Could you explain this a bit more.
IMO you have 100 less def and 100 more absorb you get a better stats distributions(assuming we are talking about shadow/assassin)
These numbers include an Exotech stim, since I always have one running. They also account for the effects of the proc absorb relic, which slightly deflates the value of the absorb stat. Also note that I do take the defense talent, which slightly increases the value of the defense stat.
