Sacrosanct or Catoptric Armor?

Which one is better?

Catoptric is more defense and has a decent chance to reflect spell damage.

I made both and I'm always tempted to go with the Catoptric, but I like the healing effect of the Sacrosanct enough to keep it.

Does Catoptric armor ever reflect or mitigate healing effects?

Seems like they changed the function of Bounce/Mirror Armour for DQ9.

In the past? Yeah. Would reflect beneficial spells... but not in this game :p
Neither the darkness, nor the light. Merely the shadow, reflection of the darkness cast by the light. Condensed and distilled into unification, nothing and all.

Anyone knows the chances the catoptric/mirror armor has to reflect spells?

Mirror armor for Forbearance. Sacrosanct for damage dealers.

Unless you plan on using Magic Mirror and/or Forbearance, Catoptric Armor is the clear winner. The 25 healing per round from Sacrosanct armor is entirely unnecessary. Either you are taking too much damage for it to make a difference, or you are taking so little it is insignificant.
Troll me.

OR you can equip a Life Bracer and the Catoptric Armor if you still want the 25 hp heal per round (if you don't use another accessory.)

Please note that Sacrosanct Armor and Life Bracer healing effects -Do Not- stack with each other, you'll only heal up to 25 per round max, even with both on.
