Yeah it does, especially for folks like myself who refuse to buy gear in the auction house. Ammys and Gloves out of the 1.07 patch plans stand the best chance of producing godly results.

Once I discovered that my single hellfire ring wasn't level restricted I set about creating a new barb (never did say I was imaginative when it came to names..... ;) ). Took roughly 30 hours of gameplay to hit lvl 60 and I was able to gear her/it up as a dual wield frenzy barb due to finding both a socketed sister mighty weapon to the set item I already had, as well as finding a very tasty ilvl 63 mighty belt.

Just started inferno and needs a lot of tweaking WRT all res on gear but I have to say that I enjoy the speed of playing a dual wield frenzy barb over my main one with the skorn... pity the skorn provides an extra 50K DPS, but we'll see...... ;)

I swear I posted this already but I suspect it was a case of previewing it to ensure the image was right and then not actually posting it..... ;)

So far I've found the full range of plans for both the gloves and bracers, but have only found the vit and int versions of the shoulders and ammy. My young lad broke down and just bought the dex ammy off of the AH for around 300K gold, and I picked up a str armor from squirt which rolled 3 sockets and fairly decent vit to go along with the str but I was hoping for more.... ;)

I also rolled an intel ammy just to see what would come out of it and was pleasantly pleased even on a str barb.... ;)

The armor plans are available from squirt (little girl merchant act II) for 1.5M Gold. The rest can drop from anybody in inferno (might be MP1 for act I and II because I believe they're iLvl 63 but have a better chance of dropping off of select mini-boss' (Kuhl and gohm seem to be the preferred runs).

I couldn't find the specific reference but this cut/paste from a post will give you the idea....

Quote:
The Archon Armor recipe (the chest piece) can be purchased from Squirt the Peddler for 1.5 million gold. The other plans will drop randomly in the world, but also have a 50% chance to drop off the following bosses when you have five stacks of Nephalem Valor:

Skeleton King
Spider Queen
Maghda
Zoltun Kulle
Ghom
Cydaea
Rakanoth
Izual

its in the patch notes, but its not 50% anymore. 16% at mp1, and goes up x% per mp (ie 19%ish at 2, 22ish at 3, etc). MP5 is somewhere around 25%, and mp10 caps at about 60% iirc

If it's any consolation, I've had about 3 more of them drop since then.
