPS stats are hard to come by via BoA....need a godly roll.

I've been using Vile Wards since the beginning because they were/are the best.
52 Poison Resist
Last night I decided to start crafting again to see what I could roll. On my third pair (yeah third!! Very lucky!) I rolled:
Stock 353 Armor
48 Poison Resist
58 Int (net 5 AR)
Although I lost a bit of armor, I gained about 7K dmg via Dex, everything else remaining about the same. I'd definitely recommend crafting pieces... even if you spend millions on a good pair, it's going to be way cheaper than buying it on the AH and you'll get more for your $$.
uhm.. for Monks,
i believed +life is relatively a better choice than +armor. (correct me if im wrong, im not that experienced with monk)
so crafted a shoulder with that aim in mind,
and got what im wearing:
Armor : 353 (base)
+54 Poison resist
+64 All Resist
well, since we have Seize the initative Passive, armor can be buffed from there. so get +life..
Frak me, those are very nice BoA shoulders...8th roll congrats, I've rolled close to 150 with no such luck...
Buy a decent pair of Vile Wards, and use your DE to craft better gloves, bracers, and ammy first.
Then after you have some wild !@# gloves, bracers, and ammy start working on getting a better set of shoulders...
The cost of a good set of vile wards is peanuts compared to a good set of those other 3.
Like it will probably take 100 shoulder rolls to get a set that's definitely better than a 30m set of vile wards, while in 100 rolls you can probably get an amulet that is better than a 300m gold amulet.
So again, buy the viles and spend your DE's elsewhere until you get badass gloves/amulet/bracers before replacing the wards.
Crafted ones are only better if you don't value the high life regen on the vile wards. Regen can be very strong in pvp if stacked with high res/armor. Then that would free up an attribute for life% or single res stack. Also would take an insane roll to beat the best viles, as crafted shoulders can roll u to 330 dex.
