I'm trying to work out my long-term goals gear wise for my WF'd 18 Sorc/2 Paladin. I'll go Shiradi or Draconic depending on the content - I like both of them, I've already played Draconic and I'm leveling Shiradi right now since I've got enough twist points to unlock Energy Burst twist now.
My thinking is that if I'm going to be playing much Shiradi I want to have Major Arcane Lore and as much potency as possible. That seems to push me towards blue dragonscale set for the set bonus. I also sniped a wonderful 20% healing amp/superior parrying bracer off of the vendor in Eveningstar. That's going to force me to recraft a Greensteel SP item again but I'll deal with that. Here's the current plan to fit all that in:
Head: Blue Dragonscale w/ 3 insightful charisma slotted 7 con/2 luck
Neck: Torc/+150sp greensteel item. I'm not crazy about this slot for the greensteel at all but I don't see much option. Nice thing is that if I swap away from the torc I'm not really losing anything terrible if I forget to swap back.
Goggles: GS +45hp con-opp
Trinket: Free slot. Voice until I cap destinies, could cannith craft something in the meantime.
Docent: Blue Dragonscale covers 80 potency, major arcane lore when upgraded, Greater Spell Pen IX, slotted 35hp's
Cloak: Level 25 Mantle of the Dragonfriend slotted with +7 resist (gives an empty colorless slot) or EH/EE Ghost Waking Cloak (covers the 8cha/7resist as well and gives DR/Evil 10 or 15 - been hard to get this one for a good price though)
Bracers: 20% healing amp/superior parrying
Belt: Arkat's Cord (EN is fine) slotted with Deathblock and Exc. Con +1 - one of the only places I can see to slot Toughness
Ring1: Master Artifice slotted with Exc. Cha +1 and Heavy Fort
Ring2: Cannith Crafted +6int/+13conc with Medium Guild Augment (I'm in medium sized guild)
Feet: Treads of Falling Shadow (any tier is fine...I have the EN currently)
Hands: Purple Dragon Knight (covers strength 7, ins con +2, and 30% healing amp)
Offhand: I like the orbs...either magnetism or kinetic would be great. Have EN Magnetism right now.
Mainhand: Anything with superior lore (lightning or force either one) and complementary damage to my orb.
This seems to cover all the critical stats. I think that the Major Lore and Potency of the Blue Dragonscale Docent trumps anything else you could get out of other items right now. Once I decide to go there the helm seems like a logical next step and everything else is just trying to fit in the existing gear I have and the stats I need.
Anyone have any ideas or suggestions? Other than the grind of finding the right Blue Dragonscale Helm and doing the raids for the commendations on the armor nothing in here seems overly hard to get. The Arkat's Cord is pretty easy since I'm cool with EN on it, the Greensteel Necklace while annoying is fairly easy to craft up after a few weeks of Shrouds, and if I can't get an EH/EE Ghost-Waking Cloak an EE Dragonfriend makes a fine replacement.
