New Pre-Holy Sheild w/ Libram goal?

Postby Liadrin » Mon May 21, 2007 10:35 am

Since 2.1 is buffing the Libram of Repentance by 2 shield block rating, I just wanted to clarify what the pre-shield goal would be once the patch is released.

Currently, my understanding is that it's 67.4%, as you would ad 35% for HS/LoR to get the magical 102.4%. If I did the math correctly, the 2 points would add about .3% block, and thus the new goal is 67.1%? Please let me know if my math or my shield block rating to % conversion is wrong.

Thanks.

8 block rating = 1% chance to block
2 block rating = 0.25% chance to block

So your Holy Shield will add 35.25% chance to block.

102.4 - 35.25 = 67.15%

102.4 - 35.25 = 67.15%


...but 8 block rating = 1% is just an approximation. The actual ratio is 7.9:1, or 7.88:1 if you want to be even more accurate ;)


Thus the Libram will provide about 5.32% block in 2.1

Your best bet is to check your block chance while holy shield is up. But indeed, it's not 8, it's slightly better.
