Ugh, that's my debate too. Level 1 res sucks. I might just max it right now for PvM and change it once I'm maxed.
Is anyone doing the classic 99 int / vit build? I stopped pumping int at 90 base, and am now at almost 50 base vit. I don't know what people are doing for accessories nowadays with FS Priests. Safety rings? Zerom gloves? I haven't used the stat calculator because I don't know that my gears will be. ;___;
