quick check of build 15752 (current) shows that holy wrath still appears to reset the swing timer.

Not a test, per se, but a quote that will save us from doing a lot of annoying testing:

Re: A Call to Arms  MoP Mechanics Testing
Armor and physical damage reduction :
Base stats/attributes : level 90, different races. Being fully naked, report primary stats (Str/Agi/Int/Stam), total AP and physical/spell crit chance (character sheet), total HP and MP.
 Player level  90
 Talents/Glyphs  irrelevant
 Gear  Prot/Ret, with high Str/AP; you should have a few spare parts available, as you'll need to shift the total AP (e.g. base total : 10k, and then {10.5k 11k 11.5k 12k})
 Weapon  Club (must be exactly this one), purchasable from vendors
 Buffs/Debuffs  ideally none
 Target  level 93 dummy (ideally less crowded)
 Attack sequence  only autoattacks, from the back
 Goal  equip the base AP gear (note the value somewhere), attack the dummy for 1 min; add/replace one piece (changing the AP, noting the new value), attack for another 1 min; then repeat the last step three more times, to have five data sets

Re: A Call to Arms  MoP Mechanics Testing
Another potentially useful quote:
The two links you mention are old, but the ideas are accurate. White attacks are still ‘one roll’ (Miss Dodge Parry Block Glance Crit Hit), and yellow attacks are still ‘two roll’ (Miss Dodge Parry Block, Crit). The only change to that is that Block against players is an additional separate roll now. Glances can still only occur on white attacks. I believe our recent blog post about this stuff included all off the relevant chances for these, but if you have more specific questions, feel free to ask.

Re: A Call to Arms  MoP Mechanics Testing
I need data regarding Str>Parry conversions and dodge/parry DR equations. All of that can be had by equipping different amounts of gear and reporting the dodge and parry tooltips (i.e. "X rating gives Y% dodge (before DR)" as well as reporting your overall dodge chance and Strength value).

Re: A Call to Arms  MoP Mechanics Testing
<edit> I should note that I believe there's a typo in your data. The dodge from data set #6 should be 2.58%, not 2.85%. It's the only outlier, and it can't be reconciled with the rest in any way. If I calculate the results without that data point, I get a result that's consistent with 2668 dodge rating giving 2.58% dodge preDR.
Based on the rating to percentage conversions, the coefficient for both dodge and parry seems to be the same. The dodge data puts the range between 1034.7 and 1036.0, the parry data puts it between 103.8 and 105.2. Together, we can narrow this range to 1034.7105.2, making 1035.0 a pretty reasonable estimate (given the accuracy limitations inherent in rounded data). I came about this through simple unit testing, but curve fitting gives a similar result:
The rounding is really the limitation on the accuracy, I think. So we'll need more data to be able to pin it down to better than +/ 0.5.

Re: A Call to Arms  MoP Mechanics Testing
I'm having trouble curvefitting the dodge data. There are a few peculiarities. For example, with 2.8% preDR dodge and 3% base dodge, you'd expect less than 5.8% total dodge after DR. Yet we have 6.03%.
It's almost as if they removed diminishing returns completely. I can fit the data pretty well with
I can also fit it with
which is the old formula. k comes out to 0.9517+/0.01, which is reasonable, but C is 562.1+/517, which I don't trust (for obvious reasons). C is the cap on avoidance, and is currently around 65ish. That falls within the confidence bounds, but it's not at all confidenceinspiring to have such a large range.
I was hoping to isolate dodge individually to figure out the DR equation, and then use those results to figure out the STR>Parry ratio, but if I'm going to do that I'll need more data at much smaller dodge rating values (i.e. several data points between 1002000 rating). Or much larger values, for that matter, but that may be harder to do.

