So I don't understand, if wearing a Spellbook of Dark Mysteries + Magic Sword really doesn't give you any advantage besides the +3 mod, then why does the dmg reduction calculator shows it does? o_O

We will have to change that I guess. My fault!

The armor calculator has been updated. It was created some time ago when we assumed that the higher def of the item (shield and weapon) is used for calculations - after our recent research we didn't update the armor calculator though, thanks for pointing it out Icyness :).

Should help a tiny bit by increasing your shield defense, but wont help that much.

All good but one thing I'd improved.
The graph showed that the Avenger is the best weapon leaving behind Demonwing Axe and The Stomper. This is nonsense!
If we take the high axe fighting / club fighting skills, both Demonwing Axe and The Stomper will defend as well as the Avenger.
I understand that when you making the graph have related to your skills (103 sword) for this so and so drew a red line on the graph.

By the way, i put a link to my Test of Defense, which have shown the same thing:

http://tibia-wiki.net/wiki/Test_Obrony (polish supported fansite)

I know that there is written in Polish but you should see hits.

Avenger is the best readily available weapons in the game and its price is so low. It's sad.

Yours Miru

Stomper and Demonwing will not block damage as well as avenger because they have lower defense value. Your test proves exactly the same that Gorak said, that when wielding a two handed weapon it's the fighting skill that determines defensive abilities, not the shielding.

With same fighting and shielding it will be better to have mms and emerald because they will have 40 defense in total compared to 38 of avenger.

If You decide to use only avenger you will neglect your shielding and you can't know what cipsoft will do, maybe later shielding will be much more important than it is today so I won't recommend anyone to completely stop training shielding skill.

Yes you are right, it seemed to me that The Stomper and Demonving Axe are similar to The Avenger defense factor. My bad :)
I cancel previous comments, great article.
