Attributes: Power, attack, damage, boons
Posted 07 November 2012 - 07:19 AM
My goal is to find the highest dps between those choices. My problem is that nowhere in the hero panel does it actually show what my damage is; all it shows is power and attack and I've got no idea how those translate into damage. Without knowing what my damage is, I can't know what 10% of that is. Or is the +10% added to the skill damage? Then, I also don't know how power affects damage. Does +1 power = +1 damage?
Here's what I know: the might and fury gain when my pet reaches 25% health lasts 10s. The might applied to my pet when I crit lasts 1s. Given that I am level 80, my power is 1850, my attack is 2807, crit chance is 41, and crit damage is 47, can somebody please teach me how to calculate everything so I can finally determine what will give me the highest dps? PLEASE! I'm extremely frustrated with this. Thank you!

Maybe it will answer your questions, if not, ask again. Fundamentally, direct damage is a result of weapon damage and power. Power is influenced by might (0,375 x Level + 5 = Power and Condition Damage per stack).
As I see it, a tooltip "10% damage increase" means that the result of the direct damage formular is increased. It does not affect condition damage.

Damage done = (weapon damage) * Power * (skill-specific coefficient) / (target's Armor)
There's just way too many unexplained variables here that I'm hoping somebody could clear up for me.

For a comparison you have to define a situation first. For example how often will your pet reach 25% health? How often will you have full endurance? You can calculate in a defined situation (taking into account crits and your 197% crit end-damage) but you cannot know for sure how often such situations will occur in the real game. That makes the whole question rather difficult and perhaps not worth the effort imho.
