    Something changed, not at block cap anymore.

    Trying to figure out what exactly got changed and coming up blank. After the patch, reading all the advice here and maintankadin, I spent a good deal of time re-gemming/reforging to get to that magical block cap. Even then, I couldn't do it unbuffed, but I was close enough to be capped in a raid setting. My block was a little over 40, dodge was 21 and change, parry 20+. End result was that I was sitting about 86.7 according to the macro before heading into a raid.

    Here's the weird thing, I happened to check the other day, and now my block has changed (about 39.98% now) and I'm not quite hitting the cap. But I didn't change anything about my gear.

    So did Blizz change the coeffecients for mastery? Or did one of my enchants get changed? Kinda miffed, because it took a pretty good shuffle and a lot of gold to get me as close as I was at my gear level. Now it seems the bar got moved on me.

    Here's an armory to check out. Please don't make fun of the neck. I have the worlds worst luck getting an upgrade for that slot.

    Nothing can change blockchance except mastery. Raidbuffs, food etc don't influence it. My guess is that you switched a weapon or some other piece of gear or maybe reforged some mastery away again with a restore? Haven't read anything on changing combatratings at 80.

    Make sure you have ctc equipped and not a 2nd stam trinket, hopefully it's reforged 2. Nothing is changing til patch 4.0.3, so your mastery didn't change, make sure your not wearing a different piece of gear.

    If you are a paladin are you counting your ability usage into your block? As I recall one of your abilities adds to your block/avoidance....

    Have you forgotten to add in your 5% miss chance and 15% chance to block from holy shield?

    Yeah, I was taking those into account. According to the info I have so far, it says I should be striving for 87.2% (via the macro), and that Holy shield should make up the extra 15% bringing me to a grand total of 102.4%. And I was darn close, I think. Plus I think that there is one raid buff that will increase the percentage (can't remember but I think it was a DK horn).

    Anyway, I might be over-thinking it. But I swear I lost a bit somewhere without changing any gear. I've looked and looked. Probably not the biggest deal, but it bugs me. I keep thinking Blizz is messing with the mastery coefficients or something.

    Long story short. I think I lost less than 1% so it's probably not a game breaker.
