Blocking for 10 Man
i m a protection warrior and currently rading in a 10 man hardmode raid (working at anub). I m not interested in 25 man raidng.
Since 3.2 Blockvalue gained several buffs. It got doubled and now gains 30% with crit block.
How good will blocking will be in this enviroment?
Befor everyone yells: Yes i know, everyone says block is crap, because bosses hit for 30k and 3-6k block isnt much ....
First i wanna show the numbers from the elitist jerks spreadsheet (i ve updated it for the 3.2):
DEFENSIVE STATS Char Sheet (vs lv 80)
Boss: 27k dps and 2 sec Attackspeed (remember its 10 man!)
Time to life:
So when i compare block rating and block value with Dodge or Parry. Its pretty close to it.
If i would add the 30% crit block buff in 3.2.2 Block rating would get stronger than dodge or parry.
Additional block isnt so spiky like dodge or parry. So even from a healer point of view, block would be preferable.
However i m no math genie and i dont know how the spreadsheet handles blocking. So i m asking you, if you could double check and tell me your impression for blocking in 10 man (not 25!!)
