    Was not aware Evade only worked from front. Had heard the opposite until now. Thanks.

    When you say Parry gems are better.... do you mean they have higher amounts of parry?
    Because:

    Evade is 100% dmg mitigation, while parry is only 40% if you parry.
    So it would follow the evade gems would offer less points. Not because they are worse gems, but because evasion is 'worth more mitigation' in smaller amounts.

    Thanks

    To answer the questions.

    1. How much focus is needed?
    A: As much focus gems as you want to put on your gloves. Every 400 focus (T3 gem) is -1% from each of the 3 mitigation stats so really after about 5-6 gems (2-2.4k focus) you start to see some diminishing returns against a lot of stat setups. It's not that focus is bad anywhere else, but you can probably roll something better.

    2. How much "Evade" is enough?
    A: If you already have a base of 5-6%, it's not bad to add more. But in general for melee don't bother with evasion unless you can mix in some old 3% RNG evasion gems on gloves in the first 2-3 slots. The new nerfed evasion gems are more balanced, considering the powerful effect of evasion (still evades phys CCs), but that means they probably aren't worth it for melee which specs out of agility and usually intelligence too.

    Since the viable added sources of focus, evasion, and parry rate are all or almost from gloves, that makes the question pretty simple. For glove gem priority, I'd say: 2-3 old T3 evasion gems > focus gems > parry gems. Most melee just slot all T3 parry gems, probably because they're cheapest and still decent.

    You should hit somewhere around 1200+ focus from titles and stats put into your character over time, from BiS items (for most) like Halcy neck and Gladiator titles. You should, by no means, inves tin focus in your gems. You are burning tons of gold for a minimal boost in dps, when you could instead blow your load on cit dmg (rate/toughness in hat) instead.
