Parry haste on old Bosses with the new MoP hit/exp system

Postby Schroom » Mon Jan 28, 2013 8:25 am

Yes I know parry haste hasn't been enabled on Raidbosses since Cataclysm.

but, as far as I know it was still active on the old Bosses that had parry haste enabled in older expansions.

my question is now, with the new implemented hit/exp system, did Blizzard take out parry haste completely for mobs, and we can now bury it for good? Or does it (even tho it doesn't scare anyone anymore), as a mechanic at least still exist on those old Bosses?

Fixed that for you. Players still get the benefit of parry-haste.

ok thanks, and the DPS benefit players (mostly tanks) get is close to negligent I guess :)

Given that it only affects melee swings (white damage), the damage increase for players (especially tanks) is almost non-existent.

Nowadays PH accounts for ~0.5% (0.1%-1% is the typical range, in RL scenarios rather than sims) of the Paladin's total output, when it actually matters. As in fighter-type foes and/or multi-target encounters.

PH does have its moments of glory, every once in a blue moon. On this random Mel'jarak 25H parse : the Paladin's regular swing time is in the 2.0-2.1 region, but the time-averaged value gets down to ~1.45 (including everything, from downtime to dynamic effects). That shift alone accounts for ~3% of the Paladin's total output... or ~0.5% of the total raid output. :P
