    Default Riftstalker - Guarded steel?

    So as a riftstalker in t1/t2 gear i finally decided to see what my armor with guarded steel was. Unbuffed i have 4489 armor and when i put up guarded steel it goes up to 5239. Isn't guarded steel supposed to give 40% armor buff? 40% of 4489 is 1760 add those together and i should be sitting at almost 6300 armor not 5239. Is it not actually a 40% buff or is this some sort of bug?

    I think the buff just stacks with Guardian Phase, so in actuality, you are getting 90% of the value of your base armor. I'd have to check it myself, I noticed this as well but never really did the math to see if its accurate.

    Percent buffs are of your base armor, not your % buffed armor.

    With Toughened Soul and Guardian Phase, you are already at +70% armor. This means you have roughly 2640 armor which is being increased by 70%. With GS you are adding +40% to get to 110% total. This should put you at roughly 5500 armor.
