Indeed. Dont give away your set of gear. I agree sometimes you need to break away from the some-what monotonous grinding. But i still think you shud have soemthing you can use when you do get back. If you really feel like you need to give thegear away so it doesnt collect dust, get someone reputable (and look like they will be here for a very long while) to look after you gear till you come back, im sure you wont have problem getting it back. Of coz any upgrades in the set can go to you as interest. :D
It is sad that you are leaving tho. I dont know you well, but good shield monks are hard to come by these days.
Of coz, i would dream to get a gear set like that. :) I might not be able to fully utilise your gear if you give it to me tho, since im lightning monk. Maybe if i have enough all res combining your set and mine i can drop OWE :)
As for your condition....... im a good and trusting person. IT is hard to convince another person how trustworthy yourself is, but i think it is important to note to be trustworthy, you need to be trusting, coz the only way to gain trust, is giving trust. :)
Same as you i play alone all the time, so i dont really have many ppl on my list. The only monks i interact alot with is piffle and mojo. So i guess they can kinda vouch if i m trustworthy or not, and a "good" monk. :)
I'd just have to level up another monk and just slap this gear on that other monk to hold onto it.
I already have a second monk i can "park" this second set of gear lol.
