Noticed the recent new changes to the tanking strategy on AMR and how its changed protection pallys. Not sure if its by design, but noticed with potency conduits there is no difference in rating between them when you dont meet the toughness threshold. I think this may then explain why it picked Punish The Guilty over Ringing Clarity…just so happens to be the first one in the list of potency conduits.
I dont think the simulation is taking into account the defensive bonus of Ringing Clarity when using the First Avenger talent which states it give a shield for 100% damage avenging shield gives. Its a pretty big shield when you pop Divine Toll, even more so when you have Ringing Clarity proc if you have the conduit as it causes the main target to take 3 shields instead of 1. This raises its defensive bonus even if its a potency conduit thus for meeting toughness ratings would probably be best to be recommended over the other conduits in the list.
