    Question about block and dex and eld rune

    I know there is some kind of calc for this but i cant find it, so i ask here.

    For exaple:
    If you sock: Homunculus with an eld rune (7% more block)
    how much dexterity do you "win" on it?

    Scince i got max res++ i dont want to socket with um, and if i socket with shael it only brakes 1 block frame, not 2.
    So i think is the best socket Eld to win dex cause im going for maxblock.

    U can also comment 0 dex vs all vit if u want i think max block will payoff?

    (P&B pvp necro, enigma)
    :wave:

    Re: Question about block and dex and eld rune

    Found a calc:

    for level 90 i need:
    171dex with eld
    188dex without

    thats a dex "win" of 17

    doesn't sound much but if i compare 17dex with 17vit=
    34life win

    if i choose to go without eld i can socket with an jah = 50life win
    maybee jah is to expensive in a homunculus? i was thinking of upgrading a 200% one. the 106 str req is no problem with enigma and i win in the worst scenario 99 defense and the best is 231.

    Might be a bit off-topic but in my experience you want to have MB with Stormshield (usually Bered) against mêlée and Spirit against casters, switching items in the other slots to meet the desired FHR/FCR BPs.

    u might want to compare the socket of a 20 life 9 dex jool (i think those exist) or a jah

    both might serve u better

    Re: Question about block and dex and eld rune

    Blocking = baseblocking*(dex-15)/(2*level), capped at 75%.

    With other words, the amount of saved dex depends on base blocking and character level. You also have to check blocking each time your character gains a level and add a point or two to dex, to keep it at 75%.

    Blocking bonuses go to base blocking.

    A perfect ruby already adds 38 life, so eld wouldn't be better for characters with 2 life per point of vit (sorc, druid, necro).

    That's right, of course. The shield is a good place for getting things like resists for cheap, like 19 allres with a pdiamond, so it might be better to get life from a pruby in a socket of a helm or armor.

    that dex/life jewel would get me 4 extra life, sounds pretty hard to get hold on though :p

    9 dex/20 life jewels cant spawn, both are suffixes (and max life on a rare jewel is 8).
