    Much appreciated. Now might we hear from someone who actually knows shit.

    There's been at least 3 Paladins posting here that knows shit, but people don't get it. Stonestrong tried to dumb it down for some, but I doubt even that'll make much difference.

    Someone did post and didn't seem to get how normalization works so let me lay it out for those that aren't familiar with the process.

    Divide 50 (the cap that you are normalizing down to) by the sum of all transfers (for example, 41 + 19 + 17 = 77). Now multiply each transfer by the result (about 0.65, rounded). This will tell you how much each transfer actually contributes after normalization (approximately 26.7%, 12.3%, and 11% respectively). You can see that after normalization, they will add up to 50% (barring any issues with rounding).


    It's good to know how this works for funky situations, but as Stonestrong has pointed out, you don't necessarily have to know these exact numbers and their exact result to be effective. In the end, if your hate transfers don't suck, and you don't suck, you'll generally be fine.

    I tried the low level taunt and have the assasin go to town test a long time ago and it worked, and havent really worried about it since. One paticular fight does have me wondering what is going on though. When tanking the nexona adds, the damned things memwipe fairly often, and usually they arent a problem to get back right away, but now and then they memwipe to the assasin i have amends on. When this happens it doesnt matter what I do it wont always come off of him. I have tried rescue, holy ground, just dps and sometimes they work and sometimes they dont. It isnt really a big concern because the healers keep him up, but have been curious why this happens.

    I didnt know bout the normalization thingy...never really bother to learn or look for it before as a necro.

    pretty much, you dont want normalization to take effect on the person you have amends on, right? =P
