16% to armor rating, or a flat 2% damage reduction? With armor being useless against elemental and internal, and subject to armor piercing effects, I'm not sure that the flat 2% might not be better. When I plug in some numbers into the armor DR formula, 16% increase in armor value only translates to about 3% DR with topend armor at level 50... less, up until then.

Of course you could take both, and probably should on a PVE server, but you have some harder choices to make for a PVP build.

I think there's enough filler in Shieldtech to allow you to take both. I certainly wouldn't want to have to choose between the two.

I would say go with the flat damage reduction for PvP purposes. Else some specs will kill you far faster. Better to have a good feel for your survive-ability in all situations.
