Any word on where mastery starts hitting the diminishing returns barrier? I doubt we'll ever get blocks up to 100% mitigation (paladins) or . . . well, whatever it is for warriors. It would just be a shame for mastery to go from very, very good to almost insignificant if it will cap out at, say, 50% (since I don't think the difference between 40% blocks and 50% blocks would be very noticeable). Oh, and Block Value isn't completely gone; Lavanthor's Talisman still grants 440 BV on use! Bwa ha ha!

Paladins will block cap at the end of tier 11 with the right gear, warriors will be a few percent behind.Both paladins and warriors will end up block capped in tier 12, unless they make boss expertise affect more then just dodge in some way that doesn't make it only really hurt the block classes.

Not with the Mastery changes, they won't.

Mastery, just like the Block Rating it replaced, isn't subject to diminishing returns; there's just the cap where every attack is missed, parried, dodged, or blocked. Diminishing returns are specific to parry and dodge (technically, miss, too, but with Defense skill gone there's no way to influence it).Incidentally, I can't help noticing that with the talk of caps, there was no mention of any practical cap to parry or dodge; at some point thanks to diminishing returns mastery will grossly out-perform these two.
