I am not a new player, but I still have issues when looking at two pieces of items and deciding which is better. I also am having a hard time deciding if I should continue crafting. My post will be all over the place so here are some random questions. Item Stat Recognition Is there some sort of hierarchy of stats on weapons and armor? Basically one or two statistics you see that makes it stand out from the rest? For example my Paladin has the Soul Seeker: Weight: 9 Stones Hit Stamina Leech 40% Hit Mana Leech 30% Hit Life Leech 30% Repond Slayer Swing Speed Increase 60% Cold Damage 100% Weapon Damage 12 - 14 Weapon Speed 2.5s Strength Requirement 20 One-Handed Weapon Skill Required: Swordsmanship Durability 255 I know this is an awesome weapon. Is it the best in the game? And how would I tell? Is "Hit Life Leech 30%" they key stat that makes this weapon great? Crafting I have an alt who is a blacksmith. Why? My Paladin has the virtue armor set with the aforementioned Soul Seeker and the Shield Of Invulnerability. Can I ever craft anything better than that? I also have an archer with 70% physical resist. Should I even bother with tailoring on my alt?
