    END GAME? As in everything +12? probably garnets will help more since you should have 18-19k hp unbuffed w/o Cits and we get between x6-x7 the listed p def on shards w/ full buffs+reaper (so an incomparable+85 p def would give around 550 more p def per shard)

    However, assuming end game is like +5 3nv set for you then I'd go hp shards otherwise magic is going to destroy you.
    full +12 SB, currently lv 105 105 105

    A lot of this depends on what you mean by endgame. If you have +12 orns, +12 r9r3, etc, jades or deities would be a hell of a lot more effective than any other shards you'll get.

    If youre talking +10 r9r3 with good but not maxed orns, I'd say go with garnets.

    If you're looking at g16+7 or something though with g14 cube necklace and soforth, citrines would be more helpful so that at least you can survive a little more against casters.

    Because I can't stand playing melee classes

    Garnet are obviously better.
    When talking about R9.3+10. Citrines should not even be taken into consideration (if you can't find enough garnet, temporary use G9-G10 rather than wasting money on hp shards)

    But anyway, if you really mean endgame it's only deity/JosD (but garnet shards are cheaper)

  • muliermulier Posts: 305 Arc User
    edited March 2015
    the question aint really josd OR deity --- but more of a : what ratio of josd:deity makes sense. and this has been discussed alot of times already b:chuckleb:laugh

    I will surely go 8 deity (helm and robe) and 16 josd (r9 gears) with my stormy. Enough dmg to blast everything away and enough defense to withstand anything possible.

    In simulations this worked out best for me. Altho 50/50 is also a valid option.

    This sharding shouldnt be applied below full +11/ with +12 ornaments tho. will keep my excl. Garnet shards meanehile xD

    If you can't use JoSD or Deity, use +10 Vitality Stones as the next option.
    Between Garnets and Citrines, I would go with Citrines.

    Why pay 80m+ for **** you're just gonna trash whenever you can afford jades.

    Just use a mix of g9/g10 gars+cits until jades.

    That is indeed true. But only if you are just running around fully buffed 24/7. All these buffs will make it hard for anyone to kill someone endgame-geared, w/e sharded or not. Thats why I dont rely on buffs simply causr this offers 0 challange to me imho. I can surely recommend using deities for the stormbringer tho...but I wouldnt go full deity xD

    Prices are so bad on my server...
    about 300,000,000 just for a DoT. I don't think I'll ever replace my Savants with Jades.

    I think he is done now, but yeah PM him.
    Whenever he needs something (C-Packs for example) he raises the price to completely ridiculous amounts because he wants it immediately.
