I have a mix 2pcs chiv and 2pcs lum on my mage I also had but sold a 30ap reinforced set the reinforced was more usefull then the chiv in my opinion once the + & - bonuses were taken into effect... I now have just sold my reinforced and finished farming a set of courage orlean that I just need to refine but from testing on my champ I can honestly say that the valor gear just craps all over the reinforced & honor when it comes to pvm just like honor easily anialates valor gear for pvp due to there bonuses
now when your talking reinforced gear I think its a whole different kettle of fish as some stats like 60/40 are great as the bonuses work for both pve & pvm there are other stats like 25/50 ect ect that are also great due to there versatility in pve & pvp.
in general if your pve only valor is the way to go as an offensive class I find courage the best especially when u add in the critical bonus
and a def class the dodge set is quite good im sure others may disagree or agree with me on sum points but this is my own opinion on what I have played around with on my accounts
