The stats you get in rings are quite irrelevant compared to the AR. And 75 relics per ring for a versatile simple is blah. Priorities, man. I now have three characters with two infused rings each, and 6 more rings in my bank waiting for my other three characters to get some attention/get to level 80. The stats are secondary to having that easybutton 20AR on-hand so I can go into anything up to 30 with whatever profession I want.
AR is irrelevant for me. I pretty much always play at level 48 with my guildmates, even when i play with an alt. At this point 0 or 30 AR it make no difference. The only time i don't do level 48 for my daily is when nobody of my team is online or when i play with a friend low level in fractal.

Isn't it possible to survive Jade Maw though? Esp with a guild team. You could run 1-2 guards with Tome of Courage and a Mesmer with Time Warp to help them cast their party heals. Maw doesn't heal up when you wipe so even if it takes 2-3 tries you can still do even levels.
Not that I've tried it myself, good job getting to level freakin 68.
You can't survive Jade Maw agony at level 40+. But between 40 and 48 you can use trick to revive someone (ranger's pet, revive him to 99% and revive the 1% just as the agony kick in or use a revive orb), this way someone is still alive and can rez the 4 other. And several of these tricks were use before the path to do any level of fractal pass 40. But now, you can only do that between level 40 and 48. At level 50, you can still revive someone but the agony will kick in again on him. Maybe if you revive every person like 10 times you could pass level 50 i never tried and don't plan to do. The time before the agony kill you is really short. Maybe you could use guardian and Mesmer to keep someone alive during the level 40, but i would not help in later level (1 tick kill you so no reaction time here), and way easier and safer way exist to pass the agony of Jade Maw in level 40-48
