I am putting together a prot pvp set and I currently have 187 (5.7%) hit rating. However, I still notice myself missing shield slams against same level targets. What gives? I thought the hit cap for same level is 5%.
It is not a mage with improved blink. It can be a druid in tree form or a rogue. Is my math wrong or am I just missing something?
I believe that vs night elves you need 7% hit because of their racial "quickness" (or at least that's what I read somewhere) Plus insect swarm reduces your hit by 3% So I guess you would need 10% hit to never miss a night elf w/insect swarm on you.
I googled it - late last year (perhaps when wotlk was released) many of the racials were changed up and one of those changes included making quickness a 2% chance to be missed where it used to be a chance to dodge (and I could've sworn it used to be just a 1% chance to dodge but I never played a night elf)
PvP hit cap is 5% before debuffs on all classes EXCEPT night elves - it's 7% versus night elves (again before debuffs could require as much as 10%). I use 6% hit myself but I wouldn't go much over 5% unless you can do it without sacrificing much else.
