View Full Version : New Warrior

Hello all! I am a new Warrior currently lvl 78 but plan to be 80 this weekend! I was going over what gear I will hve at 80 and I have 524 Def from my gear alone. I read that you need a 689 def Rating to be def capped, so would 689-400(from skills) = 289 needed from gear? :confused: I can not link my profile ATM because the armoury is done but my name is Maxamix from the Eldre'Thalas Server. Thank you for any help

There are trinkets (and enchants) to help you get above 540 if you are having problems. The trinket from reg HoL has high def on it and it relatively easy to acquire.

It is 524 Def rating from gear alone, does Def skill not have an effect?

One thing you have to first do is distinguish between Defense, and Defense Rating. Once you do that it's simple.

The goal you are trying to reach is 540 Defense.

A level 80 will have a base 400 defense (once you get hit enough for the skill to go up).
So this means that you need another 140 defense from gear/enchants/gems etc.

Defense and defense rating are not the same thing. If you see a piece of gear that has 49 defense rating on it, that translates to ~10 defense. (1 Defense = 4.92 Defense Rating). But you don't need to do the math yourself.

The Defense RATING required to reach the 140 Defense that you need is 689.
