Re: Why are bows more likely to roll Witch Doctor Skill buff
I have noticed that many of the bows on the auction house have random Witch Doctor skill buffs. I have noticed the same phenomenon with Demon Hunter skills on chest armors and Monk skills on helms. I know that there are rules that govern how the server picks affixes to put on an item and I was wondering if anyone could shed some insight on what causes this to happen.
The client-side Affix data only tells us which Affixes can spawn on which item types, and what the corresponding alvl (affix level) required for it to spawn.
Unfortunately, what we don't know is whether all Affixes have the same probability of rolling as any other Affix. In D2, those probabilities (iirc) were not all the same (though most were identical). We can't know this information since it is server-side only.
