I'm just about to hit level 122, and looking to upgrade some of my gear. Gloves and Boots will probably be easiest I'm thinking since those are sacred crafts. I haven't found a crossbow to craft yet.
What stats are best to look for when doing crafting?
If you're not using one of the SUs yet, then you should definitely try to find a Stinger crossbow or Trebuchet to craft with. Just oll it with good damage (few hundred flat and some ED) and it will already outperform Starkiller.
Later on when you're looking for a tasty craft, you'll want high max damage (300+), some ED% (anywhere 70+ is fine) and a good proc (Knife throw/Time strike on striking or Shower of Rocks/Spike nova on kill). Necro skills and MF are a bonus on top. Depending on the amount of ED the weapon has, use either Intimidating/Weird shrine (if ED<170%~) or Creepy shrine to bless it.
For gloves, use creepy shrines and aim for the usual good stuff (Strength, ED%, Life, MF, resists, FHR, damage, experience, -enemy fire res) and for boots, the same as gloves except they can also roll up to +2 nec skill levels and the movement speed% varies (try to aim for 30+)
