ARE You UNCRUSHABLE? FIND OUT THE EASY WAY!

Postby Darthpaxis » Fri Jul 06, 2007 7:49 am

Has anyone tried this yet? Does it work and make life simple for us?

/script DEFAULT_CHAT_FRAME:AddMessage("Need 102.4 combined avoidance. Currently at:",0.8,0.8,1)
/script DEFAULT_CHAT_FRAME:AddMessage(GetDodgeChance()+GetBlockChance() + GetParryChance() +5+(GetCombatRatingBonus(CR_DEFENSE_SKILL) + 20)*0.04,1,0.5,0)


I found this on one of my many RSS feeds Link
http://blessingofkings.blogspot.com/200 ... macro.html

It's very useful when trying to build a gear set when raid tanking. The only thing to note is that in the line:

(GetCombatRatingBonus(CR_DEFENSE_SKILL) + 20)

The + 20 assumes you have 5/5 Anticipation. If you don't, you have to change this line to reflect how much defense you are getting from Anticipation (0 - 20).

(Snagged from the WoW Paladin forums. Stuff like this makes wading through all the Ret/Holy sniping worthwhile.)

Edit: Added some spaces so the macro will wrap properly in Firefox. You may have to remove some spaces if it is over the macro character limit.

Edit: Changed GetCombatRating call to GetCombatRatingBonus call. Shortens the macro slightly.

Edit: Also, you have to activate Holy Shield before using this to get results with Holy Shield. Otherwise you'll look 30-35% worse than you really are.

Nice find! Going to have to try this with my various ItemRack sets to see what they sit at.

I snagged that from Coriel's "Blessing of Kings" blog the other day. It works. Just fire up Holy Shield, use the macro, it'll tell you where you're at.

Isn't that what TankPoints does, plus much much more?

Good, low overhead macro though.

TankPoints is still irreplaceable for the sheer amount of data it can give you for resist sets, and how much gear will sway your projected mitigation/avoidance, before you even put a single piece on.

Plus it's Ace. They're low overhead by design. :P

Well it's low overhead assuming you have other Ace mods, if you don't then it's actually probably more, and I'm an Ace supporter.


Easy on the caps in the title please.

Now I'm a complete and utter newbie (beyond "For Dummies" books) at macros et al, but won't that skew your Parry rate?
Since Char Screen Parry includes the bonus granted from Deflection, no?

It's not adding 5% parry, it's adding 5 to your total uncrushability due to the built-in miss rate.
