  • Philosophical Prot question

    I was playing around with the talent calculator this morning (big surprise there) and looking at the top 2 tiers in Prot. My question is this, what do you view as more beneficial?

    1. Anticipation 5/5 - gives you +10 to defense
    2. Toughness - 10% to your total armor

    On it's face I want to jump on the additional +10 defense but when you look at our numbers, many of us have around 8000 armor. So which provides better damage mitigation assuming you don't take both?

    With the level of gear you are at Bear the +10% to Armor is more beneficial.

      What I did was choose +armor over +defense.

      With Tier1+ gear, you gain enough +defense to avoid most critical strikes (but not all, assuming Defense of 375+). Offsetting that risk, you have substantial +stamina to raise your HP and keep you up long enough for the healers to do their magic.

      Of course, consecutive crits against you CAN happen...and you will then die.:row__540:

        Thanks guys, that was my thinking, just wanted to make sure I wasn't overlooking something.

          imho... +10% AC is a better point spent... because you have a decent amount of DEF already.. and might be overkill.. while the AC will always be beneficial
