This seems to be a "hi guys, check out my gear" post, which isn't really of general interest to the community.
Hello, all. Long time reader, first time poster!
I've been working on a full block set for quite some time. In the interest of reviving the discussion with some field testing, here's what I've come up with:
chardev.org v6 ~ a World of Warcraft character planner
Some of the stats are a little off on that template, but all enchants/gems are correct. Here's what in-game character sheet says:
24,977 armor (devotion aura up, 61.12% reduction)
28.53% block rating
2014 block value
103.02% avoidance according to the handy avoidance macro (just barely unhittable)
First an foremost, I realize that I could get a instead of , but since I'm still at 103.02% avoidance, I felt that I really didn't need more Block Rating and preferred the passive block value. A +90 STR Greatness Card would probably trump the GA-B since it procs more than once every 2 min, but I haven't been able to bring myself to spend 10k for a deck, yet.
Secondly, I chose over for two reasons. 1) It hasn't dropped for me and 2) TCD has more BV and more stam. The only benefit of SotG is higher block rating, which again, I feel I don't need.
The char developer doesn't include the 50 stam from mining that I have. I also know that I'm missing a 41 stam gem. I usually use my 226 Malygos quest neck with a 41 stam gem in it, but I may put it in my boots, instead. Not sure. Regardless, it'd be a bit more HP for this block set.
As far as practicality... I wore this set and MT'ed Loatheb in Naxx25 last night. I think I was around 2274 BV raid buffed and managed to take a whopping 7700ish physical damage the entire fight. What fun. I'll post a WWS whenever we get it up.
