Odd Shield Block Value Behavior
So I was curious how the block value was calcuated and ran some numbers.
Disclaimer: I have bad gear. Fresh 70 yet.
68 on shield
44 from other gear
11 from strength
+30% from Shield Mastery
What I expected was if I added those values together and multiplied by 1.3, I'd get my total block value.
68 + 44 + 11 = 123
123 * 1.3 = 159.9
However, my character pane shows only 156.
If I don't include strength in the multiplier, I get:
68 + 44 = 112
112 * 1.3 = 145.6 + 11 = 156.6
Which, if the game just rounds down does match.
So it looks like Block value gained from strength does not get modified by the shield mastery talent. Does this theory match with other people's values? Did I miss something?
