    Default TOV Mitigation

    It has been a while since there has been a thread on the Guard forums, I figured I would try to breathe some life into it.

    I get the hard push for Mitigation for raid tanks this expac, but has anyone done testing or number crunching to find the diminishing returns? I have done minimal raiding on my Guard this expac so I haven't studied incoming damage/act too much. What I do know is with temp buffs we can easily push 20-21k solo if not more, I know I am with tier 1 potent gear and heroic jewelry. At what point are we hitting the cap for lvl 103 mobs? I would love to drop a few mit pieces in return for some dps.

    Thanks!

    Test vs first mob in Sanctum (too lazy to change AA spec before this one)



    Lvl 103 Epic creature conjuror thing from the guild hall guy (no damage reduction AA buffs/runes, just straight mit)

    Looking at that data, and comparing it with my own test I'd say you went into defensive stance for all points from 8256 mitigation, which does include a 5% damage reduction.

    The formula for mitigation against a level 103 epic x4 would then be, assuming the summoned monsteres are behaving the same as actual epics:

    Mit% = (Mitigation - 3350) / (1.02469 x (Mitigation - 3350) + 2660)
    With a cap of 83.55% which you hit at 18800 mitigation. This formula only works for mitigation values above about 4800, below which it appears to be completely lineair.

    The point for 75% mitigation, which is the cap according to the tooltip but not according to the tests done, is at ~11968 mitigation.


    If some serious people would like me to posts the raw data and some graphs, feel free to ask.
