That's what I figured, and it makes sense. Nice to get some clarification. :) Shield Block modeling would still be really cool though if you can get some time to work on it. Maybe with a checkbox to disable it if you want a more "worst case" scenario.
Actually, I just remembered another question I wanted to ask: I'm a bit (read: very) confused about the ranking system options. All this time I've just left it on "Mitigation Scale" set to 1.0 and ranked gear on the overall value. Over time I've
been dropping the threat value (down to 0.5 now) since my threat is just crazy-sick. Is this the correct way to use this model? I'm assuming so, as so far it's been working pretty well. I generate 2-3 times as much threat as any of our other tanks and I get
good reviews from healers all the time.
What are some examples where I would change these settings? I'm not really sure what they do or what they are for. Note that I'm talking about the "Ranking System" options, the others are pretty self-explanatory. (except maybe the "Attacker
Stats" thing, but I managed to figure that one out.)
If I can get it explained to me, I'd be happy to write a documentation page for the Wiki. ^^
