evasion and the AoI (in General)
Seems to me like you could actually end up lowering your evasion by equipping an AoI. I think this is a prime example of the need for evasion stacking to be changed, and I'd like to hear what the lords of evasion think about it...
Evasion: 103,702/82,962 (41)
So as I understand it, with the AoI equipped I'll actually end up having something less than 41...but I can't quite figure out how that makes sense.

Evasion *does* stack.
Sure it does, in the same way enchantments do, not in the manner the ToA and weapon plus do.
As far as I understand it you can't end up with less than the higher - to hit.
ok that makes more sense
So the +20 from the AoI acts as a base, and the XP trained into evasion starts adding from there. So you wouldn't get +61, but you
could hit 42 or 43 depending on how high the base item evasion is...I get it now!

The +20 first gets added to any DB (if present) and the gets converted to an equivalent Evasion level. Those levels gets added and then converted back to an Evasion effect. That effect will be somewhere between 41 and 61 in your case.
Instead of starting my own thread I thought I would ask this here, sry if I detract form the original post.
Does the + on DBs = a trained evasion lvl? The wiki says they help with dodging attacks and reducing PTH, but it doesn't really say by how much.

No. It doesn't add the defensive DX that Evasion does, only the minus to Point To Hit.
