I would venture an opinion that it isn't really a very useful exercise, as you cannot benefit from mastery sub level 80 (i.e. your block chance remains static until then) and thus would not be able to reach anything close to full CTC anyway. Unless you want to learn how to use excel spreadsheets and learn about the maths that goes on in the background when you are playing WoW of course.
If your over cap as a warrior would you still want a little more mastery because of the crit block? As well as stam because it would not be wasted stat since having a 60% block is better the a flat 30% block? or just go stam?
I am new to all this tanking..but very keen to learn more. I added my unbuffed information into your spreadsheet. " dodge 2249, parry 2493, mastery 2695, strenght 3692"...my total avoidance & block is 94.93. So the results ask the following: Block to go -7.47 and Mastery to go -595 rating.
Very confused as I just purchased the trinket Fire of the Deep with 458 mastery rating. Yes as I am new..I feel rather stupid not understanding this...As I explain to my children "Life is a learning curve and you are never to old to learn"..thank you.
If you want some help reaching full CTC, feel free to make a thread in the appropriate forum (HALP! I need advice!). This thread is for discussing the spreadsheets
Remember to set the raid buffs you have available, the drop-down boxes have a list of the most common buffs. If you set blessing of kings, mastery food and battle shout to "yes", you only need another 441 mastery rating to cap your Combat Table Coverage (explained in the guide linked in my signature).
Ok..so I need to find another 595 mastery from new gear I guess. Sad point for me was I had to replace my item lvl 365 trinket with +510 stamina with the item lvl 393 458 mastery rating trinket....Not sure if that is a good trade off...kinda like stamina for survivability. Again thank you for your help Fetzie..You are very wise..and I will refer to you as "The Great Oracle of Knowledge"
