Always def unless capped, try reading a guide for your class for better answers

Heard that defense isn't as useful as HP in PvP and Infernal Abyss though.

Def always beats hp when taking multiple hits. In pvp you will be focused and die no matter what, with def you die slower, in infernal you shouldnt ever die unless your team all dies first.

With HP you also die slower.

No, because you take more damage per hit so die faster

... ok.

But if you want to think about it like that -- HP can actually be better than defense, depending on your defense percentage before adding points.

Well, the last topic ace was in there was a huge drama over how he didn't provide evidence to back up his opinions.
Anyways, I've tried running defense and just switched to HP recently. Have to switch subclass too before I'm willing to test PvP out.

...

Def gives advantage early in game but latter on when you have enough gear to cover up your def and cap it, its always better to reset stats to hp, until then sticking to def is better. The reason is early on if your heals cannot keep up properly with your hp, you will have less time healing your team and will have to focus on keeping yourself alive but def reduces the threat and aoe heals can easily keep you going.
But as the level gets higher other player will have access to better equipment and most of all multiple dps skills, at this moment you will have to heavily rely on equipment to provide the overall def and invest all the points to hp to counter the dps threat, even bard/sorc can only remove one debuff at a time it cannot handle multiple dps unless it has decent hp latter on.
