Puts things into a very interesting perspective for Prot Paladins.
Do I continue to stack mastery to 102.4% damage to smooth damage intake and get the most out of the CD, or do I begin stacking avoidance to the now much higher breakpoint, providing potentially more overall damage reduction but reducing the effectiveness of this new cooldown and having a more spikey damage intake.
Once your block + parry + dodge + miss chance is 102.4%, more mastery does nothing for you, so instead of stacking mastery, you stack dodge and parry, while keeping the two ratings equal after buffs, and lowering your mastery so that you're just over 102.4% but not too far over.06/17/2011 01:44 AMPosted by ÄshôkI thought the overall avoidance cap was 102.4% is that just the cap for mastery? If so that changes many things that would have made us far better choices as tanks in the upcoming patch.
Currently the break-even point for Mastery to provide as much benefit as dodge or parry is around 10-11% (each, not combined). This will go up to 17-18~% in 4.2
That means Dodge and Parry will be more valuable up to a much higher percentage of rating, which will inevitably mean less points invested into mastery, which means less combined CTC overall, however potentially more overall damage reduction by investing those points wisely.

10 seconds of 20% more block value is just worthless.
