490 defense makes you UNCRITTABLE by bosses.
To be UNCRUSHABLE you need an effective block/parry/dodge/miss percentage of 102.4% (pretty much impossible to get passively).
After 490 defense, defense still provides benefits. You gain .04% block/parry/dodge/miss for every point of defense. It also reduces the chance of you being critically hit by 0.04%. However, at 490 defense you cannot be critically hit, so that no longer provides any benefits.
Once you have 490 defense, it is equally important to focus on Armor, Dodge, Block, Expertise (up to 236 rating) and Stamina (not in that order). I personally consider Stamina to be the next most important stat, but any avoidance is also quite important when you're tanking very hard hitting mobs.
Note: This all assumes mobs that are 3 levels higher than you. You can get away with a bit less when fighting equal + 0-2 level mobs.

If you've got .25% parry/dodge reduction from one expertise, and you need 3.9 expertise rating to get one expertise, that would mean you are assuming bosses have about 15% dodge or parry, which seems a bit high. Most of the estimates I've looked at have about 9.4% parry for bosses (6.5% dodge)... Just curious as to the source because I would like to know
One other addition to becoming uncrittable: resilience can also make up for some of this, so it is possible to have less than the defense cap for crit and still be uncrittable. Typically you only see druids doing this, because since they don't get any parry/block from defense (obviously) they are often better off just stacking dodge for avoidance.
you got to watch those fel reavers they like to sneak up on you like those FING DEVILSAURS. >_<Suztang wrote:well its my first day in outland with a warrior and it feels like i just started playin all over again! everythings new....im lost....and fel reavers scare me hopefully my brother will get home soon and help me!
