Thok Woes, WoL is Crap

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.

      Hi all,
      Im not sure where to post this but im hoping someone can help or at least point me in the right direction.
      TL;DR - My DPS is awful and i want to increase it
      I played fire & frost spec back in cata upto 85 and have recently got back into WoW again and finally realised what people talk about when they play "end game" i wish id known about raiding sooner!
      However, My DPS isnt great at all im eq 959 ilvl but my DPS comes out as low as 8-900 sometimes or i can hold a steady 1.1-1.2M. Simc comes out around 1.7M (obviously in a perfect world) but i still feel im doing something wrong.
      Ive watched videos, read forums and im sure my rotation is right. Im using Flask, Food and Runes and Pre-potting. I have some logs here of garothi.
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/XRqCaL6jFVpW9MnG#fight=5&type=summary&source=23&view=events
      and this is my Raider.io - https://raider.io/characters/eu/twisting-nether/Buksh
      Not sure if ive posted this in the right place OR if ive given enough info to help. but anything would be hugely appreciated.
