So i'm building my characters (Reaper that relies on vamperism and condition removal. and deadeye that relies on hp from crits, and stealth to remove conditions and heal more)
and i'm starting to wonder about what i should be putting on armor. this is for PvE primarily.
My initial opinion was for Reaper to go full Soldier. Power, toughness, vitality. (basically be a bunker, switching between hp and shroud to continually recover the other)
and Deadeye to go Precision, power, toughness. (high dmg fast, but also durable to survive being targetted by the AoE spam/knockdown spam ANet seems to be flooding every minion with)
but recently i hear that a higher toughness, leads to a higher aggro. i'm also unsure as to at what point i should stop toughness, and start to focus on ferocity to help crit dmg...or vitality to buffer the armor more.
So i'm looking for advice for what kind of armor type, or type combination i should put on Deadeye, as well as runes or gems (i've looked at runes..but i'm wondering if gem's higher bonus to stats is better to go with?)
and wondering if focusing on soldier on Necro is harming me (i don't rely on condition dmg. and even without much focus on precision. i have 40% crit on greatsword)
