Windforce with Str?

Any reason why this bow has str on it?

Also, any reason why there’s two crossbows and no dagger/blade for impale?


Strength on Windforce is intentional.

Ethereals’ whole purpose is a throwback to Diablo 2 items. As such, many of the Ethereal items have similar stat distributions, even if they don’t “make sense” with Diablo3’s stat design (for example, having Str+Dex on several items).

Diablo2’s Windforce’s has the following stat affixes:

+250% Enhanced Damage
+ (3.125 Per Character Level) 3-309 To Maximum Damage (Based On Character Level)
20% Increased Attack Speed
6-8% Mana Stolen Per Hit (varies)
Heal Stamina Plus 30%
+10 To Strength
+5 To Dexterity

Maybe just add vitality attribute then.

Would really be nice to have discipline added here instead of strength or perhaps big resource cost reduction similar to yang’s.

Would be nice for DH to have a melee weapon ethereal too, perhaps instead of the hand crossbow.
