I would say for the most part my gear is better than average, but not uber amazing or anything. But the one area I have problem with with is earrings. For DD I have an assault earring and a fowling earring. I think thats pretty much covered (Not getting a suppa cause I have an Abyssal for my Drk). But for turtle tanking I have a buckler earring and an Insomnia earring. I figure this isnt bad, but not great. But as far as kiting, I have no idea what the **** to throw in those slots. Isomnia earring is still at least somewhat useful, but the buckler earring is pointless. I dont have CoP done (So no sky, limbus access), and I really dont see it happening in the near future. I've considered a Hades earring, but it hasn't been in the AH for well over a month and whenever it is up its always immediately snatched away. Any suggestions as to what I can use that isn't too hard to obtain or buyable?

I have similar issues that you do as far as kiting and earrings are concerned. I want Hades but am unable to get them due to other gil priorities and/or AH availability. I decided to pick up an Intruder Earring just to use for the extra HP while kiting as I don't find MP to be too much of an issue, even as a Galka.

Intruder earring certainly isn't a bad choice (not too easy to come by. Drop rate isn't the most generous in the world on a times spawn NM...) Only other kiting earring that comes to mind is... crap, idk... Bitter Earring? +5 Def might be of marginal use though probably less so than the +40 HP from the Intruder Earring (or +50 from the Cassie Earring, which is another (expensive) option if you're looking in the +HP department.) Only catch with a Bitter Earring is that they're also somewhat difficult to come by as the Beastman Treasure quests, as a whole, suck and as such they're rarely on the AH.

Edit: Rethinking my advice a bit. I'd take a Cassie over an intruder for +HP on kiting. Cassie works in all zones (past, present, ToAU, Sky (regardless of who controls it), etc) whereas the Intruder Earring is a bit more situational. Of course, it's free so...

The only thing I can add to the above (which are replies I'd have given had I seen them earlier) is that if you have a mob with some magic attacks that you're kiting, you could always default to your MDT (Mermaid) earrings just for those kites. Everywhere else, yeah, Buckler + an HP earring of some sort will work (reduces CE but a small amount, but it's something). +MP wouldn't matter, since you're either at max or you're not.

If you have a Thf friend, you could gear your pld/whm for mp and duo Cassie. Only cost would be echos and remedies and poison pots. Just let the thf hit, you don't want to give CC more TP.
