View Full Version : a short opinion question-->

Only have a bit to post or this would be longer. Perhaps it doesn't have to be longer, actually, but here it is.

Recently switched around some gear, and gained:

1% avoidance

50 strength

1.15% hit

20 stamina

However, I lost:

2.5% block rating

60 block value (not counting the block I got from the strength on the other pieces)

I don't know if this question seems really stupid, but with all the talk about the supposed value of block...do yall think it was a good trade?

I'd say so, the 60 block value loss becomes only a 35 block value loss which is easily trumped in terms of threat by the 1.15% hit. the 20 stamina gain outweights the mitigation value of the block value loss, and the combined stam + avoidance gain beats out the block rating. I'd have done that change imo. It also depends on where your stamina/avoidance/hit is right now before and after the change.
