    Wind Druid, To get Max Block or no?

    I'm having trouble where to pour my last 100 stat points into
    my strength is enuff to wear everything so thats ok
    right now i have 25% block with ss with my 83 dex i have, i was wondering if i should add another 100 dex and get 75% block or should i add stats into vitality and get about 1000 more life after Bo and oak?
    Any Commends would be great

    thanks

    if you are already using stormshield as your choice...and have 156 strength i don't see why not. blocking 75% of melee attacks is invaluable, and a must if you're considering pvp

    if you agree say Aye

    You will find it much more difficult in PVP without maxblock.

    Unless your sole opponents are casters - Max Block and DR are quite useful when pubbing.

    Another vote for blocking! I even favor blocking for summoners! The DR & Block are just too tempting, hope you think about 'shael'ing the shield as the druid block speed animation is pretty slow.

    cheers,

    AYE! If u wanna dominate pvp max block would b something to go for

    especially if u wanna get a lil closer to melee pvpers

    the way i see it...theirs nothing wrong with blocking 75% of the attacks they throw at u do u?

    blocking helps vs mainly these 2 classes
    ww barb (bvcs will rap you w/o max block)
    bowa (good ones will multi/run/ga even with your minion stack you will be in trouble)
    charge.smiters ( they can do sick dmg with their grief sticks, the way the smiter gets to you is thru charge but smite is of course unblockable by shields)

    ww sins, you lose regardless unless u are bming or he is stupid


    so decide: is that much life worth doing better vs those 3 classes?

    your setup is then weapon+ss block dex, instead of dual spirit/coa all vit build.
