    Put aside Band of the Eternal Defender ???

    Assuming scrolls are worthless when used in conjunction with the Eternal Defender because the proc knocks them off, are any other comparable rings therefore superior to use if scrolls are an option? Basically, you can add 300 armor value to any other ring you have, and then make the comparison, right?

    So that leaves your choice as being:

    Band of the Eternal Defender
    +43 Stamina
    +30 Defense Rating (+1.52% avoidance)
    +44 Shield Block Value
    Proc for +800 armor for 10 seconds

    VERSUS: (Just a few options off the top of my head):

    Seventh Ring of the Tirisfalen
    300 Armor (+668 Eff. HP at 21000HP/18500AC)
    +37 Stamina
    +17 Defense (.86% Avoidance)
    +24 Shield Block Rating (+3.04%)
    +24 SB Value

    Band of the Abyssal Lord
    300 Armor (+668 Eff. HP at 21000HP/18500AC)
    +53 Stamina
    +27 Defense (1.37% Avoidance)
    +21 Hit Rating (1.33% Hit)

    Signet of the Last Defender
    300 Armor (+668 Eff. HP at 21000HP/18500AC)
    +45 Stamina
    +28 SB Rating (3.55%)
    +42 SB Value

    Ring of the Stalwart Protector (probably already in your #2 slot, though)
    +692 Armor (!!!!)
    +45 Stamina
    +28 Dodge Rating (1.48% Avoidance)

    Obviously, the relative value of the armor would vary based on your current armor amount, but has anyone seen this looked at closely? I can crunch the numbers, but if it's been done elsewhere, I won't waste the time. This just kinda struck me, because I've always considered the Band of the Eternal Defender to be a no-brainer to go in almost every set I own.

    are better even without a scroll than eternal defender. the only place defender wins out is when you're stacking block gear or need some block.

    BoED is better then BotAL. More threat, more avoidance, slightly lower EH based on base stats and then the proc which makes EH better as well.

    Stalwart is better, I think. I'd have to do some number crunching on the ED proc.

    [item]Band of the Abyssal Lord[/item] is a Threat ring and [item]Band of the Eternal Defender[/item] is a avoid/EH ring.
