    Does the gear you have listed also work well in heroic versions? Or is it less important since CC seems to cover a lot of the important stuff just as well?
    My take on "the grind": https://www.ddo.com/forums/showthrea...=1#post6220972

    Ordinary humans have inhibitions that serve as a buffer against what we know is bad behavior.
    However, some people, by blaming others for their own bad behavior, develop a thought pattern that allows them to override self-control in order to achieve a selfish end.
    - My opinion on exploiters and cheaters blaming SSG for unfair punishment.

    It's not much but you can slot a vitality 20 augment (from minos legens) to make up for some of the hp loss.

    Interesting to see how different players and play styles value certain stats differently. What sort of dire charge dc are you looking at with your projected gear?

    If I ever swap to dex this is a nice resource to build from. Thanks for sharing.

    Plus I have a lot to learn from your post formatting A+.

    Very nice and timely for me. I am trying to figure out what to tr one of my characters to and right now I only have it narrowed down to martial lol.

    I am very keen on trying out shards of mechanus set bonus for the repair proc (hopefully #s are meaningful r5) so was thinking bladeforged 15 paladin 5 ranger tempest and this gear matches up closely with what I'll need - just want to fit in the new ring with insightful repair amp and greater auto repair. Will probably go str/cha rather than dex but most of it still works - ty. The belt fits in perfect so I won't be so hard to heal even though the goal is self healing.

    Actually, I just realized that I shouldn't have put Dex-based in the title.

    Any stat will work because I'm using Legendary Collective Sight for Main Stat and Insight Stat, which can be anything, and Slavers Gear for Quality Main stat, which can also be anything.

    My current thoughts are


    Legendary Collective Sight (Main Stat)
    Legendary Umber Brim
    Legendary Family Recruit Sigil
    Legendary Wildcard
    Legendary Hammerfist
    Legendary Mantle of Fury
    Brand of Kalok Shash

    Legendary Ring of Prowess(Easy Mod)/Legendary Celestial Sapphire Ring(Need To-Hit)/Legendary Celestial Ruby Ring (Solo) (swaps)

    Cannith Trinket: Melee Alacrity, Combat Mastery/Assassinate, Insightful Seeker
    Cannith Belt: Parrying, Insightful Constitution
    Slavers Boots: Sheltering, Resistance, Stunning, Quality MRR or Main Stat
    Cannith Ring: Elemental Absorb, Elemental Resistance, Insightful MRR (Swap by element need)

    Due to what loot has dropped for me I am now most of the way into your gear layout but using str and arborea. Very happy with the results you have a solid setup here that should work for many people.

    The part of the family set feels great and with sharn gear I finally have a useful dire charge dc. The differences between sharn and ravenloft setup to me is that you see more flat damage and bigger crits with a sharn layout whereas with ravenloft I was seeing a lot more sneak attack damage even though I use scion of arborea. Being able to use multiple filigree sets at once is great. Prowess set plus city beacon set means red names are no longer as scary as they used to be. I can stand in front of bosses and not just melt displacement plus 230 prr feels good. Was doing fine in R5 sharn the other day with some friendly healer support when we had no better tank option. A dex ranger with the mark of shadows or someone who has a bunch of displacement clickies can probably get away with a shattered device set or just go max melee power in their artifact.

    So far the only thing I dislike is a worse ability to heal self and others but overall my character is stronger and should continue to improve as I finish the gear set. I may keep a pair of castigators around for heal swaps between fights and solo play. While I wait for an umber brim to drop and finish slavers boots; I am using a legendary pansophic circlet, cannith crafted sheltering boots, ravenloft belt for concealment, and a legendary celestial sapphire ring for profane ability and dodge. If artifacts are not exclusive I can foresee people having artifact swaps depending on what is needed. They definitely make chasing those 4 piece sets much easier for your average player.

    Default Gear Tetris

    I try to answer exactly the same question for myself as a DEX based Elf Tempest (12 Ranger / 6 Barbarian / 2 Rouge).

