So my banks are getting full after 5 lives and I started my 6th life this weekend. I haven't kept much low level gear in my past lives as bank space is limited however I am buying more so I want to get a base level of low end gear. This life I did 0 gear preparation. I did this for several reasons but mostly because I have realized over the past lives that I am spending more time gearing than leveling at lower levels.
What I want to do here is Improve my toons overall gear for this life and future lives. Keep in mind this is an eventual completionist effort so I would like to keep as much gearing the same from life to life. My gearsets now tend to lean toward a thf or monk with outfits or padded armor.
I want to craft or collect gear for level 1. Other than a few Items I have (or may want to collect) I don’t want to regear till level 5 when I will do a fairly full regear. From there I just add these other items as they become available and swap them a little as needed. I know I want Fort, DB, Save Resistance, Protection*, Potency*, Power*, magic Lore*, Striding, False Life, Attack*, Seeker*, Deception*, class appropriate skills and class appropriate ability points, Invulnerability and my favorite at low levels Life shield (for real I love this enhancement were else can I get it? Are there any names items with it?.) Did I miss anything?
*As needed for build and class
I tend to splash rogue into a lot of builds and still have a few melee classes left so I want to focus on that for now but I will add caster class gear later with your help hopefully. Current life level 4 2rogue/6barb/12fighter TWF. Next will be for Pally with a monk splash. From there Monk, rogue, ranger, bard, Sorc, wiz, artificer then completionist ?
Not really looking at weapons with this post unless they bring something special to the table or require a refit of gear to maximize their use.
