yes i'd take less damage but i'd have less health. Doesn't that even out? I'm asking because my current build does get me through tfb hm with no trouble... I'm a bit surprised that i got my stats all wrong :/

No, more health has nothing to do with mitigating damage. You're taking more damage than you need to, and thus your healers are working harder than they need to. You just have more of a cushion for time to be healed, at the cost of taking more damage. And that cushion is maybe 1 or 2 hits tops. It's not worth it.

Do you have a setup on AskMrRobot that we can see?

This is what I'm currently working with...

Not sure where you're getting the extra 5% for absorb.

DISREGARD.. didn't realize the website had a bug with defense shown.
