 Hey guys. This is my first time posting, so I apologize if I have posted this in the wrong thread or if there's a better place I could have put it. Please let me know if that's the case. I have a question regarding Paladin damage calculations. I've searched through this thread, the previous Simple Questions threads and a number of other resources, but have been unable to find an answer. I'm hoping someone could point me in the right direction. From what I understand, the standard damage calculation (the minimum and maximum damage shown in your character statistics) is said to be: Damage = ((Weapon Damage / Weapon Speed) + (AP/14)) * Weapon Speed This equation works correctly for a number of other classes, however I'm having issues applying it to my Retribution Paladin. I understand that Two-handed Weapon Specialization provided us with 20% more damage, however my calculations are still coming up short. For example, my (unbuffed) melee stats are: Damage: 3569 – 4360 Attack Power: 6893 (492.4 DPS) My weapon stats are: Weapon Damage: 1291 - 1937 Weapon Speed: 3.30 Using the above calculation gives me (for the minimum damage of the damage range): Damage = ((Weapon Damage / Weapon Speed) + (AP/14)) * Weapon Speed Damage = ((1291 / 3.30) + (492.4)) * 3.30 Damage = 2916 I have been attempting to add 20% to it like so: 2916 * 0.20 = 583.2. 583.2 + 2916 = 3499.2 Adding 20% to the initial weapon damage (1291) instead also comes up short. Is there anything that I'm missing here within my calculations? Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.
