Comparison Determination with Grace

  • Grace is an aura skill that grants evasion to the caster and their allies. It can also be used with Iron Reflexes to gain armour instead of evasion.
  • Determination Determination is an aura skill that grants more armour multiplicatively to the caster and their allies.

This Determination Determination skill’s effect is similar to the effect of Grace for evasion. If the player has Iron Reflexes allocated, they do the same, but Grace is usually better than Determination Determination. With no evasion specific nodes allocated, the player needs to have 5049 base armour (maximum of which is around 9000 without specific uniques) from equipment and passives for a level 20 Determination Determination to be better than a level 20 Grace with Iron Reflexes.
