Fearless for threat, Stability for tough fights?

I know Stability has more dodge, health, and SBV (Thusly EH), but the reduction of parries from expertise on Fearless must help a ton. I'm leaning towards Fearless for trash and Stability for bosses. What would you do?

Ya basically, Fearless for threat. Stability for Survivability. You could easily do fine with just 1 of the 2 though.

Expertise IS survivability

I'd say stick with fearless until you face a boss that REALLY demands more avoidance.

I'm not sure if 1% less parry is as good as 1% more dodge across the spectrum, though. A 1% decrease in the bosses chance to have a 40% increase before his next attack, or a 1% decrease in the number of swings that hit you, I think that avoidance is better for fights where you don't need to stack threat.

However, comparing the stats of the two:
1.91% avoidance on stability, 1.72% avoidance on fearless.
110 extra HP on stability.
56 extra BV on stability.
1.39% less parry on fearless.

If I had both, the only time I'd wear stability is on trash when I'm stacking SBV.

Stabilities BV doesn't really add anything exciting unless you're hit / expertise capped elsewhere.
But what Fearless really does is let you replace the badge expertise neck & bracers with the Naj & RoS drops and still keep your expertise up.

Against something that can't parry haste, Stability a much better choice though.

So stability for RoS and badge belt for everything else lewl ;)

Well, stability for the BV on RoS. ( although if you're bashing spirit shocks, hit / expertise cap is the way to go)
Brutalis and Mother don't parry haste though. Stability would be much better for them.
