    block reduction

    So the patch notes said that block reduction was gonna be a flat value of 30% regardless of block rating. In any spec I was running the mouse over for block showed 70% reduction, not sure if it is a display bug or if the patch notes were poorly worded or what. Additionally the reduction value didn't change when spec'd into the pally talent to increase block reduction.

    Good to know, 30% does seem kind of low though, espically given that block chance has gone down a good bit due to decreases in talent availability and mob damage has most likely stayed the same on all current mobs, would expect it to play havoc with raids/groups come 1.11

    Remember, there are several talents in the trees that increase block reduction, as well as new raid buff abilities (like purifier's new gifts) that add to reduction.

    The talents only amount to an extra 7-8% reduction on top of the 30%

    As well as %block per point being drastically reduced as you level, it's going to be a great time.
