    Can't seem to achieve max block

    I'm a level 84 Druid and I'm using a Stormshield. I've already got 345 points into dexterity yet my chance to block remains at 67%. Am I missing something? It seems like I should have reached it by now. All of those points could be in vitality instead.

    Sorry, but you're just wrong. L84 druid hits max block with Stormshield at 204 dex. Are you sure you're not accidentally reading your CtH a monster or something instead?

    I think you are looking at the shield and not your character screen my windy has max block 75% with 220 at level 87

    DEX needed for max block = {(150 * clvl) / blocking} + 15, rounded up.

    Stormshield's chance to block for druids: 67% <-- You were looking this on the shield, not the blocking chance from character screen

    On the character screen, move the mouse cursor over the defense rating to see the chance to block. The value on the shield is the base chance.

    As stated you don't look at the shield itself, you look in your character screen.

    I think it's time to respec and put some of those extra dex points elsewhere ;)

    Why? All you need to fix it is a respec quest reward or a Token of Absolution.
