Its not about balance or what you like, its about making a character with more HP. Call it a project, hobby or whatever but the fact of the matter is he wants to try it. If your at home, look at the numbers and help him out.
To you Kiddo, knowing Spyder like I do, I can ASSURE you that is probally the highest HP you can get currently in the game.
On a side note, if you look at the Risia Threads there seems to be a helmet with toughness on it. Maybe you can get a "Also" Clone (thats his HP build) and get the helm before he does, thus in effect "beating" him. Well, for a little while anyway.
