Dodge vs. Avoidance?

I was outfitting a character that just reached L40 and I can choose between gear that offers either:

A)
Dodge Chance: 50.9%
Avoidance: 20%

B)
Dodge Chance: 39.9%
Avoidance: 58.7%


All other stats being equal, it seems to me gaining 38.7% Avoidance is worth losing 11% Dodge, so that option B is better. Do you agree?

there's something terribly wrong with the reward system...

    How can one acquire avoidance cores? is there certain NPC rewards that have armor with those in it that you can pull out?

    All but one of the avoidance cores I've gotten came from mission rewards, iirc on Monster Island. The other was a drop in either Vibora or a Unity Mission. No idea if they can be obtained in other ways, as I've not seen it.

    Hmm alright then thanks for the info now I just need to decide if its worth the effort to get a breastplate of elusiveness with 2 avoidance cores or just stick with my Legion of Agility with 2 Lucky gambler gems on my invul character.

    or do one of each mod with avoidance gear

    avoidance cores 4 are a bigfoot mission, helping a tracker ?

    Yeah, Option B. That's what I figured too.

    Alas, Legion gear is too elusive/expensive for me. I've already spent all I'm going to on Keys and didn't get anything good (not complaining, but there it is), and I don't have the Globals for that kind of purchase. >shrug< Maybe someday. Until then, I'm pretty happy "maxing out" with Silver Champion gear and R5-6 mods.
