I'm just looking for a short answer or confirmation about how this works.
Yup, I've read several guides and explanations about it, but my brain's kind of mush atm, it's currently doing its own thing.
Okay, to the point.
I'm a Rogue. I just re-gemmed from full-out PvP power to a more defensive layout.
I went from 54% PvP power/61% resil to 44% PvP power/65.37% resil.'
I just decided to try this out after I checked out the Rogue guide on AJ, and saw this:
I know everyone's got different gear, and the guy who wrote that might base it off BiS gear or w/e. But how the hell does 10% PvP power equal 6.5%-ish damage output? Or ~5% resil equal 12% dmg reduction?Resilience scales slower than in patch 5.1. Going from full resilience gems to matching socket bonusses and focus on PvP Power increases damage done by about 6.5% but also means the rogue takes 12% more damage.
I'm quite off atm, and I should probably figure this out on my own when I'm a bit more lucid, but yeah.
Anyway, could anyone give me a quick little answer here?
