View Full Forums : Question?

I have noticed that for Bear tanks you need 415 defense to become uncritable.

I have also noticed people mention resilience rating.

Is there a simple formula as a trade off between the 2?

I am assuming 3/3 in Survival of the Fittest.

Looking for something like this......

400 defense and 22 resilience rating = Uncrittable (juat and example)

Thanks in advance. I have found a wealth of information on this site.

To determine whether you have reached the crit cap through Defense and Resilience, type the following into chat:

/script DEFAULT_CHAT_FRAME:AddMessage(2.6-(GetCombatRatingBonus(CR_DEFENSE_SKILL)*.04+GetCom batRatingBonus(CR_CRIT_TAKEN_MELEE)),1,0.5,0)

If the number is 0 or negative, you are uncritable. If the number is above 0, you require more defense or resilience vs level 73 bosses.

I haven't done this yet, but it certainly seems like the best way to determine critability when you have a mixture of Resilience and defense.

Hallo druid :> Welcome to our druid grove.

Druids need 5.6% crit reduction to be PvE crit immune. SotF = 3% crit reduction, which means druids only need another 2.6% reduction. While in game, open your character sheet and mouse over your defense rating and your resilience rating, and add the two percentages together. If added together they are over 2.6%, you are crit immune.

Character frame does round up, so it's not the best to use that for "real" numbers.

Um, question, what do we do against crushing blows?

Here's the quote from wowwiki regarding Druids vs. Crushing BlowsForget it. You will eat crushing blows. This is why bears have their high armor.

It rounds to 1/100 of a percent, it's not a concern.

How much dodge would you need to be immune to crushing blows? Like over 100% raid-buffed? o_O

01-16-2008, 08:39 PM
According to wowwiki you need 102.4%.

You'd be immune to physical damage with that much dodge, surely?
Unless you got hit from behind :>
