New Craft value

Wizard
The values for several of the fixed core stats have been increased:

Archon Spaulders:

Dexterity, Intellect, and Vitality can now roll 201-230 in their respective stat (up from 100-115)
Strength could already roll in this range, and so remains unchanged


Archon Gauntlets:

Strength and Vitality can now roll 201-230 in their respective stat (up from 100-115)
Dexterity and Intellect could already roll in this range, and so remained unchanged


Archon Armor:

Strength, Dexerity, and Intellect can now roll 201-230 in their respective stat (up from 101-115)


Razorspikes:

Strength, Dexeterity, Intellect, and Vitality can now roll 201-230 in their respective stat (up from 101-115)


Love this
Demonic Essence drop rate was hammered. HATE THIS

•However, each level of Monster Power will increase the drop chance of Demonic Essence from Elites and bosses according to the following values:

MP...........OLD.........NEW...

•MP 0: 20.0000% 15.0000%
•MP 1: 23.0000% 16.5000%
•MP 2: 26.4500% 18.1500%
•MP 3: 30.4175% 19.9650%
•MP 4: 34.9801% 21.9615%
•MP 5: 40.2271% 24.1577%
•MP 6: 46.2612% 26.5734%
•MP 7: 53.2004% 29.2308%
•MP 8: 61.1805% 32.1538%
•MP 9: 70.3575% 35.3692%
•MP 10: 80.9112% 38.9061%
So Aph, would you argue it's better to farm for essence on MP0? Before it seemed less clear, but now it seems pretty simple. 15% @ MP0 vs. only 38% @ MP10. Seems that the increase in kill duration far outweighs the increase in drop rate now

Also, are crafted items of this sort still account-bound?
Yep all still account bound, and yes MP10 is not the best place for me anymore to farm Demonic Essences. Now I'll probably do MP7/8 for speed runs..

Glad to see Blizzard being constructive.
So I think it's now worth crafting. Especially Shoulders, a lucky roll can beat the life regen on VW easily.

BoA items. 200+ Intel Bracers, now it's worth crafting because I don't need that double int/vit roll to be good. Just need to roll Armor, CC, and AR. Very decent chance. Still very good, BoA doesn't matter.
BoA means you cant sell your not so perfect ones if you end up rolling better later.
The new razorspikes are awesome, the min of the primary stat roll is already higher than the max I can get from rares, so all I need is 2-3 other good rolls for it be exceptional.

I'm now happy that I can have beastly Bracers. I'm not so demanding, it actually gives me smth to do, if it's sellable I will just play AH 3, no need to craft anymore, someone will do it. Don't know why you are so hard to be satisfied really.

wow i know eh. they are brilliant No wonder they won best game of the year... or did they?
I like the change. Useful crafting will add a fun element to the game.
Need to buy an account with good BoA set lol
j/k

I just hope the BoA is not BIS.

they should make high crafting lvls as hard to get as Para lvl 100 and not click for 10 lvls.
Hence those professional crafters should be able to make a profit by playing AH3 and create a market.

Making everyone go through a crafting activity if it is BIS puts off non crafting wannabes =)

"Comparative advantage" crafters for some, farmers for some, players for the others.
BoA bracers are kinda BiS.

~330 INT
~100 VIT
80 All res
400+ total armor
7 pick up radius

That's no joke lol
Doing mp10 atm:

40 Elites - 10 Demonic essences

@Necropuddi Yea the Bracers are insane. I crafted 8 pairs with some REALLY good results. 3 had CC, 4 had AR. Example:

48Dex
261Int
46LR
76AR
13% Gold find
3.5cc
