Question about Pala block percentage "Chance to Block This is the formula: Total Blocking = (Blocking * (Dexterity - 15)) / (Character Level * 2) Where Blocking is (Shield Blocking + Holy Shield bonus) if you are using Holy Shield. Notice that even if you wonâ€™t be shown more than 75% blocking in your shield, its base chance to block might be higher (for example, Stormshield has 77% chance to block, and Herald of Zakarum has 82% chance to block for paladins, those are the numbers that you have to use)" -- straight from pala handbook by Ragnarod Ok I understand how to calculate dex needed at a certain level to reach max block and I understand some shield can get higher then 75% even though they don't list higher on the char screen. What I want to make a little more clear is the Shield Block + Holy shield part of the equation and find out what is the max block percentage one can reach. First what is the true block percentage cap? Is it 75% for all shields except ones with higher bases like HoZ and SS or is it always (shield block) + HS (ie 60% shield + 25% from HS = 85% to block) and if so is the cap at the 95% hard cap (since there is always a 5% to not block or not hit no matter how high a stat or attribute is). Here is what I am asking... I have a Spirit Gilded shield with 52% base to black and my HS gives 33% chance so in according to this equation I could reach 85% blockrate if i had enough dex even though it would only list as 75 on the char screen?
