[Def-block-parry-dodge] advice

Postby lirael » Mon Aug 10, 2009 1:27 am

Hi
my guild is starting to run Ulduar 25. We have a new tankadin who asking what stats (between block, dodge, parry and def)he should be aiming for to be reasonnable for this.

I said that the requirements were:
- 540 def
- ~40-45 mitigation
- ideally he should reach the block cap of 102.4%

When this is obtained, he should in order of priority increase:
- mitigation (at what point does dodge rating becomes better than parry rating?)
- def
- block

please let me know if this is good advice for me to give or if I should shut my mouth and read more :P

For any raid instance, he's going to want to be uncritable. For Ulduar, and especially its hard mode encounters, he's going to want to exclusively stack physical effective health - i.e. stamina and armor. Generally the highest physical EH pieces have a decent amount of avoidance stats on them, so he'll never have to gem for dodge or parry, beyond the one red gem necessary to activate the meta.
