SoJ +50 to defense! So I was playing tug-of-war with my friend's puppy tonight with an old sock and she took one big bite at my hand but ended up biting the rather obtuse ring on my index finger instead. Where she should have broken skin, I was completely unscathed! I promptly thought of how rings in D3 could provide defense to it's user. I do recall D2's manual mentioning how gloves/boots/helms are meant to protect those areas, but that there defense rating still adds to your overall armor class; the same could be said for rings. I know this isn't the most brilliant idea, but it's a novel concept and was fun to think up of.
