Default Better Armor of Earth or Stone Striker?

This is my question:
i need armor,so it's better Armor of Earth or Stone Striker?

why Stone Striker?
i'm working on a farming build,so foes do physical damage.

Stone Striker = Earth damage = Elemental damage

Every piece of my armor has '+10 armor vs Elemental damage' and '+10 armor vs Earth damage'

So Stone Striker should give me 2*10*5 armor,but this 100 armor are better than ~62/65 of Armor of Earth?

well if you're working on a farming Build and you go /Me or /R with Mantra of Earth or Storm Chaser, then with stone striker up, you can get some energy back on hits.

It isn't 100 armor. Those bonuses are on each piece. So for example, against Earth damage your chest piece gains +10 armor for the first mod and another +10 armor for the 2nd. It started at 60 (assuming max armor for ele) so is 80. If all 5 pieces have this same mod, then all five pieces are armor 80 vs earth damage.

If your Armor of Earth is giving you +65, then each piece is armor 125.

Stone striker
Geomancer's = 60+10 to ele +10 to earth = 80
+8 armor from a shield
+ 10 to earth shield inscription,
-2 while enchanted shield inscription or +30HP
leaves you at 98 armor

Armor of Earth
blessed = 60+10
+65
=125

So no, stone striker isn't better unless you are running mantra of earth

Usually people run some variant of Stone Striker + Armor of earth + stoneflesh aura + mantra of earth for obsidian flesh tanking/farming.
