    a few questions

    I would like to craft an ammy with these mods

    +2 pally skills
    +fcr
    +life
    +mana
    +all res

    now im a bit of a new comer to crafting. whats the best char level and item level to craft something like this? say like an ammy found in normal vs hell?

    also is it possible for a 5%fhr sc spawn with x life mod?

    Not possible, both are suffixes.

    To get +2 skills, you need an ilvl of 90+ ((this is the ilvl of the original amulet + your level) / 2). So if you've got an amulet from hell Baal, that's ilvl 99. You would need to be level 81 or higher to have a chance at +2 skills. If you have an amulet from a regular monster in an area like Worldstone Keep or the Pit, that's ilvl 85, so you'd have to be level 95 for that. If it's from a champion in one of those areas, that's ilvl 87: you'd have to be level 93. For a unique monster, ilvl **: you'd have to be level 92.

    Or, if you're level 93 you're guaranteed at gambling an ilvl **+ amulet. So if you craft with those you'll have a chance every time of +2 skills. The chance that you won't be able to get +2 skills increases as your level goes down if you gamble your amulet.

    Not quite. It's: [old_ilvl/2] + [clvl/2], where [] means round down. See the difference below.

    [99/2] + [81/2] = 49 + 40 = 89 ==> bad
    [99/2] + [82/2] = 49 + 41 = 90 ==> good

    [85/2] + [95/2] = 42 + 47 = 89 ==> bad
    [85/2] + [96/2] = 42 + 48 = 90 ==> good

    [87/2] + [93/2] = 43 + 46 = 89 ==> bad
    [87/2] + [94/2] = 43 + 47 = 90 ==> good

    [**/2] + [92/2] = 44 + 46 = 90 ==> good

    This is correct and the recommended way to do it.

    Note that +2 skills is the highest desired affix, so if you can get +2 skills (ilvl 90), then you can get everything else. Definitely use the Castor crafting recipe (Ral + Perfect Amethyst + any Jewel + Magic Amulet) for a fixed chance of 5-10% FCR. It's also possible to get the 10%FCR "of the apprentice" suffix.

    I didn't realize it was rounded down before adding the levels together. Thanks for clearing that up.
