New crafting plans: go for vita??

Monk
Let's take gloves for example and compare BIS rolls of base vita versus base dex:

vita craft:
230 vit
200 dex
100dex/+100vit (so 330vit, 300 dex total!)
9 ias
50 cd
10 cc

dex craft:
230 dex
100 vit
100dex/100vit (so 200vit, 330 dex total...100 stats less than the vita craft)
etc

Of course none of us will ever roll bis, and for the casual pve player who only cares about dps and only only does a couple crafts and hopes for like high dex difecta, the dex craft will be better. But, for the perfectionist aspiring pvp player who plans on doing 1000s of crafts, go vita!

Edit: this is based on the following change on ptr:

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

* Archon Spaulders:

o Dexterity, Intellect, and Vitality can now roll 201-230 in their respective stat (up from 100-115)

o Strength could already roll in this range, and so remains unchanged

* Archon Gauntlets:

o Strength and Vitality can now roll 201-230 in their respective stat (up from 100-115)

o Dexterity and Intellect could already roll in this range, and so remained unchanged

* Archon Armor:

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

* Razorspikes:

o Strength, Dexeterity, Intellect, and Vitality can now roll 201-230 in their respective stat (up from 101-115)
In fact, the math above only holds true for gloves. For bracers, there's no mathematical stat difference between rolling dex and vita and for archon armors, the opposite is the case: we want to roll base dex and hope for a random 200 vit roll.
Looks good, I'll be one of the guys rolling a few pairs and hoping for something good, not going to be thousands going for perfect. Wonder if they will tweak the plans any more...
i read when PTR went live that gloves would only roll 130str or vit unless something has been changed.
