    Something I don’t understand about Armor defense.
    Diablo II, Nightmare, ACTIV, paladin level 68.
    I try to choose between following armors:

    1) Defense 435 / 86% Enhanced defense/- +44 to life / cold resist 22% / Magic damage reduced by 1/ Poison length reduced by 75%
    2) Defense 834 / 85% Enhanced defense

    I have belt NO FROZEN and my magic resistances are 75+ except poison and cold (which I don’t think I need more).
    Practically the two armors do not make much of deference during combat although the defense is double. Why?
    Which one would you prefer and why?

    Defense determines how high chance you have to be hit by a monster. It doesnt reduce the dmg u take directly.

    400def difference where you are atm, isnt THAT much. Unless you use skills that further increase your def rating.

    What if the armor was even less? 200, 100? What is the point of this number?
    Is it all about the magic damage only?
