This doesn't add to your block chance does it? I thought I tried this on other day. And why Tia's Grace if I have dual tol barad trinkets?

Of course not, but 1% block value outperforms armor bonus from Austere Shadowspirit Diamond at that gear/block lvl.

That trinket is pretty much constant 285 mastery and 340 agility. Should be more CTC, and more avoidance.

Also Towilee, that helm is terrifying on a Tauren. Looked all distorted heh.

I remember seeing it somewhere in another post, when does the block meta overtake the armor meta, at like 86% avoidance/block or was it higher?

i read once avoidance reaches 35% and block 50% the block meta is better under that they are about the same...if under that though id recommend the armor since while they are about the same and armor is always there even on them bad luck streaks and even when u cant block ie stunned or have your back to a mob


and for the stam Vs mastery debate imo its all about balance and tuning to whats right for you and the encounters your facing that give you the most trouble for instance if you faceroll through halfus each week your not going to make gear changes based upon "hmmmm that should make halfus easier" you also need to consider your healers mana pool sure you could go pure stam gemming/enchanting etc but if your healers are oom after 30 seconds then its still a wipe on the other side you stack nothing but avoidance and tank with 130k boss does super hard tank nuke... your healers have full mana thanks to your low damage intake...but you get one shot nothing your healers with their full mana bar could do!

personally im aiming to sit at around 150K unbuffed and convert as much as i can into mastery after that...once i start working on hardmodes ill aim for more around the 16-170k mark!

perhaps I am missing something but how is this the "block cap" when you took 12 melee hits?

Correct looking at his WoL it doesn't seem like block cap he took several full hits.

Stun (Furious Roar), phase 2.

Block cap is brilliant on this fight, especially just after pull, when you tanking 3 dragons (maybe 4, soon? ;)) hitting you for 32-34k max. Smooth damage, no spikes, easy to heal.

I'm curious if it's possible to be block capped while still maintaining the 4pc bonus. I have found the 4pc to be absolutely amazing on the 3 heroic modes I've done so far (Chimaeron and Maloriak especially) and am curious if it's theoretically possible to reach the block cap while still retaining that bonus.

It's close. I'm at about 92% right now, and have 4pc. Only the chest is 372. If I had a mastery/avoid weapon (i.e. Acrid Death) and switched out some of the avoid/avoid off-set pieces for more mastery-heavy options (agi/mastery/threat for example) I think I could reach it while keeping 4-piece.

You could wear this stupid mastery trinket you wouldn't normally wear: http://www.wowhead.com/item=62469/impatience-of-youth, but I don't think it's wise to reach 102.4% at the expense of a comfortable effective health threshold on progression as of now (with the exception of Chimeron).

Now in 5-man heroics, sure. :D

I'm having a tough time deciding if I should block cap or not. I'm running ~90% CTC currently and have the gear to hit 102.4%, but it requires dropping ~31k HP fully buffed (regemming, new head and shoulder enchants, and new trinkets). Going from 192k->161k is a big difference especially on any encounter with magic burst components just to pick up that extra 12% block. I *feel* like waiting until I get a couple of different pieces such that I don't have to neuter my Sta as badly is the correct plan of action.
