Are these numbers wrong? Upgraded Swordback Hold

Perfect +60%ED, no other variable - not even durability. The Swordback Hold barbed shield reads as 102 defense and 55 durability, which means Arreat Summit is outright wrong about the latter, while it puts the base of the former at 58 (58*1.6+10) - ten points below AS's listed minimum. Either they're significantly out of date and I got a bad roll or I got a really bad roll (I'm betting everyone will say they're wrong).

when you upgrade an armor of any sort, the game re-rolls the base defense to a value within the new armor's defense range. it's the same reason why people advocate against upgrading VampGaze's, since it has a chance to roll with LESS defense than a normal Gaze.
