With the changes to vengeance, the keg smash nerf, and apparently a fix to some abilities vengeance scaling (which I'm also guessing is a nerf-fix) what is brewmaster tanking dps in 5.4? Are we still wrecking machines or do we mostly sit in line with the other tanks now?
The ability scaling change is a shift directly dependent upon our weapon quality and AP values. In effect, it is an increase to our base damage and a decrease to our high-vengeance scaling. The current net change is around a 6.24% damage loss for our non-KS spells and a 10.28% loss to Keg Smash damage, assuming 300k total AP and a 549 2h weapon.
The overall loss to dps is ultimately dependent upon the encounter, but may reasonably be as much as an 11% total nerf. At present Brewmaster average dps values on Raidbots top 100 parses are ~12% higher than Protection Paladins (who are #2) in both 10-H and 25-H.
