Infraction: 6. Do not post unless you have something new and worthwhile to say.
Points: 1

Message to User:

Since you'll no doubt resent being given an infraction by someone who doesn't play your class as a main, here's the original report that convinced me you're probably dumb. Note that the person reporting your post was in fact a DK player.

This guy is just general idiocy at its best
He just mixes up everything in regards to autoattack vs instant attack, combines them in a way that it has nothing to do with ingame behaviour and then draws a conclusion out of it that Item1>>Item2.
Which then just happens to contradict the "Slow > Fast" (TPS-wise) for tanking DK.

Original Post:

Stop comparing apples and oranges.
You first normalise the damage, to get the damage it would deal with an instantattack, then you go and pretend like the autoattack damage is calculated like an instantattack (normalised), which it ISN'T.

What you did with Lionhead Slasher is, you scaled it like a 2.4 weapon, but let it attack like a 1.5 weapon, you just manage to give it 60% haste without telling it anybody.

Your right, I wasn't paying attention and ran the normalized math against the autoattacks. But the fact of the faster doing more dps is still there

looking at just the 245 lionhead and the 245 grinder

1. LH = 384 + ( 5121 / 14 ) = 749.79
2. Gr = 665 + ( 5121 / 14 ) = 1030.79

Look at the best possible damage over 39 sec with no crits you get.

1. 19494.54 = 499.86 dps (324.91 dps oh) = 824.77 total dps
2. 15461.85 = 396.46 dps (257.70 dps oh) = 654.16 total dps

That is a 170.61 dps increase at my ap for the 245 lionheads (x 2) over the 245 grinders (x 2) is not a small amount.

Instead of just statements, has there actually been any shown proof or math that shows that the difference in damage from the yellow attacks (looking at a bias that doesnt include crits) is that far if at all ahead of the 170 dps increase the 1.5's would give the from the white attacks alone?
