    Thanks a lot for your input Ion. It seems that you understand the nature of the problem a lot better than most people. Being a math major, having the required data to make a good model is my dream...

    I still don't think you understand what I mean. Atleast your answer seems unrelated to the topic of predicting what ability is best in a given situation.

    You don't need to argument for or against...

    I never said that not taking any damage and then taking two massive hits was good for healer mana (or for yourself for that matter). Let me exemplify a bit:

    Say you take 101 1k hits within 6...

    Reviving this again to start a discussion on how to estimate spiky damage.

    @Aggathon: Your "graph" is a bit too black and white. I think the situation is more like this:

    Thanks a lot for your input Aggathon, although at first it sounded like you were arguing that the abilities are situational, on which we all agreed in the first place.

    I think it is indeed...

    I know that the configuration options are limited and also hard to use if you haven't done any programming before. You can hide the glow by setting its alpha to 0 though. I thought about adding an...

    It differentiates between physical and non-physical damage. Damage is not flagged as blockable/unblockable, so the best it can do is to look at physical damage (or keep a list of all...

    Well, I'm not entirely sure it scales linearly. The formula seems to be spot on only when at 60 rage, but maybe the difference is due to something else, ie. when the addon updates the estimates.

    For Shield Barrier, there's a formula for determining the value. Blizzard haven't stated exactly how it scales with rage, but I'm assuming that it scales linearly, which seems to be accurate within...

    absorb = max(2 * (attackPower - 2 * strength), stamina * 2.5) * (min(60, rage) / 60)
