Seal of Truth: All single target attacks (including Judgement, Hammer of Wrath, Exorcism, and Templar's Verdict) can now trigger this seal.


I don't really understand this patch note. According to your work on matlab this is already the case for single target attacks (I checked the ability_model.m updated in 7th December). The only thing missing in code now is to add HoW to proc seals as the latest revision doesn't have that but that doesn't really make too much difference in talent comparison, I guess. Is this patch note meaning that single target attacks also stacks the censure dot (maybe to help for target switching to fix ret on that area?)

Let's see some numbers for Mending. For that, we'll use the default raid set (average ilvl ~359), and two common frameworks, CS/SotR and CS/WoG :
Code: Select all
ph=physical hit (%)
exp=expertise (skill)

               Mend.hps@SCSC   Mend.hps@WCWC
ph=0,exp=0          216             206
ph=8,exp=0          236             223
ph=8,exp=26         263             247

Note that :
  • the default talent build doesn't have EG; in order to assess the WoG framework, I've switched from 2/2 SotP to 2/2 EG
  • the default talent set has 3/3 Divinity, increasing Mending's output
  • although these represent the average output, they should be taken as theoretical maxima; in real world scenarios, the overhealing cannot simply be ignored

Judgement, Exorcism, and Hammer of Wrath don't poc seals on live. And nothing but auto-attacks stack Censure on live.

Testing on the PTR so far indicates that both of these will change - Censure will get stacked by all of our single-target attacks, and all three of those abilities should proc seals. This is all subject to change, of course; I'm not sure that getting doubleprocs and double stacks on Judgement (one from Judgement, one from JotJ) will last once Blizz notices it.

Theck,
I've got a question about the interplay of tps talents from your models on the Talent Comparison.


I'd like to pick up Rule of Law, not for the threat value, but for the 15% crit chance on WoG. I'm trying to get a handle on the threat implications, though.

What I'm finding is that to pick up RoL, I will be dropping both points from Seals of the Pure, and 1 point from Reckoning. You've got values nicely listed for the impact of SotP and Reck per talent point.

But here's my uncertainty: aren't these two actually interrelated? Because my Reckoning swings proc my Seals, doesn't that actually mean that Reckoning is somewhat less valuable without SotP, or conversely that SotP is somewhat less valuable due to fewer Seal procs if I don't have 2/2 Reckoning?

I suppose it's not a big deal either way, but it just struck me that because of the overlapping value of these, removing both points from SotP and 1 point from Reckoning will reduce my tps by somewhat less than would be implied by the tps-per-talent-point calculations shown in the Talent Comparison.

Your intuition is correct. The talent comparison is designed to give "best-case" values for each talent. In some cases that means that a talent is slightly less effective than its maximum value.

For example, in the absence of Reckoning, each point in SotP is worth somewhat less. So if you're comparing a build with 2/2 SotP, 0/2 Reck, and 0/3 Rule of Law to a build with 0/2 SotP, 0/2 Reck, and 2/3 RoL, each point in SotP is actually a smaller loss than the value in the comparison.

Note though that it goes both ways. If you start with a build that has 2/2 SotP and 2/2 Reckoning, which produces X DPS, and you compare to a build with 0/2 SotP and 1/2 Reckoning, you won't get X-2*S-1*R. It will actually be slightly higher than that, because S and R both include a little bit of that interaction.

You are indeed right as usual as I forget to count the judgement procs. The stacking censure part is good news especially for ret and to us from a point. Thanks for your clarification.

Let's discuss environmental modifiers (check the supported buff classes in [BM]). Because of synergies, one must consider two approaches : a. no buffs, then adding one buff class at a time; b. full buffs, then subtracting one buff class at a time. They're sorted out, from highest to lowest, based on the average value.

Setup : SoT, regular CS/SotR, default gear set (~359), default talent/glyph configuration.
Code: Select all

low Vengeance : veng=0.3

A probably redundant clarification : for 5-man dungeons, check the @buffs.off columns; for unoptimized raids, the @avg columns; for optimized raids, the @buffs.on columns.

This seems like a simple and useful enough comparison that we should put it in a calc_ file and include it somewhere on the front page. Would you mind taking your code and uploading a skeleton calc_buffs file? I can take care of graphs and such for the 4.0.6 release.

from PTR 4.0.6 Build 13529:
Enchanting: Enchant Weapon - Avalanche now also procs from spell damage.


this is pretty nice. tested it on the ptr today and it seems to proc from almost anything now (including censure/consecration ticks).

It already does on live. That's just a tooltip update.

Avalanche isn't triggered by Consecration on the live realms. It raises an interesting question : is it being triggered by the cast itself, or by the DoT effect ? Testing this should be fairly straightforward :
  • grab a build with 2/2 HG (the corresponding glyph isn't terribly relevant, you may as well skip it)
  • be sure to avoid using SoT, thus eliminating the nuisance of Censure
  • attack a low-lvl dummy (only) with Cons and J, outside of melee range
  • check any Avalanche procs that are not synchronized (within <1 second) to Cons casts or J
  • stop when encountering the first match, or after five Cons casts

Any chance of a 1 statpoint graph anytime soon? Would be nice for ppl to compare pieces of threat gear.

