    dodge, speed, doublestrike - generally no
    saves - bonuses of different types stack: resistance bonus with insight bonus (parrying / riposte items) stacks with luck bonus etc
    AC
    - armor grants armor bonus. does not stack with armored bracers or mage armor (spell)
    - shields grant shield bonus. stacks with the above. does not stack with shield (spell)
    - insight bonus on parrying / riposte / heightened awareness items
    - etc. http://ddowiki.com/page/Armor_Class

    Generally speaking, things of the same type do not stack. If you have an item with competence bonus and equip another item that states it also provides a "competence" bonus, only the highest one counts.

    So read what the item provides the bonus too, if it is the same as another item, 99% chance that only the highest one works.

    In general, if it comes from feats/enhancements/epic destinies, it stacks with equipment and with other feats/enhancements/epic destinies.

    They've been gradually fixing the stacking rules for gear--some things used to stack if they were different numbers. Now, the only things that still stack this way are subtlety (-threat), incite (+threat), and healing amp. Everything else only stacks if it has a different bonus source. Here's a list of common bonus sources (there are others):

    AC: Natural Armor, Deflection, Armor Bonus, Shield Bonus, Insight Bonus, Sacred bonus. There are two types of natural armor bonuses that stack with each other, but they list this.
    HP: Equipment bonus (aka False Life), Vitality bonus, Lesser Elemental Energy, Elemental Energy, Greater Elemental Energy
    SP: Equipment bonus, Elemental Spellpower, Greater Elemental spellpower, artifact bonus
    Stats: competence bonus, exceptional bonus, insight bonus, alchemical bonus, rage bonus, profane bonus, sacred bonus
    Saves: competence bonus, insight bonus
    Resistances: inherent bonus, equipment bonus
    Damage: competence bonus, artifact bonus
    Dodge: at present there's only one type of gear dodge bonus
    Skills: competence bonus, enhancement bonus, exceptional bonus

    So, always read to see what *type* of bonus you're getting.
    Thelanis player: Lehren (heroic/epic completionist), Kimberlei (heroic/epic completionist), Natheme, Daiahn, Arrekeh
