Warlords of Draenor warrior discussion

8 posts in this topic

Rules will be enforced less strictly in this thread.  Hopefully people will be mature and contribute and I won't have to moderate here at all.  Things that are specifically allowed here but not elsewhere include wishlisting, armchair design, feelings and reactions, conjecture, and opinion.  Discussion is as always open to theorycrafting and game play, but things like art that are normally off topic are also included.


Posters still need to use clear and polite language.  And while the objective quality of post content won't be enforced here, posts still do have to have content.  "Here is how I feel about this feature, and why" is a good post.  "I am happy / sad / angry about this feature and am / am not going to resub because of it" is not a good post.

One thing that I don't understand from a design philosophy, is how much stamina negatively impacts resolve percentages.


Resolve from stamina at level 100 is:

Rs = Stamina / (250 * 261)

Resolve from damage taken is:

Rd = 0.25 * 10 * (DTPS / (60 * Stamina))



The negative impact of using a Stam Flask, Stam Food, and Commanding shout are as follows:

Tanking Dungeon Target Dummy: -12% shield barrier size

Tanking Raid Target Dummy: -11% shield barrier size


This seems insane to me.


Solved for the cross over point.
At 100000 Damage Taken Per Second, I would need to be beyond 16500 stamina for stamina to provide a net-resolve increase. Before that point losing stamina increases resolve. (For those not currently on beta, I have 2916 stamina at level 100)

For those who want to muck around, below is a pretty rough spread sheet I've created. (Intended for level 100, does not support level 90 characters)


Inputs are on the stats page, results are on the results page. Everything else is either mitigation/dps/rotational calculations
Bonus armour seems to be our best stat and is also our second best dps stat.

Depending on your shield block usage/gear level (default values are ilevel 578)... stats priority is likely:

  1. Armour
  2. Strength
  3. Mastery
  4. Crit
  5. Versatility
  6. Haste
  7. Stamina

Stamina is pretty bad. It increases your expected damage taken due to its effect on resolve. Armour reduces spike size by almost the same health that the same budget of stamina would grant.

Anyone can edit the link above. If it gets butchered and you want to copy the original, use this:


Still needs:

  • non-gnome racial supports
  • avatar talent support
  • bloodbath talent support
  • figure out how to leave api data in cells when turning off api update
  • multiple mob support for dps
  • multiple mob support for tanking
  • does multistrike affect shield barrier?
  • add victory rush to damage list
  • blood craze
  • other things

If there's interest, I can keep posting updates as I make them.

I actually like the data, as a prot warrior main myself.

I knew armor was king. I'm a bit surprised by strength over mastery. Although getting strength isn't easy anyways so mastery was my goto flask and enchants in beta. It seems to scale very well compared to others.

Also of note. Crit to parry conversion only occurs on gear. Using a crit flask is particularly bad since it gives 0 mitigation right now. Procs I have not tested yet (such as weapon enchant).

Does haste affect Rend?

From my understanding Haste will reduce the Global Cool down triggered by Rend but ultimately it will not affect the speed of the DoT tick or the burst at the end of the duration.

      Fixed a bug on Xhul where it was warning to taunt swap before the boss was in phasing phase. Fixed a bug where HUD dot would still show for mark of legion even if HUD was disabled on mythic Archimonde Fixed a lua error for voice pack users on Blackhand mod. Changes
      Updated to latest LibChatAnims for Legion compatability. DBM core now lets you set warning duration for on screen warnings as low as 1 second, down from previous 3 second lowest setting. Changed default countdown audio for all countdowns to begin at 4 seconds, down from 5. (mods that already use less than 4 will continue to do so) Name labels for HUD should hopefully now show up on alert circles even for names that aren't in range. Hellfire Citadel:
      Further refined add cancel timers on mannoroth to try to be as precise as possible on whether or not the add will come or not during a transition. Reduced yell countdown for mark of Legion on Mythic Archimonde from 5 seconds to 3 to still accomplish purpose but with less spam.

    • Legion Alpha: Nythendra Kill/DBM Testing
      By MysticalOS
      In This video I'm testing a mod on a boss that has never before been pulled that I drycoded before hand using only journal and spell data from wowhead. For most part the mod worked pretty well to warn for important debuffs and already had working yell countdowns and the works. The mod of course lacked perfect timers and instead used the built in AI system to try and learn some on the fly which it did but not perfectly since it's hard for ai timers to perfectly learn how phase changes reset timers and such. You can also see the debug I run in chat and transcriptor of course running to log fight to complete mod later (and the mod is complete now).
