I'm using Fruity Reeverb 2.
Most DAW reverbs, delays, compressors, gates and EQ's are actualy of a fairly high quality as it's pretty much expected. On the unusual occasion where I want a "character" EQ I might stray from ReaEQ, but generaly I don't feel the need! Likewise the ReaGate gate plugin is good and does some cool MIDI stuff, the compressor is fine - admittedly hard to find one I like for everything. But they're often also designed very clearly with a very common set of features that allows new users to get familiar with aspects of an effect
Any footage you see of big producers will often have Logic or ProTool's 5 Band EQ or Reverv clearly displayed. The Bombfactory,Lofi and Rectifier effects that come with Protools are also very commonly seen! So I wouldn't avoid host VSTs or VSTi's, whatever you do!
