Total craft character

Post by The Big Ouchy on Sat Sep 14, 2013 12:21 am

Hey guys I want to embark upon a new median experience and I figured the best way to start would be to open up an opinion thread to kick it off.

My idea/desire is to make a character that uses nothing but crafted equipment of some form from start to finish.

item types up for grabs are as follows:

Crafted items (duh)
Rares
Honorifics
LOW level runewords
Magic items (for low levels, likely will not see use)

No prefab items of any sort will be used. No Tierred uniques, no SU, SSU, SSSU, no Sets, no High level runewords (somewhat arbitrary term but there has to be a lot of MO room) of any kind will be tolerated.

Having said all of this I ask of you: What do you feel is the best/worst total craft character. Characters that thrive, as well as characters that struggle without prefab items will be considered! Discuss!

i have some videos builds that only uses crap crafts and tu's.. i always like crafting items no matter what, it feels me like its my own item LOL Very Happy
tbh there is no single disadvantage using all crafts , tu's and rw's.. only thing you will lack will be some things like itd, los and such.. which can be solved by other ideas and creation..
in the end you can finish all game + trophies with your idea and best part is you can still do it without losing so much time or in pain.
just crafting take a bit more time but surely deserves it.

ps: for ex nothing can beat lem rw sin knive with double mo bonus and some warbringer umos on it.. i used it when first double mo thing comes with patch. it was totally unbeatable..

If you have all equipement that are good crafts, that can be even better than having sets or sacred uniques... But, crafting every item until it's very good, that is one heck of a job...

Some kind of spell caster would fit to this. With meele chars you'll have hard times with only craft gear.

With good crafts, yeah... But with awesome crafts, not so much... Although, I agree with you that crafts are awesome for casters (like: 110% to poison spell damage Very Happy )...

Caster's can totally rock the all crafts look. Hell, they can rock the all Honorifics look.

Personally my favorite is the Poisoner/summoner druid with 100% chance to re-animate as skeleton. Fun times even though I can't see s**t most of the time.

Ha. I used to do the same thing with the 100% reanimate skeletons with my caster druid. I would just basically chill there and regular mobs wouldn't notice that speedy guy running around with the weird staff and antlers.

Sounds crazy fun. I just started a Necro Summoner on realm and I am going with lol summons Bane and Daystars,Frostclaw,Rampagors,Shadows,Embalming, Djinnsand Veil King. Fun so far. Not sure what items to use though yet. I have a few SUs but going the craft route can do wonders as well.
