View Full Version : Defense vs Resilience formula?

Is there a formula for this? I'm using some PvP gear (shield, shoulders) and got 48 resilience from them. Can I step down from 490 def and gear for stamina - and if so, how much?

The resilience one does the math for you!

Doh, maybe I should check around first before posting. Thanks Squeggie. Veneretio is the KING.
So, only need 460 def... hmm. That's interesting.

In case you ever need the check for yourself or like this sort of thing (like I do):
Mob Crit Chance = 5%
Every level a mob is over you add 0.2% chance to crit so:
73 Mob Crit Chance = 5.6%
48 Resilience = 1.22% Crit Reduction (use Ratings Buster to see this in-game).
5.6 - 1.22 = 4.38% chance to be crit.
Defense reduces mobs chance to crit you by 0.04% for every point above 350 so:
4.38% / 0.04% = 109.5 (110)
350 (base defense) + 110 = 460.
