This week, the spotlight is on Sacred Duty, the blog of (mostly) Theck, who is the mathy brains behind much of today’s Paladin tank theorycrafting. Obviously, Sacred Duty is a great resource for Protection Paladins, but the reason why we decided to feature it in our WoW Spotlight this week is because it is a great resource, period.
While Sacred Duty features a great many articles for Protection Paladins, Theck sometimes also writes more general articles, which are always a delight to read. For example:
- Tanking in general: 5.4 updated threat bonuses, avoidance diminishing returns coefficients for all tanks, Vengeance in WoD;
- Theorycrafting for the masses: introduction to SimulationCraft, elegant proof of the proc buff uptime formula using Markov chains, analysis of the legendary cloak proc nerf;
- Humor and reflections on the state of the game: Flex and LFR analysis, the Timeless Isle on PvP servers, BlizzCon wrap-ups (part 1 - part 2).
