    n00b question - parry

    Simple question.

    Does Strength still attribute to parry and a percentage of what can be blocked using a shield?

    100 strength grants you 27 parry rating. It does not change the amount of damage reduction from a block.

    On a similar note, agi no longer gives dodge or armor either (at least for prot warriors).

    There are no "noob questions" only the decison to remain wilfully ignorant. the only time strength or parry will interact will be if your totally CTC (block, parry, dodge miss) total over 102.4% in which case you will only get 102.4% -(parry+dodge+5%) chance to block.

    This is for all tanking classes other than druids.

    does or does not parry reset the PLAYERS swing timer? (parry haste) I know bosses DO NOT any more, but i cannot find a confirm or deny if players do.

    If a player parries an enemy's attack, their swing timer is hasted for the next melee swing.

    I thought they removed that mechanic as well?
