Thok Woes, WoL is Crap

Recommended Posts

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:

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

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.

      Hi everyone. So I've read the guide on fire mage here on Icy-veins and got some questions related to single target rotation. First I'd like to ask about the meteor. It is mentioned that meteor should be used with Rune of Power which is fairly easy to do since Rune of Power is always ready when Metor is off cooldown. However It's also mentioned that Meteor should always be available when Combustion comes off cooldown. Now Combustion has a 2 min cooldown and meteor has 45 sec cooldown. I can use meteor twice while Combustion is on cooldown. However If I use Meteor twice , It is on cooldown when Combustion is ready. Should I wait for Combustion and not cast Meteor on the second time until Combustion is ready?
      Second what I'd like to ask is about Combustion after the opener. Its mentioned that I need a hot streak before I pop It. I fish for Pyros by casting Fireball until I get a crit and then use Fire Blast. However when I get an Hot streak I'm already mid-casting Fireball. Should I cancel the cast and cast Rune of Power or should I let that Fireball hit and immediately after start casting Rune of Power?
      It's also mentioned that I need to have a Fire Blast charge always ready before going in Combustion phase. Should I save up a charge and ignore the Heating Ups I get regardless and hope for Fireball to crit twice or basically wait for Fire Blast to get another charge?
      Thanks 🙂
