A Closer Look: Crafted Str Set

I want to express my feelings on my new toy! My lvl 70 crafted strength set! I finished crafting my set the day after crafting's release and I am really enjoying it!
This look is generally from a pvp standpoint.
First off, you've seen these stats before! When you get the chance, compare your angel strength set to this new crafted set! You will see basically the same stats! But crafted 70 gear has more armor. Also, the weapon given in the crafted set has much higher damage. This mace makes this set really special!
First of all, I love the mace's design! Deserves to be a contest winner. But the stats are the goods I'm looking for! The damage is very high on this! Giving a 200-234 base damage it is the highest damage given on a strength weapon. Also the mace features a 1.1 speed rather than the, more common, 1.3 speed! This helps a ton when draining that Enchantress of all its mana! I also enjoy the crit given on this set! You do sacrifice one crit from uncrafted to crafted but doesn't make a ton of a difference.
My favorite part of this set is the given hit % per piece! This gives me a lot more options. First off, this can give me the option of a different build. I no longer have to have the minimum amount of strength and the rest on dexterity to recieve a decent amount of hit. I can maintain hit with more strength which will add more tanking abilities!
And now, the set bonuses! This set unfortunately only adds 3 str, 20 hp, and 10 armor. This doesn't make a huge difference at endgame. I have actually tried using a dex helm instead of the strength helm. The crafted dex set is actually quite comparable to the strength set. I sacrifice the above bonus, 3 armor, and 3 dodge for 7 crit, 10 hit, and 15 damage! I think it's a fair trade >_< The added hit makes you much more advantageous going into a tank vs tank fight.
My prediction: Warbird is going to be OP. The crazy mace damage and hit will help on warbirds make up for their areas that are lacking. And they get a ton of armor and dodge which makes them a pain to take down.
I hope this helped you guys out!
