    A tank can't possibly do that much damage because it's a tank and everyone knows tank DPS is terrible. Therefore, all parses with tanks high on the list are either faked or it's from a guild that has terrible DPS. Or is it the other way around? Yeah, that's it, if tanks are on the bottom of the parse they're not trying! Or... wait... meh, what does it matter, all parses are invalid because they don't agree with my personal agenda!

    Mages have pets.

    I think I covered the formula for posting in this thread pretty well.

    Really, though, it was dropped out of the first one or two slots at the top of the board, so, you're welcome. Bumped before the lock!

    So using your numbers, let's say Drogba gets 6 mill from the HT, 2 mill from the thought leech, 1 mill from carmine blade, 500k from tvyls, 500k from reflexive rancor. Generous enough? Let me know if you disagree.

    Let's remove that 10 million damage from both of Drogba's parses entirely.
    (Pretending major abilities don't exist is always key for fair parsing!)

    Still puts him at #1 on the 5 min parse with 37.8 mill dmg, wizard at 36 mill for #2.

    Puts him at #2 on the burst with 7.2 mill, monk at #1 with 8 mill.

    Great, a pure DPS just won by 10% on burst to a tank, and lost by 5% on the 5 min parse.

    Then again, we removed two 10-min re-use abilities from the tank since it "skews burst".
    So we should remove one 5-min re-use from the monk to be fair. Crane stance damage skews burst.
    Remove 1 mill from crane (even though it hits for 2 mill+) and the monk loses on burst too.

    I'm sure there was a mana burn in there somewhere too, which is the longest re-use out of everything we mentioned. I won't get into that though bc I don't know much about wizarding.

    It already does more than that. Unfortunately, the damage is about the same as it was in RoF.

    Happy Holidays.

    Oh and did you miss the 10 min raid parse where the SK was not tanking?

    I say we find Ashten and ask him, that Sikanle is a sketchy character....just saying :p
  6. Sikanle Lorekeeper


    Ask him, he will tell you that my SK smokes both of us when we play together and he is just as upset about it.

    We've been sharing burns and raiding together for years now, not going to find a gap in DPS between us.

    Going to state the obvious, 36mil dmg for a wizard over 5mins is weak.

    Two completely different raids most likely, so you cannot make extrapolation between the two. Also most likely not same ADPS support, warriors not at same EoK DPS AA count.

    I think we now have a few tanks reaching for anything to try to not get nerfed.
