Smoke or Lionheart. Suggestions? Greets: Smoke: +75% Enhanced Defense +280 Defense Vs. Missile All Resistances +50 20% Faster Hit Recovery Level 6 Weaken (18 Charges) +10 To Energy -1 To Light Radius Lionheart: +20% Enhanced Damage Requirements -15% +25 To Strength +10 To Energy +20 To Vitality +15 To Dexterity +50 To Life All Resistances +30 My build: PvM: Hybrid: Javelin and Spear: Clvl 55: Doing A4 Nightmare. Merc: Act 2 Defense Defiance hired in Normal. Skills: LF-20 CS-20 Pierce- 5-10 Valk- 5 (going up now until slvl 15 base) Passives- Remaining one point each. Jav/Spear - Remaining one point each. Gameplay: LF crowds with javelin. CS and leech back mana/life against small groups with spear. My actual question: Considering my build (melee to leech and against future LI's), and the huge AR monsters have making defense matter now, and that my priority is not necessarily killing speed but staying alive at later levels (85+); which of the two armors would you choose? As I see it. Both have thier pros and cons: Lionheart pros: awesome stats bonuses. HUGE life bonus. Good resists. ED. Lionheart cons: No defense bonus. No FHR. Smoke pros: HUGE resists. Defense bonus. FHR. Smoke cons: No substantial stats bonuses. No ED. No life bonus. For example. I have a 447defense socketed Wyrmhide. If I make Smoke the defense will rise up to +800 more or less with 50% resist all. If I make Lionheart defense will remain the same but with a huge bonus to life and other bonuses. Does those 400+ in defense will actually make a difference or would you ignore defense and go with Lionheart? Thanks for replies.
