"Higher defense makes your harder to hit and makes monsters less likely to land a crushing blow." - Skills Frame in WoW
We all know +defense gives .04 block/parry/dodge/mobmiss/-mobcrit, does it have the same effect on crushing blows?
And has anyone done a study on crushing blow % from mobs +1/+2/+3 levels?
A crushing blow is an attack made by an NPC on a PC that is 150% of the Damage caused by a normal successful attack. A Player cannot perform a crushing blow.
When the attacker is 3 or more levels above its target, there is a 15% minimum chance of being struck by a crushing blow.
If a player's defense is lower than the maximum for that level, the crushing blow chance is increased. However, having extra defense past the cap for that level does not lower the crushing blow chance any further.
