Out of curiosity has anyone tested the effectiveness of these two stats against higher level mobs to see how much its reduced per level? Potentially could provide more damage reduction than invulns or defense in certain cases, either way, good to know.

Tbh, I'm not sure there are diminishing returns, or at least they aren't noticeable.
I believe Defense is the only reason we use higher level gear. Defense differences in PVE cause an enormous amount of extra damage if they aren't up to the level of the encounter you're in. Realistically, this means a few pieces that contribute very little Armor (wrists, etc.) can be whatever you want, from any level range.
