my question is quite simple :

When crafting bracers, amulets, pauldrons or gauntlets for a given stat (int,str,dex or vitality) : the roll of the given stat is for example 201-230 for pauldron. How come you can roll 300+ on the stat then ?

Same question for some legendaries like The dead man's legacy ( which can roll 170-200 dex and 170-200 vita, however you can roll 300+ dex and 300+ vita.

How does it work ?

It happens because there are different affixes. For example: Dead Man's Legacy indeed gives you +170–200 Dexterity and +170–200 Vitality, but it also gives you +1 Random Magic Properties. And that random property could have been Valiant for example, which gives the item +45-150 Dexterity and +45-150 Vitality. So a perfect roll of these stats would give you a Dead Man's Legacy with 350 Dexterity and 350 Vitality.

You can find the list of item affixes here:

P.S. The very similar question has been asked and answered previously. Here is the link to the answer:

Okay, i thougt "1 random magic property" refers only to +x in 1 stat, not 2, that explains a lot, thanks – WizLiz May 15 '13 at 13:33
