Str/Agi and dmg-reduction from Mobs
Posted 12 January 2006 - 09:34 AM
as you probably know, paladins got a new talent called vindication with 1.9. Having 2 melee palas in a raid group, you can easily keep the debuff of vindication on the mobs the whole time. This talent reduces Str/Agi from Mobs by 15%. When debuffed, i usually see about 7-10% less incoming (melee) dmg on our tanks. Does anyone of you know the forumula how str/agi affects mobs?
If i am right, this talent is amazing. When fighting Broodlord, it is equal to buff a tank with a 20% kings-blessing. As you know, the improved version of lay on hands was nerfed on the PTR (+50% armor for 5 minutes). Going from 10k armor to 15k results in a damage reduction of roughly 9%. Imho, vindication is even better than the original ptr-loh.

Vindication, in this case, would reduce chromaggus's melee damage, dodge and crit rate by 15%
now Nefarion is made differently - the designers gave him 2000 points of pure attack power and +10% pure crit. he has 0 strength and 0 agility. Vindication does nothing at all to him
these are just examples, I have no idea what the actual stats on these bosses are - but if you can get that information (beast lore?) you can get an idea of how much vindication will help you against any given raid boss
