    Reforging stat loss

    Today I picked up a few new pieces, and realized that with only minimal reforging (and some un-forging) I was able to achieve my desired stats for hit/exp as well as parry/dodge ratio. Then I realized that there's a stat loss with any reforging and if you reforge every piece of gear, the total stats is decreased.

    So in theory, if you kept reforging to a minimum and built your gear around pieces with the most desireable stats that did not need reforging, you would technically be better than someone with an identical ilvl and had every gear reforged.

    If you're someone that's going for min/maxing... it seems not using reforging would be the way to go.

    There is no stat loss when reforging.

    Yea, no. All it does is convert a percent of the original stat into a smaller amount of the newly desired stat. If you reforge out of 100 mastery into, say, dodge, you'll still have 100 combined mastery and new dodge. No loss anywhere. Newton's Law of Conservation of Armor Stats and all that.

    Wasn't sure of the exact percent, but now I looked! Using the above example, reforging a 100 mastery bonus into dodge yields 40 dodge, leaving 60 mastery behind. The total of 100 "stat" is maintained.

    Thanks for the clarification. I think originally there was stat loss but this never came up in my brain before. Appreciate the comments!
