Need help with Offhand gems


7 posts in this topic

Posted

So I am currently running with a +8 Jubre (Might switch to Helrick for some bonus acc in pvp but that is beside the point) and it is the one piece of gear that I dont have a crystal for. I am a bit confused as to what to put in there as there are some crystals that give +1 back,down, etc damage. Do these actually make a noticeable difference or should I opt for a different crystal? I am just a bit confused as I haven't seen any discussion on this to guide me.

I know you're talking about PVP. But I just threw a luck crystal in it. The market place didn't have much for off hand crystals.

yea for me I just have a luck crystal in it. Now that mediah dropped I believe they will now have better ones but not really much going for the offhand slot before the update

It's been there before mediah but as Crazy Mike said the difference supposedly is small.

Regarding the Luck, I was personally switching from +12 Zereth shoes with stam crystal to +5 Heve shoes with 2xLuck for grinding. I get another 2 luck from titles and 1 luck from underwear, so that's 5/5. I was also switching my Agerian helmet to Heve with 2xCombat XP crystals. If I was grinding solo (more dangerous to get PKed) or PvPing I would switch back to my Zereth shoes and Agerian helmet again to complete the 3xAgerian, 1xZereth set.

That was because up till now, I didn't really miss the DP from my armor when it came to grinding. Mobs didn't really hurt. So I put a down damage crystal on my Jubre for faster mob clearing since luck and combat xp were maxed. But ultimately, you'll want this when it's in the game: 
Red Spirit Crystal

In the short/medium run it's not viable to have two sets of +15 Grunil shoes & head for different bonuses due to the cost. And I can't use +5 green Heve pieces as the mobs start to hurt a lot. In the long run though, once you make your Grunil +15 etc, you'll have nothing to do with armor stones besides fail-stacking. Especially if you don't plan on having boss armor for a long while.

So you could in a month or so make another 2 Grunil pieces +15 with luck & combat xp in and call it your "grinding" set.
