This is kinda a rehash of what I posted in a guard thread this morning that was referencing wardens. Some things were changed:
If you haven't noticed I edited some of my posts that had screen shots. I did this after there was some notes about the NDA in the beta forums regarding what was ok to post. I'm trying to get clarification on whether or not screen shots are OK. Considering what I've seen from that awesome guard post with all the screens and the amazing mini update guide I'm not sure. I edited out most of my posts that quoted any thing I thought was may be crossing a line. I like playing around in beta Reading back on it, they might have just been referring to any quotes from beta forum or patch notes. Once I get an OK to post screens I'll do my best to get you guys any info I can. Thank you 3 day weekend.
So last night I got the full 75 moors armor set on my warden, also got two 75 rings that looked decent and a new moors cloak. I was sitting at 39.3 mitigation, which 15.7 from medium armor cap. I was using all of the physical mitigation virtues at 12.
I also built a level 75 third age Javelin and Sword. Leveled them all the way up and maxed all of a wardens avoidance buffs and used all the tier 7 tanking relics. The remarkable ones with b/p/e, partials - they are buffed copies of the 65 extraordinary ones. I went out and took on screen shot and the client crashed...that was the end of my evening. So unfortunately I don't have exact figures for you but somewhere in the 40%-50% range is probably where I was sitting for avoidance without any buffs. That was also traiting 7 deep into the shield line (probably over kill with the new LIs).
I know for sure that I can cap block with a little work and self buffs. I was able to hit 12,300 block last night, which was well over the cap. I've capped block around 10,900, I think in a previous beta build. Let me reiterate, that was only block --- parry and evade are a long long long ways from that. Please don't read this as wardens can cap b/p/e easily. All I'm saying is that when I'm building for avoidances I can cap BLOCK with significant attention being paid to self buffs. Which means 4 gambits (15 keystrokes 20 or so seconds to build), of which only one has a threat component besides some minor dps and only lasts momentarily without refreshing. Well that is for building all of the b/p/e buffs, but I hope you get what I'm trying to say.
I am hoping that I can get you guys some screenshots this weekend. Some areas I want hit testing are:
b/p/e (for science)
stat affects for wardens
I'm also going to actually do some tanking...woot. If there is anything else major you'd like tested let me know. I'll try my best. Also, if screenshots are OK - please don't expect or anticipate anything as thorough as the mini thread. You'll only be disappointed, it is pretty awesome.
