I have a lvl 50 DPS huntress, and I've just been using whatever items I find in the shops. I was reading some of the topics and they mention giraffes, special pets, etc..Is there a guide or FAQ online someone could link me too? Or any tips anyone can give me? I've just been doing the campaign by the way, trying to beat them all on hard ( and eventually insane difficulty).
The high end armors are easiest to find on Ramparts or above on insane. These will have 20upgrades and +9stats (player and or tower depending on your build preference)
For high end weapons: http://dungeondefenders.wikia.com/wiki/Perfect_Drop_Compendium
That's actually for the PC, but the numbers are somewhat close and it tells you what level to find the weapon on. The major ones missing from it are the drops from Alchemy Laboratory on Insane, namely the Huntress and Squire weapons which can be two of the best weapons for their respective classes.
