Break em up and get ironshields. I replaced dodge with steelweave because of Sunwell radiance.

O-o are you high or something?

dodge gives more avoidance than steel weave, Steelweave gives defense..You only use steelweave if your gear is lacking defense (and mine certainly is at 477!Dont worry I am crit immune I know how to play stats >_<)

He is right. 0.03% dodge vs. 0.2% block is quite a easy descision if you arent immune to crushing blows like in Sunwell (screw you, Radiance!). Defense gives avoidance, too, you know? :P

I was assuming uncrushable with the old enchant...

Sunwell radiance basically makes it really hard to be uncrushable...127.4% needed steelweave 'may' help but its not giving more 'avoidance' block is not avoidance sorry.

Twin eredars can or one of them

"Break em up and get ironshields. I replaced dodge(12 dodge rating) with steelweave (12 def rating) because of Sunwell radiance(-25% avoidance)."

The whole statement doesn't make sense, I replaced avoidance enchant with slightly less avoidance enchant because of the 'ignore avoidance' bosses in sunwell gain.

I know the enchants are close but damn it you don't replace an avoidance enchant for a lesser avoidance enchant for a 0.3% increase in BLOCK when your facing a 25% negative in dodge+miss..

0.2% Block. Even if you aren't able to reach 127.4% avoidance + block, filling up the attack table by any means is helpful, especially if oyu do not lose any EH (you gain some if you're on a more complex construct of EH, btw). It is 0.17% more of you're attack table with only one enchant.

I'm glad they introduced the Stealweave enchant, because as soon as the anvil is unlocked and I pick up that 395armor +45stam +28 dodge ring of whatever stats, I'm going to dip to around 486def. I'll be replacing +120 armor with +12 defense.
