Dodge or Parry
Return to board index
I know that dodge gets a better point for point return then parry but I am currently spect blood with
Should I gem for parry or dodge and what is the soft cap where you begin to get diminishing returns.
Any help would be much appreciated and thanked : )
(btw for tanking if it wasn't clear XD )

Only gem for Stamina/Strength/Hit/Exp as a DK, unless it's a hybrid gem and you absolutely want Meta/Socket bonuses.
DR is constantly in effect, but you start to feel it at around 20% for parry and somewhere just under 30% for dodge (or so a few Tank friends with better gear have told me).
The "cap" is something like 47% parry and 88%~ish percent dodge.
Made up numbers from this point
So at 40% Dodge/Parry each, you may end up needing 500 dodge rating to get 1% dodge, and 10,000 parry rating to get 1% parry.
Similarly, to get from 46% to 47% parry you probably need close to infinite amount of parry rating (google says the cap is 47.003525%).
Having said that, even if dodge rating gives more bang for buck, if you encounter 2 items, one with 20 dodge and the other with 50 parry, the 50 parry is still an upgrade depending on what you already have.
I recommend using either Tankpoints or Ratingbuster (i use ratingbuster) to help figure out these things.
