k still seems to be the cataclysm value. Cp is not that far off but Cd seems to be pretty different. I think I need more data. Is there more warrior data available somewhere?
Just took some of my own data on beta with a L85 premade warrior:
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc ... vSlE#gid=4
Confirmed that your dodge formula is different, and still using the cataclysm k coefficient:
 Code: Select all
General model:
f(x) = 1/(1/C+0.956/x)
Coefficients (with 95% confidence bounds):
C = 91.57 (91.06, 92.07)
Goodness of fit:
SSE: 0.0001821
Rsquare: 1
Adjusted Rsquare: 1
RMSE: 0.003606
Parry data shows the same k discrepancy, given the known value of str>parry conversion factor. It's not clear if the parry cap is subtly different than the paladin one, or if we're just limited by noise and a small data set.
 Code: Select all
General model:
f(x,y) = 1/(1/C+k/(x/243.9+y))
Coefficients (with 95% confidence bounds):
C = 238.4 (236.8, 239.9)
k = 0.9556 (0.9551, 0.9562)
Goodness of fit:
SSE: 0.0001639

That doesn't really narrow down C much better than our earlier data sets though. If we knew a exactly that would help  didn't GC give us that number?
Not sure when they'll be shutting down the beta (assuming tuesday), but I can try to get some more data, if you think it'll help. Not sure what kind of spread I can get, or if you have a particular area that's poorly fit I can try to construct sets with numbers in that range.

That is indeed the date they've announced as their expected shutdown (subject to change)

The more data at the extremes, the better. Here's the surface fit plot I have right now:
The places for improvement would be:
1) high parry rating, low str (i.e. 9%+ parry from rating, <2k str, maybe holy gear reforged/gemmed for parry)  basically to fill out the predrparry axis
2) high parry rating, increasing STR (i.e. take the above gear set and start swapping in prot/ret pieces)  fills out the last side of the square
3) push for maximum parry  get as much highparry, highstr gear as possible to try and push your overall parry% as high as possible. This could include using the Deathwing stacking STR trinket and parry onuse trinkets. I may try and do a little of this today, if I can find a parry onuse trinket.
4) fill in more data points in the center  not as useful, but every little bit helps

Re: A Call to Arms  MoP Mechanics Testing
My googlefu is failing me this morning... Can anyone find the blue post that gave us the exact STR>Parry conversion at L85? Or am I misremembering, and there was never such a post?

I'm only finding the 4.2 change to 27% (up from 25) of strength to parry rating.

<edit> I was going to copy my Pally over again so I could have it at level 85 with all the DS hm gear but the character copy looks to be broken atm.
Want we to use the level 86 copy I have already for the high strength gear sets or will doing it with a Level 86 just make it over complicated?

Can't use 86 data  the STR>Parry conversion will be different, and I don't know the ratio.
Could you give me the naked info for that Dranei paladin though?

Re: A Call to Arms  MoP Mechanics Testing
While you're at it with that Holy set (which I assume has a lot of haste), could you spec EF and take a quick log of a couple EF casts with high haste? I don't think the tick interval is affected by spell haste, but I don't know that I've seen a confirmation of that either way.

Re: A Call to Arms  MoP Mechanics Testing
With the new data points, along with the exact str>parry conversion ratio at L85 (243.6), this is what the fit looks like:
So our best estimate of the parry cap Cp is 236.1 +/ 0.7
 Code: Select all
General model:
f(x,y) = 1/(1/C+0.885/(x/243.6+y))
Coefficients (with 95% confidence bounds):
C = 236.1 (235.4, 236.8)
Goodness of fit:
SSE: 0.07522
Rsquare: 1
Adjusted Rsquare: 1
RMSE: 0.03483
