The journey (After twinking)

She had been my runneress for the Orange You Glad That Rune Dropped @PhineasB's tournament, but after a big break, I threw a S&E when I restarted her and made a big misplay. So she went back to twinking after MFO breathe to achieve her Guardian status.

Gear planning & evolution - Orange Tournament
Note: after a S&E, she eliminated herself from the Tournament
and twinked herself afterwards

Initial thoughts
For reference, the crafting recipes on diablowiki. Also, some formulas from Pb_pal's post in tournament's thread.
Best weapon piece would be a nice claw - or even pair of claws - with +skills. Sadly, no formula allows such crafting (unlike say spears/javelins for zons), so it will be a pain to find something usable/great.

As usual everything else is about +skills, so...for now, I am planning a mana regen crafting, or maybe but more unlikely damage reduce gearing.

And after a review of formulas, I am setting on Caster, Blood and Hitpower recipes for now...well, kinda surprising me!

Crafting formulas and detailed planning
Supply tables for a full gear craft:
Code:
Gem    | Quantity | Runes
P. Ame | x3       | Tal, Ort, Thul
P. Eme | x2       | Nef, Eth
P. Rub | x3       | Amn, Sol, Sol
P. Sap | x2       | Ith, Tal
For merc:
Code:
Gem    | Quantity | Runes
P. Ame | -        | -
P. Eme | x1       | Sol
P. Rub | x2       | Ral, Thul

Savage polearm recipe
1 Diamond + 1 Staff + 1 Kris + 1 Belt --> Savage Polearm Class Weapon
ivl = 50.
Creates a polearm class weapon with the Savage prefix (66-80% Enhanced Damage).
May spawn with a random suffix as well.
The polearm type will randomly choose from a Bardiche, Battle Scythe, Bill, Halberd, Lochaber Axe, Partizan, Poleaxe, Scythe, Voulge, or War Scythe.
And to get sockets on a weapon (should work for ItsATrap claws pre Act 2 NM too), but no way to get staff mods on normal bases so...maybe late Normal or via gambling:
3 Chipped Gems + 1 Magic Weapon --> Socketed Magic Weapon
ilvl = 25.
This recipe rerolls the stats on a magical weapon, setting it with new, random modifiers and 1-2 sockets.
Magical weapons that can not have sockets, such as throwing weapons, will spawn with new modifiers but no sockets.

3 Standard Gems + 1 Socketed Weapon --> 1 Socketed Magic Weapon
ilvl = 30
This recipe rerolls the stats on the weapon, creating a new magical version of the same weapon, with random modifiers and 1-2 sockets.
Any type of gems may be used, but they must be normal (between flawed and flawless) in quality.
Magical weapons that can not have sockets, such as throwing weapons, will spawn with new modifiers but no sockets.
Gearing evolution
Todo!
