I am trying to figure out which is better for my monk as I level up and get gear, should I focus on attack gear or accuracy gear or a mix. I was looking at the optical earring and it gives accuracy but takes away attack so wasn't sure if it was worth going after it.
Well, you can also buy attack food. You don't want to consider food too heavily when trying to figure out what gear to wear, you want to pick your food based on the gear you have available. This is a little different at 75 once everything becomes available to you, but at lower levels you wear what you can and eat food based on that.
Optical Earring is the best earring until around 21. Beetle Earring +1s are a pretty strong upgrade at that point. -2 attack isn't a huge deal, and accuracy is actually super hard to come by at low levels, so I think Optical is great. I wore it on my Monk for a good while.
