ive got lots of gear sets: tp, vorpal blade, sanguine blade, idle, str/dex spell, str/vit spell, spell with CA set, headbutt, haste/blu skill, benthic typhoon, cure set, int set, pdt set, mdt set, utsusemi set and thats for normal blu. if i am doin aoe burn add in another pdt set, a fast cast/interruption set, str/mnd, macc set, and a dex spell set. all of these sets i made because i saw a need.
in reality, for starting, id go with: tp, ws(both vorpal and sanguine), cure, and a general spell set. get those and use them all. i cant tell you the number of blu's that have a tp set and a spell set but never change gear. thats pretty good for starters
