hey guys ,

so real quick i have 5 lvl 80s working on 6 , not too much cash - 50 g in bank and good amount of mats / some exotics in bank . unfortunatly i have never gotten a drop worth more than 9 g. im trying to gear up all these guys to a good lvl (not full maxed exotic everything, but mostly exotics) and then some ascended jewlery

my question is what would be the 2 best sets of gear for each class ?
for pve and pvp -- 2 sets for each class -- covers most general builds
obviousaly this will not cover everything, and i will not be maxed out , but i feel it would be a good start, and i know some mix and matching takes place for top tier builds, but i am just looking for the general gear sets to start with

so ...

warrior -- beserk? , ????

ranger -- beserk?, apothecary???

guardian -- beserk??, knights????

engineer -- celestial??? rabid????

elementist -- beserker???, ?????

thief -- beserker?? , ????

necro -- rabid??? , ?????

mesmer -- beserker?????, ?????

i understand top builds can change with every patch , im just really looking for a good place to start as far as gear and weapons , nothing to specific

i think this wil help a good number of people who are also trying to afford a good build , its hard for us to buy gear everytime they change traits/ skills in a patch

ok thanx alot

For PvE, berserker gear is usually best for every class. You should be able to craft a full set of exotic armor for less than 20g (especially if you already have ectoplasm from salvaging). Alternatively you can save your money and get gear with berserker stats from CoF/CoE.

Lots of exotic armor sets available in WvW now for some silver and some badges.

Is there a tool for telling temple status on realms?

It's okay to enjoy crap if you're willing to admit it's crap.
Every patch is like ArenaNet walking out onto the stage of the International Don't Kitten Up Championship, and then proceeding to shiv itself in the stomach 30 times while screaming "IT'S FOR YOUR OWN GOOD! IT'S FOR YOUR OWN GOOD!"

Get rares. Most likely berserker.
And then depending on the content you'll do, consider upgrading to exotic/ascended, but I really wouldn't worry about it: PvP gives you free max tier gear, WvW is zerg so numbers are much more important than individual stats and PvE is either zerg or completely doable with rares.

If you are on a budget, then exotics are a rip-off.

For necromancer, you could go with a set of power gear. I find power builds way more fun than condition builds, so I'd say it's worth a try.

The choice ofgear depends on how defensive you want to go, really. I'm running a glass cannon well build, so I went with berserker, but for things like WvW zerging or some minion builds soldier's would be the better choice. Knight's would be a decent compromise, I suppose, but I'd choose based on what you do if I were you.
