    Block value from strength not calculating right?

    According to my tooltip in game, I am getting 513 block value from 1047 strength (1047 / 2 = 523.5).

    I then removed all gear and talents, reducing my base strength to 175 (I am an 80 draenei warrior).
    The tooltip now showed a block value of 77 (175 / 2 = 87.5).

    I equipped a +29 strength weapon which gave me 204 strength.
    The tooltip now showed a block value of 92 (204 / 2 = 102).

    If I subtract 21 from my strength values across the board I get:
    154 / 2 = 77 block value
    183 / 2 = 91.5 -> round up -> 92 block value
    1026 / 2 = 513 block value.

    Is this as designed or possibly a bug related to draenei base stats?

    The equation for BV is:

    BV_from_Gear + STR/2 - 10 = BV

    So with 1047 STR and 0 BV from gear you should get:

    0 + 1047/2 -10 = 513.5, which checks out.






    EDIT: The old equation (TBC and before) was

    BV_from_gear + STR/20 - 1

    So you can hopefully see how the -10 got in the new one.

    Essentially, calculate BV as you think it would be calculated and then subtract 10 from that.
