the threat thing doesnt matter anymore this patch,ive done dualwield tanking and i had the same amount of dps as i always had. plus i was harder to hit with two of the parry runeforges on my wep. the only downside was that i had a 1h rune wep fighting for me instead of two. its doable but i probably wouldnt do it in a heroic progresson raid.

I remember some math stating that the best way to rack up avoidance was stacking defense rating after you were hitting harsh diminishing returns on the ratings, but I don't remember if it was right or the reason why.


It contributed to dodge/parry/miss before DR.

It required a LOT of diminishing returns before it gave more avoidance than dodge.

The DPS seems unlikely, since Blood DPS, or what DPS they do have, is geared around having 2-handers.

And... how were you way harder to hit? The 1-hander runeforge for parry is 2% per each weapon, so 4%. The 2-hander runeforge is 4%, there's no difference.

Edit: Meant to quote Symphogear to respond to.
