View Full Version : Unhittable vs Avoidance

02-21-2009, 12:05 AM
I'm looking for some clarification about a couple things involving my ratings of Unhittable & Avoidance, according to the macro listed elsewhere on this website.

So, here's the numbers that pop up: (note, gems are dodge+stam, both legs have 55+stam/22+agi - but are obviously not show in links, so just take my word on the numbers)

SET #1: [Heroes' Dreadnaught Leggards] (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=39612) + [Waistguard of Living Iron] (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=40689) = Unhittable 72.24%, Avoidance 53.33%

SET #2: [Greaves of Turbulence] (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=40240) + [Waistguard of the Tutor] (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=39298) = Unhittable 76.11%, Avoidance 51.09%

The stam difference is small (200hp), armor difference is like 60 points, and the def cap doesn't play a factor either, so the choice between these two pretty much comes down to, do I want a higher Avoidance or a higher Unhittable? (more Dodge or more Block)

My logic tells me I want to be more unhittable, even if that means I'm avoiding less and blocking more (ie. SET #2)? I'm confused because I heard talk that it's actually the Avoidance number you want to be as high as possible, not the Unhittable (or SET #1). And, just to make things more confusing, the TankPoints ranks things the other way around (SET #1 again), if you look at the tables linked below.

EDIT: More stats ----- My actual Dodge/Parry/Block/etc. numbers:
SET #1 (http://i20.photobucket.com/albums/b229/rk76/SET1.jpg) --- SET #2 (http://i20.photobucket.com/albums/b229/rk76/SET2.jpg)

For interest sake: WoWArmory.com (http://www.wowarmory.com/character-sheet.xml?r=Llane&n=Nzrkl)

This will all eventually be solved (I guess) when I get a 4th piece of the Tanking Set, but since I'm only at 3 right now there's no set bonus to play with.

Unhittable for trash/Loatheb, Avoidance otherwise. It also depends on if you have BoSanc in the raid or not. I really can't pull off my Unhittable/BV gear on trash without one because of rage problems (especially if you have a Disc priest healing you). :S