    My current setup
    -Helm: Slave (I Deception 7, R Fury, Seeker 17, Q C Mastery 4)
    -Necklace: Mist (S R Fists, Feat: W T t Trees, N Armor 20, WIS 20)
    -Eyes: Shroud (Tier1 AEM, Tier2 AEM, Tier3 AEM, Displacement, HP 70, Skill 39)
    -Trinket: Mist (E Holy Burst, T Seeing, CON +20, I Deception)

    -Boots -> Mist (FoM, Speed 30, N Armor 19, R Save 16, Yellow)
    -Gloves: -> Family (I Doublestrike 11, C C Infusion, Seeker 21, I Deadly 8, Blue)
    (missing Resistance (augment 8), Deception, Ghostly)

    I am still not sure which of the variants i should go for, as i am not 100% convinced on any of the variants...

    Any other thoughts are welcome?

    Where is Insight Dex and Quality Dex? (Slavers belt could have Qual Dex instead of Qual Con)

    Fitting in Insight of your main stat is the hardest with the Sharn gear. There's only one way to get +10 Insight and that's with the goggles(Collective Sight)

    So that makes taking the Dex goggles artifact difficult.

    Gloves, Armor, and Necklace are taken to get Family.

    The above one would look good if you could fit in Insight Dex somewhere... You seem to have everything else (Well, missing Devotion too). Pretty nice that you were able to fit in Mist set bonus. But that doesn't leave any slots open for Cannith crafted gear that could at least get you +7 Insight Dex.

    I have picked Q CON for the +60 HP instead Q DEX for the +2 AC and +2 damage, because i just found this more valuable.
    Instead of a high I DEX, my focus was more to try to bring in the Q Deadly for the additional damage.
    I use also Beasts Mantle as filigree set bonus for the extra +10 Natural Armor.
    Collective Sight Googles are nice, but from my point of view not worth due to the other lame enhancements beside the attributes.

    For situational healing with devotion, i use always this swap item:
    Hands of the Dawn Healer (Trinket) (Devotion +208, Healing Lore +30%, Magical Efficiency 10%, Heal +22, Blue Augment Slot, Green Augment Slot, Adherent of the Mists Set)

    I was never paying much attention to the Cannith crafting gear since Slavers came out.

    And I have still not concluded for myself on which of the 3 Artifact gear variants i should go for, so any further thoughts are welcome...

    I saw another option in a different thread... Making a note of it for myself... I may go this way

    My first post has me using the bracers artifact

    Wrist: Brand of Kalok Shash: STR 22 - Quality Accuracy 8 - Quality Deadly 5 - Fire Absorb 53% - Green slot - Blue slot - Yellow slot

    Instead, maybe I should use the ring artifact

    Ring: Radiant Ring of Tael Valaestras: WIS 22 - Quality Accuracy 8 - Quality Deadly 5 - Law Absorption 31% - Green slot - Blue slot - Yellow slot


    I'd rather have the Fire absorption instead of Law, but moving artifact to ring would free up the bracers slot for this..

    Wrist: Legendary Hallowed Castigator: Devotion +214 - Healing Lore +31% - INS Sheltering +27 - Improved - Emp Heal - Green slot

    That's a really nice item.

    So now, I've lost my Slavers ring.

    So instead I would make Slavers boots. I don't need Devotion on the Slavers item anymore, so I replace it with Resistance 14

    Boots: Slaver crafted: Sheltering 45 (for the MRR) - Resistance 14 - Hide 22 - Quality DEX +4

    But now I've lost my boots which were giving me Dodge and Insight Seeker.

    But my trinket was giving me 12 resistance before, and I can change resistance to dodge on the trinket

    Trinket: Cannith crafted: Doublestrike 17 - Dodge 15 - Insightful Stunning +8


    So net, I add

    214 Devotion instead of 185
    31% Healing Lore
    27 Insight Sheltering (that's pretty big)
    WIS 22 instead of STR 22 (maybe I could try mass frog now)
    14 Resistance instead of 12

    But I lose Insight Seeker +7 and 53% fire absorption.

    Pretty solid trade-off.

