So, my Gladiator just reached rank 8 tonight, and I had a nice, new hempen turban ready to wear. However, this optimal rank 8 favored class GLD headgear, with stats of Defense 14, Mag. Defense 18, Evasion 11, and Resiliance 16 results in my stats being lower than my level 1 hempen coif I got from a guildleve, which has Defense 12, Mag. Defense 16, Evasion 10, and Resiliance 14. Now, I understand this is a complex game with a complex system, and I inderstood, or thought I did, about optimal levels and favored classes, so I waited until what I thought would be the point where everything aligned. Can anyone explain to me why this is not working, what I am doing wrong, or maybe just mock me for not being smart enough to play? Thanks in advance for all your help.
