As a level 16 Asura warrior, I have 98 in base toughness.

In traits I have +60 defense and +60 healing.

While not wearing any items or signets, and no boons or conditions on my character, I find I have 98+160 toughness.

Where does the last 100 toughness come from?

Can we get a screenshot to double check everything? – Gwen Sep 6 '12 at 18:32

The level 5 defense trait "Thick skin" gives me "Extra armor when health is above 90%".

This is added to my "Toughness" attribute, not my "Defence" secondary attribute as I believed it would, since the description says "Extra armor".

But you have a stat called 'Armor', don't you, where "thick skin" would apply? – Gwen Sep 7 '12 at 18:22
No. Armor is the collective name of Toughness + Defense. – Tom A. Vibeto Sep 7 '12 at 23:01