    I just pulled a https://ddocompendium.com/w/Silver_Dragonscale_Helmet which allows for insightful str/dex/int. There might be some others from the raid(s) that allow it as well.

    I don't think that looks bad at all. I'm strength based though, but looking at dex to see if it may work out differently. I still need a couple of things from the raid, so maybe that will change, but I was having a hard time fitting doublestrike back in on strength set up.

    I don't get to raid often, so planning around raid gear is harder.

    I will hold off on making any Slavers item though until we get more information, and maybe THTH LFMs start becoming more common.

    (Because that's the worst thing about gear tetris. Change one item, and you usually end up changing 4-5 items, and then you have to recraft some new Cannith and Slaver stuff... Slaver crafting is a huge time-sink)

    This is a very nice item with the +10 Insightful Attribute and Accuracy as well, but with Sharn Family set we have already Deadly and the Resits Cold is only situational.
    Its hard to find a best fit in all combination of the new gear...

    Default Thanks for Posting Thrudh My Brother from Another Server

    Bloody loot tetris... Took hours in a spreadsheet and this is the result.


    Part of the Family Set:
    Armor: Legendary Wildcard: Fort 214% - PRR 54 - Heal Amp 85 - False Life 81
    Necklace: Legendary Family Recruit Sigil: True Seeing - Armor Piercing 33 - Deadly 17 - Relentless Fury
    Gloves: Legendary Hammerfist: Insightful Doublestrike 11 - Seeker 21 - Insightful Deadly 8 - Cannith Combat Infusion


    Head: Legendary Umber Brim: Insightful Accuracy 16 - Insightful Deception 8 - Profane well-rounded - Improved Quelling Strikes

    Goggles: Legendary Collective Sight: WIS 21 - Insightful DEX 10 - Quality Resistance 4

    Cloak: Legendary Cloak of the City's Champion: Parrying 10 - Insightful CON 10 - Quality PRR 13

    Ring: Legendary Celestial Ruby Ring: STR 21 - Stunning 23 - Accuracy 33 - Ghostly

    Wrist: Legendary Hallowed Castigator: Devotion +214 - Healing Lore +31% - INS Sheltering +27 - Improved - Emp Heal

    Ring: Sigil of the Triumvirate: DEX 22 - Insightful Accuracy 17 - Insightful Deadly +8 - Sonic Absorption 53%

    Belt: Slavers Crafted: Wizardry 371 - Resistance 14 - Hide 22 - DEX 4 (Quality)

    Boots: Cannith Crafted: Dodge 15 - Sheltering 38 (for the MRR) - Seeker (insightful) 7

    Trinket: Echo of Ravenkind: E Holy Burst - True Seeing - CON 20 - Improved Deception


    What I'm happy about:
    1. Have 22-10-4 for primary stat Dex.
    2. Keeping the Echo of Ravenkind in place.
    3. Fitting in the Legendary Hallowed Castigators for optimal healing ability (for a Ranger).


    What I hate:
    1. Missing Quality CON +4
    2. Missing Vitality
    3. The Legendary Collective Sight's Temperance of Belief ability - which I voted for because I wrongly assumed that Rangers have Religious Lore (they don't) and if I recall the vote was super close. Sorry y'all!
    4. Having to craft another Slavers item
    5. No enhancement doublestrike, only the insightful from the Legendary Hammerfist.


    Meh:
    1. Would like more deception than just the +8 insightful from the Legendary Umber Brim.
    2. The Insightful Accuracy 16 from the Legendary Umber Brim is redundant to the Sigil of the Triumvirate Insightful Accuracy 17.
    3. Didn't see any raid gear that looked like must get (though I need to re-examine when new raid drops).
    4. No blurry.
    5. Put STR on the Legendary Celestial Ruby Ring, but would have like the option to put an insightful or quality stat bonus.
    6. Wizardry 371 on the slavers b/c no better option.



    And of course the scimitars...

    Nightshard

    Vulkoor's Edge (replace with The Fractured Elegance from the new raid).

    Why not Doublestrike on CC, and Sheltering on Slavers?
