    ... @Jean-Luc_Picard is sitting in a bar alone since he was confused about the group's plans...
    Haha...
    Amusing, because when I group, since I'm the tank, it's usually me who leads and inform about the tactics ;)
    I like the bar idea though... I'll have a pint of Guinness, thanks.

    Why so long ?

    "My opinion based on imaginary numbers and some self proclaimed majority is fact, and this makes me and those who agree with me highly intelligent and everyone else <insert random insult here>"

    Rince and repeat for every delete post.


    You can't have facts when the provider of the facts are the very ones controlling the market. 


    You can have one billionaire with a microphone, against five thousand small guys.... What side do you think will get their way ?
    You're like the "flat earth" believers, you live in your own little bubble of "truth" and you deny any proven facts outside of that.

    Tell me... you don't believe the earth is flat, do you ? Because I tell you, it's a NASA conspiracy !

    1. Argonian -> Extra healing output and input, plus a built in resource management system and a health bonus.
    2. Imperial -> 12% health is still a massive bonus that cannot be neglected.
    3. Nord / Orc -> Both have good tanking traits, but are not as strong as the ones listed above.
    Coming back about this...
    Nords have +20% health regen and +9% health, along with -6% damage taken.
    Doesn't sound that bad compared to +12% health and 10% chance to regen 6 health on melee attacks...
      Mitigation > healing received > health regen is my understanding of survival priority in ESO.

    Fact is, the harder you get hit, the more the Nord's tanking racials are efficient compared to the Imperial.
    When the Imperial has a slight advantage on small hits, the Nord has a large advantage on harder hits (like you encounter on high end bosses).

    As you said... mitigation > all. -6% hard damage is at least as efficient as just 3% more health bonus.

    Also, mitigation adds up every hit, unlike max health. At the end, the Nord wins.
    You obviously have a fondness for Nords (and mead? :)) I don't use them and didn't even in Skyrim. IDK why. Maybe it's just that everything they say sounds to me like something from the movie Fargo.
    There's no fondness and just pure maths in my argument.
    6% pure mitigation add up every single hit, and at the end, give a greater advantage than a raw +3% health (9% vs 12%).
    Do the math... ;)

    That does Basically collaborate my link also .. There is not alot seperating 3-5 So Nord could squeeze in there at 3 .. But  Argonian and Imperial excel in nearly every Encounter
    Yeah. Like I said earlier, I trust Woeler on tanking related things because that has been his obsession for several years. And I'm not the only one. Most raid min-maxers consider him the definitive source.
    Could it be possible that his obsession made him blind of simple maths ?

    Let's start with 30k health for the sake of it (result is same for any amount)...

    On a 2K hit, the Imperial has a small advantage....

    30000 12 0 2000 33600 31600
    30000 9 6 2000 32700 30820






    30000 12 0 33600 33600 0
    30000 9 6 33600 32700 1116

    But on a hit that would kill the imperial, the Nord survives with over 1000 health.

    Same is true for added up small damage over the course of a whole fight: at the end of the day, the Nord takes less damage and requires less healing overall. Because active mitigation adds up each damage taken, while raw health bonus remains the same and needs to be topped by the healers.
    Facts.

    Thats a big difference at End Game Jean
    Bulllshit.
    You have 3% less health bonus, but 20% more health regen and also a -6% fixed damage reduction against ALL damage. Not to mention the additional frost resistance nords have for specific situations.
    Your "big" difference is only in your mind.

    Did you even think before posting ?

    I should always respect my ignore list and not give new chances... lesson learned.

    EDIT: I actually doubt you even play ESO regularly, even less do any "high end" content in it. I do. So whatever you say, back to the "I don't want to read your nonsense" list.
