Default PvP gear

Looking for some new PvP gear, I don't want to finish 40e though because of medal prices and don't want to start on 50e for the same reason.

So, would 55 gold pvp armor be worth it? I have the plats for it and just need the AP. I'd also like to get the 55 PvP tome.

Good idea?

Thanks

No. 50 elite is cheaper and better in ever stat except MR. Save plat medals for eternal accessories / weapon and get 50 elite

This is incorrect.

55 AP gold > 50e.

Especially now since the 55 gloves are far superior to the 50 ones due to casting speed and you'd lose the 50e set bonuses by going 55 gloves anyway. I wouldn't even bother with the 50e set anymore, and the 55 eternal is far too pricey for a small stat increase. You're far better off just going 55 eternal accessories if you really want to deck out.

50 elite has 1056 hp, 55 gold has 416

50 elite has 221 magic boost, 55 gold has 194

50 elite has 38 magic accuracy, 55 gold has 0

50 elite has 486 MR, 55 gold has 516

8% casting speed is hardly noticible, let alone worth dropping obviously superior stats while still getting 8% attack speed which is far from useless. tell me how I am incorrect, idiot

And how much PVP damage reduction u lose for those 600hp?

8% casting speed is VERY noticable while 8% atk speed hardly is.

I think i'll go with 55 gold not sure yet.

When losing an argument, call people names. That always seems to work.

8% casting speed is far more important than 8% attack speed and any sorc worth his salt knows this, sorry champ. Attack speed is a nice stat but vastly inferior to casting speed, especially for players on the Elyos side. The ability to put in level 70 stones in in the future is a nice bonus for the 55 set, the fact that you don't have to rely on set bonuses is nice, and more PVP damage reduction is far more important than HP for PVP. 55 also has siginificantly more physical defense and evasion and as you did bother to mention, 25 more magic resistance.

to each his own. I've been trying to convince people that 55 gold armor is not better than 50 elite since before 2.0 even came out but I guess none of you are able to use logic.

Oh c'mon, you can be more condescending than this.

"to each his own, but you're illogical and i'm right!"

Facts are damned stubborn things.

1. lvl 70 manastones, you're trolling, that is not even something to consider lol.

2. 0.7% pvp damage reduction makes up for the 640 HP difference how?

3. physical def and evasion are worthless for sorcs.

4. 25 MR, only thing the 55 gold has over 50e and it's not that big of a difference.

save your plats, get 50e

if you're in an HP set 55 gloves are debatable still IMO. there IS a difference, if you're MR full 50e no question.

Took a long thought about this, but I've decided to go with 55 pvp gear (gold)

I really don't want to spend 350mil+ on medals and then worry about socketing/enchanting afterwords.

The 506 HP would be nice, and I'm sure I'd get more MB from the 50e.

People are telling me to socket HP/MA/MR but I don't know if that's what I should do. Just worried about gear at the moment, and plats are easy for me to get. Gonna start with getting the 55 tome, then gear, and I'll get the 50 accessories.
