damage to threat conversion question

Postby Dor » Thu Oct 09, 2008 12:26 pm

is the threat conversion in the patch the same as it is now? ie consecrate for example..

say consecrate is doing 150 damage per tic on live and 150 damage per tic on test... will that be generating the same amount of threat?

No, it will do more since the threat reduction from Salv for DDs and Healers got rolled into the "stances" (in our case only a buff) of the tanking classes.

Live: 150*1.9 = 285 threat
PTR: 150*1.43*1.9 = 407.6 threat

(I think they're multiplicative.)

Does this new cake of salv being baked into our threat "stances" show on tooltips?

It does not. I personally think it should, since a spell description saying "increases threat from Holy damage by 90%" is completely meaningless when that's not actually what it does. If it just said "increases threat you deal" with no specific numbers, that'd be fine, but since they give a false number in the tooltip...

Sort of. RF itself does exactly what it says, it just so happens that in our threat 'stance' we get the extra 1.43.

The 1.43 includes white damage, the 1.9 doesn't. It's hidden in all threat stances(bear, stance, rf, DK thingy).

I understand that. My point is, if they're going to give us abilities that state specific modifiers to our threat, then they should state the full modifier, not just one part of it. It still remains that activating RF does more than what is said on the description.
