LDB Tooltip

MeleePoints is a gear benchmark addon similar to TankPoints, but for melee combat. It is designed to make it easier for melee classes to compare items and and balance combat related attributes, e.g.:

  • Strength
  • Attack Power
  • Haste Rating
  • Hit Rating
  • Expertise Rating
  • Agility
  • Crit Rating

It also displays your effect Combat Table against mobs and bosses, showing the chances for

  • Miss Chance: your attack will miss
  • Enemy Dodge Chance: enemy will dodge your attack
  • Enemy Parry Chance: enemy will parry your attack (if you're not attacking from behind)
  • Glancing Chance: your attack will be a glancing blow
  • Block Chance: enemy will block your attack (if you're not attacking from behind)
  • Crit Chance: your attack will be a critical hit
  • Hit Chance: your attack will land a regular hit
  • Armor Reduction: amount the mob's armor will reduce the damage of an attack

MeleePoints detects and supports all relevant talents and almost all set and equipment bonuses.


  • handle "top and bottom" slots for Main/Off, Trinket1/Trinket2, Ring1/Ring2
  • figure out how to calculate a weapon's speed, so that is properly taken into account in an item's tooltip
  • add MeleePoints to the paperdoll
  • add LDB tooltip to the paperdoll's item
  • create a calculator, ala TankPoints and HealPoints

    i had no idea anyone used this.

    i've been neglecting it, in favor of TankPoints. But the care and feeding that has gone into LibStatLogic that is the magic library behind TankPoints, HealPoints, RatingBuster and MeleePoints has been getting updated, and might go a long way towards some of the logic in MeleePoints.

    But i've not updated MeleePoints to handle new chances of miss, crit, dodge, parry , block, glancing, expertise, hit, etc.
