    Eth Shaft unless it's for a Defiance Merc. (Which it isn't)

    Shaft's Dr would reduce the amount of time the merc spends in Hit recovery animation just because it'll reduce the occurence of him losing more than 1/12 of his life in 1 shot.

    Anyone who calls me a genius is certifiably insane... ([email protected], SinfulSlave, anyone else I've missed)

    But... I stick with what I've said.

    To truly take advantage of those differences in Armor Def, it takes Edef% from a Skill... A Druid's only real choice for that is a Defiance Merc.... So Since it's not, concentrate on things other than def. Def is only worth the effort if you go extreme to see actual differences.

    CBF is the only thing lacking for the Merc.... but if he encounters that, you can always give him support so he's not completely crushed because he's slightly slower.

    Shaft is the way I'd go. Final Answer.

    Belated Edit type thing (proof I'm not a genius, I thought I was in the Druid Forum):

    Unless you have a Maxed Shout, it's not worth using GBane.
