Indeed. Both have their ups and downs.
Dracula Mantle: With Abandon, he has around 60% evade from the front with 2x Healing Staves and 22% magic evade which isn't terrible. Without Abandon, it's around 50% or so, which still isn't bad. Probably gonna be a lot of mages/spellcasters, so the m-evade could help out if you're lucky. Berserk protection + evasion could be very useful in the long run, depending on what he's up against.
Reflect Ring: +1 MA isn't completely wasted and reflect status could help a lot against Black, most time magic & Yin-Yang Magic outside of Dispel. Ninja will most likely die by whatever first before reflect wears off, and once it does, you're left with just the berserk protection. You also run the risk of the enemy using it to its own advantage.
But yeah, it's your call, though. Personally, I'd go Defense Ring.
