    HP vs Avoidance.

    I recently got [item]Moroes' Lucky Pocket Watch[/item].

    Since I have Avoidance minimums to work with, working it into my gear is proving to be a bit of a pain.

    To remain Uncrush, I've had to trade a few pieces of gear:

    [item]Figurine of the Colossus[/item] vs [item]Moroes' Lucky Pocket Watch[/item]
    [item]Battlescar Boots[/item] vs [item]Boots of Elusion[/item]
    [item]Mark of the Ravenguard[/item] vs [item]Strength of the Untamed[/item]

    The left being what I was wearing [socketed w/ SSoE], with the Higher EH and the left is what I'm thinking of moving to, with higher Pure Avoidance.

    I lose ~330HP and gain 4% Pure Avoidance from the trade.

    12757 with +4% Block vs
    12427 with +4% Dodge

    Is the trade worth it?

    My guild has Gruul on farm, and as far as I'm aware we'll be working on LootReaver next, which, if I get the T5 Shoulders should be a good upgrade from my D3 [+~1% Avoidance], which'd let me go from Elusion->Battlescar.

    My personal preference is to stack avoidance only to the point of uncrushability.

    That is pretty damn much. You can forget socketing 12sta if your goal is this...
    EDIT: Unless you are a paladin ^^

    I'm not talking about passive uncrushability.

    every warrior at 490 defense and 5/5 deflection already has 35% pure avoidance from base stats and miss alone. ;P

    Raid buffed, I've been sitting a fairly large amount above 50&#37; Pure Avoidance [GoA is huge. I'm uncrush without it. Put me in the caster group and chuck WoA out >.<]

    I grabbed NB's shield last night which is another Sta hit [over Crest], but a fairly decent upgrade in Armor.

    Hopefully next week I get Maiden's Gloves/Neck, Wrynns and Panza'thar, that'd more than easily let me use the Pocket Watch with my EH set.

    Yeah, I assume all tanks are uncrittable. But you're right, it's not the safest assumption.

    I know it's been posted many times, but here is my version : Uncrittable > Uncrushable > EH > Threat > Parry > Dodge.

    I agree with that list.

    For uncrushable though, there are two different things:

    Uncrushable with shield block up: No gear is needed for this for a warrior. For a pally, this is a factor.

    Passive Uncrushability: Can only be reasonably achieved with very high level gear. Not worth giving up EH or threat for, unless you are almost there in your base gear (T6)
