    Dk solo 80-81 or 82

    So, as the title sais. Will dr on stats outweigh the improved gear on 81-82? Compared to lvl 80.
    There are alot of really good gear available on 81 and even 82 including panda gems/meta.

    Will I be able to get 124% avoidence on say a 82-82 char with that gear?

    The fact that going for a maxlvl of an expansion (80) to the next level into a new expansion is always a HUGE step down in stats. That together with the fact that there are ilvl 409 items, which can be worn at lvl 80 far outweighs all the items you could possibly get with 81/82 - simply by ilvl409 being better than almost everything you can get at 81/82 and you get more for the stats.
    In the end you'll be wearing the 409 ilvl items anyway...

    Do you mean 102.4% CTC?

    I'm not sure how even a level 80 can manage that, even with 409 item level gear.

    102.4% isn't even a thing anymore. 80s can manage 124% is the avoidance cap against level 88 bosses, which is what Aelobin used to kill baleroc.

    This is the first I've heard of this. So with 124% avoidance, you can't ever be hit?

    The 102.4% chance changed when boss hit mechanics changed. a boss 3 levels above you (or more in the case of 80s vs cata bosses) cannot miss, as the miss chance reduces by 1.5% per level, and you have 3% to start with vs an equal level mob. As for avoidance, that turned into 1.5% per avoidance per level, and considering there's only two avoidances (block is rolled separately, so you either need 100% dodge + parry, or 100% block), the formula is 9% for +3 levels, and 24% for +8, resulting in 124%.

    Yup, paladins have a rather easy job of it, I was surprised just how easy when I made that video. A dk has around 90k hp buffed in pure avoidance gear (BiS avoidance for level 80)
