Helmets: Eternium Greathelm vs Helm of the Stalwart Defender

Postby Sultan » Wed May 30, 2007 3:03 pm

Perhaps I missed it somewhere but what do you guys think of these two?
I have both but socketed differently. Looking to use the best one for raiding of course. I have my opinions but I'd like to hear yours. Thanks.

Eternium Greathelm
+8 Dodge
+8 Defense
+12 Stamina

Helm of the Stalwart Defender
+8 Defense
+8 Defense
+8 Defense

Maybe I could have resocketed the Stalwart differently. Not sure.

Greathelm with 3 x +12 sta gems, imo. Resilience is a junk stat for us, like Strength (shame the Greathelm has it, but it's got a lot of Defense).

Unless you're under 490 stam, then 8 defense is not a good gem. If you really need defense, go with 4 def/6stam if you can. If you're at 490 defense, get 8 dodge if you need to hit uncrushable or 12 stam if you already are and forgo any socket bonuses. 99% of them aren't worth it.

In terms of which helm, I think they're both pretty good, it's tough to call. I might go with the armor on the HotSD, although it's a shame as the resilience in that helm is a waste.
