Bummer!!!!! But you got him, so close!
What did you decide, shield or Triumvirate? What was your downfall?
Disregard my previous question:
You know what they say. When it comes to Wizards, 7th time's a charm... I hope...
Ran with TexaStranger with my DH last night in Inf Act 2.
One of the best player to run with :) He is willing to wait around while I salvage/sell every blue item (I need the money!). Also doesn't complain even though I vault around like a moron.
I see your point in wanting to go for max stat option, but realistically you won't come close to max stats on crafts... it's just too hard to find enough gold to be able to invest the millions you will need to get the perfect craft. That's why my logic has been to have several 60s and craft vit items since in almost all cases they roll dex, int, or str in addition to the default 200+ vit. If I were you, I wouldn't put much importance on sockets either because, again, it will take forever to make enough gold to fill those sockets with high tier gems. Take a look at my Barb - she got a 2 socket chest piece but it had only 33 strength (and that was the only 2 socket I've found in probably 10 or so crafts). I'm much happier with the chest pieces on my DH and WD, neither of which have sockets. When I craft, I'm hoping for a decent main stat roll and high all resist, with armor, sockets, life regen, etc a bonus. I've had reasonable success with that expectation.
In terms of farming plans, I suggest either doing quick Skelly King runs or quick Ghom runs. On skelly runs, clear crypts until you get at least four stacks then port to cathedral 3 (you will find at least one elite in cathedral 4). On Ghom, you can sometimes get 5 stacks by just doing Keeps 2 and 3, but you run the risk of having unfortunate encounters with maniacs. Remember, Warden and Butcher don't drop plans... just Skelly and Queen in Act 1, and Queen is just too inefficient given the long walk from Worthom and the maze in the spider lair.
Where does everyone like to farm for the plans?
I've been doing MP0 Act1 run
Get 5 stack -> Skeleton King -> Spider Queen -> Warden -> Butcher.
