I talked with Cheekymunky and decided to post up some basic info on what stats to gain on leading up to going into Moria. Afterwards, items balance out pretty well. Here's the low-down:
RK, Mini, LM are Will/Fate/Tact mastery.
Burg, Ward, and Hunters are Agi, Phys Mastery, and crit rating.
Champ, Captains, and Guards are Vit and might.
If anyone has anything else to add, please do so! Hope this helps anyone that's working on alts and don't know what kind of gear to use!
