    Hi Satori,

    First of all, let me thank for your excellent work. Your detailed and patient answers to my old questions about my custom IT-oriented build in the old tanking thread helped me get past...

    Right; but you can create a mathematical model which, when you plug in specific damage and healing scenarios, will give you a formula for conversion of avoidance and mitigation into EHP. This is...

    Sorry about making it long, I thought this was an issue deserving of exploring in some depth.

    However, I don't think I did a good job of explaining what exactly I was trying to accomplish.

  4. Tanking A model for quantifying tanking trinket proc/on-use values

    Hi all.

    We all know how to quantify the DPS trinket procs: normalize proc strength over expected uptime, and voila! you got a passive stat equivalent. However, I have never seen any model for...

    Right, for some reason i thought Ebon Plague got refreshed by some other moves; must be my mind playing tricks on me... anyway, this explains why you should twist, rather than let it drop, as Unholy....

    Blood tapping... at 1min refresh, you can do it every third disease refresh cycle as Unholy. And of course if you are Blood, you have plenty of HS spamming to do anyway.

    But you actually get more...

    Well, with canonical disease twisting, you wouldn't wait -- you would just switch the refresh order each cycle: first PS/IT (or IT/PS if running in), next cycle IT/PS, then PS/IT again, etc. What I...

    Perhaps some kind admin would move this thread there.

    Death Knight A question about disease twisting

    Hi all, I am relatively new to the DK DPS -- been at it at 80 less than 2 months -- and I have recently learned about disease twisting.

    The idea seems clear enough: change their order of...

    This sort of thing is why I use Disease glyph for single-target. the DPS loss in pure single-target is not drastic (I replace the Dark Death glyph, you lose the DC bonus, but you get to replace...

    I am my guild's only holy pally, which of course means that I am the guild's backbone on Valithria fight. We have recently started on 25-man heroic modes (yes, well, hence my realm's name --...

    Blizzard has declared that they are doing away with the great DK experiment, the attempt to make each tree suitable for either DPS or tanking. In Cata Dks will be like warriors are now -- one tanking...

    The difference is that with HS, you can simply spam HS heedlessly -- you will never accidentally break up an FU pair, preventing DS from going off. With IT spam you can, so you have to cast IT only...
