    how many dex would you save by wearing this armor to get max block?

    Things like hoz already has 82% chance to block, 82%+20% from GA + Holyshield = ???

    Depends on the character level and the shield. Note that the % block listed on a shield isn't your final chance to block. Check the character screen for that (hover the pointer over defense).

    I know the 75% max block thing, just not aware of the fomula between block% shown on item and block% on char screen.
    for typical lvl 90 paladin using hoz, how many dex it will save to get max block with GA?

    Use the block formula
    http://strategy.diabloii.net/news.php?id=551#Chance to Block

    Total Blocking = [(Blocking * (Dexterity - 15)) / (Character Level * 2)]


    Example: A lvl85 Paladin with 100 Dex, Guardian Angel(20%), lvl20 Holy Shield (35%) and a Herald of Zakarum(82%).

    Total Blocking = [(Blocking * (Dexterity - 15)) / (Character Level * 2)]
    = (20 + 35 + 82 * (100 - 15)) / (85 * 2)
    = (20 + 35 + 82 * (85)) / (85 * 2)
    = (20 + 35 + 82 * (85)) / 170
    = (20 + 35 + 82 * (85)) / 170
    = (137 * 85) / 170
    = 11645 / 170
    = 68.5
    = 68% Chance to Block

    Re: guardian angel

    Total Blocking = [(Blocking * (Dexterity - 15)) / (Character Level * 2)]

    75 = (137 * (X-15))/(170)
    75 = (137X - 2055)/(170)
    12570 = 137X-2055
    14805 = 137X
    X = 108. You would need 108 dex for max block with the gear above. If you did not have a GA, then:

    75 = (117 * (X-15))/(170)
    75 = (117X - 1755)/170
    12750 = 117X - 1755
    14505 = 117X
    X = 123, so you'd need 123 dex without the GA. You save 15 dex with the GA, which is 45 life.
