Block Rating and Block Value

Postby Vash » Mon May 05, 2008 9:42 am

Hi there,
I was just wondering in what cases should I stack Block Rating and Block Value,either just one of them or both.I mean for what types of encounters shoul this be an issue?For hard-hitting bosses or fast ones for example.

I hope I explained my question clearly enough

I consider Block rating to be the best way to get to uncrushable...thats about it...once you get there you can sub that out for other stats like dodge/parry/miss to stay uncrushable and keep healers happy

Block value, I believe, is more for AOE tanking....Since its a bunch of little dudes hitting you for small amounts...BV has a greater benefit...especially if you can full block them

That being said...with AOE tanking...block rating is helpful to ensure blocks once holy shield is eaten through and redoubt isnt up

All in all BV is comparable to armor for aoe tanking

BR is a stat to get you to uncrushable
Pally Tanking...all the work, half the respect, twice the insults.
