Hi DDO community,
I'm new to this game, but I'm getting the hang of my playing my wizard, I think. One thing I've heard a lot of people say confuses me though. That is, that AC is useless / doesn't matter anymore.
How do I not get killed then? Right now, my AC is 26 at level 7, which translates to a 47% "defense chance." There's really no way for me to replicate that kind of defense any other way. Sure, I can cast displacement for a few seconds for 50% enemy miss chance, but I can't do that all the time. Blur, which I do have on all the time, only gives me 20% enemy miss chance. I see there's a dodge stat (I have 0 of it right now), but that can't even exceed 25%. And I'm pretty sure all the crowd control spells in the world can't guarantee that the enemy never gets a chance to attack me.
Is the AC doesn't matter thing only for higher level players to worry about? And if so, what do high level wizards use instead of AC?
Thanks in advance
