crafting and you

ok, i tried to figure this thing myself, reading AS, Uzziah's guide and the item suffixes/affixes page here, but i am still a little confused (prolly' beacause i am stoopid)
The task: i want 75 fcr on a hammerding without vipermagi. wizardspike/mesh leaves me at 70%. my 10 fcr ammys/rings don't have feasible mods for my cheesy guy, and i would have to sacrafice a +skills ammy or a fortitous ring of fortune to wear one.
instead i would like a ring/ammy with 10 fcr and +mf(ring) or pally skills/combat skills(amulet)
question1: should i craft caster rings that need to gain 2 affix to meet my wishes, but have some hammerdin-friendly affixes to begin with, or caster amulets that only need to gain 1 right affix, but that one seems to be rare...which leads to...

question2: how do i figure the chanches of an affix/suffix spawning on a crafted item? is the same principle that goes for rerolling charms apply, as in "get the lowest possible ilvl that is enough for the affix/suffix you want?". ah btw that leads us to

question3: are these ilvls correct for 1.10? http://www.diabloii.net/items/modifiers-new/xprefixes.shtml
it sais 1.09d, i am not sure if these have changed or not. but figuring from there i would only need an ilvl50 ammy to get +2 paladin skills on it, which surprises me since i have found most (all?) of my +skill amulets in hell. ok, just one more...edit: dumb me, it is because it is ilvl50 for shields...but 90 for amulets. sorrry.

question: crafted items gain rare or magical mods? is it possible to get +3 skill-tree on a crafted amulet?
edit: would it be more effective to just reroll blue amulets till i get a monk's amulet of the apprentice?

crafted items get rare mods, so you can't get +3 to a skill tree.

Why don't you want to wear trang's gloves? They give you nice Cold resists and will let you hit the BP.

I dont actually think i will need the resists...but i might need the mana from frosties. but either way that is still a useful suggestion, if i don't get the right jewelry, i will certainly do that. (or magefist)

Edit(Rephrase):
IIRC
Minimum level for crafting +2Skills caster amulet: 89
100% Chance of getting a chance to craft a +2Skills caster amulet: 93

when you say level, you mean ilvl of the amulet i craft, clvl or ilvl+clvl/2?
(my highest char is only 90 btw)

edit: thank you, Hrus! that is indeed what i need. dunno' how i managed to miss it.
edit of the edit: woot, according to the calculator, only 10k tries or so and i will have a monk's felicitous amulet of the apprenticie's fortune which is just what i need :p
on a more serious note i should get a char to lvl93 so i can craft get +2 all skills crafting lvl87 amulets.

Sorry my english isn't very good.

From the top of my head, your character needs to be level 89 to craft those amulets, and 93 so that every craft you get a chance.

can you get FCR on Caster gloves?

:) matt
and according to Hrus' link it can't gain it as a random suffix either. (that calc is the bomb. i love it)
and i really want the extra mana from frosties. (and if i reach the point where i dont need that mana, i would still prefer to wear rare mf gloves with something nice on it/chanche guards and swap the fortitous ring of fortune for one of my fcr rings with whatever mods.)

Why don´t you craft a caster belt? They get 5-10% Faster Cast.
because mesh has 20% and +1 skills?
btw, too bad the calc doesn't do imbues. or should i just calculate imbues as a rare monster drop with possibly +ilvl?

Ah, so 'mesh' is a belt? Sorry about that.
my bad, wasn't specific really. i am referring to:
Arachnid Mesh
Spiderweb Sash
Defense: 126
Durability: 11 of 12
Required Strength: 50
Required Level: 80
Item Version: 1.10 Expansion
Item Level: 87
Fingerprint: 0x4b3a6ab8
+101% Enhanced Defense
Increase Maximum Mana 5%
20% Faster Cast Rate
+1 to All Skill Levels
Slows Target by 10%
Level 3 Venom (11/11 Charges)

on the other hand, your suggestion is worth considering, since i will have to wear something prior to lvl80.
