    PLD AF Body vs. Adaman/Gem Cuirass

    I have seen many high level paladin's but i see a difference in armor choice for most of them. I have also heard that the AF body is a MUCH better choice because of the HP+, but still i see many high level paladins running around in their Adaman Cuirass. I just dont see the point in buying a 700k-1000k body piece if my AF is going to be better....

    Stats:

    Adaman Cuirass
    level: 73
    Defense: 52
    MP+8 VIT+4 MND+4 Enmity+3

    Paladin AF Body
    level: 60
    Defense: 47
    HP+20 VIT+4 Divine magic skill+5 Enmity+2

    and obviously Gem Cuirass(+1) has +1 to all the listed stats for the adaman

    +HP is all that end-game PLD needs to add onto in terms of stats.

    Koenig > AF > Adaman

    Unfortunately for those of us that just can't seem to land that stupid Turtle, settle with your AF. I run around in Adaman because I look fat in AF and I just look funny wearing my SH +Dusk Trousers + Adaman Boots + whatever.

    I prefer Koenig/AF/crimson legs. My usual set up is koenig schaller/koenig handschuhs/AF body/AF2 feet/crimson legs. (War sub)


    (NIN sub) I prefer to use Aegishjalmr/AF2 hands/AF body/AF2 feet/crimsonlegs or AF legs. (haven't gotten AF2 legs yet ._.)

    I skipped adaman because even tho it has more DEF and more enmity like one or two pieces than AF, the AF has HP+ which is much better than the crappy MP+ that adaman gives....I guess.

    ok here's the question that has always been bothering me. I know af > adaman on hnm's and such, but how about exp mobs? being a nin means i dont see alot of plds in my pts and when i lvl'd war i was mostly partied with nins or tanking myself >.>

    so how does adaman gear stand for normal exp mobs?

    Well, in all honesty....I could come to believe that Adaman gear is good for EXPing if you've got no plans for getting Aegishjalmr or Koenig etc...in any end-game HNMLSes

    I use Aegishjalmr and Koenig hands in EXP pts now, sometimes Koenig head depending on how much DMG I have that isn't being tricked onto me or something.

    But yes Kroeger, I think it would be good if you didn't have these yet.

    so the body pants and boots arent worth it either? i was kinda expecting the answer you gave on head and hands cause i know those are the most common, even the aegishjahlmer is easy to obtain in my linkshell since we are now tossing them cause no one wants em -.-

    ok basically i should have reworded my question

    for the body, legs, and feet pieces specifically which is better? adaman or AF?

    also, I think the af2 would be better than adaman for sure. but the question is about af1

    Why use Keonig hands over AF2 hands for exp? @[email protected]

    For exp I go all out +Emnity and +VIT, since mobs hit like sissies

    Personally I purchased the Entire Adaman set and tested it out, switching in pieces of AF and Adaman back and forth. The only pieces I kept constant were the Feet and Head and really didn't make much of a difference. I kept hate like normal, but my HP was severely gimped.

    Yes the Adaman has a lot more Def/Vit/Enmity but its not worth the cost since if you think about it you just tanked for over 23 Levels with your AF and if your worth your salt you did damned good.

    Ive noticed on hard hitting mobs during XP I got a small decrease in damage, but If I wanted to go for getting hit for less I would have switched to tanking with Earth Staff and screw the Adaman.

    To reiterate the ramblings: Adaman Feet/Head = O AF Body/Hands/Legs until you can get Crimson Feet, Koenig Head and Hands.

    I personally want the Entire Koenig set, but god really only knows when that'll happen.

    Asze.

    Oh yea, AF2 hands. I've got those, but I was under the stubborn impression for the longest time that they sucked. I've just recently taken into consideration, the fact that they DON'T totally suck and I randomly find my /equip macros with Valor Gauntlets over Koenig Handschuhs.

    He said in an earlier post he had AF2 hands~

    But yeah AF2 hands are pretty nice, +5VIT and the +3Enmity is great.

    PLD should wear an opitcal hat, a cooking apron, crimson cuisses, no hands or feet, and should have a random staff equipped.




    you will achieve these results:




    notice I did not use invincible!
