Casual raider here running TotCrusader 10, Ony 10 & 25, etc. Currently I'm comfortably over the +26 Expertise soft cap, almost hit-capped, and have plenty of +DEF (563). What I'd like to know is given the gem color bonuses (like +12STAM in my helm) have I gemmed appropriately for my given content or should I focus a bit more on +30Stam gems?
I'd go for the two-set over the saronite plated legguards personally.
I'd also swap out hit gems for stam - being hit capped is cool but not essential and stam stacking is king for ToC.
Finally, Titanium Weapon Plating is non-ideal. I'd prefer Defense, or stam over it.
Two piece - bonus: Yep, that's the way I'm leaning.
+Hit gems? I don't have any ATM. I have +Expertise in any slot for either a +9 or +12Stam color match bonus and two +30Stam in my chest ignoring the +6Def bonus. (I do have lots of +Hit gear though: legs, gloves, ranged, neck, and bracers.)
Yeah, I'll be dropping the Titanium plating - nice for grinding heroics but that's about it. With 563 Def, +18Stam looks to be the way to go.
