Default Gearing for dex as a warrior

Hey, guys, sorry if this has already been answered in an old post. I used the search feature to find a thread about this and there were many threads talking about dexterity, but not specifically about gearing for reasonably gearing for dex as a warrior without gimping your stats.

So, I am at 110 dex on Krystaps right now. Pretty darn low. I am missing the PoSky shoulders and ring which would put me up to 129. Do I add in a Cloak of Shadows (which would gimp me a bit by losing the stats from dire wolf hide)? Are there other avenues I should take to increase this? I could also use a +6 neck (still using glimmering mithril torque) and a better mask (Targishin's Bone Mask), but I am just hazy on warrior gearing since it's not my main.


Thanks.

Don't worry about dex. Invest in slow hammers / root nets + white dmg weapons.

Root nets for normal leveling? That sounds like the worst thing ever. Can take you a matter of minutes to blow through a bag of nets if your group is chain pulling.

try to get items like cloak of maelstrom. Nice dex, hp, sta. Silver Chitin wristbands are great too. Farming pp for you should not be hard with your necro. Every melee I’ve ever played I wished I had more dex, except maybe a rogue. Look up items on the class equipment page and sort by dex to try and find more well rounded items like that.

More dex = more procs/more Aggro/crits/more fun.

Here is a list of some pre-raid dex gear with procing weapon for your early 50s and before if you can afford it (don't forget to make enchanter give you boon of the garou)

Cloak of the Maelstrom
http://wiki.project1999.com/Cloak_of_the_Maelstrom

Silver Chitin Wristband
http://wiki.project1999.com/Silver_Chitin_Wristband

Matchless Dragonleg Breeches (or one of the cheaper versions like worked , reinforced or peerless)
http://wiki.project1999.com/Matchles...onleg_Breeches

Infestation
http://wiki.project1999.com/Infestation

Incarnadine Breastplate <--- sorry no iksar
http://wiki.project1999.com/Incarnadine_Breastplate

Spider Fur Belt
http://wiki.project1999.com/Spider_Fur_Belt <-- if your haste item isn't on your waist like SCHW or something

Carnal Pauldrons (easy to loot in solb)
http://wiki.project1999.com/Carnal_Pauldrons

Black Ice sleeves maybe....

+6 dragon neck sounds good, there is other stuff, these are just some suggestions

one interesting option at leg if you know any clerics who are trying to get their epic done, you might have a shot at:

Blazing Greaves of Fennin Ro

I heard dex doesn't affect crit rate on p99.

It's so stupid that this is "how it's done"

Even in a group, you dont want your aggro based around procs because:

A. XP groups wont want to sit still for 2 mins while you try to proc an axe
B. You probably won't be buffed into oblivion 255 dex
C. The difference of having about 20-30 dex more than whatever you have will equate to like .2 more procs per min, or about one extra proc every 5 minutes of fighting

Get a caster to root mob you fight. Done.

Root nets are super useful to have as a tank. But I never used them as a way to aggro mobs, they are sort of a ace up the sleeve to use when you need. It's good practice to get used to using this tactic as a warrior. Clicking items from inventory and swapping weapons all while assessing the playing field and making quick decisions based on the tools (Clickies) you have at your disposal.

Boon of the garou and a dex buff are attainable, and enough. There is no point gearing specifically for dex imo.

Not always going to have the luxury depending on the group composition. Sometimes you take what you can get, ya know.
