str or str/int iop?

By bindi22532 - FORMER SUBSCRIBER - January 15, 2014, 02:32:08

Ok my friend has an iop nearing endgame. He is str so far but will be nearing endgame soon. And dosen't know if he should be pure str or hybrid with int? .
Also he needs help with a set from each of these builds cause he dosen't really endgame gear well.
So any suggestions would be great thanks

Bindi,

This is actually a question I battled with as an endgame Iop too, only I was debating Str/Agi. I went Str/Agi hybrid gear for a bit (By a bit, I mean like almost a year), until I came across another fellow endgamer and he was blown away by how "low" my Iop's damage was. After talking with him, I realized he was right... even though my Iop was hybrid, 90% of the time, I was using my Str attacks, but here I was trying to have a nice balance of Str/Agi points on my Iop. I reset my strategy to a pure Str, only purchasing "hybrid" gear if it was simply the best "str" choice. I am 100% happy with my choice, and so glad I made the change. My Str. Iop is level 200, has a base of 400 Str, scrolled base of 101 Agi, and honestly still does a pretty good amount of damage when I need the Agi attacks.

In my mind, Iops are meant to be PowerHouse Hitters, and when you begin to diversify the elements, you make them "OK" hitters in 2 elements. It all boils down to personal preference, but I highly recommend staying a single element, even if that means switching full to Intellegence.

As for gear, I have full Fuji set on my Iop, with Bouncy pieces included. Mainly +Str trophies, and Emr/Ging mount (the +HP is very useful).

Hope that helps,
Benjamight

Thanks Benjamight. Glad to have some insight. Maybe pure might be the answer. But guess we will see in time XD. So thanks very much.

You're welcome. My str. Iop was my first character, and has been my main, from the beginning (I think like 8 years now or so... yikes...lol). So feel free to ask me any questions you may have. Just fyi though... I'm a PvM player 99% of the time, so if you ask for Kolo help... well, I'm probably not going to be much assistance. :-)
