If you want to be a tank puri/ Sog ep . I had dumb gear with Ha/ R8. with def level weapon. my heals were bad but purify and sog helped a lot. I currently run around with 101 def levels and dont have any problems in a full mag build vit tme and dragon cape.
on the rank 8 top i would try to get 2x or 3x pDef 10%on the rank 8 pants i would try to get 2x or 3x mDef 10%
just curious... 101 deflvl basic or with blessing+rune?
