View Full Version : Lost in Defense

I've got a little problem having too much defense.

I've been trying to get diff. stats up but am reaching the end of my possibilities.

Is 564 defense really bad to have or can i just leave it this way and have it push up some of my avoidance?




Woops sowwy :)

great gear, only thing i would suggest is maybe get something other than repelling charge.

as far as defense goes, dont worry about it. people talk of a "cap" but reaching 540 is more of a bare minimum, also known as "un critable". Defense after 540 gives your dodge block and parry without killing your diminishing returns on pure dodge/block/parry. (over "cap" is a good thing).

one thing i will say.
never gem for pure hit (your helm/belt)
never gem for pure Str (or Str at all, leggs)

10 BV (or 5 from a 10 str 10 stam gem) is never > 30 stam.

If you're really set on filling socket bonuses, its XStat + Stam Hybrid gem. So Def/Stam or Hit/Stam if you're hurting on hit, and Dodge/Stam for the leg gem.

If you're not really set on bonuses, go for 30stam
