Hold on a minute. If I recall correctly, you neede to have a certain amount of a now extinct stat called defense to be uncrushable. Many bear tanks were using pvp gear because resilience worked in the same way to reduce critical hits, which is what crushing blows were. Avoidance stats and crushable blows weren't related. Although you could still push regular attacks of the hit table so that all incoming hits would be blocked dodged or parried. I could be making this all up in my own head though.

You're not remembering correctly. In order to be uncrushable, you needed to push all crushing blows off the attack table, which was achieved by reaching a magic avoidance number (107.4% I believe?) That number came from dodge, parry and block. Since defense helped all those, it also helped warriors and pallies become uncrushable. Since bears cannot block or parry, a bear simply could not become uncrushable... bears were instead given huge armor and HP to help soften the fact that they were crushable. But nobody took a bear to tank a fight where a boss could crush, unless they already overgeared it anyway.End derail.
