    wow is this correct?

    i recently signed up for Warcrafter.net and hadn't looked at it in a couple weeks. I got some new Kara gear about 2 weeks ago.

    According to Warcrafter it says my Avoidance is 65.18. Is that correct?

    The World of Warcraft Armory


    I am currently trying to build up my T4 set and I realize I have some crappy gems in there but once you Hit D 490 and a good amount of health should i do hit rating or dodge next if my Avoidance is 65.18?


    According to the Eh calc it also says my EH is 37108.17

    Warcrafter counts shield block rating in its avoidance calculation. Your effective health is most likely correct however.

    Warcrafters use of avoidance is reference to being crushed (dodge+parry+miss+block)

    A block can be described as "mitigation of a blow" OR "avoidance of a full hit or crushing blow". Reference is an important part of the use of the word avoidance.

    What you are chasing is "pure avoidance" and if you hover over the number you will have to add them up manually (dodge + parry + miss) on warcrafter.
    ** Remember Warcraft players fail in directions you never thought possible.

    Subtract your Block % from that value and you'll get your Pure Avoidance.

    ok so if Warcrafter says:

    Dodge Chance: 16.59%
    Parry chance: 16.17%
    Block Chance %: 22.3%
    Attacker Miss chance 10.96%

    My true Avoidance would be 43.72?

    Wow so i really should drop some stam gems for avoidance?

    Nah, you're fine at that avoidance level for the content you're doing. (since you mentioned t4, I'm assuming you're working your way out of Kara into Gruul/Mags).

    You have no need to at all, 43% avoidance is fine for the first half of t5 level content, and judging from your gear you still have a few kara level upgrades that would put you in the 45-50% range before you get to anything that requires that much.

    Get the gloves from Maiden, you will get a lot more mileage out of them.

    Badges dude. Badges. That's what you're getting out of Kara week after week while plate doesn't drop, and most of the badge items are better quality than a good portion of the kara gear anyway.
