I'd like to run some numbers on Parry/Haste for DualWield DK Tanks.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

---- 2H Weapon - 2x 1H weapon ----

Weaponspeed: 3,5 2x 1,5

Elapsed Time: 60 Seconds

Boss Parrychance: 14%

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

2H Weapon:

60/3.5 = an average of 17.15 hits per minute (not taking HR into account)

17.15/100= .1715 -> .1715x14%= an average of 2.5 boss parries per minute.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

2x 1H Weapons:

60/1.5= 40 -> 40x2 = 80 hits per minute (counting both weapons)

80/100= 0.8 -> 0.8x14%= 11.2 boss parries per minute.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Since everybody is talking about getting hard expertise capped as DW DeathKnight tank I wanted to make a point that if you just degrade the boss parries to 2.5 per minute you'd have the exact incoming damage by boss parries as a 2H tanker. Taking that into account means you'll need less expertise and is easier to gear for.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

So in that case:

0.8x? = 2.5 -> ? = 3.125% is the percentage you want to be heading for

that means you only have to get 10.875% chance of his parries,

Every 8.2 expertise rating gives you 1 Expertise, Every 4 expertise gives you 1% reduction on Boss parry chance.

10.875x(8.2x4)= 356.7 Expertise Rating to level DualWield parries with 2H Parries.

I thought this might be interesting as getting hard capped is far harder then just reaching this kind of expertise.

Please feel free to comment and say if I'm wrong, I might be a little off.

Cheers
