Which is more important, Ability or Item Slot?

If there was an item with exactly same stats which would you more likely sacrifice?

Not that much, but I too voted for Item Slot...

Didn't get it :P

Hmm... it all depends.

But taking out any and all other factors. An item slot is more important.

If there was an item that had the exact same stats/ability as an ability, I would sacrifice the item. This would allow for another item to take it's place, thus increasing the character even more.

Now taking in other factors.

Quote
If picking the ability means I cannot pick another ability that is more important down the line, then I would sacrifice the ability and keep the item.

If the item's stats can stack with the ability's stats, then I wouldn't sacrifice either of them.

If both of the above factors are true, then if the combined stats are greater than the ability-Y then I would keep both.

And so one with the factors.
Hey you... Yes you... get over here...

Interesting answers.

I was asking this in the first place because there's an item and ability with almost same stats(special ability and special item). Both are based on Mana Shield that takes damage to mana instead of health (33%).
