      What do you focus more on?

      With this I mean, do you focus on having resist? damage? critical?
      I focus on my resist and critical block, I don't really care about the rest .

      Re: What do you focus more on?

      depends. if i'm questing, which i solo. then i focus on damage, resist, and block. if i'm farming, i'm usually tank/healer. so i focus on resist, block, and outgoing heal boost.

      Re: What do you focus more on?

      I typically want a more well-rounded character so that there are no flaws in any areas-- too much resist with hardly any damage would be bad for an offensive player like me. Low power pips will always be a no-- how are you supposed to get anything done with 6 white pips?

      Same thing applies for any other builds. For storm they are all offensive with few defensive tactics, so boosting up resist would be a bad idea, despite the low health. Damage is the primary stat to affect with storm next to critical, but with most other schools buffing critical block, is there really a point?

      Ice and life are probably both more on the defensive side, yet I've PvPed incredibly offensive ice players which were putting my storm on the defensive. Ice is built more for the resistance, however. Life too.

      Honestly it just depends on which school I am playing as. Most of my characters will probably be more focused on offensive stats since I like to be offensive in pretty much every game I play. I can turtle if I need to, but I prefer not to.

      Re: What do you focus more on?

      My main focus is damage/resist. I'm not a huge fan of critical since I rarely ever get it and it's blocked most of the time anyways. I'd rather hit hard 100% of the time, than not at all.

      Different things at different times and on different schools.

      Everyone always starts by focusing on health, and then they move on to accuracy and pips,
      then resistance, damage, critical, healing and block.

      Re: What do you focus more on?

      This is just about boss fights. In general, mobs are no big deal no matter what you are wearing. I focus on resist and accuracy. If you don't take much damage, you never waste turns on shielding and healing. Critical block isn't a big deal either. Twice a small number is still a small number. Even though I don't focus on block, much of the high resist gear for pve comes with high block as well so taking a crit hit from a creature is still pretty rare for me. Just like I don't waste turns shielding and healing, I don't waste turns fizzling so I focus on accuracy. I don't find I need big damage boosts because I'm not wasting turns. I can get the job done quickly with just moderate damage boosts.

      Re: What do you focus more on?

      Being a death, I tend to focus on damage, critical block, and pips. Damage because the higher the damage, the more the health I get back from spells such as scarecrow or vampire and the faster the battle goes. Blocking because I'd rather not have a critical >7 pip spell sneak through. And pips because having to wait that one extra round to attack because you got a white pip last time could mean the difference between a finished battle and getting hit with an efreet or earthquake or (grumble grumble) a myth imp on the round right before you attack.

      Next come critical, accuracy, and resistance. A good chance of a critical is good and it usually ends the battle right then, and the only time I really have to consider it being blocked is when fighting the level 13 and 14 bosses. More accuracy is always good, but once I reach 100% total accuracy, I will never fizzle without the help of a mantle or whatever, and I can turn my attention elsewhere. Some resistance is always good, but I don't really need all that much because I can use a draining attack to recover any lost health. Still, it's useful for surviving some of the bosses, and if I come across a real tough one like Belloq or the Jabberwock and I'm alone (which is almost all the time), I just put on some resistance stuff. I won't hit very hard unless I put on a ton of blades, and it will take a lot longer, but I'll survive.

      Then come healing, piercing, and stun resistance. For me, healing isn't all that useful unless I'm in a group and I'm the tank. Some piercing is always good. Who wouldn't want to cut right though those fortifys and tower shields? But I won't focus on it. If something gives me piercing, great, but if something has a lot of good stats and no piercing, I won't discard it just for that. And as for stun resistance, well there's always conviction. Train it if you want to endure PvP, buy a few TCs, or you could even try to get it as a pet talent. Though I consider empowerment or the Azteca auras like virulence, or vengeance much more useful as a pet talent.
