Mar 28th 2012 11:17AM Question, after reading the Dev Watercooler yesterday about the LFR loot rules, I was wondering if there is a loot "cap" for each boss. From the way it sounds, in theory all 25 players could be "lucky" enough to get loot from a boss dying.

"The attack table is filled out in that order, from top to bottom. Now, criticals are kept in for the sake of completion here (I've left out a few things that tanks need never worry about, such as glancing or crushing blows) but against bosses, the critical chance is always 0% provided you've specced correctly. There are mobs, however, who can crit despite having those talents but that's not going to be covered in this thread.
It's worth noting here that player attacks use the same sort of attack table (I'll touch on this later)"

You've missed the point of what I was saying. I was not saying it was a two system roll, but rather Crit Cap & Block Cap are not the same thing. The 102.4% CtC assumes that you are Crit Capped through Sanctuary. CtC pushes "regular" hits off the table. Sanctuary pushes "critical" hits off the table.
Jan 20th 2012 4:10PM The block cap isn't even really my biggest concern with Prot Paladin tanking as it currently stands. My biggest problem is the lack of magic reduction. Matt, I'd like to see an article that details the four tanking classes of today (Paladin, Warrior, Druid & DK) and analyze the magic damage that can be mitigated without the usage of cooldowns. Druids with Natural Reaction & DK's with Blade Barrier get more magical mitigation.
Jan 20th 2012 4:00PM You're talking two completely different things. Block capped does not mean that you will never be crit, it means you will never have a melee hit that isn't a Block, Dodge, or Parry. Crit capped through Sanctuary means that you will never ever have a critical, crushing, etc. hit. If you are Blocked Capped and not Crit Capped, the Crit will be mitigated, but you'll still be crit. Your healers will hate you.