If you're not busy ofc, otherwise just delay it.

I'll run the same test again with WoL (as soon as I learn to use it) and move the post as soon as I can.
Sorry for that.

Dwarfadin wrote:This is what I actually found out:

- Hammer of the Righteous can miss, dodge, parry
- If the physical portion misses, is dodged or parried, no holy nova damage is applied.
- Holy nova damage can separately miss (spell hit) upon a physical hit.

The odd is, if the physical part doesn't hit, there's no report at all on logs, no message at all. The only trace left is that the Holy Power charge is gained nevertheless.

Thanks for bringing this to our attention. We were already aware of the behavior of the nova component, but the lack of combat log entry led us astray on the physical component. If you're interested in helping more with the mechanics testing, I'll echo tlitp's suggestion that you check out the Call to Arms thread. We can always use more smart testers.

To address some of your other concerns:
Dwarfadin wrote:During the test i've noticed an oddity about the Vindication behaviour.

- Both phys. and Holy components proc Vindication. They separately miss.
- Holy nova applies Vindications on every target: the tooltip says only primary targets.

Yup, this is the known behavior. It was changed in beta, but the tooltip was never updated to match the new behavior.

Dwarfadin wrote:- The double roll for the debuff application on your primary target can result:

Refreshed, Refreshed
Miss, Refreshed
Miss, Miss
Refreshed {only one line}
http://img838.imageshack.us/i/log1g.png/

There exists no "Refreshed, Miss" neither stand-alone "Miss".
Not really sure what the meaning is. They are not connected to Holy nova misses. I don't even think we should care about it.

No idea, but I agree with your conclusion.

Dwarfadin wrote:Other notices:

Recount reports that Censure DoT can be parried and dodged. This might refer to the application though. It needs further investigation.

The behavior of Censure has already been investigated, though for the life of me I can't find the post where we tested it. This is the application being parried or dodged; the DoT itself cannot miss.


Dwarfadin wrote:
Theckhd wrote:Judgement, Exorcism, and Hammer of Wrath don't poc seals on live. And nothing but auto-attacks stack Censure on live.

Judgement DOES proc the seal on live (like CS, doesn't refresh the DoT), it can be easily observed.

Judgement doesn't proc seals at all, in fact. The application of the Judgements of the Just debuff is what triggers SoT/SoR. This has already been tested carefully in the Call to Arms thread. If tested with 0/2 in JotJ, Judgement doesn't proc any seals.

It's noteworthy that in the build on the PTR, both Judgement and JotJ applications proc seals as of the latest testing due to the Retribution changes (all single-target attacks now stack Censure and proc seals). It's not clear if these seal double-procs will make it through to live, or whether they'll finally catch on and remove the seal proc from JotJ to compensate.

Thank you Theck for your attention.
Sorry if I brought on topics already discussed. I was unaware of the JotJ proc'ing Seal of Truth, that's a nice discovery for me.

I've already applied maintankadin guild on Word of Logs, i'm waiting for your confirmation for uploading.
Tonight I'll run an extended test (6+ hours) to get better numbers about HotR.

It shouldn't take anywhere near 6 hours; check the Call to Arms thread, tlitp has requested a parse of 30 HotRs.

I'm working on the 4.0.6 code, and I noticed that there's a slight discrepancy between the mmo-champion database, the wowhead database, and the armory for spellpower weapons.

Example:
MMO: Twilight's Hammer
Speed 1.70
550 - 1022 Damage
(462.4 damage per second)
+219 Stamina
+146 Intellect
Equip: Improves critical strike rating by 97.
Equip: Improves haste rating by 97.
Equip: Increases spell power by 1954.

WH: Twilight's Hammer
Speed 1.70
42 - 80 Damage
(35.9 damage per second)
+219 Stamina
+146 Intellect
Equip: Increases your critical strike rating by 97.
Equip: Increases your haste rating by 97.
Equip: Increases spell power by 1954.

WA: Twilight's Hammer
Speed 2.30
550 - 1022 Damage
(341.7 damage per second)
+219 Stamina
+146 Intellect
Equip: Increases your critical strike rating by 97.
Equip: Increases spell power by 1954.
Equip: Increases your haste rating by 97.

This discrepancy appears for quite a few other spellpower weapons as well. If someone could do a quick in-game check to see which one of the three is accurate, I'd appreciate it.

Hi theck,

On live (4.0.3), in game tooltip shows that the weapon dmg is 1-179 and dps is 53.1 and the weapon speed is 1.70. I don't have PTR client so I can't tell that one sadly. Hope this helps.

They've eliminated the weapon damage penalty of SP-based weapons during the 4.0.6 PTR dev builds. Most of MMOC's entries should be already updated.
