    Trinket: Defender's Code or Essence of Gossamer

    So, the choice is between .85% mitigation + 455 dodge for 20 secs every 2 mins. or a flat 1243 health increase.

    Armory link is as follows:
    The World of Warcraft Armory

    Depends on the fight. On Malygos or Sartharion (w/drakes) where Magic damage is everywhere I would go with the stam trinket. On a more physical fight I would probably take the Defender's Code, I really like the massive Defense on it since it spreads it around and you get block rating out of it too. The click ability is pretty nice, and can also be useful on things like Sartharion where you need as much HP as possible (if you are taking his breaths while you have a nasty combo of drake debuffs up).

    Just depends really.

    Of course if you need the Code to stay crit immune use it.

    Defender's Code - Item - World of Warcraft has 850 armor and an avoidance click on it.

    What I think you're thinking of is the trinket off of thaddius, Repelling Charge - Item - World of Warcraft

    Though I guess the same would apply, it's basically an avoidance trinket vs. an EH trinket. Kinda, sorta.

    defender's code reduces my physical damage taken by ~2% => ~2% more EH.
    this should be equal to ~600-800 hp + the overall reduction is comparable to 2% avoidance (pre-DR).

    I'm either totally wrong or this trinket is a great choice for a balanced gear set.

    Yes, my mistake. Thanks for the heads up Kpx

    I'm really trying to re-evaluate my use of Defender's Code. Outside of magic damage situations, anyone have a comment on his post?

    I use this in conjunction with the Badge (ok Emblem, whatever) Trinket on the high physical damage fights. I like setting up a Dodge rotation with the click ability of each of them.

    However, I do not have the Repelling Charge from Thadd yet (damn my bad rolling) which would probably alter how I geared and gemmed certain things.

    Anyway, this is really nice trinket IMO.
