102.4% in optimizer?

I'm using the ProtPally module and attempting to have the tool optimize my gear based on 102.4%.  Is there some way to do this?  I tried using %Avoidance + Block and % Total Mitigation, but it appears to be capping it at 100%.

I suspect I'm missing something obvious.  Can someone enlighten me?

Thanks and great work on the tool btw:)

100% is what you want.

"102.4%" typically refers to enough avoidance+block to at least block every hit of a boss, since bosses bypass 0.6% of dodge, miss, parry, and block. Rawr already takes target level difference into account, and correctly adjusts your stats appropriately.

So, the percentages for dodge, block, parry and miss are adjusted for the boss level, since when optimized at 100%, they total 100% (not 102.4)?  I'm at work so I can't login to wow to see if these numbers match.

Yes, assuming you set your target level at 83, what Rawr shows as 100% will show up as 102.4% in game.  If you set your target level at 80, then that same gear will show 102.4%.  In-game shows your stats against level 80.

Thank you for the clarification.

So, I took my character from the armory, optimized and regemmed based on 540 defense and 100% avoidance + block (setting boss level at 83).  After hitting Holy Shield, in game, I'm only at 100%..... is there a known issue?  Or could I be missing something else?

Only buffs I have selected is Sanctuary, devo aura and toughness.  I adjusted the boss level to 80 and the percentages do not match my in game results.

This is the sort of thing where we can't help you without your character file. Post it in a new issue, with a description of your issue.
