Re: Some help getting a better understanding.

A quick run-down on major buff gains and rake/rip casts: http://www.worldoflogs.com/reports/rt-0fdyjpjysh15keya/xe/?s=1518&e=1800&x=sourceName+%3D+%22Nekonasha%22%0D%0AAND+%28spell+in+%28%22Blades%22%2C+%22Re-Origination%22%2C+%22Dream+of+Cenarius%22%29%0D%0AOR+spell+in+%28%22Rake%22%2C+%22Rip%22%2C...

Re: Some help getting a better understanding.

You aren't very far behind me in ilvl honestly. I am looking at the closest to a patchwork single target fight this tier (Sha of Pride) on that fight you have good rip/ rake/and SR uptime. you aren't single target thrashing when you have extra energy which is a minor dps loss but more importantly y...

Re: Edgy/Raffy's Official Catus Thread

Possibly I can do this for next release. I try to avoid updating the version number frequently because I understand it's annoying to download updates all the time, and only try to push an update when there is a queue of changes and/or a serious bug. I agree automatic updating would make this transp...

Re: Edgy/Raffy's Official Catus Thread

Raffy have you considered splitting Catus into a a launcher jar and a "main files/library" jar so it would be capable of self-updating? Lately I've been simming a couple items after every raid and I seem to be spending much more time running, checking updates, downloading updates, extracting the upd...

Re: Class Balancing

Magnitudes are what kill healers. when ncoming heals are tiny because you havent been taking damage then grow a lot this is what I refer to as a tank spike. Bears and Dks have the biggest ones and this is why they arent the top choices for 25 man tanking. Dks are seen as tanks in progression races ...

Re: Class Balancing

If anything, Aggix's chart displays paladins to be much more spikey (since their spikes cover higher dtps) Uh? The paladin has a much higher average DTPS, but the oscillations are way smaller. Everything is mostly between 70k and 150k. The bear goes from periods of near zero damage up to 150k. For ...

Re: Class Balancing

I used to be a bear main so I know what you are talking about but the issue here is it is easier to heal a tank taking more damage that is less spikey than it is to heal a tank who over a fight will take less damage but is more spikey. Sustained tank damage shouldnt have killed a tank this entire e...

Re: Simulationcraft - Feral rotation discussion and script

Has anyone considered trying to change the order of Rip -> CP to CP -> Rip in the APL when Feral Rage is available for use (T16 4set)? It's mostly caused when rip and roar have synced durations and TF will expire sometime in the 0-6second-left window. I had this happen a lot last night and I couldn'...

Re: Class Balancing

I don't understand why they're doing something like this during the heroic race, they could've at least posted their intentions and put out a patch 2-3 weeks later with some proper reasoning. To me this buff doesn't really make any sense. Were undergeared druid doing badly? Were overgeared druids do...

Re: FoN vs SotF

I've yet to use it in raids (I've had to tank a bunch of fights due to conflicting raider schedules) so I'm purely speaking from what I've seen in sims: FoN is a decent DPS improvement over SotF on Patchwerk, which basically means it's the best choice in general. But that DPS isn't guaranteed and h...

Re: SoO - Norushen 3/14

Friendly guardians (Force of Nature) don't get damage reduction from corruption so if you're not going inside (heroic) you can probably squeeze out a bit of extra damage with it (we killed it 12 seconds to enrage).
