Guardian Druid question about Kromog

Hi, I hope this is the right place to ask this question.  Kromog's autos split their damage as a cleave.  I've noticed that these autos can be dodged.  As a guardian druid this is a main way I mitigate damage.  Does the damage still count as being split or am I simply pushing the whole hit onto my other tank?  I'm sure this is easy to test, but I have no current way of doing it.  

Please help!

Looking at WarcraftLogs on one attempt, I believe this is not the case, but there is a minor thing to clear up.

 

Kromog's melee attacks are not split; instead, his melee essentially always procs an ability called Fists of Stone, which is split. This leads to a different set of questions:

  • Is Fists of Stone dodgeable? Yes. I found I dodged it about 9 times over the course of the fight (I wasn't actively trying.).
  • If one tank dodges FoS, is the other tank penalized? No. Whether I dodged, absorbed or fully took the hit, my co-tank always took the same pre-mitigation damage. (You'll find it's very rare for damage split mechanics to penalize dodge/parry, but not unheard of.)
  • If the melee attack is dodged (or parried), does FoS proc? Yes. You cannot appear to cheat out of FoS procs via Savage Defense, etc. - if the melee is dodged or parried, FoS is still triggered to hit the 1-2 targets. In addition, the melee and FoS are separate - dodging/parrying the melee does not guarantee mitigating the next.
  • That said, GoE + Savage Defense seems particularly powerful here. The boss appears to have a ~2 second swing timer, and FoS hits .1-.5 sec later in my logs (but likely hits server side on the shorter end). This means that a single 3sec/100% SD could mitigate up to 4 hits as the current tank (melee, FoS, melee, FoS) - on normal, that's about 430k pre-mitigation damage for 50 rage! Combined with GoE's high uptime and low rage cost and the fact that post-Slam you can dip low, this seems like a winner. The Inconspicuous Bear has a post with some advice on timing.

I'm trying to find a swing timer addon to help plan GoE-SD and Bristling Fur - these extremely short mitigations are new to me. If anyone knows of one that works, let me know.

The addon, Quartz, contains a swing timer that is very accurate.

I have quartz; I believe that is player swing timer. I want a boss swing timer. I'll check though.

      restoration druid nerfs 8.1

      I saw on Wowhead that Restro druids are receiving a nerf to  Tranquility : Heals all allies within 40 yards for [(41%37% of Spell power) * 5] over 8 sec. Each heal heals the target for another 16 over 8 sec, stacking.
      Healing increased by 100% when not in a raid.

      I feel like its not necssary and are going to effect my healing in a bad way duh. (Nerfs normally do.) But as it is right now im far behind Mistweaver munks and every priest spec. 
      My Tranquility is my second higest if not the higest healing abillity i have (Thats what Details Tells me.) 

      And im unsure how the Autumn leaves changes is gonna effect me, wheter or not its for the better or worse.

      What do you guys think?

      This is my first post please no roast 👶

      Any opinion on the Azerite gear with "Flesh rending"?
      I tried it and although it makes you add "Thrash" to your rotation, all your shreds now deal 926 more dmg, which brings Shred from 2090 dmg (2508 on bleeding targets) to 3016 (+20% on bleeding targets). My dps went up quite a lot since I took this Azerite talent.
      Although it is mentionned in the Icy Veins "Azerite Traits" page on the Feral DPS section, it does not appear on the Azerite Trait Chart, showing how much % it brings to you dps compared to other traits. I haven't seen any Youtube Feral Player mention it in their video either.
      I wonder if it would be worth it to change some feral talents for something that allows to cast more shreds (like Moment of clarity, etc.. 
      Try it. It's worth it. It might be our savior.
