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.

      I heard that with the new 4 set Shattering Strikes would be better than Runic Attunement but after simming my self its around 15-20K lower. I was wondering does simming take into account that the 4 set applies Razorice? If not then that'll make sense as to why SS is doing worse than RA. I dont have the 4 set yet I was just simming myself with it to see if SS was actually better with the 4 set.

      I have absolutely no idea what im doing wrong but I know I am. I am doing the average rotation trying not to munch procs but my damage is just not there.

      I feel like I should be performing better as a frost mage at my specific level. If some of you don't mind taking a look at my logs and letting me know what I could do to improve, it would help me out a lot. 
      A lot of people have told me once i get bracers and shard that my dps will normalize for my ilvl. Is this true? I follow the standard for frost mage st rotation: dont eat Ice-lance procs, don't waste insta flurries, spend flurries by frostbolt>flurry>Ice-lance, etc. If I am missing something, please let me know. 
      Here are some logs to look at.

      Been loosing to secret mages a lot lately. Anyway to counter them? The spells they have are annoying and they are able to kill of my big minions using fireball, polymorph etc. How do you counter them?
