I was messing about with the different armour sets I've got for my Swordmaster (Anni/Sent/Conq) and trying to figure out which Set Bonuses to plump for.
I could not look past the 3 Piece Bonus of +320 Spirit Resist on Annihiator and the 2 Piece Bonus of +344 Corporeal Resist without wondering exactly how much more defense this would give me over the other defensive stats, like +66 Toughness Bonus from Sentinel.
So I decided to parse my combat logs to see exactly how much whack I took from the 4 different damage types.
Here's the results.
This is total damage inflicted on me (a Tank) during 45 mins combat time before any mitigation or absorbs are taken into account.
How I did this
I used combat log parser and saved the file as text and imported that into excel. I then sorted the spreadsheet by ability name and created a pivot table to sum all damage from each ability. Then the tedious bit. I looked on WarDB at each ability and made a note of the damage type. Then added it all up. I'll be happy to provide better instructions to anyone who's interested.
I was suprised to see how much damage came from magic compared to physical, thought it would've been more like 33%:66%. Also, just how little elemental damage I took. No need for +Elem on items then but definely need to keep the Spirit and Corp high.
There's a hell of a lot more useful information to come out of this and I'll be making some more posts in the coming days, things like the amount of Burst and Crit damage, the amount of damage from each archetype and my %mitigation.
Wait 'til you see the breakdown of damage per class and just how much Sorcs accounted for! Stay tuned for that one.
