Re: question about item affix/mod
sorry i've been scouring this forum and trying to get a better understanding but i don't so i'm going to ask my question. i apologize in advance if this question is stupid.
Not a stupid question at all.
trying to understand how much an item can get of a certain stats. let's say for example...
an ilvl 63 glove can roll 1 - 200 dex as the main stat AND/OR roll 1 - 100 secondary stat of vit + dex. this means all of the gear can roll potentially both a main and secondary but the secondary isn't guaranteed?
The confusion here comes from the term "Secondary" used by Blizzard.
Dex and Dex Secondary are in the same affix group, so you can't get both at once. Some items are eligible only for Dex, some only for Dex Secondary, and some for both (eligible, but never more than one on an item).
However, all the combo stats (e.g., DexVit, DexStr, etc) are in their own affix groups so you can get Dex + DexVit (or DexVit Secondary) on an item.
my ilvl 63 glove rolled 77 dex, 8.5 crit chance, 35 crit damage meaning my gloves rolled a low main stat right that's all right. and for crit chance it can roll from 1-10% from ilvl 63 and 1-50 crit damage?
You are correct. The Dex value of 77 either came from "Dex 9" (alvl 35 with a range of 72-81) or from "Dex 13 Secondary" (alvl 59 with a range of 72-77).
Also note that there is no guarantee that an item will have a "main" stat at all. All the affixes are rolled randomly (within those that are eligible given the item level).
