Hi everyone. New in the game, and new in the forum. Very bizzare name, yes, I was flustered getting names rejected on arena registration I mashed random buttons I didn’t think climbing arena ladder was this fun.
Anyways, I’ve been reading quite a bit of wikis and guides here, enough to learn the existence of Mythic/Set/Crystal/Legendary Affixes. Learning from Rubik’s Crystallography steps, I’ve become a bit confused. I really want to start it right.
I’ve been collecting lv 100 4 sockets item in preparation of getting Mythics, but now I’ve got questions:
Why getting hi-quality item base more preferable than socketed items? Zircons > Peridot, no?
Why Crystal Affix (step 1) over Mythics (step 2)? Is it because Crystal Affix can’t be removed and it’s only a random of 6, whereas Mythic is a fixed variable?
What about starting from legendary item to save rubies?
How many legendary affix can we have in an item? Why do we need epic affix (step 4, Rubik’s Guide) if we can fill the rest slot with leg affix?
Assuming my understanding is right, I would want to start with quality (ideally) 4 sockets items, and roll obsidian first, only to throw it out of the window if the affix I want isn’t among the 6 offered? Rinse and repeat. ONLY after that, onwards to Mythic. So, wow, I can only get when I have obsidian that gives me good affix… on 4 sockets item (which I assume I’ll get plenty trying to get obsidian and MS’es)… ? Pretty arduous journey to reach only the first step towards crafting an item… correctly. Yes?
I am maining Gunner Rouge, with Pierce/Reactor’ed Orb Wizard Hireling. How significant is Multiattack/Extra Attack chance on my characters? (Cont. below)
6a. I always favored extra attack on my Gun earlier on. But I’ve got multiattack on it now (gives me 3 bullets per shot reliable), do I still want extra attack? I read it works although visually it doesn’t (2 Multi + 2 Extra doesn’t give me 5 bullets a time, but 3 with some Extra proc rapid shot). Is it still stronger than other epic affixes ?
6b. Extra attack on Wizard Pierce, only like burst shot, not like angled 3 projectiles. Is it good or should I go with some other affix?
I think it’s everything that’s been bugging me for a while now. Thanks so much in advance for the tips and guidance.
