Default I don't follow my own advice...

My thoughts are a break down out of 100:

35 main attribute
25 con
20 luck
20 split between the other 2 attributes

I would also favor intelligence over your other non-primary stat. My reason being that as a warrior or scout you vae a chance of negating physical damage completely. But when it comes to mages you have nothing but your intelligence stat to help mitigate damage...

I have always gone Str for my Warrior. I have also used the rule of thumb on "epic" items that if I get a piece that is twice the Str of the strength I would replace it, e.g. a helmet that gives me Str 50, Con 50, Luck 50, and I get a helmet that gives me Str 100, I would replace it.

The gray(grey?) area for me, and what brought me to this forum, is that I got a piece that is +73 to ALL attributes. Do I replace my helm (Str +146) for this? Is it worth taking the 50% hit to my strength damage coming from my helm?

@ JohnnyStarWind - in isolation, that's very hard to determine. Going all +STR gear will give you lots of success against other warriors and much less success vs scouts and mages. A build where STR = CON will give you the opposite. The question is how far off of STR = CON do you want to deviate to increase your success vs warriors if you're maintaining a single-build toon.

@ DominicS - I think your equation is close, but will slightly undervalue your +all epics, and more so for triple stat epics. The loss in STR is more than made up for by the added attack power of LUCK + the survivability of the extra CON. I'd put the multiplier value around 2.25 for +Alls and even higher for +triples. 2.5 or 2.75.
The reason is that epics are good against ANY opponent. They are all that. Swapping them out for +Single stat items really narrows your power band to particular opponents. It's better to swap out +singles for + singles depending on the situation.
I DO swap my Epic helm for my +STR, and the ratio is 2:1, but I keep both. I wouldn't permanently drop that epic helm for a +STR helm until that STR value goes way way up. Likely 2.5:1 or even 3:1 depending on the rest of my gear.

NB: This may be different for scouts and mages, I only play a warrior.
