I usually use a shortbow on my Ranger and since the shortbow packs a lot of conditions, I normally pick +condition damage armor and weapons. But is this a good investment? Should I be using +Precision/Power items instead? How can I compare numbers wise?
since there's no scaling note on the tool-tip (i.e. showing how much benefit per point power/condition damage/healing power give you), you can just switch off pieces of armor and watch the benefit.
generally, however, if i'm using, say, three or more damaging conditions on a weapon, i like condition damage more then power. most of the time, power and condition damage come on the same item, so, i don't have to choose.

+condition damage is amazing as long as you don't run into something immune to that condition (Destroyers *shudders*). My earth ele can hit things once and watch them bleed to death while I'm going off and hitting other things.
