    Block chance = (Blocking * (Dexterity - 15)) / (Character Level * 2)

    So we need to know what level you're talking about. Let's be extreme and figure the Dex you'll need at level 90 to have 75% blocking.

    For the HoZ, base block is 82%, so the formula is:
    75 = (82 * (Dex - 15)) / (90 * 2)
    13500 = 82 * (Dex - 15)
    164.63 = Dex - 15

    So you need 180 Dex.

    For the Lidless Wall, base block for a Paladin is 50%, so the formula is:
    75 = (50 * (Dex - 15)) / (90 * 2)
    13500 = 50 * (Dex - 15)
    270 = Dex - 15

    So you'd need a ludicrous 285 Dex. :(

    If you had 180 Dex, to max out the HoZ, your block with the Lidless Wall would be (50 * (180 - 15)) / (90 * 2), or 45%.

    If you use Holy Shield, add that to the base chance (82% / 50%) and do the maths again. :)

    Nope... 82 was for the HoZ and 50 was for the lidless.

    Take the Blocking Boost from Holy Shield and Add it to those totals.

    So if you had 30% from Holy Shield, For HoZ it's blocking would be (82 + 30 = ) 112.
    Lidless would be (50 + 30 = ) 80.

    So to do the HoZ formula again:
    75 = (112 * (Dex - 15)) / (90 * 2)
    13500 = 112 * (Dex - 15)
    120.54 = Dex - 15
    120.54 +15 = Dex
    135.54 = Dex

    So with HoZ and Holy Shield that gives a boost of 30%, you'd need 136 Dex.

    Yep, as Alain said, it was 82 for the HoZ and 50 for the Lidless. Sorry, I should have written "82% or 50%", not "82% / 50%". Silly of me to mix mathematical notation with punctuation like that. :)
