I have already pointed out in a previous post that f(n,k,p) is sound as far as theory goes. Choosing meaningful values of the parameters at hand is the difficult task.Originally Posted by Aggathon
Expanding on this : when the consumption rate of the mana pool is not really a concern, the average values of mitigation/avoidance (i.e. k/p) become irrelevant. The focus shifts to the instantaneous values that are likely to be found in a stress scenario. Correspondingly, one should like at the values of k/p in the context of "cooldowns" (used loosely, as a generic term), both intrinsic (abilities, active procs) and extrinsic (the so-called "raid cooldowns").
Furthermore, another pain in the arse. Block-type events. Warriors and paladins do not have the luxury of assessing k values regardless of the said events. (passive block-capping, Shield Block)
