Reforging question

Postby Rorschach » Tue Jan 11, 2011 5:50 pm

Hi

I'm new here, this is my 1st post

In every guide I read about prot pally it is said to reforge parry/dodge into mastery BUT in one guide (I can't find it anymore) it says that you must reforge the one with the higher rating, not percent.

Rating or % ? Because right parry % is higher than dodge but rating is below

Thanks

Edit: sorry for my bad english

Generally reforge the stat with the biggest number.

In the end you want to end up with your total parry % one higher than dodge. Example: 12.5% parry and 11.5% dodge. Don't go to absurdities to nail that one percent exactly though.

Also note that you want to do this with full raid buffs, because you get a good bit of Agility (and thus Dodge%) from raid buffs.

Interesting. About how much dodge% do we get from Horn of Winter? (I remembered kings but forgot that.)

Well, it obviously will depend on how much you have before the buff, due to diminishing returns. But as an example:

theckhd wrote:Unbuffed: 152,765 HP, 12.3% dodge, 10.2% parry, 48.5% block
+Kings, Food, Flask: 165,169 HP, 12.4% dodge, 10.5% parry, 48.5% block
+Fort: 175,543 HP, 12.4% dodge, 10.5% parry, 48.5% block
+SoE: 175,543 HP, 13.8% dodge, 11.2% parry, 48.5% block


So in that example, Horn of Winter / Strength of Earth Totem gives you 1.4% dodge and 0.7% parry. That's for a "pre-raid" gear set of mostly 346 gear, the values will get a little smaller for full 359.
