    Assume you're looking for a suit or weapons like one you would build right now out with imbuing...

    You would be looking for:
    armor:
    Fortified _____ of Wizardry
    Arcane _____ of Defense
    Animated _____ of Defense
    Fortified ______ of Haste

    weapons:
    Vicious _____ of the Vampire
    Vampiric _____ of Slaughter

    These would be your core items, anything else would be filler.
    Tower/Aegis can be nice, but I see it as a secondary, same goes for Mighty/Vitality, Mystic/Sorcery, and Invigorating/Restoration.

    It's fairly simple figuring that out, what isn't simple is getting items with the correct properties. But the ones I listed above should be the most popular for building the base of a suit or a great weapon.
    I have yet to find a good (even cursed) spellcaster weapon, but I assume they would be either Arcane _____ of Sorcery or Mystic _____ of Wizardry.
    As for shields, You probably want to look for something with Vicious/Slaughter, Fortified/Defense, Towering/Aegis, Invigorating/Resto for the most part... finding a good one that has sc no pen (myst/sorc & arc/wiz) could be extremely difficult.

    Has anyone seen any items with either of these two prefixes?

    Prefix: Auspicious - Theme: Luck
    Prefix: Charmed- Theme: Enhance Potions (incl. Balanced)

    I find it hard to believe these prefixes spawn, I've seen Every other prefix/suffix out there, i've farmed way too much in shame to not have seen these items.(I have over 4k shame points and atleast 12 whetstones currently 100% was farmed).

    I'm curious to see how high luck could be on say a: Auspicious Buckler of Fortune?

    A prefix won't be generated if it could only result in one choice of property for a class of item. The above two can only be generated in their suffix versions. This is because the Auspicious / of Fortune package only contains the Luck property. Bows cannot have Enhance Potions, and non-bows cannot have Balanced.

    This also means that certain prefixes won't be generated on certain types of items. For example, "Vicious" won't be generated on armor, but the suffix "of Slaughter" can be. For armor, the Vicious / of Slaughter package only contains Hit Chance Increase, which is something the legacy loot generator didn't allow. There is no Mighty jewelry for the same reason: that package only generates +STR for those items.

    It is possible that the Luck and Potions packages will be used as prefixes in the future, as different systems and dungeons begin to generate loot differently, or as item properties are added.

    The system will not generate names where the prefix and suffix are the same property package, so an Auspicious Whatever of Fortune wouldn't be possible even if Auspicious could appear as a prefix. Similarly, there would never be a Vicious Whatever of Slaughter, etc..

    On top of that, even though item properties are now randomly generated with higher maximum values, there are caps on the new loot generator. It just won't generate Luck higher than 150 (or 170 on a bow).
