Your gear isn't that bad without requiring a budget of 300k+ to overhaul~ hehe
On that note though, I can see maybe a few tiny upgrades:
Ornate Helm - Yeah, stats may not be as good as a lot of Rogues like to have, but then again, most of those rogues are the ones that have the budget/means to get the white dragonscale helm. Frankly, with starting stats, the UV/See Invis effect and the option to add another type 7 aug, it seems like a decent helm to me.
Crown of Goblin Nobles - Fairly common drop from down in Droga (forgot exact mob name though) or even easier drop from a trader in the bazaar~
I myself bought a Ghastly Bracer of Sacrifice from the MM LDoN camp for 442 points, added a Veng2 augment (510 points, Tak) and a str/sta 7 augment (510 points MM) making it into a pretty nifty AC: 18, Str: +11, Sta: +7, Agi: +6, hp: +35, Mana: +35, dr: +4, cr: +3, mr: +3, Eff: Veng 2 bracer (almost up there or better than Ornate bracer and helluva lot easier to obtain )
Belt of the Great Turtle - Oldie but Goodie. 10 atk and 2 regen/tick is always a nice accompaniment.
Anyways, that's my ideas, take 'em or ignore 'em as ya see fit~

The thing that makes the stanos ornate helm junk is the kylong darkmail coif
+19 AC +8 Str +8 Sta +12 vsFire +12 vsCold +45 HP +45 Mana +2.50 Wt
versus stanos wicked helmet
Helmet +24 AC +4 Str +2 Sta +6 Agi +8 Dex +6 vsMg +3 vsCold +2 vsPos +4 vsDis +50 HP +5.00 Wt
Now given that the kylong helm cost a third to half as much as stanos its not even a compromise.
The Kylong helm is the superior helm and its cheaper. Two things that make for an obvious buying decision (unless your willing to trade 5 sta worth of hp for 5 ac which most of us arnt). The only reason someone would get the ornate helm is if they didnt have the patience to wait for the cheaper kylong helm to run through the bazaar. When it comes to stats no stats are worth hasty wasteful decisions. For what ever reason (prolly drop rate) the kylong never rises above 15k. And unlike the ornate helm its not no drop so when you upgrade to a raid helm you get your money back. With ornate your just out cash.
I never begrudged the ornate helm cause I was uber. I begrudged the ornate helm becuase I used to be in this position and I do my homework. Its just a waste or laziness to go with the ornate.
I think SoE had two different people itemize Veksar and PoP cause while one came on the heels of the other they were alot more generous with the stats on a droppable semi easy to get helm from veksar.
I still wearing a Slime Covered Rubicite Coif.
Aside from the Velious kings and Vex Thal, helm choices suck.

I personally have only seen one Kylong helm for sale on my server (not saying there haven't been others, but I probably missed them). Either they aren't terribly common, or the folks that have them aren't in much of a hurry to get rid of them (likely the latter). Ornate helms seem to drop like water lately. I got my ornate helm back before this duper craze when it cost me 5k. The single Kylong helm I've seen was running at 15k. That's what made the decision for me~

For my blind barbarian, the Stanos is much better just because of the ultravision and the see invis is a really nice addition since I dont have it in any other slots. Marauder Snowblind, Barbarian Deceiver

Spend some time in Droga. You can get a Hideous Coif of Woe for that head slot. Ac is not as good, but the overall stats are very comparable if not better, better resists too.
