Resil vs Def rating

Postby styrm » Mon Aug 16, 2010 4:47 pm

My main concern is Def Rating, 540, noted. I am working on crafting the Pillars of Might and going to drop below the 540 target. I do wear the 264 PVP Neck with a good load of Resil. I had heard that Resil is a 1 - 1 ratio for Def. Is this accurate. Figured this is the place with the people in the know.

Once I get home I will post my armory to assist in this question.

Thanks for your time all, so love this site, getting my "WOW Fix" at work. :twisted:

1 resilience rating is equal to 1 def rating FOR CRIT IMMUNITY ONLY. def rating gives avoidance as well as crit immunity.

I thought resilience was > def rating as far as crit chance reduction?

123 def rating = 1% crit reduction
89 resilience rating = 1% crit reduction

There.

94 resilience = 1% crit reduction
123 def rating = 1% crit reduction, 3% avoidance pre DR, 1% block.

4.92 def rating = 1 defense = 0.04% crit reduction, 0.12% avoidance pre DR, 0.04% block

You should be using the PvP shoulder enchant, giving 0.16% crit reduction (15/94) dropping the amount of def needed to 536. But yeah your neck will count to it, the important thing is to have 5.6% crit reduction between the two of them for a ??. Hovering over resilience and def both in game and on the armory will show the crit reduction they give you.

TY all,

Clear, and this is great, dont have to break the Stam gems up for the Pillars of Might. PVP shoulder chant is all I use now. The PVP neck is a beast as well.

Thanks for the quick responses.
