Diablo® III

The Self Craft DH.

Well, there are Self-Founds, so there might as well be Self-Crafts too.

What's the point of this?
Well same point as playing d3, to have fun. It's just another way of getting out of the godly gear rat race and also just that I really like crafting.

I've been looking through the gameguide to see what kind of crafts would possibly yield the best combination. Overall, the possible builds seem to be rather tanky, mostly providing vit, life regen, life steal and all resist bonuses but little in the way of damage.

Starting with weapons, well we sure are spoiled for choice here, aren't we?

So it's either of those and a Black Bone Arrows.

For jewellery, well there's the Archon Amulet, and..... nothing else.
I don't want to use the hellfire ring so this is the only slot where I'll use regular items, SF, AH, whatever.

Armour, this part is a bit more interesting. Obviously I'd like to go All Archon but there do seem to be a few interesting set items that can be crafted.

Currently I'm leaning towards Archon gloves, bracers and chest.
Asheara's shoulders, boots and pants.
Guardian's helm and belt.

Helm.
For the time being, the only viables I see are these.
Helm of Command

For weapons what about:

I've seen a few doomcasters in the AH with godly stats (beating most Manticores).

Oh, do they go up that high?
I thought those numbers there were their limit. I'll have to give those a shot too. Thanks!
