If the 3% was additive maybe that would be true, but I'm fairly certain that is inacurate. ~4k armor I think is ~3% reduction (but it depends on your DRs). But that's a flat reduction.

Looking further (note smaller number here = better since it's in the denominator):

(1-.7)*(1-.03) = .291

(1-.73) = .27

So actually 3% more reduction to armor is better than 3% more reduction from vigilance buffs and the like. Remember, vig does not stack with BoSanc or Renewed Hope.

Doing some more napkin math:

.27 = .3*(1-x)

.9 = (1-x)

-.1 = -x

.1 = x

Therefore to equal a 3% increase in armor, an additional buff that is multiplicative (like all damage reduction effects are) would need to be about a 10% reduction, assuming no other effects.

It's still an effin' awesome talent though.
