Crafting Kb gloves need help - got some real questions that need real answers

Ok recently I got ahold of some crafting supplies and I am looking to make some +2 skill 20ias knockback gloves.

The type of gloves I will be using to make my craft are vamprace gloves.

I have the following info:

qlvl of vamprace gloves are: 69
ilvl of the vamprace gloves are: 85 (found in the pit act1 hell)
Alvl to make 20ias prefix spawn is: 43
Alvl to make +2 skill amazon prefix spawn is: 40
clvl of the crafter is: 58
ilvl of crafted item (must ensure this is 71 or higher to ensure 4 affixes spawn)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Step 1

Using the following forumla obtained from battle.net I must ensure that the ilvl here is level 71 or higher in order for 4 prefixes to spawn:

ilvl = int (.5 * clvl) + int (.5 * ilvl of item to be crafted)
ilvl = int (.5 * 58) + int (.5 * 85)
ilvl = int (29) + int (42.5)
ilvl = 29 + 42
ilvl = 71

Step 2

Now I have to determine if the ilvl is greater then 99 if it is then the ilvl becomes 99.

ilvl > 99
71 > 99

Therefore its false and the ilvl remains 71

Step 3

If qlvl > ilvl then ilvl becomes the qlvl:

qlvl > ilvl
69 > 71
False

Therefore the ilvl is still 71

Step 4 final

if ilvl < (99 - int(qlvl/2)) then affix level = ilvl - int(qlvl/2) Otherwise use this forumula affix level = ilvl - int(qlvl/2)

Plugging the following into this forumula I get

71 < (99 - int(69/2))
71 < (99 - int(34.5))
71 < (99 - 34)
71 < 65

There for this statement is false and therefore we have to use this forumla:

affix level = ilvl * 2 - 99

Final step:

affix level = ilvl * 2 - 99
affix level = 71 * 2 - 99
affix level = 142 - 99
affix level = 43

CONCLUSION

If I have done my calculations correct this means that I will be able to obtain the necessary mods I want while avoiding the one's that come at higher alvl's.

Can someone confirm if this is correct.

Also I would like to know if the character level should be higher to spawn a +2skill or will level 58 be ok?

Thanks

Re: Crafting Kb gloves need help - got some real questions that need real answers

yes, the minimum Ilvl for crafting those mods on KB (or CB gloves) is 71. Exactly how you calculated it 71x2=142, so a 43 affix level. So for what you want this is all right.
However if you want to want to have 15 strength as a possibility as well(a very good affix to get) you need affixlevel 59 for which you will need an Ilvl of 79. This will also make dexterity a possibility as that has an affixlevel of 56.

Re: Crafting Kb gloves need help - got some real questions that need real answers

Yeah right now I am just trying to craft up a possible +2 passive/20ias gloves.

One of the reasons I only want alvl 43 is because I can avoid the following mods (18 of them):

Bonus to mana (Dragon's 31 to 40 mana - alvl 52)
Defense mod (Godly 101-200ed defense - alvl 45 and alvl 50)
Bonus to strength (of the OX 6 to 9 strength - alvl 45)
Bonus to strength (of giant 10 to 15 strength - alvl 59)
Bonus to dexterity (of precision 10 to 15 dexterity - alvl 56)
Bonus to dexterity (of perfection 16 to 20 dexterity - alvl 75)
Durability (of ages - indestructable - alvl 50)

Amazon Charges:

Of charged strike - alvl 68
Of cold arrows - alvl 47
of exploding arrows - alvl 69
of freezing arrows - alvl 94
of ice arrow - alvl 72
of inner sight arrow - alvl 50
of multiple shot - alvl 63
of powerstrike - alvl 55
of lightning strike - alvl 90

Necromancer Charges:

of poison nova - alvl 72

That's 18 possible mods I can avoid right now in hopes that the mods I truly want will have a greater chance at spawning.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

If I use alvl 59 then I only avoid these mods (8 of them as opposed to the 18 above):

Bonus to dexterity (of perfection 16 to 20 dexterity - alvl 75)

Amazon Charges:

Of charged strike - alvl 68
of exploding arrows - alvl 69
of freezing arrows - alvl 94
of ice arrow - alvl 72
of multiple shot - alvl 63
of lightning strike - alvl 90

Necromancer Charges:

of poison nova - alvl 72

But yeah +2 skill/20ias and strength would be nice.

Thanks for helping me confirm that my calculations are correct.

Now the only thing I need to ask is does a higher level character help produce a +2 skill mod. Right now I am using a level 58 for my crafting. I would like to know if I a higher level character would be better or does it not matter?

The character level is used for determining craft Ilvl in step 1, and that is all it does.

BTW perfection & of ages (or any other magic only mod) can't spawn on crafts
