Block Value Gear (T5 Instances)
As per Cider's request this is my current block value gear. After all buffs/equations it puts me at 823 block value before trinket and 1052 after trinket.
There are more pieces in the T5 instances like the T5 gloves/pants that would add quite a bit more block value to the set.
54 T4 Head (ZG enchant)
29 Steam Hinge Neck
32 T5 Shoulders
38 Farstrider Defender Cloak
45 T4 Chest
33 Vambraces of Courage
38 Iron Gaunts of Maiden
29 Sha'tari Vindicator Belt
0 T4 Legs (not legs with block value)
30 Red Havoc Boots
39 Seventh Ring of the tiristfallen
24 Dath'Remar's Ring of Defense
51 Shield of Impenetrable Darkness (block value enchant)
plus my strength (276 and i have no idea how that translates) as well as shield mastery
276 / 20 + 1 = 14.8sbv from str
soo 525+14.8 = 539.8
539.8*1.3 mastery = 701.74 O_o, that doesn't sound right. Cider what am I doing wrong O_o....
and nice gear, I'm far from any of that =(
I have probably only half of that list, and styleen's is unobtainable for me =(
What you're missing is that Shield of Impenetrable Darkness is 173 SBV with that enchant (the shield has 122 block, it has an equip bonus of +33SBV and a +18SBV enchant).
Total SBV = (1.3 x Equipped SBV) + [(Str / 20) - 1]
This should then shake out at (1.3 x 647) + (276/20) - 1 or 853 before trinket or 1113 after trinket.
Do you have the latest TankPoints Groundchuck? It calculates and displays SBV pre-trinket.
ah, didn't even look twice at the shield, no wonder I was off.
Arena shield ftw if you can get it though, stats are awesome.
I just figure my block value by checking the amount blocked in the combat log.
(arena shield is pretty far out of my grasp, I can't stand pvp)
lol yeh, combat log is probably easiest way (im stuck at work, no game! ;P)
same for me, I'm arena'ing now to get a shoulder upgrade for my dps set, but no clue what to do from there... 1hand axe? shield? the possibilities! 10 weeks later of course =P
