You can argue for the situational benefit of Pain Bearer or Valiance, imo. Pain Bearer is beneficial when you're taking damage from any source. Valiance gives you more leeway to utilise Noble Sacrifice when you're getting pressured by incoming damage, on the other hand.

Ultimately, at BiS gear levels you're going to have about 20k health, give or take. Each point in Valiance means 400 less damage taken for every NS. You'd have to take 10,000 in healing from other sources for every NS (20,000 if you drop two points) before Pain Bearer becomes more mathematically advantageous.
