Which one gives more effective health if you have... say 16k armor and 13.5k health?

[Elixir of Major Fortitude] or [Elixir of Major Defense]

Edit: how do I make an item link? >_>

use tags.

[item]Elixir of Major Fortitude
Elixir of Major Defense

(editing these gets a bit hairy)

for that example the fortitude gives more effective health.
but the difference is very very minmial. it was a difference of less than 20.

i assumed a 300SBV for comparision.
36495.54 with fort
36487.18 with armor

typically though armor is going to give you more effective health once you factor in buffs. however. if your armor exceeds your hp by about 30% the fort pot will yield more effective health. Once you factor in buffs such as fortitude and kings often your health will exceed your armor and the defesive potion is better.

Does major defense stack with ironshield?

I was under the impression that it doesn't. If that is still the case you get more from fortitude.

(counter argument would be if you're chugging ironshields you should be flasked anyway....)

i see no reason ironshield and defense wouldnt stack. one is a potion and one is a elixer. i have used them in conjuction, however, i didnt go in and look at my armor since ironshields only have 2 mins and well... i was busy tanking.
