Anyone know how many times/second various raid bosses attack and if it changes based on difficulty?
I'm just about to make my second GS item for my tank character and I can't decide between air guard or lightning strike guard. Air guard is a lot cheaper and adds some good utility for soloing while lightning strike guard will add hate while tanking. However, the amount of hate that it adds is dependent on the amount of times that it procs in a boss fight, I'm wondering if anyone knows what the odds are ...
Take Sully, Horoth or Harry for instance. As a null hypothesis perhaps we can assume that have 20 BAB and have the same attack speed as a TWF'ing character (maybe with an offhand claw). That would result in 86.7 attacks/minute with some percentage of offhand attacks (according to your thread on attack speeds). If that was the case, assuming no offhand attacks, a lightning strike guard would give about 16 DPS (86.7/60*550*.02). That's quite considerable.
Anyone know for sure attack speeds or hits/minute?
