With that being said, there is an expansion expected to arrive sometime at the end of this year, which will increase the current level cap from 85 - 95, so once you get to level 85, you shouldn't strain yourself too much at getting the best gear.
Red and blue traits are both very viable, either going fully in one line or mixing and matching the two, both work very well. If you enjoy hitting bigger numbers and being a little less mobile, then head for the Red line, but if you enjoy faster inductions and being more mobile in combat, then go for the Blue line.
For a hunter, Crit is still very important, but thankfully our main stat, agility, still provides a fair amount of crit, so as long as you are focusing on agility as a main stat, your crit should be fine.
I'll just say again that there is the upcoming expansion of Helm's Deep which will bring in new level 95 gear before I suggest ways to get level 85 gear: If you do get to level 85 before the expansion and aim to get some good gear, I'd highly recommend acquiring the Riders of Rohan quest pack, which, when you reach level 84, will unlock the village of Hytbold which is the ideal place for all players to acquire very good armour without having to do any groups or raids - it is effectively a place where solo'ers can get good armour. For more information on Hytbold, I recommend this brilliant thread.
For a legendary weapon, you can get a second age weapon which is a great one to get. You can acquire this by acquiring a 'Tarnished Symbol of Celebrimbor' which can be bartered from any Skirmish Camp 'Legendary Items' NPC for a fair amount of marks and medallions. You can earn those marks and medallions either by doing skirmishes or group instances.
Finally, there have been a lot of changes and additions since you left, so I am not sure what this 'armoury' is you speak of.
