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.

thx but can you help me on this again? is that 82 divided by 50?

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.
