Was debating on what to link and between Safe or Life since defense takes away from every attack dealt and after taking 2k damage that's all you get from a Life7 but then you have more Hp for when you pot and there's also a lot of defense from buffs and your shield.
Here's what I was planning on linking:
Helm - Life 7, Wit 7, Helm Str 1/2, Helm Shrewd 2, LL (Wit 7 isn't coming out unless someone has a good reason)
Top x2 - Ele2, (Life 7-Forbid 7) Craft 6/7, Shrewd 6/7
Leggings - Life 7, Safe 6/7, Craft 6/7, Fortune 7
Mufflers - Life 7, Safe 6/7, Shrewd 6/7, Lucky Lapis
Walkers - Sonic Lv2, Life 7, Craft 6/7, Shrewd 6/7
Shield - Life 7, Safe 6/7, Craft 6/7, Lucky Lapis
2x weapons 
Weap #1 - Ele2.5, Pain 6/7, Silent/Blindside 6
Weap #2 - Ele2.5, Toxin 6/7, Pain 6, Craft 7
3x max oj and 1x near max or 4x max for the gear would be on Hp/Str/Dex/Rec and Hp/Str/Dex/Luck. Weap would be Str/Dex/Luck.
Only 1 Fortune 7 since most will come from Oj's, accessories, and base stats in gear.
Around 160 from Oj's, 50 from the Fortune, 120 from acc. and then base stats from gear.
