To be honest after the beta I TRed my exploiter into a tempest trapmonkey (1monk -> 1 fgt). The light armor is now much better than robes. An interesting side effect is I crafted some heavy armor. In fights where there is not a bunch of spell damage losing evasion is not so bad, and for tough melee it is better to wear heavy. On my char its giving up 5% dodge for 10% more PRR (lowers incoming damage) and about 5-6 more ac which is at least another 5% mitigation.
