Un ottimo compendio per warden, ci sono in pillole quasi tutti i gambit (non capisco perchè alcuni manchino ??) e in particolare è molto utile (e spero vera) la parte matematica sul threat:
The point of this part of the guide it to better explain some elements of threat generation. Some basic information before we begin (based on posts by Graalx in the Warden forum):
threat magnitude is as follows:
Slightly Increased Threat = 0.5 * T(hreat from auto-attack)
Moderately Increased Threat = 1 * T
Increased Threat = 2 * T
Greatly Increased Threat = 3 * T
A skill with an ToT component only will do 4 times as much threat as a skill with direct threat only.
All threat legacies increase threat generated by a skill, however, there is no mathimatical formula for it. You can be assured that a rank 4 legacy adds more threat then a rank 2 legacy, but that doesn't mean that rank 4 does twice the amount of rank 2.
In order to figure out how much threat a skill generates (not counting legacies) we will build an equation using the following variables (based on work of Vmirtehpwn and post by Belaeren):
I = initial threat magnitude; based on tool-tip.
t = threat equivalent to that of single auto-attack.
4 = constant representing ToT pulses.
T = ToT magnitude; based on tool-tip.
The equation will be as follows:
Total Threat = I(t) + 4(T)
Thus, the threat for a skill like Percise Blow shall be calculated as follows:
Percise Blow Total Threat = 2(t) + 4(T) = 6t
In other words, Percise Blow generates 6 times the amount of threat of a single auto-attack.
Threat increasing legacies require a new equation to understand their effects (following based on post by Geoboy). We know that legacies increase threat in a linear fashion, but as we do not know excatly by how much we will assume a 20% increase to the previous rank of threat. Essentialy, if rank 2 generates 120% threat, then rank 3 generates 140% threat.
our variables for this equation will be:
A = initial threat with no legacy.
B = base bonus threat from legacy.
R = legacy rank.
Thus the equation is:
Total threat with ranked legacy = A + B + (B/5)*R.
so for a level 10 legacy the equation is this: A + B + (B/5)*10 = A + B + 2B = A + 3B
