All on gear that is pretty easily obtainable. I can Unbound Craft everything I listed Cannith-Wise, and the rest... well, it's easy, too, and doesn't require stepping into Epic Quests or challenges. The only "cost" here is possibly lower AC, but we've already established your AC wasn't high enough to matter for the moment.
As for the Cloak slot.. I don't know. You could cannith-craft Feather-Falling of Resist Fire/Acid/Electric/Sonic/Cold 30, and Hot-Swap them as appropriate. Could wear the Tier 1 Epic Cloak of Flames (Heightened Awareness IV, Fire Absorption - 20%, Fire Shield (Hot)). You could wear a Prot +5 Cloak in content where you feel AC matters. If you have a level 12 Cloak of Night or higher laying around, I suggest grabbing that.
Also, the Bracers *could* be Hot-Swapped for Fabricator's Bracers (Cannith Combat Infusion, Incite +20%, Balance +10, Enhanced Balance +5), and you could unlock the Set Bonus for the Bracers + Gloves, which is +2 untyped bonus to both to-hit and damage. This could be swapped out in Party situations where you already have Blur, and you're less concerned about guard-based CC.
This is just a generic, first-blush gearset popped together that involves fast, targeted, pre-epic grinding to make your character all-around more capable in Soloing/Epic/Raid/Questing. This is by no means the "perfect" gearset, nor a final gearset. This is just to prep you for that next level - and indeed, you'll even find Shroud/VoD/that sort of thing to be easier.
I already have some other ideas, and will continue to think about them. Would love some input back from you though, OP, so we can work more on this!
