I just recently returned and started lvl'ing my RDM again. I'm up to 60 and have been getting some of the artifact armor. But is there any reason for it now? As I won't be wearing it long as how fast I am lvling and I already have some gear that I can wear to get me to 99. I know you can reforge it but from what I seen it's weaker than the Espial Set so should I just skip and go back to xp'ing?

For the sake of leveling, no, you don't really need it. If you want to upgrade them later, you can worry about it when you're higher level and can solo it all more easily. Relic armor will be a bit more difficult to get due to daily dynamis restrictions and the need for zone clears. Emp gear is probably first priority once you are 99, though. The composure bonus is just too good to not have when it comes to extending buff durations on others. But in terms of sheer enfeebling prowess or even fast cast, you've got a lot of ilvl options out there now.

Only thing I saw was the reforged armor and they wasn't really any good. Guess I'll google some ilevel and see what comes up. Thanks

Huh? What exactly were you looking at and comparing it to? RDM is fortunate enough to actually have good JSE.

I guess I was looking at the lvl 109 stuff and not the 119 lvl stuff. I found them and they are really good. Is Joyeuse still good to get for RDM? At least to dual wield?

Nah it is finally curbed at the top end. The damage output of newer weapons trumps its high TP generation. Unless you can mod it to have more damage (i dunno Ive not played in some time). Depending on accessibility of course. If you can't start grabbing or use any of the SoA sh*t then it is still a strong off hand option that is only beaten by a couple ToM weapons.

If you are between the levels of 75 and 99 it is still probably the best all around melee weapon for RDM in the off hand. If you are 99 just get an Eminence Sword/Wand you will average more damage overall.

What level 109 equipment were you specifically looking at that you believe isn't good and what are you comparing it to?
