    i have spent over 5 mil and countless demonic essences and firey brimstones and dint get any upgrades. i think i will put crafting a side for a long while lol. guess im just not lucky



    ...bingo. There inlies the problem. While i dont agree there should be an automatic upgrade involved in crafting, there should be some kinda balance to make you want to do it! If you have bad luck in drops, chances are you will have bad luck in crafting... true story. The luck factor needs to be lessened / balanced


    Disagree. Getting rid of the luck factor also means that the game turns into a WoW-like game in which simply the time you spent in the game determines your level of gear (there's a bit of variety in WoW as well but it's not nearly as luck-driven as in Diablo). It was always one of the great features of Diablo that even an almost newborn character (once reached the last difficulty) could find cool stuff (unique in a Baal run or at Gheed, high rune from Countess) and the time spent only roughly changed your probability (by getting more chances, but not necessarily higher chances of drops).

    A perfect quinfecta amulet on the AH will cost several billions. So it's only fair that you invest some hundreds of millions in an attempt to get one. That you might never get one is just a feature that was always part of the Diablo series. I played D1 with my monk to the max, but never found a King's Staff of Haste (found a King's Sword of Haste, though). I played D2 quite a lot (though never to 99, can't stand boring grinds); never found a high-rune or one of the super rare legendaries. Luck (and the chance of having an extremely unlucky streak) was always part of Diablo. I think the odds for "decent" items at crafting are high enough now that we have fixed stats, just look around how many people were crafted items. Some people might be unlucky, just like someone can farm 1000 hours and never find an Echoing Fury. It's tough, but should stay this way.

    They should just rename it gambling if major luck should be involved. Small luck influence is okay since if im crafting something irl time/skill/material is involved in the quality of the thing but this complete so called rng is nothing like crafting.

    But i also won't put much stock in rng until they publish the design they implemented in their pseudo random number generator.

    RNG is RNG. I don't know why people can't grasp that random is random, and spamming 1x or 100x does not change the odds per craft of getting somethng good. It's a possible solution to not finding better, not the end all answer. If you don't like crafting, keep farming kills for one or use gold on AH for it. Simple as that. Given how many possible variables exist, you cannot hope to expect "perfection" every time or at any time. I've seen some good/close items, but they lack something here or there to be "best". People's OCD for "it needs to be best or it's not worth it" drives me batty. Yes, having the absolute perfect best is optimal, but this is Diablo. Absolute perfect best is NOT going to magically fall in your lap without a LOT of effort.

    Also, these patterns were designed so people could be more self-sufficient, and not rely on the AH to find better. It was not designed to be "the perfect solution". You have options. If you don't like this one, don't use it, simple as that.

    That said, I have a neck on my barb that got things half right and will be a pain in the arse to replace.

    The hard ones are going to be the 10% CHC and 78% CHD. It lacks vit and resist all for my tastes, but it was a HUGE boost over what I had, so I had to settle for the moment. I don't have the brimstones to throw around at the moment.

    Nothing spectacular, gloves rolled nice CHC and IAS but no CHD and wrong resists. Neck rolled CHC and CHD but no AS and wrong resists. Shoulders were decent only thing they lack is AR. I've crafted bracers of Vitality since I was pretty low on life and again decent rolls on resists and nice CHC.

    Took me 10-20 crafts of each to get these results.

    Quote from Rhashir

    RNG is RNG.


    RNG can be balanced in many different ways. Many games are only based on RNG, like roulette for example. Roulette has 37 pockets and 2 colors. Casinos balanced them this way so the player is attracted enough by the chances to win. This game is 100% RNG. But it could also be 100% RNG with 200 pockets and 10 colors, but no one would play because the odds of winning would be too low.

    Now you know how lucky you were :P

    Being a forum member and checking news and the official forums every now and then, I can state now that I have crafting phobia. Yes, particularly with Amulets (I'm okay with Shoulders and Bracers).

    I'm afraid of crafting 100 and not getting a single useable amulet :fret: (even though my characters have shitty amulets). f.m.l.
  • #175
    crafted more than 500 amulets.. best one so far was -45k dmg...
  • #176
    Im finding getting decent gloves tough! I must be lucky with amulets as ive gotten maybe 3 tri and one quads so far!
