Correct me if i am wrong but the entire idea is to have the highest AP you can...
Thats what entire idea is. And by gemming/enchanting for agi instead of pure AP you are basically wasting half of AP for crit.
Now you are saying that you will get 200 AP for the same as you would 100 Agil? I have looked at most of the hunter gear for level 80 and it seems to me that most of the pieces that will come out with the most AP are agility Heavy...Yes there are a few that are AP heavy but not many....Basicly all you have to do is add up the Agility and AP on the respective Item and depending on the other stats and bonuses on it you take the Item with the Highest total... So telling people to stack AP over all is very misleading....
Misleading only to you it seems. If you plan to compare only the amount of agility and ap on the item you wont be able to compare its usefullness for dps at all. Agi still gives Ap point per point so its kind of obvious an item with 75 agi and 120 ap is better than item with 45 agi and 150 ap. Usually the decision what to wear depends on rest of stats and rest of hunters gear, but if you plan to stack one stat - only possible control over it - you get trough gems and enchants
As far as Gems I see your point on the 2 for 1 where the agility gems are only 16 and the AP gem is 32 so the AP gems would be better.
so with that in mind the way someone should go about stacking stats is:
Hit (Until Capped 8%)
Intel (Keeps you out of Viper Aspect with the Higher Int)
The calculations you do on every piece of gear are slightly more complicated than this.
Always Gem and Enchant to get Hit Capped First then:
Stack Ap on Gems
Enchants are for the most part self explanatory... most slots have either and Agility or an AP
There is also Haste, Intelect and Crit. And now you are misleading people to actually enchant and gem for other stat than Hit or AP/AGI.
As for a spec...Taking into account what others have said on this forum I would say that this would be best spec
2 points in GftT is 1 point wasted.
