At high levels you probably should assume mobs have more like 25 dex (or overmax to about that point depending on how you want to look at it.)

So really your question is more: is 23 dex vs. 19 dex enough to justify taking this legacy? I'd say no. There's probably about 20 legacies that would do more for you.

You actually have it backwards. Swap what you think about A and B.
