Pimp my farming equipment

My first attempt at crafting, and I went with farming gear. I’m not looking for immortality or ultimate destruction. Would appreciate any constructive criticism.






pluses:

It mows through the hundreds at ep1, and is a little challenging at the 300’s. The immortal cartographers make me spend money to complete the maps, but that is ok. I’m having a good time with this character overall.

I like the procs so they will probably stay. I like to think of an old Wizard when I play, and storms and tornados are something I think they would use.

The less than 200% gold find will stay also as I’m tired of wasting stones and time trying to get perfection.

Minuses:

I think I should replace the +5 manashield with something. I don’t want to put a legend or crystal as I got lucky with the maxed out other affixes with only 2% quality.

I also think the aoe on the wand can be changed to something else.

I’m thinking another set affix for the shield, and maybe frostproof (what ever it’s called) for the wand.

On to Rogue when I’m bored with this.

Thanks in advance.

Personally, I have a ton of gold – not that there is too much. As such, in my notes, I show that Item Drop is also a legend affix with a max value of 50.

Since item drop and luck are way more important to me than gold find, when building, I’d add my crystal affix, add any set affixes, then add my legend affixes. If I don’t get “Item Drop”, add something, then keep going until all slots are filled with legend affixes. Delete the legend affixes I don’t necessarily want at that time (you have to choose SOMETHING from the list presented). Once you have Item Drop and Luck (if luck matters to you), fill up your other affixes and reroll until you get your affixes balanced the way you want. If you have epic affixes, you can reroll them by themselves later. Right now, you’re stuck with re-roll all, since you can’t re-roll just a crystal or legend affix. Now, you can add your socket and mythstone to add some more item drop :smile:.

There is a cap of 200 on “item quantity”, which I assume is “Item Drop”. Since you have 200 in your current build, that’s moot. You could reach that with 4 legends instead of 6 mythstones.

Luck has a 650% cap. You “only” have 400 luck. Perhaps adding a “set affix” that feeds off the luck stat like Faun’s Gifts or the gold find like Golden Veins would help. What about adding the nature of Luck to an item or two might help.

Only one other thing to add and that’s that the quality of some gear isn’t maxed out.

Thanks. I thought about the set affixes. My luck is 650%. Three maxed out crystals and a maxed epic affix.

You are correct. I didn’t scroll far enough. You have a nature of luck, which adds 10%, but since luck is capped at 650%, I assume that nature is wasted. Also, you have 2 greed natures, for 25% each. If you are playing at any level above 1 (difficulty level), I believe those percentage adds for luck and such are being wasted.

Thanks, I didn’t know that about the natures.
