What do you find yourself swapping in gear wise 30+ in FotM?
3-6 soldier pieces, depending on group & fractal.
I always play with soldier helm, chest, legs. The rest depends.
I own a full berserker set with ruby orbs, full soldier set with divinity, berserker jewelery, knight amulett &
Earrings. Back is the infused berserker quiver, rings are the infused berserker rings.
That way i have full flexibility in terms of armor.
In general I do asura, swamp & krait with 3 soldier pieces, the rest with 5-6.
Icebrood works fine with less, but here i'm lazy.
Rule of thumb: if the "tank/tanks" are good kiters i melee.
I'm durable enough to take 1-2 hits so i get a warning before i'd go down
My usual build is 20/30/0/20/0 as it supports every weaponset except P/D just fine.
As E.J. indirectly pointed out, what you need is hp - 17k+ I'd say with some toughness (doesn't really matter how you get it). You could also focus on toughness at the cost of damage, but I didn't like it. Our defense comes from not getting hit, instead of soaking damage.
0/30/20/20/0 is a good build too, I use it for S/D, although it does lack weakness on poison for SB, which is a big minus in my experience. Still, for S/D it was the best suited build - S/D is in general a pretty strong weapon set for higher lvl fractals & probably the best for fighting dredge.
