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.

      I usually sim my characters to get the best possible results. I enjoy the process quite a lot and since I reached 120, I wanted to find out the best build of the spec. (Note, I didn't want to find out what to play, but rather how my own build fares in comarison.) I rarely mind a 1-2% difference. If it goes above 2%, I really mind a change. What this thread is about is mainly to bring something in the attention of those who help making the class guides, especially the talent choices. To my surprise, I was awed to find out that certain talents outperform previous "Standard" choices in the endgame, probably due to the stat squish.

      The Frost go-to build (top dps) would probably be along the lines of <Icy Talons / Cold Heart - Runic Attenuation - Frozen Pulse - Gathering Storm - Breath of Sindragosa>. What I found out primarily was that after the removal of legendaries, Cold Heart severely underperforms at most given situations resulting in a major dps drop due to the low mastery. Gathering Storm also suffers from the same problem and most of the times, Frostwyrm's Fury is better overall. The biggest surprise of them all, however, was that Inexorable Assault overperforms quite a lot, and is the first reason why I made the topic. I then started simming with the above in mind and I came across a build that some would not consider on par with top dog builds around the meta, which is the use of Horn of Winter which overperforms both its other two options when using the Breath build. Talent Sim can be seen here. Another intresting thing, which I loved, was that the 2nd best build uses Obliteration as a lvl 100 talent and no other build surpassed it (Other than the first one, obviously). So, I encourage frost players out there to give their other, less common talents a try. To the class guide author(s), I believe that the two "underdog" talents will earn their spot in the class guides.

      Thank you for your time reading this.
