The Radiance Aura buff is largely a band-aid to correct the scaling of avoidance that Blizz did not have the foresight to predict. As it stands now, a tank in T6 gear, if they stack avoidance, can achieve nearly 70% pure avoidance (dodge + parry + miss).So when designing the Sunwell, Blizz had two options:1) Make the bosses hit so incredibly hard that two consecutive hits will kill the tank, and basically the only way to tank them successfully is to not get unlucky with the RNG2) Artificially lower their avoidance somehowOption #1 does not sound like much fun for anyone, so they opted to reduce avoidance, by means of a passive buff to the mobs.
