My husband and I are strolling through Moria on my guard and his RK. I've been traiting blues and yellows rather than OP because my level capped toons are all dps or support and tanking is new and fun for me. My question to the guards out there is how does evade help me? (I'm thinking about Guardian's pledge specifically.) If it takes a block or a parry to open my shield or sword chains, doesn't an evasion just decrease my chances of triggering my shield chain? I'd rather have the chain open than evade a hit since guards are so sturdy.... even when I do pull a whole room ..and with a pocket healer. Does it become important later on in raids? Along the same lines, I didn't think tactical hits could be evaded, only mitigated or resisted.
Thanks in advance for advice.
