I have a necromancer that does condition damage. What is the best armor for this type of necro? It seems that the best armor would be the Grenth Karma Exotic armor that I can get from the Temple of Grenth in the Cursed Shore, right? That armor seems to increase condition damage with every piece you wear. Is there better one? Thanks.

EDIT: Thought I would add these guides...

If you're willing to buy exotic armor with karma, then indeed, the Mortal armor of Grenth sold in Temple of Grenth seems a good option. If you're looking for runes which cause condition damage, you can check them here.

Another interesting dungeon armors with different attributes you could take a look:

  • Flame Legion armor
    • Condition Damage + Power + Vitality (+315 / +224 / +224 Attributes)

  • Sorrow's Embrace armor
    • Power + Vitality + Condition Damage (+315 / +224 / +224 Attributes)

  • Corrupted armor
    • Precision + Toughness + Condition Damage (+224 / +224 / +315 Attributes)

  • Nightmare armor
    • Condition Damage + Toughness + Precision (+315 / +224 / +224 Attributes)
    • Precision + Power + Condition Damage (+315 / +224 / +224 Attributes)

  • Inquest armor
    • Power + Precision + Condition Damage ( +224 / +315 / +214 Attributes )
    • Power + Condition Damage + Magic Find (+224 / +224 / +18%)

  • Noble's armor
    • 3 combinations with Condition damage as a 224 atribute

  • Honor of the Waves armor
    • Precision + Toughness + Condition Damage (+315 / +224 / +224 Attributes)

  • Corrupted armor
    • Precision + Toughness + Condition Damage (+224 / +224 / +315 Attributes)

You may also would like to take a look in Ogden's armor and Khilbron's armor

Resuming: There are several sets which contain condition damage, you may choose one that fits more your play style.

Thank you for the detailed and informative answer! This is just what I needed. –  b10hazard Jan 10 '13 at 16:10
    
The dungeon armor seems a better deal, right? The reason I say this is the Dungeon Exotic armor has free upgrade slots, but the MAoGrenth does not. The MAoG has condition damage of 125+28+55+100 or 318. However the Flame Legion Exotic armor has condition damage of 315 and I could add runes to it increasing the Condition damage even more, right? –  b10hazard Jan 10 '13 at 16:25
    
It's interesting because I knew how to answer this because recently I was looking for armor for my Ranger too, I'm looking for Critical Damage, I chose to buy the karma armor (Lyssa) because the bonuses and precision were good, and it has very diferent stats. But I've already transmuted some parts of it. –  Eduardo Copat Jan 10 '13 at 16:31
    
I believe Dungeon armor also comes with runes. I'm not really quite sure if the only way to attach runes to these piece of armours is transmuting (with transmuting stone). Anyway, I believe you're right, it would be a good idea to buy the Flame Legion Exotic and then attach a rune like you feel its better. I chose the karma –  Eduardo Copat Jan 10 '13 at 16:32
    
I chose the karma path because I had a lot and it was a quick way to get a set, and as I said before, I liked the stats of the rune that came together. But maybe in the future I'll change. I think that if you're going to a full condition damage that's the way. Sorry for the loooong comments. –  Eduardo Copat Jan 10 '13 at 16:33
