I was wondering if this Talent is really worth spending 5 talent points. Contrary to the person who wrote the entry (see Notes) I am not so convinced that it really makes sense for a "high end" warrior to have +10% armor.
Taken the damage reduction formula of this board:
For a mob whose level is between 59 to 73 %Reduction = (Armor / (Armor - 22167.5 + 467.5 * Enemy_Level)) * 100
and calculating the reduction (in %) m for a level 70 mob and a tank with , let's say 10.000 armor the difference would only be approx. 2%
And i think 2% additional damage reduction is not worth 5 talent points

- 10k armor is the minimum a tank would have. Typically Kara cleared tanks have ~15k armor. End game geared tanks have ~20k+ armor. i.e. this talent scales with your gear. WakemanCK 12:34, 3 May 2008 (UTC)
