    Fashion victim seeking help

    As a girl I love to dress up for the occassion. But I'm reaching a point that I'm becoming a fashion victim. Different designers - like Demog, ElitistJerks and also the new kid on the block Warscar - claim different looks to be the hottest fashion trend in town. Although i used to have a sound sense for fashion, I'm starting to get lost. Need advice on what to wear to what occassion, before I show up in a vintage dress to a bbq or a jeans to a wedding.

    Or even better, help me understand why they favor one piece over another

    *edit* Made a list for myself with different ensembles to wear for different occasions, based on all other lists. This is the result:

    I notice only 1 Dreadnaought item in "Fixed" so since you only have the gloves to match thats going to be a good idea for any fight where your damage or threat plays a role. The Callous hearted gloves are better for avoidance but passing on 10% shield block? shudder

    I would generically perfer thane's for the meta

    legs - just wear dragons brood for anything that hits hard - Add the Inescapable death to your trash/ shield block value set - and possibly wear to raves

    Shields - Hero's surrender is your best wear it almost all the time but the Skull of ruin is a superior shield for trash.

    belts - those 2 are so close. I gemmed by waitsguard with 2 Defense Gems and the Aligned girdle with a stam (assuming buckles) that lets me switch stuff around and use the belt to cover the defense difference.

    Cute post.

    Anyways, all lists are subjective. Due to the fact that hit and expertise are the new thing on almost all gear, there are way more stats to use then a 3-mod stat budget.

    In which case, it needs a personal touch as to decide what best suits your character. (for example, if you lose expertise for a better item in one area, you can perhaps find it on another upgrade.) In addition, it helps to gear for the encounter. For example, fighting loatheb or gothik? Crank up the block. HStanking Patch? Push the EH and avoidance. Threat racing paladins and fury warriors? Need more expertise/hit. And so on.

    New take on a post haha, good style points. but I agree with conree that lists are subjective, it depends on how you rate them, how you rate each stat, and in general what your other stats are at the time.
