CON imo since extra hps helps you in all situations but matter/body only helps you when your fighting players with thoes kind of damage spells (matter dosent matter anyway since its insta death if you were trying to protect you from instalocks)

edit : might get 9% body tho not sure...

Ok, then its down to capped body resist or ~ +50HP. Do I like to stand still long or die fast? 22 con gives 50HP and that arent that much so will prolly go with body then.

I also have to choose between 26 slash/25 thrust or the opposite, what do mids/hibs usually use - slash or thrust?

Well work out what an average body spell hits you for (for ease lets say 500 damage) 9% of 500 is less than 50 hits so imo the 50 hits is better (except for the additional benefit or reducing duration on a mezz but in all honesty if you're mezzed and purge isn't up will it really matter?)

lets say he gets nuked 3x500 by a body damaging spell - the 9% extra body resistance dosent only work on one spell, ill let you do the math from here

well.

Body resist should be max or next to it
Cloth armour is neutal so you I have higher slash since majority of ppl spec swords/blades for Malice.

Matter - I have capped matter & still got dotted by some ******** ***** of a warcock for 320 a tick (use imagination on the words blocked out)

con is always nice to have as it helps you survive that extra hit

I'd make a template that capped both.
I used your caster temp but have given up Erinys Charm for now and getting Stone of Atlantis instead. Im getting the same spell range but miss out 15 points of utility by doing that. And I dont wanna have 6% matter as the last version, I have seen, of your caster temp have so I can´t cap it all. Will make a better atempt when I get hold of Erinys Charm.

Sure but the 50 hits counts against all damage types, not sure there's an easy formula for it, tried numerous times to work out resists vs hits cap when doing templates

Really doesnt matter what class/race your talking about: if body resist and +con arent capped your SC needs throwing away and starting again.
