Why bother have four then if one is identical im happy to get a new rare but i was hoping for something other then a repeat.
If you look at IfniLuck's flowchart you can see the dmg theme up the middle section was always two fold i.e. one column on each of the other two buff types sides, it was predictable, expected and verified for 2 identical buff top tier tribbles.
The final document is shaping up nicely. It includes a page of credits and references, which still has a bit of room left over, so I thought I'd fill in the gap with some trivia. We know that all the tribbles were named after cryptic developers. Most were easy to identify, but there's still some who apparently never gave or were mentioned in an interview, and I can't find an official list of credits anywhere. Can anyone help me fill in the gaps?
The one's I've identified are:
cavallaro : Michael Cavallaro : Lead Visual Effects Artist
deangelo : Stephen D'Angelo : Lead Programmer
dotson : Lee Dotson : Art Director
griffis : Dan Griffis : Content Designer
harrington : Joe Harrington : System Designer
henry : Michael Henry : Audio Director
highison : Matt Highison : Lead Character Artist
jasperson : Tracy Jasperson : Animator

rivera: Al Rivera : Lead Designer
sparkes : Zeke Sparkes : Senior Game Designer
stahl : Daniel Stahl : Producer

velasquez : Andy Velasquez : Associate Producer
zinc: Craig Zinkievich : Executive Producer
Not a dev, but I did find a reference:
daxter : Daxter Tiberius : Matt Highison's Dog
Other cryptic employees I've found references to, mainly with regard to Champions Online, but don't know their titles or what role they played in this game, if any. Anyone know?
