Reaction and Burst Time - Theorycrafting

Post by Heartwood » Tue Jun 03, 2008 11:03 am

Here is a good article examining the effects of avoidance and effective health on two new concepts in tanking: reaction time, and burst time. Not for the faint of heart....lots of stats and math.

Tagging this to read when I get home. I may not have a university math degree, but probability and statistics are one of my favorite subjects.

sooo, the whole thread in one line....

Balance your avoidance and health.

how hard was that?
stats to me are simply a way of making people sound smarter than they actually are, hell i read a lot of articles that are 50 pages long, and 30 pages of it are an attempt by the author to explain how smart theya re for coming up with their stat design and 20 pages showing that their results (if looked at correctly) actually prove and say nothing but their desing was brilliant. fucking stats....

More accurately I'd summarize the article as:

"Optimize your EH and Avoidance given the caveat of different styles incoming boss damage (and here's how)."

Anything without proof, is only opinion.

It's the thought that counts, not how many people die because of it.
