I know I've posted one of these threads before....but I really have NO idea what to do now :(

My dilemma is that I hate my HP...and physical defense[link]

I was thinking of either R8 recast for the +900 HP boost for 2 parts(top and pants) or the G16 nirvana for the 500 HP boost(top and pants again).

I probably won't finish off a set of G16 nirvana or R8 recast due to cost issues and me thinking it's not worth the coin I'd spend on it.

What do you suggest? Also shard wise?

I guess [this] might be what I aim for at "super endgame" for me...

    Trade off about 3k pdef and about 1.2k HP for an extra 20 attack levels and an extra 15 defense levels.
    And if you're really worried about p.def you can always 2nd stage neck or go for a sky cover ring.
    But imo 15 def levels + 20 attack levels > 3k pdef + 1.2k HP.

    As for your shards, it's personal preference. If you feel that you are a fairly good kiter and you can utilize your defensive genie skills/apoth well enough, go DoTs. Same price as Cit gems on HT.
    If you really want the HP go cit gems but cit gems will rarely really save you, even full cit gems adds less than 2k HP on to your max HP I believe.
    Especially out west you should know with the amount of full R9 zerking HA folks out there and archers that extra 2k really won't do you much good in most cases.

    There's always cit gems/garnet gems for a balanced defense or full Jades for optimal defense but then again, I doubt you have a car around you can sell to get full jades so that's out of the question xd

    But yeah, as for gear I honestly would have no idea why you would get some of the R8 recast pieces over the S3 nirv, the def/attack levels on the s3 make up for any stats/bonuses on the R8 recast and could probably get all your s3 nirv for the cost of getting 1 R8r piece and rolling it's stats till you're happy.

    P.S Added cit gems to ring engraving 'cause laziness.

    Forget defense, you can upgrade all your armor to +10 and you'll still be 1-shot to R9's. Just get a +12 tranquility and spend the money you would have spent on armors for Ironguards instead. Should get you like, 2000 ironguards.

    I replied to the 7th topic on the 1st page of mystic forums, and got reported for necro. Plz save mystic forums.

    that shard cost me 1 mil. whats the matter? b:laugh
    when was the first rank8 sale? that top is exactly that old xd

    first i only used that top for nien-event and put a dot in it since they were cheap anyway
    (i used a first-cast nirvana +7 back then)

    but later i thought i like channeling more and refined my rank8 top... a bit..

    i didnt use it for most of the time since i also have a first cast-nirvana top (i dont use anymore)

    Still, it's enough to make people's heads explode with OCD.

    I still wonder why they were that cheap once, it's not like people didn't know what attack levels were back then...

    mainly because
    people didnt know how great jades are
    back then armor refines were not +10 average as its now
    so dot builds kinda sucked

    highly refined assasins driven DoT price up since they thrive for more damage
    i had to buy the DoTs for my assasin armor for 14 mil each :(

    people took some time till they realized that Josd is the best shard
    when it was hyped on forums in every built the price exploded

    Yes, but I still live better in tw with 8 garnets. 90% of my kills in TW are from archers and sins, so I left 8 sockets for garnet gems to tank r9 archers a little better.

    And I know how you feel with old DoTs in gear. My cloudcharger still has vit stones I got for 8m each that still raise some eyebrows . . . . .
