Blood Pact: Patch 4.2 Warlock Q&A {WoW}

Aug 16th 2011 12:19AM @Jhestor
About the only part I think you might be goofing up, is dividing the "extra damage done from DI" by the total raid dps - because the whole raid won't benefit from DI, only one person (and therefore one part of that total dps)...
Which is why I divided your 367k by 20k (assuming that it's only one person with 20k getting the benefit of the DI, and therefore chopping into the 367k.
Of course, it could be that I'm doing something wrong too :-p

Blood Pact: Patch 4.2 Warlock Q&A {WoW}

Aug 15th 2011 10:47PM "And some rough napkin math, from my perspective. The chart ranks arcane mages with DI as giving the raid a net of 1224 for a demonology warlock (which we use). That means that over a 5 minute encounter we're giving up a total of 367,200 boss health that could have been eliminated.

Given that my raid's total DPS averages out to roughly 20k per person for a total of 100k raid DPS, that means not giving me DI drops the length of the fight by 3 seconds for every 5 minutes a fight lasts."

Wait, so the lock can give DI to every single person in your raid if they don't give it to you (to reach the total of 100k raid DPS, 367,200/100,000=3 sec)?

If the DI is given to another raid member who does 20k dps, then 367,200/20000 is ~18 seconds/5 mins. Might not matter, although in some cases that might be the difference between another phase/another round of adds/etc

Addon Spotlight: Tidy Plates {WoW}

Jul 15th 2010 8:03PM When I started tanking, I installed Tidy/Threat plates, and OMG what a difference it makes - The other one I run in addition to this is MTHelper. Basically it displays who has Aggro when you hover over the nameplate...So when my screen goes from a bunch of small, green-outlined bars to having one big red one in the middle of them, as I'm taunting them back (I have taunt bound to middle-click on the mouse) I can also see who grabbed aggro off me.

Mighty useful for seeing if there's a trigger-happy dpser who keeps nuking mobs I've only got AOE threat on!
