    Default Gearing a TR - I mean not realy fighter only but were else would i post this?

    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.
    Basic theory:
    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.
    This is what I have now and most gear is crafted with masterful craftsmanship
    Goggles: +1 Attack and a full set of +5trapping goggles to swap out as needed
    Armor/robe: Invulnerability
    Bracers: Str 1
    Ring: Gravnocks band LVL 2 for Resistance 2
    Ring: Lesser False life
    Boots: Striding 10%
    Gloves: Dex 1
    Belt: light Fort
    Cloak: none
    Trinket: Greater bold trinket at level 4
    Necklace: Con 1
    Headgear: Battered helm

    What I plan for level 5
    Goggles: +2 Attack/ and a full set of +10 trapping goggles
    Armor/robe: Life shield of Invulnerability crafted with med guild slot for 15HP pretty much use till 20 maybe add armor enchantment if ac is relevant
    Bracers: Str 4
    Ring: Resistance 4
    Ring: False life
    Boots: Striding 20%
    Gloves: Dex 4
    Belt: moderate fort / heavy at level 7
    Cloak: mantle / feather fall of reflex 5
    Trinket: Greater bold trinket at level 4/ voice
    Necklace: Con 4
    Headgear: Battered helm (I should really come up with something better ?)

    Later levels:
    Goggles: HP con op goggles with 9% healing lore
    Armor/robe: Life shield of Invulnerability crafted with med guild slot for 15HP
    Bracers: Ethereal/ Ventilated Bracers/ Tharaak Bracelet/ Min2 with sp and my missing hp from goggles
    Ring: Ring of Balance / Ring of Djinn/ Katras Razor Wit
    Boots: Mad stone/cannith propulsion
    Gloves: Maenya’s Iron Fists
    Belt: Belt of Thoughtful remembrance/Vorne’s Belt
    Cloak:
    Trinket:
    Necklace:
    Headgear: Minos Legens/ Teraza’s Perfect Sight

    That comes close to what I did last life though I do have more gear to choose from. Anyway what thoughts do you have? What am I missing? Planer Gird is main thing on my farm list at this point but what else would you add?

    Any help is apreciated

    My level 1, 3, 5, 7 & 9 gearsets are pretty static across all alts:

    Level 1
    Head: Wizardry II or Enchantment save +5 or whatever (remade each life)
    Eyes: Secret Door Detection (bta; passed around each life)
    Neck: Necklace of Contemplation
    Back: Spot +5 if trapper, Enchantment save +5 if not (remade each life)
    Wrist: +4 Reflex Save (remade each life)
    Hand: +4 Will Save (remade each life)
    Waist: <none>
    Feet: Feather Falling boots of Jump +3 (bta; passed around each life)
    Ring: (reign ring)
    Ring: (reign ring)
    Trinket: Melee Alacrity or Lore
    Body: Invulnerability
    Weapon: Flaming rapier of Bleeding (bta; passed around each life), a t-staff, or Ember Greataxe

    Level 3
    Waist: Moderate Fortification (remade each life)
    Weapon: Flaming adamantine greatsword of Risia icy burst (ML2) or a t-staff
    The greatsword in unbound, but the adamantine helps prevent permanent damage. (Or really any wear and tear at all.)

    Level 5
    Head: Magi or Enchantment save +5 or whatever (remade each life)
    Eyes: unchanged from level 1
    Neck: Health +4 (remade each life)
    Back: Spot +10 if trapper, Enchantment save +5 if not (remade each life)
    Wrist: Resistance +4 (remade each life)
    Hand: Strength +4 (remade each life)
    Waist: Moderate Fortification (remade each life)
    Feet: unchanged from level 1
    Ring: (reign ring)
    Ring: (reign ring)
    Trinket: Melee Alacrity or Lore
    Body: Life Shield of Invulnerability (toss Life Shield on prefix)
    Weapon: Carnifex or T-Staff

    Level 7
    Head: unchanged from level 5
    Eyes: unchanged from level 1
    Neck: unchanged from level 5
    Back: (toss FF on prefix of ML5 version)
    Wrist: Resistance +5 (bta, passed around each life)
    Hand: Strength +4
    Waist: Greater False Life (bta, passed around each life)
    Feet: Boots of the Mire (I wear Mire set until 18 then switch to rocket boots)
    Ring: Ring of the Mire (Mire set bonus gives 24% striding, verified with in-game time trials)
    Ring: Heavy Fortification (bta, passed around each life)
    Trinket: Melee Alacrity or Lore
    Body: unchanged from level 5
    Weapon: Carnifex or T-Staff

    Level 9
    Neck: Health +6 (remade each life)
    Hand: Strength +6 (remade each life)



    Wiki has a list of where to get BTA base items for crafting.

    EDIT: I recently discovered that the ML4 (four!) bracers of wind give 20% permablur, so I may try to work that in somehow. My trusty bta resistance +5 bracers have been with me for around a year, though.

    Great replies, made me double check Carnifex which seemed less than the antique Greataxe I was using. I wish they would have just called it supreme Keen or Greater Keen or something make it a little more noticeable Makes me wonder how much more I have over looked.

    I seem to have all the same effects you have suggested in my gear already other than the melee alacrity. I always liked Greater bold trinket till I just looked at it again. I guess the last time I really looked at it I was still a caster and +1 to damage seemed pretty damn good but now I see. I mean now that I am using Carnifex with fighter critical accuracy and seeing how often and how much that crits for I can see that +1 is a little lame when I can just hit more often.

    That does bring up one other question. What about Seeker what is its value?

    Anyway thanks again, I learned a little bit here.

    I have never given seeker its proper due in my gearsets. Seeker is huge; try to fit in as much seeker as possible.
