The Most Wonderful Blue Circlets

This is a little conundrum I've been dealing with for a while, so I figured I'd probe the knowledge base here for advice...

My 1.07 rack-runner has a map with a 100% Coronet rack. Big deal, right? Well, in 1.07, white Circlets (and their variants) don't exist, so every time I hit the rack, I am guaranteed a magic Coronet, and sometimes get a rare one.

I haven't milked it a bunch yet, but I'm tired of my map being locked up, since I can't rack for bases or the overpowered 1.07 S/U's. So, the question is, if you could get yourself a free magic Circlet every 30 seconds, what would be the ones you would absolutely want to make sure you get?

There are two major differences between 1.10+ and 1.07, that I have seen so far...

1) Jeweler's prefix only gets you one socket, so it's kinda worthless.

2) Maiming suffix is awesome. You know those 1.07 haX0rs GC's? Yeah...

Prefix 1007 Coronet of Maiming
Defense: 30
Durability: 21 of 30
Required Level: 37
Item Version: Expansion
Item Level: 87
Fingerprint: 0x9cf91ca
+20 to Maximum Damage
All Resistances +25

Prefix 1113 Coronet of Maiming
Defense: 32
Durability: 26 of 30
Required Level: 37
Item Version: Expansion
Item Level: 87
Fingerprint: 0x42d37766
+20 to Maximum Damage
+3 to Passive and Magic Skills (Amazon Only)


I know the basic good mods to look for (+Skills, Life Everlasting, Chromatic, Magus), but what I am asking is, SPECIFICALLY, are there any builds out there that really benefit from (or absolutely need) a certain magic Circlet? The odds of me finding a steady rack like this again any time in the near future are pretty slim, so I want to make sure I cover all my bases.

If anyone has any input on "must-haves", or at least the top 5 or so that are worth putting in the time to get (as well as the builds that use them), I would REALLY appreciate it. Alternatively, if there are any "oddball" ones that you have a build for, but aren't much good for general use, let me know and I'll keep an eye out for ya.

+2 Assassin / +3 Shadow / +3 Trap and 20FCR
+2 Necro/ +3 P&B/ and 20FCR
+3 Druid Elemental and 20FCR
+2 Sorc / +3 any tree and 20FCR

Magic are ofter preferable to rare in these cases. Getting two sockets from Larzuk means that you can get 40FHR on the circlet, which is important in PvP for the Necro, Druid and Sorc. For the assassin the same is true, but for IAS jewels.

If they only get one socket the value goes down considerably. Shame about the 1.07 Jewelers prefix though.

I have no particalar combinations in mind, but you should run that rack for some time, see what comes up. You might be surprised.

[All resistances/Some Pally Skills] Ciclet of [Damage Reduced by]
with 2 sockets is awesome for a damage reduced Pally (or any class, really)
(that's probably Chromatic Circlet of Life Everlasting, to lazy to check)

Same goes for mimimum damage builds, and I think in this case 1.07 could outperform 1.13c.

Re: The Most Wonderful Blue Circlets

I would worry most about any juicy +3 to skill tree Coronets that would suit you. +2 to all skills can be found on Rares. (And although you can rack Rares, it's probably not worth your time.)

In my case, that would be...

+3 to assassin traps / 20fcr or 100 life
+3 to sorc lightning / 20fcr

Remember to move any Coronets found forward (past 1.07) before socketing via Larzuk if you want the chance at more than 1 socket!

Re: The Most Wonderful Blue Circlets

Definitely a cool sorc circlet.

I'd actually look for a specific rare circlet to try and take advantage of particular mods that don't spawn on circlets anymore:

+2 Necro Skill
100% HCMTF
+21-30% Res All
+21-30 Strength
+41-60 Life
4-7 PDR

That would make for a very sick daggermancer circlet, not necessarily because of it's power (one with a second socket instead of HCMTF would do more damage), but HCMTF is a fantastic survival mod for daggermancers and having 100% on a circlet would break the weapon options wide open.
