What should I do : Gear discussion

20 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

Hi guys!
I'm at one point where I want to optimize my gear.
My base health when I don't have any gear on is 1348 (this include lvl30 health and guild perks that are not maxed)
And I have 141 AP


I'm hesitating between all those sets (I have the first one because it was cheaper to begin with) 
I am wondering if the additionnal +4 damages reduction, DP, AP are worth loosing 250 HP?

Since I'd have to upgrade 4 armors anyway I want to take the best descision to prevent any more waste.
And considering I'm working on getting boss armor (lol) my actual set would be broken as soon as I would change a piece.

I'm pretty sure what answer I'll get about this one but I'd like to have your opinions. I'm about to begin upgrading a grunil set right now :P
*Also, I took swiftness over adamantine because I can't afford the 25% one yet.

Thanks you very much for your help in advance :) !
And I hope it will help some people to compare without doing the little work :P

Just go with #3 and, as you said, switch one of the two swiftness gems with knockdown resist. Try to snipe an adamantine crystal for 1,5m and upgrade it yourself with red battlefield tokens.

I don't see any reason to stack HP at the cost of DP and AP, so I wouldn't recommend #1 or #2. Grunil sells best anyways if you ever get bossarmor.

I personally prefer to max my ap. I rolled with full grunil with the best in slot gems, I am currently sitting at 172 ap counting gurnil + gems ( 155 if not ). 177 dp and 8 damage reduction, 1890 HP and 1250 mp. My PvP / PVE performance couldn't be better at this stage. I can easily solo farm any place. And in gvgs I destroy about anything that stands in my way , except when I get greedy and get slapped in the face. :D

I am level 55 using full grunil and all Pri Witch/MoS. 144 ap 161 Dp.. You have nice stats... How did you get them? Next i want to ask. I have the ancient core belt and just got the neck.. I loose 4 ap to wear the set (current neck is Tri Bares neck.)  But i gain some Accuracy, also I made a 15 bronze dagger, but all the AP loss is it worth it???? I am conflicted with what to choose for pvpv/pve/bosses.

 

Thanks

Actually with the new update on Friday, the bronze dagger will now gain AP along with its accuracy while enhancing it. So there is no reason to not use it at this point.

I have x2 duo marks , 2x duo witches , duo shultz belt and tri bares neck. +15 liverto. This will give u 155 ap. Grunil 7 , redbattlefield power crystal 5 , black spirit crystal 5. That is 172 total. :) I never believed in accuracy in this game, so my build is pure power, however accuracy is veery handy if u PvP higher level players or grinding much higher level mobs.

My vote for full Ultimate Grunil(I use this personally).

I have used both your #2 and #3 combinations, and favor #3.

Have to decide what is worth more, 250hp or 7ap/10dp/4dr*, and for me it is the latter.

*each point of damage reduction is worth roughly 2 dp when fighting heavily multi-hitting classes(other witches/rangers etc), less against others.

Thank you all :)
Finished to upgrade my grunil yesterday and now I feel... Fragile xD (when it comes to field bosses)
Should I try to upgrade it yellow now, or should I wait valencia and ''force'' it? Because forcing it is about 6mill/10mill an upgrade.

I tried upgrade 2 pieces yesterday. One went ultimate with 4 tries and the other spent 10 tries and nothing! If you are anxious like me, get a high luck worker and just DO EET! lol

I believe you underestimate the value of HP.

Weren't you Agerian/Heves before? The fragility comes in large from the missing health and the EVA/DP mix from individual gear pieces. When it comes to gear sets, it is important to have a goal in mind. How you want to balance AP/DP is up to you however a lot of people don't understand the principles of tanking.

[...]

I believe you're overestimating the difference between 2800 and 3050 HP. It could matter if you're building some supporty/tank weird build, than again we're also talking about 10DP and 4 extra DR.

In yesterdays node wars atleast for our guild the mages are clearly the dominating DPS class. 7 AP more is HUGE. I can handle 250 HP less.
