View Full Version : Advice vs which shoulders

06-03-2009, 08:06 PM
I see that in the gear list of BiS the Shoulderplates of the Deconstructor are said to be better over T7.5. I just got these last night, I lose some Dodge, Block Rating, and hit. I gain Armor (slight), 3 HP, and some strength. When I check my stats I dont know if that 2% Block loss is good for the stats I gain?

Block is pretty meh (like the T7.5 shoulders).

Shoulders off Decon are much better imo.

I understand that block atm is not as good as we all want, but still 2%? I will wear them for now and try them out, but I am still not understanding the reasoning behind why they are better. Thanks for the reply though :)

I chose them because they also give a large amount of hit rating. I don't care that much for block rating - it's nice if its on something but I wouldn't go out of my way to get more block.

You gain:
3 Stamina
18 Strength
38 Armor
11 Defense
43 Hit

You lose:
6 Dodge
29 Block

Seems like a pretty easy choice to me.

Thanks, I didnt even factor in the def. It would allow me to retool and enchant my gear elsewhere. Thanks.
