Hey. (not OP, just looking into the option provided)

Looking into the Pauldrons of the Colossus, they’re not listed, as the secondary stat is Shield Block. As DKs, we do not get to wield shields, so this particular stat is pointless for us.

The question then becomes “Is 1 yellow gem slot worth the drop in 5 defense and 40 parry?”.
Looking at the gems available (not including JC only Epic gems, as they’re UNIQUE(3), you can get 20 parry from a Flashing Cardinal Ruby (which loses the socket bonus as it’s red).

If you’re interested in the gem socket to buff out on Stamina, then the Pauldrons of the Colossus are a good alternative, but for a pure Best In Slot list, I agree with the guide creator of Iron Dwarf Smith Pauldrons.
