Are affixes in a specific item type rare enough to make an item highly desirable?

For example, and I'm making this up, is +INT on pants rarer than +INT on 1-Hand weapons?

Are some affixes so much rarer than others that just by seeing them I should know it would sell for high amounts of gold in the AH?

I'm actually looking for ways to quickly and at a glance know if I can sell an item easily for millions of gold, instead of having to manually search for similar items and see for how much they sell.

  • Currently, it seems items require a "trifecta" of attack speed, crit chance, and crit damage in order to be worth much of anything. Primary stat and vit on top of that is pure gravy.

  • @fbueckert no, not really. Trifecta makes it highly desirable, but for gloves just having 2 out of the three with dual stat or single stat + res already makes it super expensive.

  • and afaik there's no such thing as 'rarity' of affixes. They all appear equally likely, but some affixes are more desirable than others.

With the way the AH has been flooded with items, there's no clear way of knowing whether an item will sell for a lot or a little outside of looking at the actual numbers.

http://www.d3rmt.com/guides/diablo-3-item-stat-maximum-values/ This website has the maximum value for every stat in every slot possible, so you can use that as a guideline for whether you think your item will sell for a lot. Obviously, stat combinations are going to play a huge role too, so rolling 300 int on a helm with nothing else is going to be worth less than say...200 int with 4% crit and an open socket.
