"Proving stuff is hard. Most of the people that have replied to you aren't making random guesses"
sorry, but i do belive that most people who rant about ehp know very little of the equations behind it
"Yeah, half the people that replied so far don't need tankpoints to do the math for them - we can do it ourselves."
if that were true, it wouldnt be all that hard to prove with math now would it? controdiction. pick one side. this is borderline trolling.
"Well, you can ask for math all you like, it doesn't apply to the situation. Using the term "cap" in regards to defense is a mistake. That's not math, it's linguistics, I think. Calling it a hard cap is rather stupid."
this again make no sence, the only thing that applies are the equations behind the stats.. the rest is oppinion which for the purpose of this post is a joke. the word "cap" refers to thresholds hense the title " defence support thresholds" I already covered the fact the the term is slightly misleading, in the portion where i speak of the actual defence hard cap (102.4%) . if you want to call it stupid, write to blizzard, I didnt invent the terms.
"I tried looking for the "9% miss threshold," but can't find anything. Please explain the concept."
google "defence hard cap" and go from there.. be.imba.uk is a good place to start aswell.
its not a concept, its a machanic, just one that few ppl pay attention to. its also of of the foundations of the defence stat. ( furthermore, partly why blizz is doing away with the defence soft cap, but not the defence stat in cata)
these thresholds are the same as the ones you follow if your dpsing or pvping. if your a dps, you stick to a hit cap and an expertise cap. its this same machanic in reverse. higher defence equals a greater chance to miss on the tank. And marrowgar cant stack hit, so the returns are very reliable. Im not explaining the entire table, and the properties ran thru the RNG ( random number gen.) But you can find information about it. Im under the impression Blizz plans on making this the dominate machanic behind defence rating in cata. If they keep the stat at all.
