So you're saying taking damage 5% more often is crippling to you?
I'm saying I don't have a way to increase the AC without moving to higher points on the ring, more class levels (2 more levels in Paladin), and a dex item.
So I can gain about 2 points from ring, 2 points from Paladin levels, and 1 or 2 points from Dex (depending on if I spend a lot on a 16,000 gp Dex item).
I replaced the Jingasa (giving me +2) with a dusty rose (+1). So I went from 29 to 28.
I could (with Jingasa) have had max 34 or 35 with the Jingasa and be in the "rarely ever hit range". I'm now in the 32 or 33 range, which will be in the "hit infrequently range". So it will be an issue. More than the 5% different in hitting makes it sound.
