DPS Melee Yellow Hit Cap: 5%. The min needed for special moves (shown in yellow combat text) to not miss.
DPS Melee 2-H or 1-H Hit Cap at level 85: 8% requires 961 Hit rating / 841 for Draenei,
DPS Melee 2-Weapon Hit Cap: Each Spec that can DW has a talent that alters the amount needed.
DPS Melee Expertise Cap: 5% preventing dodges when behind the target.
Tank Expertise Cap: at level 85 is 26 Expertise – requires 781 Expertise rating. That would push dodge/parry completely off the table.
Spell Hit Cap: 17% will make you able to hit a level 88 boss with 0% misses.
Ranged Hit (Hunters): 961 hit rating (or 841 if you are Draenei)
Tanks: Your goal is to reach 102.4% avoidance (from dodge, block, parry) to push normal hits entirely off the roll when you are hit. This is not possible with current gear.
|Sometimes gear is about looking good and sometimes its about thumping things.|
Ive kept them very general. I prefer to know that spirit is better than crit rather than that spirit is 1.5 better so 30 spirit is 45 crit when comparing. That gets a bit much even for me.
