35% of 40k is 14k. So lets breakdown a possible screnario using numbers I observed in my last toc25 run
I end up at 15-20k hp at any given time in the fight.
I take a rough hit from lets say BNR, biggest one so far I've clocked (not using parses) was 24k.
Where did blooddraing help me there?
Now lets say, just maybe, that .42 dodge or w/e you get from mongoose was up (not an unreasonable assumption) and that was the difference between taking a hit and avoiding it Completely.
One scenario I'm dead, the other I'm alive.
These are not made to order scenarios, they happen frequently and are more often than not unnoticed as it can be mere milliseconds between avoiding a hit and recieving mass heals that make you think nothing just happened.
I start to ramble, i'm not exactly sober but to me this looks if not conclusive hard evidence with numbers for all the number crunchers, at least some common sense that the argument for mongoose is very valid.
Yes i know i currently have blood draining on my weapon, I just got back from a long break, id continue this but my drunk brother just walked in.
point in case, im prolly switching to mongoose, do w/e you want
