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!

      Origin

      Recruitment

      After losing some players to attrition following EN/ToV, we are currently seeking a few players to complete our mythic raiding team for Nighthold, with an emphasis on Healers and ranged DPS. In the meantime we will be gearing off regular heroic NH clears.

      Who are Origin?

      Origin are a long standing community of friends, formed with the goal of completing the hardest PvE content in World of Warcraft.

      The community within Origin consists of friends made in real life, as well as through our adventures over the past 10 + years of WoW. Our core officer team have been raiding since the early days of WoW and have experience in some of the hardest content throughout the different expansions but sometimes in different guilds. One of the goals of Origin was to bring people together after playing in different raiding teams over the last few years and use our knowledge and experience to build the best guild and raiding environment we can.
      Our roster contains experienced, driven and dedicated players with a strong focus on team work, and we expect anyone joining us for Mythic Raiding to share these qualities.

      We are a 2 day Mythic raiding guild as we value a good raid life balance. We do however, regularly run Mythic + Dungeons, Alt raids and have social fun on Discord. We have excellent results considering our light schedule, clearing 7/7 EN mythic by the end of November, and finishing Odyn post-Christmas in half a night.

      What Origin will offer you!

      • A guild where raiders aim to defeat all Legion (and beyond) content on the hardest difficulty
      • A stable, team centric raiding team
      • A guild that treats members with respect that welcomes thoughts, ideas, strategies and constructive criticism
      • A meritocracy in which contributions are recognized and rewarded (no favoritism)
      • A guild that fosters and encourages player growth and improvement
      • A strong community inside and outside of the game

      What do we need from you?

      A desire to:
      • complete all Legion (and beyond) content on the hardest difficulty
      • to be part of a team long term and progress on not only bosses, but as a guild and community
      • gain thorough knowledge about your chosen role and class
      • perform your chosen role and class to a very high standard
      • to evaluate your performance and improve and a willingness to accept constructive criticism
      • to excel during each boss encounter, showing good situational awareness and a strong learning curve
      AND importantly
      • ATTENDANCE! We maintain a relatively small raiding roster due to only raiding 2 days per week. This means you should be sure you are able to commit to our raid schedule.

      With the start of Nighthold, we would also require all trials to have at least 35 traits in their main artifact weapon, and preferably 40+.

      Our Raiding Hours

      There will never be pressure to raid additional days or stay for additional raid hours!

      Wednesday: 20:00 – 00:00 (Server)
      Sunday: 20:00 – 00:00 (Server)

      Application Process

      Our guild uses an application process. Applicants are required to complete our application form and submit it to the guild website. Your trial period will last approximately 4 weeks and applicants should maintain very high attendance during this period. We’ll have a small chat on Discord if we like your application and make sure you’re welcomed to the guild and get the information you need! As well as an opportunity for us to get to know you a little.
      Upon completing your trial period, if you fail your trial you will be offered the opportunity to stay as a social (if your personality fits within the guild) or you must unfortunately leave/be kicked. A player who passes will then be promoted to Raider. While on trial, you will receive loot when raiders do not require it.

      You can apply at our website: http://www.origin-draenor.eu

      Alternatively, for an informal chat, please contact Biscuinator#2177

      Thanks for reading, look forward to hearing from you.
      See you in game!

      About Us: <Over Raided> is a semi-hardcore raiding guild on US-Stormrage that was officially created in Mists of Pandaria. Our goal has always been to find the fine line between hardcore raiding and still having fun and enjoying each other’s company. We take our raids seriously and do not waste time, but that doesn’t stop us from joking around with one another during raid. We have a very friendly (note: we are not exactly family-friendly) atmosphere that has kept people around. One thing we are proud of as a guild is that we have a very low turnover rate and many loyal members who have stuck with us from the beginning. We are currently looking for people with similar goals who can attend raids consistently and who can meet the expectations required of mythic raiders.
      Expectations:
      Meet the attendance requirement Know your class - this means being able to play more than one spec at a mythic level Be able to communicate reliably and consistently when needed Have a stable internet connection Be willing to check forums once every few days Be prepared with raiding supplies - the guild bank supplies these but isn't meant to be relied upon Actually WANT to raid. If you're not having fun, don't bring other people down and just take a break Progression: 13/13M HFC, 7/7M EN, 1/3M TOV, 5/10H Nighthold
      Raid Schedule – Eastern Time (EST)
      Tuesday 7:30-10:30PM
      Wednesday 7:30-10:30PM
      Thursday 7:30-10:30PM
      Attendance Policy: Raiders must maintain 90% attendance at all times. Consistency in the raid roster is one of most important things in a mythic raiding guild. If you cannot commit to this attendance requirement, we are not the guild for you.
      How to apply: Go to our website at http://over-raided.enjin.com and review our guild policies on the top menu. After that, simply submit a private application form, which can also be found at the top menu. 
      Loot System: We use the EPGP Lootmaster addon to distribute loot.

      http://i.imgur.com/4y6HcUV.png[/img]     Valiant Vengeance was created about 7 years ago by the same leadership that is held today. We are a progression minded semi-hardcore guild who has raided since WoTLK. 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: 7/7M EN (Realm First) 2/3M ToV 8/10H NH   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 dps off spec as a bonus 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. VV is a strictly no drama guild and any of those who wish to start it are immediately removed. If you are seeking a friendly, fun guild to raid with and be competitive with in Legion, VV is the place for you!   For any questions please add me on Btag or apply on our Guildsite.

      <The Sleeping Knights> (Grizzly Hills/Lothar)is a new casual Alliance guild of experienced players who have been gaming together since 1999. We want to progress through content with mature players. We typically group up Friday and Saturday evenings and sometimes Sundays during the day and/or evening EST. We’re looking to fill raid slots to start EN for at least three dps, one back up tank, but definitely anyone is welcome. Also working toward Nighthold. We currently are progressing through mythic+7, and welcome more to join. We have experienced raid leaders and look forward to progressing through content. PVP players and alts are definitely welcome too. We use Discord for chat.
