    Crafting belts and rerolling charms

    Im gonna look abit into crafting blood belts, since they can get som handy mods, but which belts do I wanna craft? Vampier, Sharkskin, Spiderweb ect ect:scratch:

    And a scond question, is it a bad idea to start rerolling charms and hoping for Ar/Life mods(Its for my BvC:smiley: )? Ofc Max Dmg doses not hurt:rolleyes: If I were to do this, what Ilvl charms schould I choose? Anyone ever tryed this?

    I think most ppl craft exceptional version of belt for the lower lvl requirement

    If you roll charms better use baal gc (GC dropped by Nihlathak/Diablo/Baal) so you can have a hope to roll one with 45 life.

    Any elites you find, happen to gamble, or see in vendor shops, should be crafted, assuming they're of the type you want to craft. If your inventory is getting full of gems, jewels and runes, though, the very moment you start thinking 'I'm running out of space' is the point you should use them on exceptionals, which are mostly for trading purposes. Either you trade the supplies to make space or you trade the resulting crafts (selling the ones that don't), if you don't have an immediate use for such crafts.

    ILvl91 or higher grand charms are ideal for rerolling, and only a charm that'll get you at least as much as such a provable charm (i.e. 41-45 life suffix-only) would be worth stopping rerolling it. Any other charm from ILvl85 monsters will do for anything else, and then any decent affixes are worth keeping.

    For blood belts, IMO only craft mesh belts, ie exceptional version of "Belt", as the elite version is pretty heavy, ie 106 Strength required.

    Definately a good point. The idea behind blood belts is usally to get the handy life/OW mods, with a nice fat strength bonus. Mesh belts strike a nice balance between strength requirement (58, not so hard for most melee classes that'd use one), and defense, plus they have four slots.

    So Mesh belts or other execptionals is the way to go? Thats a great help :smiley: But what is wrong with Sharkskin and Demonhide belts? They have even lower rq. and the def is not that, and they all have 16 potion slots.

    As for the charms, I guess that only Baal Gc's are worth rerolling. But what about small charms, can they spawn 3/20/20, even if they are not dropped by Baal, Nili or Diablo?

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but if I read your question right you are also asking which kind of belt to use. For a crafted blood belt, you only have three choices (Magic belt, Magic mesh belt, Magic mithril coil). http://www.battle.net/diablo2exp/items/crafted/blood.shtml . The other responses seem to indicate the prefered choice of these is the mesh belt due to requirements.

    Snip from the page you listed: You can use the Normal, Exceptional, or Elite versions of items.

    You need ilvl 61+ to possibly get a 3/20/20. For GCs, you can get 132 AR at ilvl 49, so if your main focus is AR, I don't see a need for using Baal GCs.

    And the Normal, Exceptional, and Elite versions of "belt" are belt, mesh belt, and mithril coil. Belt only has 3 rows for potions and mithril coil requires 106 str, so I think Mesh belt is the way to go.

    Only belt is used for crafting blood belts.
    Demonhide sash is for safety belts, where sharkskin belt is for caster belts.

    Not bad odds, when you consider that that's only 5 pgems, 5 jewels you'd throw away anyway, a tiny bit of cash for gambling if necessary... and one rune. five runes + five pgems + some gold + trash = something useful? :thumbsup: gotta love it