Re: A Call to Arms  MoP Mechanics Testing
Realized I was making a dumb mistake  I was putting base dodge into the DR formula, when traditionally base dodge isn't affected by DR. That makes a world of difference in the results. Combining the earlier data set with the one that Klaud just provided, here's what I get:
If I fix C at it's cataclysm value (near the upper end of the confidence bound on C), I get:
At this point, it's not completely conclusive  we have two free parameters, and the data doesn't deviate enough from linearity over this range to feel too confident about either, but if I had to guess I'd say they kept the old caps and simply changed the constant k. Note that since k<1, this means that you actually gain avoidance from the DR equation at low levels (like we are here). It isn't until you stack an appreciable amount (probably 1015%) that it starts to fall behind the preDR values. In Cataclysm, k was about 0.965, so this effect was still present at very low dodge/parry (<2%), but decreasing k will make it extend up to higher values.
Working on the strength/parry data now. I was fooling around with a surface fit of the earlier parry data, and the indication is that the parry gained from STR isn't affected by DR. But now that I have some new data to play with, I should be able to tell for sure.
 Code: Select all
General model:
f(x) = 3+1/(1/C+k/(x))

C = 61.84 (57.08, 66.59)

Re: A Call to Arms  MoP Mechanics Testing
Parry/Str data is being... confusing. With a curve fit to just the most recent data set (fixed STR), I can get a very good fit from either model:
However, the extreme difference in s suggests that we should be able to tell the difference between these by simply varying strength. So I took the entire data set and used the surface fit tool. That gives me these situations:
If I fix C in the last two versions, I get:
Neither of the versions with strengthbased parry affected by DR fit very well. One easy way to check would be to have a few data points at exactly the same parry rating but different Strength values (i.e., full gear, then take off pieces of gear that don't have parry rating on them one by one). That would probably give me a clear strength scaling to work off of. This could be done in ret gear, even, to give the largest STR range possible.

Re: A Call to Arms  MoP Mechanics Testing
I'll see what I can do about that  another alternative is to get some pieces of spirit plate gear and reforge into parry.
Gimme a few and I'll do just that, need to find a fricking vendor first AND get more bagspace >=/
Edit: Actually, give me a while  getting a really bad migraine...

Updating the code with these now, but I don't understand the block entry. It looks like mastery rating to mastery is 700, but we get 1% block per mastery unless something's changed. Is the "block" entry for block rating, in case it's still floating around on lowlevel gear?
Also, if anyone's level 90 on beta and can get the armor data set that tlitp wants, please do so. You wouldn't like him when he's angry.

Re: A Call to Arms  MoP Mechanics Testing
I'll incorporate that data tomorrow, but what I asked for was the opposite  vary strength while keeping parry rating constant.

Blah, I'll think of something then.
does the amount of parry rating mater? or as long as its the same its ok?
Like... having 700 parry rating but varying the amount of str as much as I can...

Had to sell a bunch of my gear, I had no more bagspace... So my sets will be limited from now on.

Re: A Call to Arms  MoP Mechanics Testing
Thanks Klaud, I'll take a look at the whole data set later today, hopefully that's enough spread of data points to nail down the parry details.

Coming out of the blue: my beta's running again, so I'll be able to log some time.

#28 and #29. As far as I can tell, spell coefficients are static, so any level character can do #28. Just be sure to report your level and the dummy level, along with all of the other info I requested.

Re: A Call to Arms  MoP Mechanics Testing
From Klaud's data sets, the armor coefficient @93 seems to be roughly 25050. That's good enough for now, we'll check the exact formula and the level scaling later on.
If the level 90 dummies have finally been implemented, we'll definitely need a level 88 anything (i.e. a Paladin is mighty fine) to check the scaling of glancing blows. For now, lowerlevel Paladins can tackle the weapon enchants (see leading post), as those test are basically levelagnostic (tests #3, #4, #21).
@Theck : please edit test #29. We don't need the +3 scaling, but the +2 one (i.e. level 88 on level 90 dummies); also, increase the duration to 1h+ and specify that the gear must be critheavy, as I'd like to snipe data to see if block events are indeed oneroll in the case of AAs.
EDIT : Here's how it should look like.

EDIT : Here's how it should look like.
 Level : 88 (exactly 88).
 Gear: Critheavy (Retoriented).
 Target: Any level 90 dummy (exactly 90, not 93), attacking from the front.
 Attack Sequence: just Autoattacks.
 Goal: 60+ minutes worth of autoattacks.
 Report: total physical crit (character sheet), upload the combat log.
