Well, that's assuming that you have some EH substitution you'd like to make that would put you below uncrit or uncrush if you didn't have the enchant. At endgame I'm not sure that'd ever be the case.


For those of us working with ZA/badge gear, though, it's a distinct possibility. Those pieces have my defense awful close to 490 and my avoid+block awful close to 102.4%.

Oh yeah, it's excellent for people in that position. Since Lore and Mortehl are both in T6 content my comment was coming more from that perspective.

But it's only .03% less pure avoidance than straight dodge... it's not very significant.

Of course, but something > nothing. Like I said, if you're near the line on crit or crush go defense, but if you're well clear on both account you might as well go dodge.

Right, but less is less, all things being equal you should go for the one that provides more benefit.

Lots of things are cheap for enchanters, since they can consistently sell 20g shards like candy.

I think I might use this, assuming I ever get the shield from Jan'alai, my def will be down to 490. Which is fine, but I'd prefer it to be higher =P Losing that much def for a (superior) shield makes me cry, so this cloak enchant can help balance the scales =D

Well ATM there be only one cloak worth wearing (unless for some oddball reason you need the hit cap for taunt, AS or for something specific) the heroic badge one.

Since that cloak is already an EH cloak and an avoidance cloak in one, you may as well get 3 and put all 3 enchants on them -.-

Of course, I'll be sticking to my armour for bosses.

also note, that I think a bunch of us will be losing defense rating when getting the badge ring, so these defense enchants will help cover that.

i think defense will be going on my good old Devilshark, which is in my Block Value set. Which, being composed primarily of ZA gear, is horribly low in defense.

If I ever get pepe's, it will go on that, more than likely. Currently using slikk's with +dodge on it, but I have recently found myself looking for more +def as I'm skirting 490 depending on trinket setup.

The main reason this is an issue is due to using Illidari Runeshield as my tanking shield over Coldarra (which is about equal to both Nightbane and Crest).

I will also be putting +def on my chest as it will allow me to swap around trinkets and such without having to worry about the 490 crit cap.
