Crafting Vit Shoulders Instead Of Str

Barbarian
This is probably obvious to everyone else, but I thought I would point it out as it wasn't to me. As we can get rather large Str rolls on shoulders normally, if you aren't looking for absolute BiS dps shoulders it is probably a lot more likely to craft Vit shoulders that are pretty solid. I took about 20 rolls to make mine and picked up 11k life over my vile wards keeping everything else roughly the same. Hope it helps someone :)
Actually, int/dex can roll equally high. See the patch note.
so you're saying on strength or vit archon pattern, bot str and vit can go up to 300?
possible rolls for strenght shoulders: 330 strenght, 200 vit,

possible rolls for vit shoulders 330 vit, 300 strenght.
Yeah, I've made at least 250 vit shoulders so far, though I still haven't hit anything that's a clear upgrade over my relatively cheap rare shoulders though.

possible rolls for vit shoulders 330 vit, 300 strenght.


Is this right? Seems pretty worth it to me.

I am sure the 300 str is possible, the one I made (currently wearing) rolled 277 str, I crafted the vit one. As for the 330 vit part, I think it is possible if you get both perfect rolled on the fixed vit ,230, then a perfect str/vit split roll, which can give you up to 100 vit, thus 330 possible. Mine got double split rolls on top of the fixed bit, one str/dex split, one str/int split, if one of those were str/vit, it would have been freaking awesome :)

Nope only one mixed can roll. Yours is either str/dex with single int or str/int with a single dex.

Max rolls on new crafted items:
vit shoulders: 300 str + 330 vit (630)
str shoulders: 330 str + 200 vit (530)

vit bracers: 200 str + 330 vit (530)
str bracers: 330 str + 200 vit (530)

vit chest: 200 str + 330 vit (530)
str chest: 330 str + 300 vit (630)

vit gloves: 200 str + 330 vit (530)
str gloves: 330 str + 200 vit (530)

vit amu: 350 str + 380 vit (730)
str amu: 380 str + 350 vit (730)
yep, every time I see a barb with crafted str shoulders I cry a little inside. I tried telling a couple of them, but they just thought I was trolling =/
I didnt know this u.u thanks for the heads up, I have some ok shoulders so didnt roll too much, I think! but thank you :D
I'm having mixed feeling on this,... #s dont lie but I feel it's harder to roll a good Vit pair vs good str pair,... my exp has been exactly that,...

I made 60x Vit shoulders (all trash)
I decided I was going to make 10x str to compare and see if those were an upgrade over my vile ward's and the pair I am wearing now was and way better than anything I got from vit shoudlers,... I need good +AR on shoudlers along with other good rolls,... I can;t decide if I hsould go 2 ammy then gloves then come back and make vit shoulders or start making mass vit shoudlers 2 replace my current 1s then move on 2 ammy,... all I know is getting a good str vit shoudler craft is seems rear,...

if anyone was wondering also crafted 80x str gloves all trash and 20x str bracers have 1s I'm wearing
