Proc Pally Avoidance Value

Recommended Posts


I still confuse about the avoidance cap. From link above, it mean adding parry%+dodge%+block%+missed by an attack(5% - i read somewhere on wow forum) then my avoidance right now 105.94.

Let say, the additional info i read ( the value to be missed by an attack = 5%) is wrong, so did my avoidance is 100.94?

What is the actual value to be missed by an attack?

Sorry for poor English.

P:S Can any delete my comment there? I abit sleepy when i asking that question then after i wakeup i realize there are forum link on top. I should ask on forum and not on that article. My bad :(

The chance to be missed by an attack is 5%. It doesn't show up anywhere on your character sheet, but it remains true.

Obviously, what you need is 100% chance to not be hit. But this applies when fighting mobs of your own level. Since raid bosses are always 3 levels higher than you, you need 102.4% to account for their higher level.

Don't worry about your comment on the guide, and let us know if you have more questions!

Here my character on armory


My reforge my stat according to wowreforge.com

I'm gemming mastery because i want to reach avoidance cap.

I been wondering because one of my guildies (also proc pally) only gemming stamina and enchant stamina on his gear. He didn't reach avoidance cap at all. Is this a bad choice?

Your reforging is mostly good (I'll tell you what's not perfect below). I strongly believe (and theorycrafting/other top Protection Paladins agree) that going for Stamina before reaching the avoidance cap is a bad choice. It makes him take a lot more damage and be harder to heal overall. The only times that his choice of Stamina would be good is in a fight where there is predominantly magic damage against the tank, which is quite rare.

According to your armory, you are past the avoidance cap. You have 105.72% avoidance now, not counting any possible buffs to Mastery that you may be using during raids (elixir or food). This means you can drop a few Mastery gems in favour of Stamina.

I see, how about if i use parry/dodge gem instead of stamina?

Yes, those work as well as Stamina. After your avoidance cap is reached, you can choose between more Dodge/Parry (which is stronger than blocking attacks, so your avoidance will "improve") or Stamina.

Well thanks a lot of answering my question. Trying to be better tank by reducing healer stress to heal me Posted Image

Here's the kind of tank I love. As opposed to: "I'll stack stamina and the healers will just have to heal me LOLPosted Image".

Hey Vlad, i'm stuck in the same problem as him. I follow your guides on how to gear optimize and reforge stats to reach avoidance cap, but i've got a new trinket that brought me some doubts.

Here is my armory http://us.battle.net.../Cilpe/advanced

And these are the trinkets i have on my bag: inv_stone_sharpeningstone_04.jpgResolve of Undying inv_qirajidol_rebirth.jpgIndomitable Pride inv_fabric_ebonweave.jpgVeil of Lies.

Can you please give me some advices on what to use and then what i need to reforge to optimize my gear, reaching avoidance cap and still do not waste stats?

Thanks in advance and keep up the good work!

Hey! With new 5.0.4 hit the realm, now CTC no longer in my concern but right now either I should reach hit and exp cap (7.5%) or not. Can any one explain a bit to me?

I would recommend in reaching these caps if possible(exp may be unreachable till more gear comes out) but the way SoTR works now, it is pretty important that you hit things, mastery gives 2 buffs when you use sotr. A) it gives a damage reduction based off your mastery, and it also stacks Bastion of Glory that increases your next WoG cast by a % based off your mastery. Landing SotR becomes important. Also note that parry diminishes much much slower than dodge now. Posted Image

      Been playing as 29/11/0 so far, extra crit heals is obviously good for keeping my team alive.
      However, I never go OOM, so I want to get some more burst damage. What is the best way to make a hybrid paladin? 
      Holy shock with spell power? I want to do burst damage when my heals get interrupted, so holy shock might be bad.
      7 Prot is the bare minimum for me, Imp Freedom is so strong.
      18 Prot is also very strong, extra stuns together with grenades is powerful for BGs.
      25 Prot for reckoning might be the best burst damage available, you could even heal with a 2hander. But this requires alot of investment and SETUP.
      How good is SoC for a 1hander? Spell power gear? Maybe using Thrash Blade to do melee damage while healing geared.
      What kind of gear? Spell power or strength?

      <Fun is for Casuals> is a serious but casual horde guild on US-Hyjal. We are serious about raiding without the intense hours. Even when recruitment status is none, we will accept exceptional applications for all classes. For a full list of what we're looking for check out https://funisforcasuals.enjin.com . 
      Our raid times are Tuesday and Thursday from 5:00PM to 8:00PM server (PST) with raid invitations sent out a few minutes prior to that.

      We're interested in you if you fit the following criteria:
      Raid attendance is essential. We don't want people sitting on the bench but we also want to make sure we're raiding 6 hours per week. We expect you to be available for at least 90% of our raids. Be on time and prepared for raids. This includes flasks and other consumables. Discord is mandatory and a working mic is desired. You're appropriately geared for our current content. Effort and thought have been put into your gear/gem/enchant choices. You wouldn't show up for a job interview looking like a scrub, why would you apply to a guild with improper gems or some insane spec? You're up to date with your class. We expect our raiders to perform to the best of their abilities. You have a computer that's not run with hamster power or requires a hand crank. Some encounters are taxing on a computer's resources so if your toon can't even handle Orgrimmar it's not likely to do well with 20+ whelps that need AOE'ing.
      You may be interested in us because:
      <Fun is for Casuals> uses the personal loot system. There is no loot council, or DKP. We won't eat your babies the first time you stand in something you have no business being in. Repeatedly do it and we'll break out the bibs and BBQ sauce. We provide a limited amount of consumables and flasks on hard mode raid nights. Discord isn't a circus during raids. We're focused on the job at hand and you should be too. We don't want someone to miss a an interrupt because they were distracted by fart jokes. We are not interested in you if you fit the following criteria:
      You roll on BoE items then sell them. Unwilling/unable to spend an entire evening on one boss during progression. While this is rare, it can happen. Drama queens. If you have a problem bring it up to E. This is his job. Don't announce it in guild chat or during a raid. Your issue will have nothing to do with 99% of the guild. You are 17 or younger. We try to keep guild and discord chat PG-13 but occasionally a few four letter words appear out of nowhere. Additionally, we don't want someone's mom interrupting their raiding to get homework or the dishes done. Follow the instructions at https://funisforcasuals.enjin.com/ under the Recruitment tab if you would like to apply.
      If you have any question, feel free to contact E. at DbD#1309
