What Felhoof said mostly. From a survivability standpoint, ICC gear with bonus armor on it works great even on heavy magic damage fights - because we're not sacrificing Stamina to get it. We're sacrificing Avoidance for the most part, which is useless on magic fights anyway. With gems it's a different story, and you are sacrificing Stam for more armor.

Failure is not an option. It comes bundled with the software.
