Logs comparison from a mythic raider, please?

7 posts in this topic

So I am not very good at reading logs, I simply just get confused trying to figure it all out, so I'm hoping maybe one of you would be willing to break this down for me like you're talking to a 5th grader.


So, Eyeball (me) cannot seem to keep up with my guildie Spingy, however according to our armories, I'm only one item level lower. However, looking at the logs I'm about to post, he kicked my ass shamefully. This is just one sloppy kill of Flamebender on mythic, but it's a good example of the average difference between he and I.


So, logs:


Eyeball: Mythic Flamebender Ka'graz

Spingy: Mythic Flamebender Ka'graz


You can see on our kill that I wasn't even close in DPS, and I really can't figure out what I'm doing wrong. I'm hoping someone can give me some feedback on what to do (or not to do) to pull my numbers up.

See how most of his damage to the cinder wolfs are from Doom. He is going meta and Cataing the wolves to put a doom on them. The fight (all of BRF really) is bugged so that things that are no longer alive still take damage. So those wolves are taking Doom ticks long after they are DEAD this HUGELY inflating his numbers.


Your damage for your ilvl is a little low but only ~5k-ish low, not the 15k that it looks like compared to your friend.

I had a feeling he was padding purposely lol. But how do I raise my ~5k, is that just not enough uptime on DoTs? Maybe put my pet on passive and direct him to stay on bosses with adds so he doesn't stop his consistent attack? I certainly don't want to fall behind in damage.

Doom on the Wolves is NOT padding. Just to make that clear. It's just an (un)fortunate effect on this boss due to how they coded it.

He isn't really padding, I mean he might be, but Doom on wolves doesn't always equal padding necessarily. If he is throwing Dooms up when they have 1% hp, then ya he is padding for paddings sake. But if the Dooms are just from the cata he is casting then it isn't really padding, it's just blizzard having no idea how to code a game.

I'll take a crack at this when I get back to my home PC later on. There's likely a few things that can make up the difference but I won't know until I get the time to really look into it :) stay tuned!

Each raid tier we have gotten progressively better at our pace and we plan to be a competing guild in Legion. VV raids 3 nights a week for a total of 9 hours a week.   Progression: 5/7M 7/7H   Raid Times: 6-9PM Pacific Raid Days Tues, Thurs, and Sun Loot System: EPGP Voice Comm: Discord   Current Recruitment Needs:   Tank Will make considerations 1 RDPS of any class . 1 Strong healer with a good DPS os, prefer R Sham   All applications regardless of role and spec will be considered if you can make our raid times and perform to our standards.   Our guild is comprised of members who have been with us for quite awhile, over several raid tiers and and expansions. We are pretty close knit and are wishing to add to the team. Just because we are progression minded and serious about raiding does not mean we do not have fun and just be friends.

      The Ragged Banner is recruiting new blood!

      Be prepared to receive waves of Steamy Romance Novels from our tank, be set on fire by our rogue and deal with onslaughts of seagulls.

      We focus on mythic + and are working our way through the keystones. The aim is to keep the guild very small with flexible, active members and keep a good atmosphere, after all it's a game not a second job!

      Specifically we're interested in:

      Guardian Druid / Protection Warrior

      Resto Druid / Resto Shaman / Holy Priest / Mistweaver Monk (because my brain doesn't work as Mistweaver) / Holy Paladin

      Ranged DPS:
      Balance Druid / Mages(of all kinds) / Hunters (the ones which pull everything)

      Melee DPS:
      Fury / Arms Warrior

      If your spec isn't in the list, don't hesitate to contact us anyway! We're always welcoming more and can weave you into the dungeon runs!

      Contact myself or any member of the rag tag bunch in game or on this forum for more information.

      Like A Boss - 7/7H Recruiting Ranged DPS and Heals for Mythic progression.
      About us:
      Like A Boss was founded during WotLK by a small group of in real life friends. We are formerly a 10-man Heroic raiding guild that raided throughout WotLK and went on a hiatus during Firelands (Cataclysm). We are a semi-hardcore guild, and are looking for dedicated members who are able to make majority (if not all) of our scheduled raids.
      What we are looking for:
      We currently have 15 raiders and we are looking to recruit more members to join our flexible raid roster so that we may progress into Mythic raids. At this moment, we are only seeking out ranged DPS (prefer lock, mage, or hunter) and healers (prefer druid or monk).
      Additional information and scheduled raids:
      Our raids are currently on Tues/Wed/Sun from 6:30pm PST till 8:30pm PST and we use Ventrilo for our raids. We typically try out new recruits for at least a week or two to ensure that it is a good fit for both the recruit as well as our guild. Raid spots are not guaranteed due to the flexible raid roster (ie. if we only have 2 healers available, we cannot do 20man that night).
      If you are interested in our guild or want to know more, please message/add Shells-Bloodscalp or Ryozul#1598. For the horde!
