    Went through and bought some of these.

    although I noticed something:

    Feet: Cobalt-Plated Caligae (HP)

    Those feet don't give HP?

    I personally went with Vit/Dex (wathman's vigil). Partially because I feel STR value for ARC is next to none. More so though in preperation for the upcomming job of bard. (the only reason I leveled ARC) Due to the fact that Vit will be the modifier of the bard buffs.

    You don't expect to be wearing the BRD gear when BRD is out?

    I don't expect anything of that nature here. They way I see it, surviveability is always good. But, I see not reason, in my experience to favor STR over VIT on an archer at the moment, just my take on it. All I was getting at is that as far as bard is concerned, there is no downside to it.

    Unless they are going to stand outside the city gates and hand out Job specific gear, I would guess it will be quest or mob drops. Either of which may mean it will take time collect a set. Not to mention, if its not meldable, it very well, may be of lesser value stat wise anyway. Similar a good deal of non-tradeable/non-non-meldable gear we have now.
