I still have to figure out why some are 1 point off. Without access to the internal rounding rules it's hard to figure out where that extra point comes from. Is there something small missing in the equation or is it floating point error (or both)? I'm building up a stack of 50% pet foods so I can do some better testing.

Jerebear wrote:2. Weighted statistical rounding: If a value has a 0.25 decimal, then 1/4 of the time it will round down and 3/4 of the time it will round up (on average given enough statistical data points). You see this sometimes in ability damage calcs and reputation gains...or at least you used to in wrath/cata, but haven,t checked in a couple years).
Kring wrote:I don't think this is correct in regard to reputation. I play a human, with the diplomacy racial, which means if you get 18 reputation for a mob kill, I will get 19.8. And as far as I remember in that example I would always get 19, 19, 19, 19 and then 20 reputation in this pattern and not a random value of either 19 or 20. Meaning I will never see two times 20 reputation in a row.
I always assumed that reputation is stored as real number so it remembers fractions of reputation gains. Could be the same for XP.

I.E. "If you want to level up 2 Level 1 pets using a Level 25 Carrying pet, then go to Trainer 'X' first for the most XP" and so on?
Maybe I'm just lazy to look through the grids but I do find this oddly fascinating. Great work!

low-level tamer (WS or Deadwind, or Antari) -- carry pet is lvl 9.5
4x Pandaria tamers -- carry pet jumps to lvl 16, then 20, then 22.9, then 25, with virtually no wasted XP.
