Thread: Dodge 2x versus 3x

  1. Default Dodge 2x versus 3x

    I have started the long road to go from 2x to 3x dodge. Can anyone comment on how big of a difference having 3x dodge will be? Thanks.

    As a tower shield platemail warrior, it made a noticeable difference.
    A kobold points at you and yells, "Mine! Chasin!"

    Well I'm a tower shield chain hauberk rogue...close enough I think.

    Glad to hear this should be worth the tps.

    I went 2x to 3x in mbp and no shield and definitely saw a difference. It wasn't my first priority post cap, but it was great. I didn't feel like I had to stay in mbp after that and ended up dropping to hauberk.

    If you can afford it without handicapping yourself, go for it. If you aren't post cap you don't have to make the full jump, just go part way to balance it better.

    If I've done the math right, it's 37-38 extra DS in offensive against melee attacks (more against ranged or in lower stances):

    2x Dodging: ((202 * 0.91 * 0.54) - 10) * 0.75 = 66.9471
    3x Dodging: ((303 * 0.91 * 0.54) - 10) * 0.75 = 104.17065


    Plus there's the extra chance of dodging attacks completely. I'm going for at least 2.5x Dodging with my rogue right now, intending to eventually drop her medium shield and go TWC.
