Assault Cuirass and Blade Mail: These items will give you extra armor which will decrease the incoming damage. Also use Blade Mail when under heavy attack. Assault Cuirass will give you attack speed with armor.
Vanguard: This will give you more HP regen and HP. Also block can help you survive longer.
Tarrasque: More HP, more regen.
Halberd: Evasion will help you survive longer. In addition you can disarm enemies which are item dependent.
Hood: Useful against enemy skills.
Radiance: You will have much HP and armor which means enemy will spend more time attacking you which also means enemy will take more damage from radiance.
