Resiliance's impact in reducing defense

Postby Rom » Fri Jun 27, 2008 5:44 pm

I am something of a min-maxxer. I am sitting on 490 defense and 103.5% uncrushable. I have the opportunity to buy the Season 2 Mercilous Gladiators Gavel with its +18 resilliance.

My question is, how far can I let my defense go down and still remain uncritable versus raid because of the mace's resilliance? The S2 weapon could give me the chance to swap out a mixed gem (+defense and + something else) for a +stamina gem. However, I want to always make sure I am still above the threshhold.

As long as your crit reduction from resilience and defense add up to 5.6% or more, you're crit immune.

you get 3% passively so it has to add up to 2.6% from gear (5.6%)

That said, defense is pretty min-max. It's nearly as much avoidance as dodge, and often in places you can't get dodge.

I don't think OP is a druid. Paladins and warriors need 5.6% crit reduction from defense/resilience.
