So Block% on Helm and Shield no longer count in PvP?
Barbs can get over 40% Block percentage and I think that is just as good as 40% Dodge.
Nice thoughts, but there are other ways to avoid attacks from players other then Dodge.
Now that we have PVP Barbs are stacking over 500 Dex to get a pathetic %20 dodge trying to compete with Dh's and Monks who are owning in PvP since they Dodge %50+ of incoming attacks. Taking 0 Damage from 1/2 of the attacks thrown at you is a lot better than the extra %4-%7 damage reduction from Armor or All res other classes get.
Dex Classes can also stack Armor and All res in large amounts from gear. While NO Str or Int class can stack dodge any other way besides DEX!! We need armor, weapons, shields or legendarys to have some Dodge. Maybe Dodge would have to have a increase to diminishing return to make it so the bonus Dodge available on gear wouldn't further benefit the Dex classes.
Having Barbs almost required to stack 500+ Dex to compete in PvP is insane! The way the 3 main stat defensive bonuses work now is broken. Please Fix!!!
A Monk can stack 8,000+ Armor w/o any STR
A Barb can stack 800+ All Res w/o any INT
The difference is when you only gain 2k-3k armor or gain 200-300 All res from your main stat your only getting %5-%8 or so Damage Reduction.
With 2k-3k dodge you have %30-%40 chance to take 0 damage
Because AR can be on any piece of gear, and goes up to 80, which is 800 Int, which is impossible to have on any piece of gear. This is a design flaw to begin with, so the comparison is irrelevant. No class stacks INT to increase AR (even WD or Wiz), they look for AR gears.
Stop pulling numbers out of your a$$. Maximum armor bonus from gear is almost 4000 (http://www.d3rmt.com/guides/diablo-3-item-stat-maximum-values/). No class can have 8000 armor with out any str. Your barb barely has 8000 armor with all str gear and Tough as Nail. Monk theoretically could, but since the nerf to StI, monks would need 8000 Dex to be able to pull that off. Oops.
