Missing even with 8% Hit?

Paladin
Was something changed or what?

Few minutes ago, i was doing Heroic Deadmines and while attacking Venessa VanCleef(Spelling), my Avenger's Shield missed twice.

Even with 8.00%. Hit Rating.

Is this suppose to be a bug or something?
Avenger's Shield counts as a spell, right? Don't spells have a 17% chance to miss?
Right, AS is a spell and thus has a 17% hit rating needed for it.
wtf are you reading the forums for go get your 17% hit! lol
You get 8% spell hit from selecting Prot as a Specialization (Touched by the Light), and 8% melee hit equals a little over 9% spell hit, which means you are both spell and melee hit capped.

I believe that she has a deflection-like ability which may have been the culprit.
yep deflection does suck
Ahh, thanks for the reply.
Probably the deflection like thingy then.

Cause I'm pretty sure i'm at 17.38% spell hit.
Yeah you are spell hit capped. AS is a spell therefore should not have a deflection. Deflection=parry. I could be wrong but i don't think so.
Like most paladin abilities, Avenger's Shield is a bastard child between spell and melee and doesn't work like you'd expect it to. However, it got deflected because she does Deterrence like a hunter. Doesn't matter what your stats are when she has 100% chance to deflect.
Another question then:

Is deflection the same as missing.

I'm pretty sure i missed. There was some deflected too though.
Which i find pretty weird.

You were debuffed by the birds running up to the boat. It reduces your chance to hit by 50%.
Her deflection spell never says deflected.

It just says parry or miss.

My hammer of wrath and exorcisms always miss on her while she's deflecting.
My TV's, Crusader Strikes and White hits always get parried.

Pretty sure that's not the case. It doesn't even last for 10seconds, let alone minutes.

Ah.... I see.
Thanks for the enlightenment. =D

Edited:
I think i get it.
Only Hammer of Righteousness will get deflected, others like Avengers Shield will be misses.

Thanks
