    Market Opportunity

    Food for thought.

    Since Demon Hunters are forced into using Bows and Crossbow that might be a market that can be explored. While it possible to build a melee DH they are far from optimal.

    All other classes can use all weapons. That means Bows will have extra value to DH.

    Hmm, has anyone done a study of the likelihood of each type of weapon dropping?

    One thing to consider, for instance, is how many different common weapon tiers are there? Axes get 22, but hand crossbows get 25. There are 15 two handed axes, but 18 regular bows. Maybe this means ranged weapons will be more common by some degree.

    You cant choose your drops tho. The only place.this has a meaning is of you buy and resell and its better to not sell bows because.you target a widr audience. Its all about what random drops.you get.

    everyone cant use everything though: barbs cant use bows or staves, sorcs cant use polearms, dh cant use 2h melee weapons at all, wd can use 2h staves but not 1h wands to name a few. Thats in addition to the class specific items- dh are the only ones who can use 1h xbows/quivers, barbs the only ones to use might weapons, monks use fists, wd's have their special daggers and wangas or whatever etc. so choose what you craft carefully, maybe you notice that fist weapons arnt essential to your monks build, and that barbs are paying a fortune for maces with the right blend of affixes (crit!), so roll up a stack of maces, use the best for yourself and sell off the chaff.

    FYI there are many DH viable builds centered around using a Melee weapon. Chakrum build for example...

    I'm aware of that Grenades, Chakrum, Impale, FoK and all traps and Disipline skills can be used with any weapon. But losing 10/23 of the classes skills to use a melee weapon really limits the characters flexibility. After listening to this weeks podcast it looks like the Barbarian is also limited with several of his skills requiring a melee weapon.

    Id of thought selling items that all classes could use would make more money because you got more people with different classes interested in the item. So axes+maces+swords can be wielded by all classes so they will be easier to sell and for more because a wiz will bid if it has more dps than his wand because skills work off weapon damage and the only time you gotta care what your wielding is when your level 1 with basic attack.

    P.s Iv played beta and done loads of SK runs and noticed he dropped rare weapons what was meant for my class and never for another class. With barb always mighty wep, DH was always a bow, WD always ceremonial knife ect ect.

    I dunno if this is how it will work in real game.

    True, my wiz carrys a two handed sword with 20.2 dps, from the item database it appears that lvl 60 wands do not have anywhere near the same dps as swords or axes. Its not viable for a wiz to use a wand.
