The more Evasion you have, the more good having more does you until you're effectively unhittable. Reducing average damage taken by raising protection requires substantially larger increases to affect the big hitting enemies you care about in the late game. Protection is of course much more competitive earlier on, but the price is geared to the endgame. Happy to debate this point if someone else wants to crunch the maths and offer another perspective.
okay that makes sense.

adding on armoursmith isn't too expensive with the affinity, and with artistry built in it can help quite a bit in the early levels.
