    Valid question, but once again, please don't use real world physics to determine whether something is working as intended or not in a video game. Thanks.

    Didn't read the whole thread...

    But +hit and +focus do help alot in PvP. Someone did say they had really high +hit (300?) but still missed. But I bet that was when some rogue used their dodge ability which greatly increases their dodge (or a para using +parry ability). With +300 hit you will miss but still hit them. Most will just get miss after miss.

    THE PROBLEM:

    +hit and +focus matter too much. With modest +hit and +focus you render base defense of most players to 0 or <5% chance. Abilities will be effective but the situation makes going defensive a tough choice to make work.


    SOLUTIONS?

    As healing is now, TRION can't make any big changes to this. Or if they do, slow changes and then tweaking healing classes. I honestly don't think they have the skill to do it right.

    As is, if you don't put points into abilities that up parry/dodge/block they will be low enough that +50-100 hit will make em useless (depending on gear). Focus is laughably easy since around +30 is enough and +50 is overkill on 90% of the player base (very hard to up resists to 50+ across the board, or 100+ in some specific type). Sure sometimes I'll find someone with really high death resists but they are 1 in 200, so nothing to worry about at all. If many raised death resists to 100+ I'd just switch my damage type on my mage. But that will not happen since gear has no resists and if gear ever does I'd just up my focus.

    Its just a design for PvE that doesn't work AT ALL in PvP. Not thought out at all but I find most MMOs fail at defense in PvP.
