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?
Love me long time.

I've noticed that Condition damage you get from equipment is so low that it's always a better option to go Power/Precision.

I mean I can choose between +1 bleeding damage over 5 second or +1 damage with every attacks.

Easy choice.

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.

You can mouse over the tooltip of your ability and it will show updated damage numbers affected by your stats.
