    Use this formula to calculate how much dexterity you need in order to have max block.
    Total Blocking = [(Blocking * (Dexterity - 15)) / (Character Level * 2)]

    Blocking = A total of the Blocking on all of your items. (E.g: Guardian Angel, Twitchthroe, Any Shield, Holy Shield)

    So you add:

    The listed block on your shield. Herald of Zak has an 82% block, whereas Stormshield has 77% on a pally. You can get this figure (%block) off Arreat Summit

    Then you add any + blocking modifiers on your items. For example Guardian Angel (+20%).

    Here is the example listed in the Strategy Compendium:

    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
