We are adjusting all the stats of the Riftstalker’s tanking vendor-bought gear for Expert Dungeon and Raids to include Deflect. They will lose mostly Parry from this adjustment.
After including changes made to Shadow Guard, Guardian Phase, 2 piece crystal and False Blade, the Riftstalker in 1.8 compared to 1.7 will have:
1) Less avoidance.
2) Higher Deflect chance.
3) Better mitigation from a successful Deflect.
4) Slightly worse mitigation from an unsuccessful Deflect.
5) Better overall damage mitigation.
6) More Health
