View Full Version : Paladin Paladins Mastery, Devine Bulwark's relationship to Mastery

So my question pertains to my Block, when I mouse over it it reads "Your block stops 30.00% of incoming damage. Block rating of 0 adds 0.00% to block chance"

So logically I have overkilled my block. However my mastery, Devine Bulwark, increases your chance to block melee attacks by 18%. Each point of mastery increases block chance by an additional 2.25%"

So if I am reading this correctly, and I may not be, but if I am then I am way over on mastery point correct?

If I understand correctly that is a base amount. So at level 80 when you get mastery your block chance goes up 18% right away and then an additional 2.25% for each point like it says.

So there is no maxing out Mastery is that correct?

The max is when you have covered the combat hit table which I do not believe is possible in the current tier. So to answer your question no there is currently no cap. Here is a link that explains it.

You're right, you can't overkill on Mastery right now, certainly not in your gear. Keep stacking.

Yeah you need more Mastery you will be stacking it for a long, long time.

The numbers you described is a feature of Player Score and is not information listed to you from the game itself. I don't want to talk about Player Score but rather just tell you that absent end game gear you can't reach total combat table coverage. If you really want the right answer you go to maintankadin.failsafedesign and start reading.. You should understand completely the combat table and how this all plays in.

Here's a cheat link putting you into a section of this site I found useful but don't stop reading here
