    Crafting caster belt @ Lv30

    I am totally confused.
    I made these before, with correct lvs and all...but now I forgot what was what...:hide:

    lets say to get ilvl 70+, I am gambling my belts (or shopping rather) with lv 75 character. (cuz life is easy that way..)

    in which case what lv chracter should i be crafting these belts with?

    i thought it needed to be lv1 char but want to make sure before i start burning jewels, runes and ameths :)

    That really depends on what other mods you're looking for. Though, if you gambled with a character at 75 I think the ilvl of the item may be a tad bit high and allow for mods with an rlvl over 30.

    The crafted formula is: ilvl = int(.5 * clvl) + int(.5 * ilvl)

    You can find the char for affixes of light belts here.

    Those two bits of info will probably be a lot more helpful than I am. However, hopefully someone will come along and spoon feed us the info, because I'm wondering if my thinking is correct as well.

    well apart from standard 5~10 FCR i wanrted str, life and fhr (asking much here lol)

    looking at table, guess that is possible...but really really possible?
    i am just looking for optimal gambling lv and crafting lv.
    as with forumlar i thought i'd prolly end up with ilvl 70+ item (more likely 71+ but not too high with lv 75 char..), and with lv 1 char i would end up having ilvl 35...which sould fall under lv 30 (or is it? confusesesed)

    still waiting for spoon feeding :grin:

    You'll want the output ilvl to be less than 70. Reason being that if you get 24%fhr with three other affixes, the belt will always have a rlvl greater than 30.

    just to clarify: so 24FHR by itself does not make it rlv 30 or higher but with other mods it does?

    I believe what he is saying is, with 4 affixes the rlvl will be over level 30 no matter what. Therefore, crafting with an item over rlvl 70 gives you a 100% chance of having 4 affixes, making it impossible to use the item.

    If you spawn 4 affixes, you add +22 to the highest Rlvl. It's not managable with 24 FHR, but I *think* it should be okay with 17 FHR.

    The best belt you can do with a Rlvl = 30 and with 4 affixes is something like:

    Caster Belt
    17 FHR

    You can pick three from group 1, and two from group 2, but you can only have a total of three in the end (e.g. 10 Fire, 10 Lit, 10 Life or 10 Fire, 10 Life, 5 Strength). These mods are pretty low, but any higher and your Rlvl increases.

    Group 1
    10 Fire
    10 Lit
    10 Psn
    10 Cold
    10 Mana

    Group 2
    Replenish Life +5
    10 Life
    5 Strength

    so what i want is item to spawn with 24FHR, then its got to be 3 affix, and to do that I'd better get a nm sharkskin belts from...well nm :p

    in which case what would be better overall, go fo ilvl 51-70 for 3 affix, and 20% chance of 4th?
    or still stick with ilvl 71+ and just pray I get 17fhr?

    sorry for keep asking question, but you guys are really helpful :smile:
    i'd kiss you all if only that wasn't bordering illegal

    24FHR has req_lvl 13. 13 + 10+3*3 = 32, so 3 affixes is out. If you want 24FHR, you can only have 2 affixes. 17FHR is fine with 4 affixes, but if you're aiming for ilvl 51-70, then you are likely going to get another mod that pushes your belt over clvl 30. I'd probably end up aiming for closing to ilvl 30 or so.

    I'm pretty sure that's what I did. I think I went for around level 30-35, just because by that point you're getting most of the decent mods for the sake of not risking boosting the rlvl as often. I still had some that went over, but not many.
