Resilience and Def no longer additive?

Postby Dantriges » Tue Apr 28, 2009 3:20 am

I put on some resilience fr my frost tanking gear.

Now a tank friend told me that Blizz stated that you could n longer profit from resilience and def together for reaching crit immunity. Is that true?

I use high defense items like the crafted helm and shield for my FrR set.

I use def gems and the Thaddius trinket to stay uncrittable in my FR gear... a better option than gemming resilience since you're actually able to maintain some level of avoidance.

I can remember someone telling me (I knew he was wrong, though) that resilience doesn't reduce crit chance against mobs. It's probably just people associating resilience with pvp and so thinking that it's effect is exclusive to pvp.

This was a rumor that was started during the beta (I believe). There was a blue post from GC and it was one of those kind of things where he says, "ok... X is a problem. He are some very simple ways we can fix X. Keep in mind we wont do any of these, but use these as a general example" and he listed some stuff that had to do with people doing pvp to get better gear faster than what pve had to offer.

I know thats kinda vague... lol, but its all from memory from like 7 or 8 months ago.

*EDIT*
And the rumor wasn't about actual resilience, but that the PvP gear would not give you ANY stats in an instance.

Is there an easy formula/conversion factor for this?

If I have 530 defense, how much resil do I need to reach crit immunity??

The easiest way is to just sum the %.

This is a long-standing myth that has never been true.

Let A = crit reduction from defense, and B = crit reduction from resilience. Assume A, B are contained in R+. such that 0<A+B<C where C is a countable number contained in the set of R+ where 5.6 <= C < infinity.
Find A, B such that A + B = 5.6% qed

Alternatively, you could just ignore frost resistance. Hodir does not require it (though it makes the 10 man a little easier).
