Agreed... With us not needing +def anymore (at least with SotF and until DR kicks in at around 50% dodge?), I'd still say the name of the game is +sta/+dodge at the moment. I guess they're working on extra ways to mitigate dmg (were talking about parry-esk type abilities), but all that junk is up in the air still...

Can you provide a source your comment on DR not being applied until 50% dodge? I thought I read somewhere (possibly Big Bear Blogger) that DR is calculated immediately after base dodge (~14% with talents) was applied. If DR is not applied until about 50% dodge then this is a huge bonus for tanking druids as you can very easily reach 50% with the new gear.

Hmm... I'll have to dive into the stuff I read a while back and in beta. I think it was after the last SotF change, where they were talking about how +def turned into point for point better for us after the DR kick in... Wish I had specifics for you now, but I don't. I fear all this stuff is going to change when they work out how to fix us.

Diminishing Returns applies at ALL levels of dodge.However, it only affects dodge% gained by agility/dodge rating. This means that dodge% from talents (ala Feral Swiftness/Natural Reactions) are unaffected by DR.http://elitistjerks.com/f31/t29453-combat_ratings_level_80_a/
