View Full Version : Low Block Value

Hi, first off I will post my armory.
The World of Warcraft Armory (http://www.wowarmory.com/character-sheet.xml?r=Magtheridon&n=Foxlarocks)

Okay, so currently my block value is very low. 1108 unbuffed.
I have 75 badges and I can't decide whether to buy Headplate of the Honorbound - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=47678) or hope I win a trophy on tuesday for Hellscream's Greathelm of Triumph - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=48463)

If I were to buy Headplate of the Honorbound - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=47678) then I would replace my Last Laugh - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=40402) with Sorthalis, Hammer of the Watchers - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=45442)

Should I not stress about block value?

If you are tanking ulduar 25 hardmodes (which I assume you are given that you have sorthalis) you will know how much damage a boss can do when in hardmode. If you have a boss like steelbreaker smashing your face with 35k fusion punches (which are nature damage) or Thorim at 10 stacks with you being crittable, any block value is going to pale into insignificance when compared with the damage you are recieving.

Paladins gear pretty much the same as warriors (although expertise is slightly less important) and I would definitely take the badges helmet and sorthalis over the T9.5+last laugh.

Hi, thanks I went and purchased it.
This is pretty much what a guildie and I came to as well.
