What is better - HP or defense?

I'm trying to decide whether or not to trade my current helm for Mask of the Mother. I would lose 11 physical defense but gain 80 HP. Suggestions?

I always wear a mask of the mother or child, so in my opinion, keep the mask.

The Mask of the Mother is the best headgear in the game. If you're going for max effectiveness you should almost always have it.

Those masks look stupid. Ditch it and find your buffs elsewhere. Fashion Souls FTW

Is there a way to buff the masks? I've been rocking mask of the child and loving it, pairs pretty nicely with wanderer set too.

Nah, not since the DLC patch. Only 5% HP increase now. It was 15% before IIRC.

HP is usually superior.

If you are choosing between 80 health, and 11 defense, take the health.

Oh, thanks, I was wrong. I stand corrected.

But the best is Crown of Dusk, coz I love mage characters =)

Is that even a valid question?
What's the health for if you take more damage?
