Defense rating while leveling

Postby esthera » Thu May 15, 2008 4:35 pm

Is there a Defense cap while leveling? If not, how can I determine my defense level? My pally is 62 and in the skills tab, it says she is 330. Adding +DEF gear doesn't change the total at all. I'm a little confused trying to determine what her stats actually are...

Thanks :)

Yeah there is a cap while leveling but it's based on the level of the mob you are attacking. So it'll vary quite a bit, but I don't think it's all that big of a deal. Look at the defense tab on your character sheet (character tab) to get your actual defense value, the defense listed on the skills tab probably just shows your level based defense, and doesn't include gear.

Thanks, it seems so obvious now. :)

Yeah, it doesn't show on the skills tab I believe.

Just add the +defense from mousing over your defense rating in your character pane. There is no effective cap on it as far as I can tell.

I leveled through my 60s with mostly +def and stamina gear. Made those large groups of melee mobs pretty easy. However, don't worry about it too much, and don't expect to take 10+ mobs at once until you're a little more geared up at lvl 70.

I leved 50-58 AoE grinding dalson's tear (i think that is spelled right) in WPL. I could only do 6-7 at first but at 53+ I was pulling all the mobs I could before they would evade (15-20)
