it's called being egotistic and wanting to be a part of a circle jerk
It's the mentality that makes the Wow Pvp community so hard to get into
I'm not sure about that - I'm only a member because I've never even broken 1700, and probably never will.
So, when the change happened, I thought it was pretty cool that I could post in the rogue forums. But now that I've read through the rogue forums for the past few weeks and seen what the discussions have devolved into, I'm almost wishing my posting rights would be revoked so that the other non-junkies' posting rights would be revoked also.
I'm not all the way to wanting that, but it's pretty close. It's awesome seeing the forums more active, and having more great posts to read than before, but it comes with the cost of a lot more of the shite posts to go with the good ones.
If damage on 14,000 armor, to use a clothie as an example, has about 25% reduction to a melee hit and a hit = 1 damage, then...
damage done with 0 armor is about 1 / (1 - 25%) = 1.33.
Using that same picture, if we reduce armor by 70% (old find weakness), they're down to 4200 armor. According to the graph, that's about a 9% reduction to a melee hit, so damage done = 1.33 * 0.91 = 1.21 damage
Using that same picture, if we reduce armor by 50% (new find weakness), they're down to 7000 armor. According to the graph, that's about a 13% reduction to a melee hit, so damage done = 1.33 * 0.87 = 1.16 damage
No FW = 1 damage
New FW = 1.16 damage
Old FW = 1.21 damage
In other words, if I've understood the math correctly, our burst due to changing from the old Find Weakness to the new Find Weakness has only decreased by 0.05 / 1.21 = 4%
And if my math is wrong, maybe that's why people like me weren't allowed to post on these forums before this week
