    They're the same ring!

    Staunch Signet - Item - World of Warcraft

    or

    Solid Platinum Band - Item - World of Warcraft

    One has +34 Str, +51 Stam, 25 Def and 19 Parry.

    One has +34 Str, +51 Stam, 25 Def and 19 Dodge.

    Which ring is better, and why?

    (the question being asked isn't what ring i should wear. in case anyone missed that)

    dodge one is better. why? lower conversion rate of dodge ratio -> dodge %, dodge cap is lower than parry so it suffers less diminishing returns as well.

    That's why.

    and yes strange ring combination lazy developers?

    Ironically, I've got both of these equipped. ;p

    The dodge one is better, definitely. You get more avoidance out of that than the parry. I had both of these rings at one point too

    Um, isn't that answer dependent on how much dodge and parry the OP has already? If he has stacked a lot of dodge compared to parry, he may well get more avoidance from parry due to DR.

    That said, all things being equal (which they may not be) then everyone is correct that you get more avoidance per point of dodge than from parry.

    To be honest I don't think you can stack enough dodge at that gear level to have DR hit hard enough to outweigh the rating differential. But then again, I haven't looked at the maths, so feel free to outcalculate me

    I keep hearing people taking about gearing to avoid DR, but honestly isn't that still to come unless you gear in a gimmicky way? I would think the devs are doing something wrong if the initial wave of gear is already taking us up to the cap.

    Back on topic, they may be the similar, but how many times have you wanted to double up on a unique-equip ring =p.
