Thok Woes, WoL is Crap

7 posts in this topic

WoL support forums are useless.

Anyone happen to understand why sometimes World of Logs completely ignores our Water Elemental or assigns it to another mage? It doesn't happen with hunter or warlock pets.

My parse should be about 50k higher than what it was on our 1st Heroic Thok kill:

WE's dmg: http://worldoflogs.com/reports/rt-fp.../?s=880&e=1387

So I should've been 335186.3 DPS(e)

/sigh


PS: Kenbud and Pete still beat me! I f'in hate Thok. But I coined the ring and nobody wanted the off-hand, so it was a good night for my ilvls. Our strategy is awful, using 4 warlock gates, constantly having to move!

The only thing I can think of is, that all hunter and warlock pets have unique names, while Water elemental is just Water elemental for all mages.

 

With programming mind it could definitely mean problem. Although I am not sure if the pets have a specified ID that can link them to their owners. If it's only their name that links, then the reason must be the one I mentioned above.

 

In this case, you might want to try and glyph your elemental with a skin change change. Just makke it different from the other mage's pet somehow. This might be a very noobish idea, but it might work.

The other mages are fire.

I think we've discovered why fire mages rank higher, lol.

That is honestly part of why frost looks bad on raidbots.

 

I am not the only one. There are thousands of frost mages right now who are not getting credit for their WE.

 

My WE does ~50k dps, so that's pretty substantial.

Try summoning your Water Elemental after the fight starts so the log sees you casting it. It's annoying that you may need to do that until they fix it, but it'll at least help you with the ranks.

Yeaaa, I may have not checked that part. I have no other idas at the moment, I'll think about it. but I am pretty sure it's somehow related to either WoL, or Blizzard combatlogging system.

      Hey there!
      I've recently started playing a mage, and I feel like my performance is a little below where it should be right now... I feel like I have the basics of the fire rotation down, but I really want to make any improvements that I can.. I don't really know where i'm going wrong, or what i'm doing that is causing a gap in numbers between me and similarly geared players. I have a log from a normal Xavius fight from earlier, maybe someone could take a look at it and point out any mistakes or give a few pointers?
      Thanks for your time!

      Hello, so I started playing DK at the launch of legion, and have enjoyed it so far. I was initially unholy but then changed to frost recently, and am enjoying both specs except for one thing, namely my performance. So there are three frost DK's in my raid and lately the other two are always towards the top of the meter while I'm towards the bottom. There is no large gear difference (I think they both have a couple ilvls on me, but I have the legendary belt), so I was wondering what I was doing wrong. Upon looking at logs I found they both casted significantly more spells than me on all fronts (FS, obliterate, etc.). I also noticed that I need to keep icy talons up more, but can someone tell me why I'm casting so many fewer spells than them (there is no large haste difference, the armory has us all at 30something% haste, even though one of them (Hungerghost) and I only have 20something, and I'm sure the same applies to the other DK), or if there is some other problem, then what is it and how can I fix it? Thanks.
      (will update these links if they're not working (I got an SSL error))

      So I got into a dungeon (Mana Tombs) with a level 71 Frost DK, and this guy was doing some absurd damage 1 shotting everything in his path.
      Was just wondering if anyone could possibly tell me how this guy was doing so much damage at this level
