I have looked all over and can't find info on the effects of useing gear thats a few ranks above or below your current class rank. I was on my con R13 that has a couple of pieces of gear rank 17 and 18 (figured to grow into them). My hp were in the 530 range when I went to do some fishing leves (at same rank as con). I took off the higher rank items and put on some fieldcraft bonus gear (rank 1 to 8ish) and without the 2 combat pieces and super low rank gear I now have 710 hp. The gear is worn now but I just bought it yesterday and I was never close 700 hp till I went fishin in wimpy gear. Any advise on different rank stuff please?

This equipment guide should have what you're looking for...

Basically you won't see the full benefits of gear if you're under optimal rank and the gear doesn't favor your class(unless it's generic). That HP issue you're talking about isn't so much about gear though. CON has low HP & high MP to begin with so when changing to other classes you're probably going to see a big HP/MP difference.
