Shouldnt it be 'unavoided' damage, since armor is a form of mitigation and is calculated into EH?

Maybe I'm just being nit-picky but it made me go look up how to calculate EH again, lol.
Nope. Say you had a warrior with 10k HP the 10% damage reduction and a 50% armor reduction. His effective health is how much damage that is leathal to him (10K) is when it is applied to a target with no armor or damage reduction (unmitigated target).

Code: Select all
10,000 * 1/(1 - .9) * 1/(1 -.5) = 22, 222


the 22,222k is the warrior's EH.


Shouldn't it be this?

Code: Select all
10,000 * 1/(1 - .1) * 1/(1 -.5) = 22, 222



If its the other way around on that, a person with lower damage reduction would have a higher EH o.o

Can't go confusing people ya know :P

Should Divine Intervention (DI) be added to the list?

can we just use SoV to refer to Seal of Corruption instead of the horrific SoCorr? and also use SoB to refer to SoM since we all referred to it that way anyway?

Tank Burnout.

Parry Hasted Attack (some people think when you parry it increases boss's swing time).

Parry Gib.

Deflect (as in SHoR not landing).

Edit :

Is it possible to have "fall/pushed".

Lynthac will add those.

@Sab, I feel forced to include those terms because some people use them and people may want to know what they are talking about. For Instance I included SotR even though I hate that acronym simply because this is a term that some use. What I can do is state that SoM's and SoCorr's use are frowned upon.

Saw you saying that you ought to add Diminishing Returns - wouldn't be a bad idea to add it in.

I see people (Knaughty) using "TL;DR". What's that mean? I get the general gist of it (as generally what follows is the short-short summary), but what's the actual acronym mean? :shock:

969 - Linked to Frequently Argued Questions. AKA: Advanced tanking FAQ, second post (direct link to post)

HoR - Hand of Reckoning

PoJ - Pursuit of Justice

DTPS - Damage taken per second (WWS uses this)

HTPS - Healing taken per second (WWS uses this)

FCFS - First Come First Serve, ret dps rotation/lack of rotation. Not sure if it is worth including this.

Hey,

I'm looking at the stickies and determining what to prune for Cataclysm.

Please advise if you want to...

a) Keep this thread, and update it for Cata,

b) Dump this thread and start a fresh one for Cata, or

c) Dump this thread.

Voting A
We live in a society where people born on third base constantly try to steal second, yet we expect people born with two strikes against them to hit a homerun on the first pitch.

It doesn't look like Majiben's playing anymore so I'm guessing he won't be updating this.

I have a mild preference for starting a new thread, even if it begins as a copy of the
old OP. That way we don't lose the historical value of the references for past expansions.

No need to decide right away; this is just when I happened to start thinking about it.
