Blizzard hates strength?

  • #1
    If you go to the AH and search for dexterity or intelligence on hands, you can find 46 paged of gloves with over 200 int or dex all the way up to 299 (300 I suppose), but if you look for strength you can only find up to 200 and those are extremely expensive.

    Does anyone know why you can get 100 more dexterity or intelligence on gloves than strength?

    It's luck of rolls.

    It is possible to get that much, but to do it, here is how it works:

    1 Property is a +XX for a single stat, upwards of like 120 or so.
    1 Property is a +XX/+XX for two stats, upwards of like 50-80.

    It is possible to get both on one item.

    And yes, Strength can too. Your ideal would be for it to have +Strength, and then +Strength/+Vitality.

    Oh, compound the fact that there is 2 users for Dex and Int items, while only 1 for Strength, does skew the market some too.

    It's because of this. (not my spreadsheet, someone posted it a few days ago). Not all stats have the same maximum on the same Gear Slots. You can have 300 Dex or Int on Gloves but only 200 Str. But you can have 300 Str on Shoulders. Dex and Int have a maximum of 200 here. This spreadsheet really helps with planning your gear, because you can just look up the maximum possible number for almost any stat in any slot.
    I'm really sorry, I can't remember who posted it.

    But I am pretty sure it is impossible for strength to have over 200 while there are pages upon pages of dexterity that have over 200. Even if it were just rare for it to get two high rolls, there would be some on the AH.

    Ah ok I see now, it evens out over different pieces of gear.
    Didn't know that. (obviously)
