    I heard this rumor on how to craft a really good bow. You need a magic grand matron bow, I think i spelled it right. And all you have to do is perfect gem cube it, untill it becomes cruel. If youre lucky you can get 300%ed :)

    have any of you heard about this?

    try doing the same thing, but wioth chipped gems instead of perfs...

    There is a chipped gem recipe to do the same thing... (Actually, I think it just requires a gem...don't matter what type gem) Chipped are just plain easier to get...

    AFAIK 3 chipped gems work only on swords (yielding magic swords with 3 sockets). I've tried it on polearms and axes - no luck.

    What Fugu is describing is the 3 perfect gem formula for rerolling mods for magic items. That would take a lot of patience and luck to get exactly what you are looking for (I know, I tried it with a G. Thresher. Got tired of it and went shopping).

    If you do the 3 perf gem formula on magic items where you are a little more flexible on the mods, you get better results. I am currently using it to upgrade some of my charms, with some degree of success even (I would call getting small scintillating charms and 5% MF charms decent success). :D

    Interesting... Btw, right now all the craft recipes activated are a total joke.

    In 1.08 there were some decent recipes for class specific items and stuff, and for good skills ammies, but then they turned 'em off in 1.09 for God knows why. They would've helped the economy... but no, this is of course, a Blizzard game ;).

    crafting would be good if they would just make it harder to get good items

    Crafts were always a joke. It was a waste of items to use them in a craft, the returns and probability thereof should have been much higher.

    I got some cool crafted items. I craft mostly ammys/rings and I craft exceptional/elite magicals.

    e.g. dual leech +1 paladin skills ammy (blood recipe)
    26% magic find + mana + lightning resist +5% faster cast rate amulet +1 sorceress skills (caster recipe)
    It seems like every ammy I make has +skills for some class of character...

    Hey,

    I've been around bnet, but haven't seen anyone around. I have a character msc_wran now and she's a level 82 sorceress...

    Do we have a clan channel now online?

    Wran

    P.S. D2X sucks on OS X. The graphics are awful and gives me a headache.

    We've always had the channel clan macsubculture. I'm on all the time too, you must not have anyone on your friends list that still plays.
