So this is my gear now. Just hit 101 today and got myself a shiny R9 ring! :D

Now my questions are:

Should I go for 4 armor pieces and belt...

Or should I just go for the weapon...

I can't afford everything at the moment so I want to know what I should do first...

Thanks!

    Your wep is already pretty good. Difference between s1 r9 and s3 nirv isn't much. I'd think going for the gear first would be more effective.

    Unless you have everything to s3 the wep, then, hell yeah, go for the wep.

    Hahahaha sadly not :( I'm not that rich :(

    I was playing around on PWCalc and I do like the look of just getting the armor and belt...as you said my wep is already quite nice.

    I was dead set against s2/s3 r9 for that same reason. Till nw made that volume of cannies/raps a bit more attainable.

    Been debating lately.

    I'd probably go armor first. Your wep is already pretty good.. and really the only things you can do to it are refine it more or start working towards 3rd r9. Your armor would be much less expensive to improve, and give you a lot more bang for your buck so to speak. If you were planning on 3rd r9 at some point, maybe start getting just regular r9 amor.. otherwise I'd go 3rd nv and skip r9 altogether.

    Go for the armors, Nubreal. Your weap's good enough as is and won't be much improvement if it's all you can afford to get.


    Or you could merch moar so you can go for third cast everything immediately. ijs

    I was thinking of maybe some day getting to the whole 3rd cast part, but that would take a while.

    I have never merchanted in my life!


    EDIT: I have changed my mind a bit though. Just the 4 armor pieces and save the coin to refine/shard em a bit as well. Skip the belt for now.

    R9r2 weapon only is like what...1.1b?

    Well worth it if you can afford it. However if you're only going to R9, then keep your G16.

    Or for around the same price you can R9r2 full armour set, which will grant you basically the same perks as R9r2 weapon damage wise, (probably more) and defensively.

    nope the price is falling weekly, currently on dw raps are at 200k so 1200 raps =240 million and 240 for cannies I think 500 millionish to upgrade the r9 weapon currently

    ...I'm calculating R9, recasting and 2nd recasting since she doesn't have any pieces.
