Ok, so ..

I just bought a Rare Gloves (Entitled "Frenzied Grasp") from the AH that has:

191 Armor
+111 STR
+90 VIT
LVL 51

which was meant to replace my old ones that have:

115 Armor
+52 STR
LVL 36

when I switch them for the new gloves, I get a damage reduction of 172.3 and .7% armor reduction. What sense does that make? I spent 85K on this armor piece only to get screwed by the stats which were supposed to dramatically increase my armor and Dmg. Not decrease them.

This is not the first time ive seen gear do this that were supposed to be upgrades but in fact make you worse.
