    I don't think you can.

    Possible to balance it out with a refinement of the opposite type on another piece? Of course then you have to FIND that, and, well, good luck.

    Yea I don't think you're able to remove refinements from armor currently, never tried to add mage armor to a refined piece though, but then again the piece would need 4 properties or less to do that. =/

    I think you can at least "lower" the refinement but applying a weaker refinement. That still leaves you with at least -1 dci or at least -1 max resist

    I have never confirmed it works though, just read it somewhere.

    Try it on TC

    As Ender said, you need to balance it with refinements of the opposite effect. If you have a lot of refinements going, you may find it easiest to re-refine a few pieces with Defense, then do the others with Defense of the opposite effect.
