I will be getting r9 for my SB hopefully farmed in 6 months time. I was kind of puzzled and wanted to ask why do some AA classes such as clerics use vit stones on their r9r gears when you can get more HP with citrine gems? The extra defence is not much?
Also I wanted advice on what shardings to use; I cannot afford to gear up my SB with JOSD/Diety as they cost way too much for me. So currently I plan to shard all my R9r armours with Garnet Gems each; the helmet (NV3)and robe (NV3) I will shard incomparable citrines or citrine gems if I get better cape and helm. Will this be good enough for PvP and PV? Should I use vit stones instead of garnet gems for R9r armours? Or should I just stick to my current plan?
