Armor sets ?

Was wondering just how many players carry and why? I run a 5 and 5 light armor setup which works fine for how I play.

    i have like 3 or 4 different sets on all my toons, especially my tanks and healers, to adapt to the situation.

    My main character, Varanis Arano, carries her full PVP healer set-up, a full PVE tanking setup, a random damage set or two for when I'm questing and want to do decent damage, and a bunch of extra monster sets that I think might possibly be useful for fit how I want to play, i.e. earthgore, chudan, swarm mother, grothdarr, valkyn, illambris, etc.

    Trying to do it all on one character can be a little taxing on the inventory :)

    Do you guys like any overland sets? My two sets are Spinners and War Maidens. It seems to me a lot of other sets are really focused on light and heavy attacks.

    I only run one set on each variant of my character. Usually that is Monsterx2, Overland/dungeonx5 and Craftedx5.

    Depends on the character of course but some of the overland sets I like are Hundings Rage, Mother's Sorrow, Necropotence, Spriggans, Spinners, Robes of the Hist, Warrior Poet.

    Wow, nice to see a vet still using those old set still. I like the 5 piece bonuses on war maidens and spinners. Since I do just overland stuff and exploring for map completion those two set work well for my Dark Elf Magic Templar

    I usually do 6 or 7 medium on stam, sometimes 1 heavy for passives. And 7 light for mag/healers

    I mostly use stuff like Hundings (training), Briarheart, War Maiden, Crafty Alfiq, and Vanus/Worm's Rainment - easy to get from exploration and bosses

    Looking to do group quests (Craglorn, IC, dungeons, etc) - just let me know

    Most of my characters double up as pack mules for sets appropriate for their role. So for instance I keep numerous tanking sets across my 3 tanks. Generally each tank only uses 2 or 3 five piece sets, but carries probably double this number, just cos... hoarding lol.

    (And yes, I have all the house chests and they are all full as well!).

    Only carry what I am wearing for my DPS characters, but do carry Zaans and Skoria at the same time for my magic DPS. Carry 4 sets for my tank (Ebon, Alkosh, Yohknakhriin, and Leeching plate). Don't run a healer.... yet
