[General] Guide to Analyzing Snapshotting on WCL

Alrighty guys lots of people seem to be confused with WCL, and for good reason. When you provide advanced analysis tools without a guide, it can be tough and intimidating to figure out.

 

The goal is to get you all to a screen that looks like this, which means understanding pins! So this is the first step to some crazy WCL analysis: Enjoy!

So to explain how I got there, I put together this very hastily, poorly drawn guide for how to analyze snapshotting on WCL in a more advanced way.

 

This also proves people need to just leave WoL in the past, stop using it already!

If you have any questions or problems (you WILL have problems, just click stuff and figure it out!) be sure to let me know and I'll help you as best I can.

 

Happy snapshotting! (btw, Drjayfisto is the best I've ever seen at it, that's why I'm showing you his logs!)

Could've just used my logs ;_;

 

I'm sad to see this has passed by relatively unnoticed, considering the large amount of questions we get about snapshotting. By following this guide you actually visit a large amount of practical and powerful options to analyse your performance.

You can unsticky this now since we've more or less confirmed that there's no real need to go through the effort of snapshotting. Yay for improved math!

The real value of this guideis showing how pins are used.

I consider it to be really educational <3

Very true, actually. Let's make it better then once WCL releases their next update. Just in time for 6.0 when people will really want to analyze stuff!

      Hi everyone. I just killed HC Varimathras and I was surprised by my low damage. There was not second time warp because we used the first one at 20% HP but I think I should get higher numbers. Can anyone tell me what did I do wrong? Was it really only in TW? I do not think so :/.

      I have a question for Arcane mages that I couldn't find existing guides mention on any website. In dungeons, mana is not typically an issue as a healer because you can just drink/eat in between packs, I mained a healer up until now so that mindset is just ingrained in me. As Arcane Mage, would the same principle apply? Is it optimal to just forgo the conserve part of the rotation and just burn as much as you sustainably can with every  pack, since you can just eat conjured food in between packs, or should you still do conserve/burn phases similar to what you'd do in a raid?
      Thanks.

      hello, so i am following this deck - https://www.icy-veins.com/hearthstone/elemental-mage-deck and i was wondering which card i should buy next and i dont have much dust left. I need the following cards
      Primordial Glyph x2
      Pyros x1
      Arcane Keysmith x2
      Blazecaller x2
      Frost Lich Jaina x1
       
      I have 1945 dust left with the option to disenchant "Archmage Arugal" with a total of 2345, because i dont use it, nor do i know if its any good?
       
       
      I can either go with x2 Primordial as the guide says this is needed for the deck + x2 Blazecaller for late and x1 Arcane Keysmith? but then  i wont have the pyros for early or Jaina for late.
       
      Or i can go balls out buying x1 Frost lich jaina and x1 primordial glyph ? / Or just Pyros and x1 Primordial. I dont know.
       
      My last scenario is buying Frost lich jaina and x1 primordial by selling some rare cards, then use "Archmage Arugal" instead of Pyros for the time being and combo it up with AI for 2 extra cards, and hope its something good.
       
       
       
      any help is grately appreciated.

      Hey everyone - I'm coming back to WOW after a 3 year break and I'm leveling a mage (fire lvl 33) - something I wanted to do before leaving.  I have read the articles on the addon but is that it?  I'm curious  what addons do you use for leveling, mobs, dungeons, etc...
      thanks

      Hello,
      The Sworn is recruiting range DPS & Tank. We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 7/11 Mythic Antorus. We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 9:15 PM until 12:15 AM Eastern. Currently, our main goal is to push Mythic progression & finish out the raid before next patch, please keep this in mind if you wish to join us, because we will not be doing Heroic or anything like that.
      From you, we would expect 100% attendance during your trial period; after that if you cannot make a raid or will be late it is mandatory to keep the raid leader updated. In order to continue making good progression while raiding only two nights a week, we expect that you know your class inside-out and will research any bosses you are unfamiliar with prior to raids.
      As far as classes are concerned, at this time, we do not have ANY rogues, DPS warriors, havoc DH, or wind walkers.
      If you are interested, add me to battle tag and we will talk (violentravi#1826), I will accept mostly anyone who wants to be a bench or casual, but for raiding purposes, you must be able to provide logs.  If you cannot get ahold of me in game, I work nights, please shoot me an email, I check it at work often and I can get ahold of other officers via text/discord if it's urgent! violentnacho@gmail.com
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo
