It depends on your SKL stat. If it's good, then aegis > RES+10. If it's bad, then RES +10 > aegis,

I prefer RES +10 on MU, unless it is for street pass (Where Manaketes can happen).
Everything in life is a battle. Even peace itself is a battle to maintain it.

Depends on your Res in the first place. Res+10 is 10 damage less. If your taking 20 from most enemies Res+10 if your taking more from everything or are in Lunatic+ in fear of Luna+ then Aegis.

I'd recommend judging how much damage you're taking. Aegis covers bows too but activates based on your skill stat.

Resist+10 is a huge amount of flat resistance. I immediately slapped it on Chrom (on top of Aegis) because of how trashy his resist stat is. On your MU? I don't know. Considering you have so many other options, I don't know if that's your best bet. You can't rely on Aegis to save your life.

In favor of Aegis:
- Protects you from more magic damage than Res+10 if you would take 21 or more damage (sometimes.)
- Protects you from bows (sometimes.)

In favor of Res+10:
- Always reduces damage.
- You often won't take enough magic damage for Aegis to provide more reduction.

Pick what you think you need more.
