I was killing Azmodan and got the legendary crafting item and 10 minutes later i got the plan for the shoulders aswell. Checked out a couple of videos and this seems to be a pretty bad item to craft. Has anyone crafted it? And are you happy with it?

Well, I guess the issue with them is that they are completely, utterly, 100% random. No guaranteed stats at all. No special effects. You might get something good. But you might burn your mats and a couple of hundred thousand gold for nothing.
Personally I'd say that if you have the Diary and the gold isn't going to ruin you, you might as well salvage two crappy legendaries and take a crack at this. Worst thing that will happen is that you'll get garbage and then you can salvage it and get one of your Forgotten Souls back, right?
Legendaries should never have random properties and if they do they should not have only 6. Something must be there to make them legendary and not just a pumped up rare. Sometimes I'm amazed by the contrast between how good and bad certain elements of the game are.
