Helm of the Stalwart Defender
Binds when equippedHead Plate

Durability 100 / 100
Requires Level 70
Equip: Increases defense rating by 23 (10 @ L70).
Equip: Improves your resilience rating by 23 (0.58% @ L70).


So I'm thinking about getting this. Earlier I swear I read something about resilience reducing the defense cap. I'm really curious about how much 23 resilience would reduce the cap (if that's even true), since I'm going to be getting the Furies deck soon and losing 32 defense rating, which will take me about 14 or 15 below the cap.


Does anyone have any definite numbers on this? Thanks.

It's pretty simple. Resilience reduces crits, which is what the Defense cap is all about. Resilience reduces crits at 1% per 39.4 rating. Thus, 23 Resilience rating reduces crits by 0.584%, which is equivalent to 34.5 Defense rating, or 14 Defense skill.

The problem is that replacing Defense with Resilience will reduce your avoidance.

Damn, then this helm is precisely what I need. Thank you very much.
