I'm Arms. I'm still confused as to when to socket for the bonus. I see some people suggest sticking to gemming for bonuses, and then those people that forget the bonus and go for 320 crit. I know it's a stupid question, I guess I've just never really learned how to do it, so I'd appreciate any help.
So here's a chest, the Battleplate of the prehistoric marauder. 3 Sockets.
Go for 80 str + 160 crit x 3 + 180 str bonus (420 str, 480 crit)
or 320 crit x 3 and no bonus (960 crit)
What would you do? Personally, I went for the bonus, because in previous threads of mine, people have said just stick to the bonus. However, another warrior in my guild just went full crit.
