Demonic Essence - What are you doing with em?

I am curious as to what everyone is doing with their DE's, hoarding or crafting?

Is there is a reason to save up a bunch for the next patch? Think there will be new recipes that require them?

I rolled a WD the other month, so now I have twice the opportunity to use good INT crafts. Just saved up 200 so I think I will fire off another 100 ammy's and gloves.

Wow. That is a hoard all right.

Hopefully they will introduce some sick weapon recipes that require them since weapons are currently ridiculously hard to roll decent stats.

I am hoarding back up at this point. I got a decent pair of gloves for my WD in that they rolled 10/50 with 7 yards PUR, but missing AR and vitality or armor but that took the better part of a weekend and nearly 600 attempts.

I am going to get back to 1,000 DE's again and go for the gloves on my Wiz. Wonder what the chances are to get a good quinfecta? Would love for something like this:

300 Int
100 Vit (standard Int roll plus Int/Vit roll)
10 CC
40 CD
8 AS (at least, might even take 7 if everything else was right)
70 AR (at least)

That's not asking for much is it? I like having PUR so much, I would be willing to give the Int/Vit roll for it. I miss having it so much. A lot of the gloves I looked at have such low armor, and I really don't want to go below 4,000, so that is a problem as well. I sure as hell aint going to find something while farming, so this is my best chance I guess.

I turn everything into (in order of most often crafted item):
gloves of int
ammy of int
bracer of int
shoulder of int
ammy of dex
gloves of dex
ammy of vit

once i get to ~200 or so i need to burn, usually sooner

Gave up on crafting stuff for wiz, currently crafting stuff for tr monk. Once I'm satisfied with its rolls, I'll probably just start hoarding them in case they add more crafting options.

I craft, and weep, and farm DEs again, and repeat.

If only I could combine two items...

I craft shoulders and amulets b/c I feel I am most likely to get an upgrade from those slots than from gloves. ~600 crafts so far for this wiz, not 1 single crafted item that can beat an item I bought for 200m :(

100 essences a day to craft int gloves. About 1500-2000 so far I think.

Crafting is so expensive. Hard to watch allot of gold just disappear. I have about 5b in gold but watching 200m go poof in crafting really hurts.

I'm building a giant castle out of them and waiting for crafting to be revised.
