    L70+ crafting, what's your best gear piece?

    Looking at all the L75 gear on LB made me wonder, what is the best gear you have made? Obviously the top of LB have the most incredible luck in the world to be able to craft entire sets of L75 gear with near perfect stats, but how good is the crafting luck of us mere mortals?

    Here are my 2 best crafted pieces to date. Didn't do multiples so each piece was a one time craft. Don't have mats to make dozens of legendary set items in hopes of beating odds and making something better. Also made an L70 Whirlwind Axe with max stats which I use with Cleaver, and I've crafted some gear for BH and mage, but got nothing special on those attempts. . What is your best crafted piece and how many attempts did it take you?

    Haven't started crafting yet, waiting for things to mature a little before deciding where to invest my hard-earned crafting mats. But I'll probably start by crafting a set of guns for either Assaut (Tesla) or Stalker (Malice/Ill Will) BH.
    So far got only a few usable drops. IIRC, a couple 71-72 non-set guns (using for story mode only) and a passable Havoc Hood, actually a little better than the one it replaced.

    EDIT: NOT a Havoc Hood

      Also thinking about crafting a complete blue or purple Xtra Gold set (Full Assault or maybe 4/2 Assault/Havoc with Tesla guns for the extra range). Of course, if I find any suitable legendaries at 50%+ I'll just keep those instead.

          Do you plan on farming on legendary?

            For gold I usually play Normal, but I might go Legendary for the extra crafting mats.
            Nice set, except for the last Hailstorm which is a little low on damage but still useful for farming!

              Yeah I'd like to get a really good one to farm on legendary maybe but that one does well on normal. I just crafted regular legendaries for my gold farmer since you can one shot everything with almost any gear on normal. Crafting uses so much gold I only manage 2-4 crafts per day.

                I'm in the same boat. I thought we would be half done with ANB right now and I know what to expect from our celestial cube rewards. If I can get 75/74 weapons from the gold ANB that would be great, then I'll craft some other pieces, maybe go for 73 on each?

                  I did something similar with my warrior. Crafted a full set of epic jugg gear with extra gold and experience. Thought at time that I could mine gold and experience together. Simple beginners mistake (5 mos into play, lol). Learned quickly gold and exp mining with same gear doesn't work well. Didn't realize at time needed to take on higher trials for exp, and storyline for gold. Also found out needed more speed for faster mining so switched to BH.
                  Now have 2 separate legendary assault sets for BH; one for gold (~680%) and another for exp (~790%). Using Tesla gun set for exp, and Shadow Assassin set for gold. The extra range of scatter shot with tesla set really helps in trials, whereas using SA gun set with poison shot in story mode helps clear out mobs pretty quickly, even without using any Stalker gear.

                        73s seem to be just good enough for anything but weapons. A good 73 (emphasys on GOOD) should be at least 20-25% better than any Lvl 70 Legendary, or more or less equivalent to a Lvl 70 Celestial.
                        For weapons, however, I think the damage range is more important than any particular stat, as it cannot be replaced by any other piece pf gear.
                        Also, even if a good 73 weapon might conceivably get a better damage range than a poor Lvl75 one, the latter will surely outshine the former after being properly 'sharpened' with either a few Celestial Orbs or a Celestial Transform.

                          I seldom use Snipe (or most active skills) while farming Gold, so the SA set bonus is lost. After trying Tesla guns for the first time, I was amazed at the new Scattershot range. For the first time ever, I felt comfortable playing Assault BH. I was thinking Explosive shot + Torch and Firebug + Havoc gloves and helm for my next gold farming set, but now I might go full assault with Tesla set instead.

                          For Trials, however, the jury is still out on which is better (for my playstile), [Stalker + SA] or [Assault + Tesla]

                            MarkHark I had similar thoughts about a 2:4 Havoc:Assault set to take advantage of explosive bonus plus using Ignitor gun set a month or so ago. Ran same trial level several times with both gear/gun sets. Despite explosive bonus of havoc plus Ignitor gun set I was still able to finish trial with full Assault gear & Tesla gun set about 2-3 min faster. Maybe my play style favors one over other, but I do better with full assault +Tesla set.

                              No doubt on that! Havoc set lacks a lot in ferepower compared to both Assault and Stalker, and is VERY slow against bosses, so not very useful for Trials.
                              I believe it might be useful for gold farming though, especially at Normal level, when most mobs die to a single explosion. With the larger radius plus the bonus missiles, a 2:4 set might be able to ouspeed a Full Havoc. Still open to testing.

                              By the way, I still think Havoc should get some bonus to Explosive shot. I have posted a suggestion a while ago that Havoc gear increases Explosive shot proc chance by 5% apiece, taking it up to 75%. Now I wonder if the Igniter set might give an additional 15-25% so we can get up to 90-100% proc chance. I believe this would make the mob phase go a bit faster, giving your hero a little more time to grind at the Boss.
