Hey guys, I've been playing with this set on test and reading feedback on PTS forums for it, and I confess that I don't have a complete understanding of how or why this set works (or doesn't work) and who benefits from wearing it.
It caught my attention because some DK tank players on forum were excited about it and I wondered if it could or would do anything for me. So far my experiences with it on PTS are fairly positive, but without a comprehensive benchmark to compare it to, it's difficult for me to gauge just how useful it is. I was thinking it might make for a good 'off-role' suit, for situations where I need to be more DPS-focused and less 'tanky'. I'm still debating if I like it better in Heavy or Medium.
So what I am asking here really is the following:
- Can someone explain to me the formula of how Weapon and Spell Damage are derived normally
- Can someone explain to me how this suit set changes that formula?
- What buffs affect and would be most desirable to complement this set? I.e. Major Savagery, Major Brutality, etc.
- Is this something that a DK tank can benefit from at all times or am I mistaking hype for something useful, and thus are my positive PTS experiences with it merely a placebo effect?
Any sort of input or teaching help for how the mechanics behind-the-scenes work would be greatly appreciated.
