I think really what it comes down too is a matter of prefrence...both are damn nice.I curently am wearing DM but will prolly switch to DF just because I wish to wear a full suit of it for honor.I currently am wearing a few things better than DF but whats better stats compared to the honor of earning something through blood sweat and death?just my 2cp

Armor Class, Resists, Hitpoints.
Dex is nice because it helps your weapons to proc and it makes a huge difference for rangers in regards to archery... but face it... we're Shadowknights, we don't run around the woods shooting stuff with bows and arrows like Ted Nugent.
The best thing to get is AC and resists.
Clerics, shamans, and druids can buff your HP.

And in regards to the post saying that 50 mana isn't much of a help: When your chain pulling or soloing... every point of mana can help, even if it's only one free cast of Engulfing Darkness. That free cast of ED may just help you stay out of reach of the mob as you run with Spirit of Screaming Schoolgirl to the zone. ;)

Dm vs Darkforge

I would go with the darkforge :) The 5sv magic is very important

No question darkforge is the way to go. Against caster type mobs resists are a must. Against melee type mobs ac is king. Darkforge beats darkmail both ways.
dark mail vs. darkforged

Im a lvl 14 sk and i have dark mail guants. I would rather have the dark mail because my dex is pretty low. If your dex is high then u should go with the dark forged i believe. It just matters on ur dex i think.
The Dex

The only thing that would get me is the loss of dex, i play an ogre with fairly low dex, and some of the things that i'd like to rely on during a match, such as vampiric embrace or other weapon procs are all but lost to me. So i'd have to go with the darkmail this time.

....DM gaunts? Just for those who debate the issue, the 50 mana doesn't make that much of a difference (Engulfing Darkness, as an example, costs 60 mana), and the AC is slightly lower on DM gaunts. I think the issue is the importance of +5sv magic versus the three Dexterity lost from switching to these from Darkmail Gauntlets. Anyone want to give their input on these items?
