Been a career RDM for 4 years, finally decided to level PLD and BLU to 75 also due to gear and merits it seems to be a wise choice to do those 2. (WHM BLM BRD too but rather give those a miss)
At the moment PLD only 40, and I am currently researching into HP vs VIT vs Def vs enmity.
For the first 30 level, I pretty much just loaded up on VIT as there isn't really much choice, but as it hit over 40, gear choices starting to increase and I am looking at different gear choice other than just VIT. Have 2 PLD friends giving me totally different advices, 1 told me to turtle up on Def and Vit and get some of the VIT pieces on AH like the IM Helm and such, where as the other friend told me don't bother loading up on VIT as the effect it has is minimal.
The second friend told me to as long as I have over +10 VIT I should just stop loading up on it, and use Voyager Sallet over the IM Helm. And told me to get the new Gothic Gloves and Boots combo from Casket (took a while but got them).
What I am looking into at the moment is VIT vs Def, or the general usefulness of VIT (if at all), and also is there a "too much enmity"? I am using Dash Sash (+2 enmity) and Resentment Cape (+2 enmity) at the moment at 40, as soon as I hit 43 I will use the Gothic boots and gloves for extra +4 enmity and thinking of using Mermaid Ring for another 2 enmity on top over a VIT ring (isn't much ring choice other than VIT til Hercules), is that too much enmity? As sometimes I still lose hate when PT with trigger happy SAMs, can get hate back but I rather not lose them in the first place ^^;
