I'd say it depends on your level and goals overall. With good tempers, a P.Chrome will put P.Arcs to shame. But if you're really all about haxing out and/or PvP, then investing into a good Crimson set won't be a bad idea.
(Personally, I don't care for PvP and could care less about haxing out, but being lv300+ by the time the mine revamp came, I went for a P.Chrome instead of a P.Arc. The only real trouble you might have with making a P.Chrome is Abyss being... well Abyss. Digging maps will suck. Hunting for old staves will suck. Hunting for certain comp stones will suck too. But if you're patient enough, it will pay off. Oh, and farming CF305s is easy, especially since they can be farmed alongside CF275s.)
Oh wow. I totally overlooked P. Chrome xD Thanks.
Well, just replace P. Arcstick with P. Chrome and the premise still holds. I'd love to "hax out" and invest in an Altiverse Set, but I'd imagine that'd take *extreme* amounts of money, time, and luck (just by the fact that they can't be tempered).
So if I am to be reasonable in my endeavors, P. Chrome is the best option until (if ever) they decide to make Altiverse items temper'able?
