I am finished to 20 again, and I am happy with what I have. I am starting to work thru epics and I need some gear recommendations. My normal build is a AoV Healer / Guard style build with DR.

I am sure there are some good replacements out there but I am a TR-aholic and I have never spent any time on epics.

My normal gear is as follows.

Head - Minos
Goggles - ...nothing special
Bracers - VoD Bracers of Glacier
Gloves - Bramble Casters
Boots - Air Guard / SP Greensteel (ya ya I know should have been goggles)
Neck - Torc of Prince Rhyium
Cloak - +6 Charisma
Trinket - Night Hag's Heartstone
Shield - +5 Adamantine Tower (In DR mode)
Weapon 1 - Tier 3 GS Water Kopesh Exec +3 Wis (for DC's of instakills and such)
Weapon 2 - Epic Ornamental Dagger
Armor - DT with GFL, Freezing Ice Guard, and something else...
Ring 1 - Health +6 and some other random trash stat
Ring 2 - Wisdom +6

Thats about it as far as it goes. I am a very capable healer and a more than capable bringer of destructions and other such inta-kills and some very nast BB's and Comet Falls. I just need some Epic recomendations to work towards.

Anything I missed about the build that could improve it let me know as well...please keep in mind I am not a new player.

I'd drop the mental toughness feats and take heighten and another caster feat. I'd also drop shield mastery. That's enough room for two evocation feats or two spell pen feats.

Biggest next gear level I would say is getting a GFL +6 con amrath belt, and replacing dragontouched with an upgraded regalia from mindsunder/DD. That'll get you greater evoc and you want that for your blade barrier and implosion.

Also, you can always put another GS guard on goggles. Grats on getting a torc(I'm just not lucky in DQ).

drop mental toughnesses and shield mastry.

pick up emp heal, SF:evo, and GSF:evo.

I'd definitely go heighten instead of emp heal. You'll have plenty of oomph on heals without it, and you have max and emp to boost your cures.

Heighten is worth +3DC's to your blade barrier. If you take both spell focus evocation, that's another +2, and grab a greater evocation item (regalia is easiest to get), you'll have another +2.

Total, +7 from what you currently have. That's worth 14 wisdom

Since no one that read my post answered my actual question I will ask again. :D

What EPIC gear should I be looking for?

I am not interested in feat critiques...I am quite happy with how my spells hit already. I would like Gear advice please and thank you. :)

A FvS that doesn't melee really won't need much in the way of epic gears.

I use an epic ornamental dagger every so often for the clickie. Eardweller is a great thing to have, though it's not epic, it sure was an epic grind!

Epic bracers of the demon's consort is nice, I wear the regular ones. It's nice when you see mobs that attack you getting cursed and then taking full blade barrier dmg.

I also wear epic red dragon helm, and if you melee a bit, the +7 str is nice. The guard is always good, too. The boost to fire spells is kinda meh, but it's neat if you ever want to cast a fire storm just for fun (which I do).

Epic ring of spell storing is every blue bar user's wet dream, of course.

Here's a list for ya:

I talked with a guildie today and he said almost the exact same things.

Thank you very much! +1

This is exactly the information I was looking for. I appreciate the link also.

FvS Evoker seems to be the easiest class to gear up since nothing is really REQUIRED!
