    PvP Zealot - Eth Gladiator bane or Eth steel carapace?

    Hey guys, I was just wondering, which one you think is better? Both need to be socketed (Gbane with Zod, Carapace with Cham).

    Gbane has 30% fhr while carapace has 20%. Both have negligable DR.
    Gbane has -50% poison duration.

    Why should people prefer the eth carapace? Higher defense perhaps? I found an eth gbane, 198ed, it has 2209 defense. Not too bad heh.

    Your opinions?

    If you're gonna Zod your eth band. I would just use the Zod to get a few eth Duress.

    gladiators bane is better, because, it has cbf, and this allows you to take 2 angelic rings or some other ring than raven...

    Yes bane is better for cnbf and it needs less str. Yes you could just trade for a eth duress. But have any of you seen how little the dur are on some of these armors? And retrading over and over again is also a pain for me it is.
    Fort I am trying to get one right now. I just need the LO rune. I even have a 4 socted 9% more def wirefleece.
