I just got rid of Damage Meters after they were doing something odd with the 1.12 patch with the syncing. I found a fixed version, but that made me think: which other damage meter mods are out there, and how do they stack up? I figure people in high-end PvE content do a lot of parsing to see what works and what doesn't, and would thus try different damage meter mods to compare them. I'm interested in hearing what you all think.
SWStats. I was skeptical about downloading it for a while since I wasn't unhappy with DM and Recap, but everyone was raving about it so I gave it a try; now I rave about it too. I've heard about the new DM being very awesome for analytical stuff, some say better than SW, but at this point I'm so happy with SWStats that I couldn't really see myself changing. Then again, that's what I said before I tried SWStats, so who knows ;>
Swstats is god for in-game. I use a combination of line-strippers and either manual stepping.grepping (I know, it suits me though) or force-feeding recap.
To be quite honest, I've not seen a fight I can't deconstruct from the sw live+ combat log later. Recap with the changed combat log range is also a nice post-mortem indeed though but frankly, ... well, let's leave it at that. Sometimes more information is only just that.
how do i increase the combat log range? Ive just recently started using the /combatlog command and a longer range would be great.
edit: nvm found it in the bigwigs thread
/console SET CombatLogRangePartyPet "150"
/console SET CombatLogRangeFriendlyPlayers "150"
/console SET CombatLogRangeFriendlyPlayersPets "150"
/console SET CombatLogRangeHostilePlayers "150"
/console SET CombatLogRangeHostilePlayersPets "150"
/console SET CombatLogRangeCreature "150"
on topic, i use swstats, becuase everyone else does, damage meters was working fine for me tho. this is just more complex to set up without any major benifits for your average joe.
I use SW Stats, but I find it a little bit buggy and such. DamageMeters are my favorite, but seeing as few in my guild uses it, I'm stuck on SW Stats. I use an unsynced version of recap for checking skills, highest crits and such.
Kombat Stats, for my own number of swings, how many glancing blows, procs on poisons etc etc.
