After over a decade of bringing you the latest Diablo news and builds, DiabloFans will be shutting down on March 21st, 2019. On this date, we will archive the site in an effort to preserve the history. Thanks for your patronage throughout the years.
Aside from the new crafting recipes, though, I think we should also put some ample spotlight onto the fact that drop rates for ALL crafting recipes that already exist in the game were increased by 400%. Since the patch, I've picked up a ton of additional crafting recipes that do NOT create account bound items, and since people were having luck with crafting the new Archon armors and amulets lately, last night, I tried crafting maybe five or six 1h Maces for my Monk, who could use either some variety in weapons, or just a new main hand.
Some of them were okay, this was probably the best one I got out of only six tries.
1.2 Attacks per second
233-508 Arcane Damage
2.9% Life Steal
Obviously, not epic by any stretch, but not terrible for only six shots at it. Most people craft maybe 20-30 things before they get something incredible.
I have it on my Monk right now, which is what I was shooting for, an off-hand weapon with some Life Steal. But even something like this, that's not epic and pretty easy to upgrade, gives me some hope that better stuff could occur via crafting.
I could use some time to recoup some costs and restore some of my materials, but once I have closer to 10 million gold (around 7.3 million right now), I'll try it out some more.
My best one after exactly 800 crafts in one session (mind you, I have yet to craft a single trifecta)
I should add that originally I was searching an upgrade for my barb, after 750 crafts where I got ONLY crap, I switched to DEX amulets, within the first 5 amulets I got that one and gave it to my monk which wasn't wearing any gear at that time, what a waste.
My crafts so far. Got the shoulders oafter 15 crafts, bracers after 58 crafts and the amulet is the best I've got after 250 crafts or so. I'll still craft, since all of these can be upgraded. But so far I'm a happy crafter
