Block Value Raised?

Postby Ziggi » Wed Aug 05, 2009 10:55 am

So I did the 10 man last night along with quite a few heorics and i will admit i'm very disappointed with the block changes, i actually seem to be blocking for less. I haven't dove too deep into it yet but was wondering other people experience.

gear: http://www.wowarmory.com/character-shee ... Ziggtastic

I know it's not perfectly setup, i'm still in the middle of regeming and rebalancing enchants but none of that should change my BV. 10 man riad buffed i usually blcoked 1800-2200 depending on procs and buffs, now i seem to blokcing a little over 1700. :(

Thoughts appreciated and geming/enchant suggestions welcome

Thanks

I also heard Onyxia casts Deep Breath more.

Under no circumstances will doubling the block value from gear result in you blocking for less than before the patch.

trust me i thought it was odd as well. Like i said i haven't had a chance to look that much further into it, kind of hard to when you're tanking new encounters you don't know yet, so hopefully i'll get better chance to look at it tonight. Was just curious what other people experinces were.

anyone got something more useful then onyxia doing deep breaths more often?

Were you missing a buff like Kings? Horn of Winter? Are you a JC and lost some bonuses?

Have a log from before and a current log where you can just look and see "You blocked for X / You blocked for Y"?

the gems and such was what i was thinking at first but i completely missed horn of winter... I was missing my dk last night and that makes sense.

thanks for the thoughts.

What's everyone else now blocking?

3300-3500, depending on buffs.

Exactly the same as before... my gear has no block value on it.

Haha, yeah. I was thinking "this is too funny to be true - the lower item level libram going to be better than the higher one after the patch?". But it is true, well, and I won't complain about those 100 more BV considering my ShoR is still rather nerfed compared to before.

My SBV actually didn't go up much due to my gear setup (one piece with SBV), so I switched to a more block-oriented layout with 4pc. I'm still a bit disappointed, as my shield slams are weaker than before.

The shield block band-aid that blizzard implemented has been less than compensating. I really feel that blizzard will "try again" later when they see that most tanks still wont touch SBV with a 10 foot poll if the Bosses in the Coliseum hit just as hard as the Ulduar ones do.

I'm still one of those true believers that keeps my block set as the priority for upgrades.

I don't neglect the other sets, but if I won't roll against our warriors/DKs for a piece that doesn't upgrade my block set, I only take them if they are going to off-specs instead.

That's how I got Titanguard....other tanks already had theirs, I still planned to use Broken Promise, but the TG is in the bag for situational uses.

Well it wasn't changed when 3.2 came out. I haven't really made a point to check it since.
