View Full Version : Leigonkiller vs Rifle of the Stoic Guardian

So, this week we were hunter light in BT. Leigonkiller dropped, no hunters wanted it, so I picked it up as it seems to be a solid tanking ranged item. Later we got our first Rifle of the Stoic Guardian, which I deferred to our OT.

I'm currently trying to decide what to do if another RotSC drops...basically which ranged item do I like better?

Legionkiller: 21 agi, 30 stam

RotSC: 20 dodge, 31 stam

So, 21 agi vs 20 dodge and one stamina.

Dodge rating converts to % to dodge at a 18.9 = 1% ratio. That puts the RotSC at 1.06% chance to dodge. The one stamina difference should be 11.5 hp with BoKings and 5/5 Vitality.

Agi converts to % to dodge for warriors at a 30 = 1% ratio. 21 Agi --> 23.1 agi with Bokings, so that puts the Legionkiller at a 0.77% chance to dodge. It also grants 101.6 armor factoring in 5/5 toughness. Lastly, it grants 0.77% to critically hit, which helps with aggro generation.

So, 11.5 hp and 0.29% to dodge vs 101.6 armor and 0.77% to crit...honestly I'm not sure. I'm leaning towards the Legionkiller though. It clearly wins for threat and is pretty comparable from a survival standpoint.

I use the legionkiller in aggro fights and the RotSG for avoidance fights.
Both are close to eachother, but RotSG gives more avoidance imo.

What Fitzlestick said. RotSG is better avoidance, Legionkiller gives better EH/Threat

Stoic Guardian gives marginally more avoidance, but Legionkiller provides a decent amount of avoidance, some armor, and some crit. I personally never use Stoic Guardian unless I'm stacking pure avoidance for some awkward reason.

By the way, your agi to armor conversion is off, it's 21 agi * kings = 23 agi * 2 armor per agi = 46 armor. I'm about 98% sure Toughness only applies to stats on an item that list as "Armor", and not armor derived from agility.
