Diablo3: Patch 1.07 Crafting Recipe

Diablo 3 crafting 1.07
All the new recipes included with the latest Diablo 3 patch 1.07

The Archon Armor Chest Piece Recipe can be purchased from Squirt the Peddler for 1.5 million gold. The other plans are random drops in every act, but have an additional chance killing these bosses when you have five stacks of Nephalem Valor:

Skeleton King
Spider Queen
Zoltun Kulle

The drop rate from the above bosses will scale according to your Monster Power level:

MP 0: 20%
MP 1: 23.2%
MP 2: 26.912%
MP 3: 31.218%
MP 4: 36.213%
MP 5: 42.007%
MP 6: 48.728%
MP 7: 56.524%
MP 8: 65.568%
MP 9: 76.059%
MP 10: 88.228%

Each new crafting recipe for Account Bound (AB) gear will roll with +201-230 to Base Stat and 5 Random Properties.
The +201-230 base stat roll is, essentially, a guaranteed primary base stat prefix with affix level 64 whereas normal rare items can only drop up to affix level 63
The max base stat on all crafted gear is now 330
This has an interesting interaction with the 1.0.6 rare gear base stat drops
1.0.6 Archon Gauntlets can drop with up to 300 Int or Dex, but only 200 Str
1.0.6 Archon Spaulders can only drop up to 200 Int or Dex, but 300 Str
1.0.6 Razorspikes and Archon Armor can only drop up to 200 Int, Dex or Str
This implies that there’s some new potential best in slot (BiS) gear:
For Barbs, 1.0.7 AB crafted Gauntlets, Razorspikes and Archon Armor are the only non-Legendary way to roll more than 200 Str
For DHs and monks, 1.0.7 AB crafted Spaulders, Razorspikes and Archon Armor are the only non-Legendary way to roll more than 200 Dex
For Wizards and WDs, 1.0.7 AB crafted Spaulders, Razorspikes and 1.0.7 AB Archon Armor are the only non-Legendary way to roll more than 200 Int
Vile Ward (1.0.6 shoulders) can roll up to 300 of each base stat due to being Legendary and they still get 1 Random Property beyond that (e.g., Pickup Radius, MF/GF, Vitality, +% Life)
Since there are so many Vile Wards out there now, crafting AB Archon Spaulders is a waste unless you want the combination of 201+ base stat, Pickup Radius and GF/MF
Strongarm Bracers (bracers) can roll up to about 265 in each base stat, but only 4.5% CC%
For anyone not invested in a nice CC set of Lacuni Prowlers, AB crafted Razorspikes can roll substantially better than Strongarm Bracers
Tasker and Theo (gloves) roll with a socket which means they can have a base stat above the crafted AB Archon Gloves, but have to use up both random properties to do so which means no CC and CD to go with their inherent IAS bonus
For Barbs not running full IK Set (for some reason), AB crafted Archon Gauntlets can roll 201+ Strength, CC, IAS, CD with a very lucky roll so these may be worth the occasional gamble and that’s better than any Rare Strength Gauntlets available in 1.0.6
For DH and Wizards, AB crafted Archon Gauntlets may be worth a gamble simply because 1.0.6 rare gloves with IAS / CD / CC / 201+ Dex or Int have a sky high price tag
Mara’s Kaleidoscope (Amulet) can roll up to 389 in any base stat and still have 3 random properties beyond that, so they’ll always have the possibility to roll better than an AB crafted amulet (albeit at a cost well over 2 billion Gold)
Even at their relatively high crafting cost, Amulets are probably nearly always worth crafting; if nothing else, you’re sure to occasionally get a fantastic follower amulet with a good MF or GF roll

All of these gears roll with a guaranteed 201+ base Stat, 5 guaranteed Rare properties and ilvl 63 Armor. It’s easy to forget that the best Archon Gauntlets (ilvl 63) roll with over 130 more Armor than the worst Warlord Gauntlets (ilvl 60) even if they have the same affix pool. Dropped rare gear certainly has no guarantee to drop with a Base Stat prefix; even if they do, it’s not very common to also roll the highest alvl 63 affix and even less common to roll high within that alvl 63 affix range. AB crafted gear is guaranteed that kind of roll every time. This is particularly true with Amulets.

Have you ever wondered why it seems like practically all of your amulets drop with crappy mods? Besides often rolling with fewer than 6 affixes, one of the primary reasons for crappy mods is that Amulets have a huge variety of possible mods. Boots or Pants, for instance, can’t roll with Crit Chance so they’re actually more likely to roll with 200+ base stats than Gloves. Amulets can roll with nearly every possible mod in the game. That makes rolling any given mod very small. By guaranteeing 6 random Properties that include a desirable 201+ Base Stat roll, you’ll find that practically any given AB crafted amulet is going to be better than any given dropped amulet the vast majority of the time. If you’re in the market for an Amulet costing around 20 million Gold, I would bet you’ll craft a better one than you can find on the AH within the equivalently-costed 160 crafts, albeit without the opportunity to resell it later.
Crafting Cost

Ruby Gem

Builds geared towards no CC/CD like a Hydra Wizard or Sentry DH will get much more dps out of a RS Ruby than a RS Emerald
When leveling an alt, CC can be hard to come by which means +damage is worth more than +% CD and leaves 2 windows where Rubies are better than Emeralds
Level 15-30: weapons start rolling with a socket at ilvl 15 and high dps Spectrums don’t become available until clvl 30. The legendary weapon Genzaniku can roll a socket at level 9.
Unlike certain Legendary Armors, there are no weapons that can roll with a socket under clvl 15 (P.S., Blizzard, can you make some Legendary weapons with sockets under clvl 15? Thanks!)
Level 42-55: the maximum reduced level requirement is 18 which means ilvl 63 weapons start being available at clvl 42 which will roll higher higher damage than most Spectrums; since level-reduced gloves and bracers with high CC are extremely rare and costly, it’s unlikely your hero will enough CC until clvl 56 to make the RS Emerald better than the RS Ruby

There really isn’t much difference in the +% Experience and +Strength gem effects between a Star Ruby and a RS Ruby. The damage increments, however, are substantial at every level of Ruby above Flawless Square when leveling an alt. If the general population picks up on this, there will be a substantially larger market for Flawless Star and Perfect Star Rubies than there is right now (i.e., tiny market vs. no market all). They’re much more affordable than the RS Rubies and have far more value than Star Rubies.


Diablo3: Recovering Dead Hardcore Characters

This will be using Blizzards rollback feature to get your hardcore characters back to life.

We want it to make it seem like we were hacked. When we send a support ticket to Blizzard they can rollback accounts erasing all history for the last 24-48 hours.

1) Wait at-least a couple hours to login.
2) Download Hotspot Shield Here, this will change the location of your connection. This makes it look like someone else used your account.
3) Once you have your Hotspot Shield running login and delete all of your characters on the account.
4) Remove Hotspot Shield and wait at-least a few hours.
5) Submit a support ticket on the Blizzard site and claim your account was hacked and the forums said they can do a rollback.

Also when you do at-least 2 rollbacks on your account you will no longer be able to use the Real Money Auction House for a year. This isn't a big deal since it is not used on Hardcore.

Finally, This method can also be used on Softcore. If you were to sell a high value item on the RMAH and do a rollback you will get the item back and still have the money.
