Prot paladin vs. Brewmaster on WotE

Last night I co-tanked Will of the Emperor with a Brewmaster. I danced nearly perfectly until towards the end and we one-shotted it, but according to recount my co-tank took about 7 million less damage than me at 16 million and 9 million respectively. That's a very high disparity and I want to know if that's normal, if I'm doing something wrong, or if that fight favors Brewmasters for some reason.

This.

Also, were you using your cooldowns appropriately? Not that CD's would account for 7 million damage, but were you saving GoAK for Titan Gas, etc?

Recount does wonky things with regard to stagger. I'm not sure you can use recount to accurately judge damage from any one readout.

Also, the fight plays really well to elusive brew. It can be up for almost the entire period they are actually meleeing. All tanks can game the combo to a degree, but Paladins less so than others because holy power has a low cap relative to the generation/expenditure rate.

prettymuch, Stagger damage falls under "friendly fire" damage so if you add that and damage taken it should give you alittle better picture of whats actually happening, or you could just look at healing recieved to see if your really taking that much more damage (but i doubt it)

My recount doesn't even display stagger damage under friendly fire anymore. It used to though.

I don't think stagger damage actually appears anywhere anymore, but healing taken should be a decent indicator.

Healing needed is a better indicator than damage taken in this world of healing tanks and stagger and all that.

So much 'damage taken' gets erased in the case of a DK, or taken 'twice' in the case of a monk, that it's simply not a meaningful metric any more.

Small question that is sort of on-topic and doesn't deserve its own thread:

Holy Avenger would be the talent of choice for WotE right? Since Titan Gas comes what, every 2.5 minutes, so it would line up pretty well. Unless I'm wrong. (I have been in the past.)
