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))

Source: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/13087818929?page=1#2

 

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.

 

EDIT:
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)
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1...sp=sharing

 

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:

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1...sp=sharing

 

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.

      Added mod for Cenarius from heroic raid testing. Some Mythic stuff drycoded Added mod for Ilgynoth from heroic raid testing. Added a mod for Dragons of Nightmare from heroic raid testing.

Mythic additions to Nythendra from mythic raid testing. Added mod for Xavius from heroic raid testing. Note: Phase 3 was bugged and he was not using most abilities during it so phase 3 timers are incomplete.

      Added mod for Tichondrius from heroic raid testing. Added mod for Aluriel from heroic raid testing. Added mod for Telarn from heroic raid testing. Added mod for Krosus from heroic raid testing.

      Fixed LUA error on Glaidalis (Darkheart Thicket) Fix some lua errors in Eye of Azshara Changes
      Core:
      Added a new auto localized special warning text for defensive abilities/CDs instead of most tank warnings just being generic spell names. Hellfire Citadel:
      Changed HUD colors for lines on players for several offensive debuffs from green to yellow to fit more in line with philosophy that red is bad stuff not on player that player should avoid, yellow is bad stuff on player that player should get out of raid and green is a "move to" line that tells player to follow line to get somewhere.

    • DBM 6.2.21 Released
      By MysticalOS
      Key: Blue: Noteworthy, Purple: Major
      New Features
      Core:
      Added new option to DBM-Core timer options that allows shorter text to be used for certain timers that would otherwise have timer text that's very long and often truncaded. This option is on by default but can be disabled if you prefer real spell names on timers over shorter (and sometimes not technically correct) spell names on them. Emerald Nightmare:
      Added additional mod stubs/combat detection for newly added bosses to Dungeon Journal. The Nighthold:
      Added complete mod for Trilliax from heroic testing Added complete mod for Chronomagic Anomaly from heroic testing. Added additional mod stubs/combat detection for newly added bosses to Dungeon Journal. Hellfire Citadel:
      Added auto assignments for SOAKERS on Mythic Archimonde that matches the common paragon weak aura for assignment order (group based). This makes DBM a COMPLETE solution for mark of the legion that doesn't rely on any 3rd party augmentation. Make sure raid leader sets appropriate desired option for where players with DEBUFF go to ensure matching to your strat (this feature was added in an earlier DBM version). Auto soaker assignments honors this setting as well (which means if RL disables Mark of legion, this too is disabled). Added an option (off by default) for expert users to disable the raid leaders ability to override their Mark of Legion settings. Some raid leaders don't trust DBM and will disable it for raid and force weak aura usage even when DBMs assignments not only match the weak auras, but have superior features like the HUD that make mark of legion easier. Now these expert users can override their raid leader for their personal mod. If override is enabled then mark behavior uses the USERS drop down setting for mark of legion behavior. Make sure you set this correctly so it actually DOES match weak aura's RL is having guild use. Broken Isles:
      Added Mod stubs with auto loading and combat detection for Nithogg and Soultakers. Legion Dungeons:
      Added complete mods for Halls of Vallor Added complete mods for Maw of Souls Added complete mods for Neltharians Lair Added complete mods for Eye of Azshara Added complete mods for Grove of Wardens Added complete mods for The Arcway Updated stubs/combat detection for Court of Stars (no warnings yet, dungeon has yet to be tested at time of this release) Bug Fixes
      Core:
      Fixed bug where DBM was reloading mod options on level up needlessly. This also fixed a lua error when leaving dungeons in legion alpha when you de-leveled from 110 back down to 10x. Fixed a lua error when moving special warning frame. Fixed a few missed calls to old Battle.net apis. (New in 6.2.20) Fixed another missed Battle.net api. (New in 6.2.21) Hellfire Citadel:
      Fixed a bug where the yells didn't match the icons on Mannoroth if the new "assign by role" feature is used. Changes
      Core:
      DBM-Core will now warn about DPM-Core (Deadly PVP Mods) conflicts. Updated DBM-Core auto invite accepting feature to be compatible with API changes in upcoming patch 6.2.4 DBM-Core now allows special warning duration to be lowered to 1 second, down from 3. This allows users to lower amount of time text is on screen from special warnings even more. Hellfire Citadel:
      Updated several timers across the zone to reduce text length and make them more readable when they are small bars. The Nighthold:
      Renamed DBM-Suramar to DBM-Nighthold. If you have a DBM-Suramar folder, go ahead and delete it. DBM will now ignore this folder and not load it as it's superseded by DBM-Nighthold For more DBM news, visit:
