When I was using the dual 1.3 speed daggers I did nothing but stand there and auto-attack for the entire hour with a feral druid next to me for LotP healing.
For the 10 minute test with my regular swords and haste gear, I used sinister strike, slice and dice, and rupture (1s/5r cycle) for the entire time (aside from some eviscerates when combat potency went off like crazy and accelerated my cycle).
I don't have the combat log anymore, but I'd be more than happy to conduct the test again and PM you the log file. I wasn't quite sure whether to use two 1.3 speed daggers or the 2.3 speed vendor swords for testing, so if you'd prefer I conducted it under certain specific conditions, just let me know.
Not a problem. Thank you for all the work you do for the community.
I definitely noticed the proc refresh itself once in a while during the test. Unfortunately, these are not counted by ProcWatch and not reflected in the combat log unless you look for instances of Forceful Strike which last for longer than 10 seconds.
Here are my results for testing with two 2.3 speed vendor-bought scimitars, strictly auto-attacking, no haste gear equipped, over a 60 minute period:
So, with the 2.3 speed weapons, it's extremely close to 1 PPM. Throw in the fact that the ProcWatches at 1.3 and 2.3 put forth very similar PPM numbers, I have no problem with labeling this as a 1 PPM proc.
9) What about Drakefist Hammer/Dragonmaw/Dragonstrike?
Dragonstrike sitting in my bank, I'll whack away at a servant for a half hour or so and upload my logs for you. What would be the best way to do this? Just white attack the entire duration? and search for "You gain Haste."?(for Procwatch anyway)
Take off your OH, and white atttack something for a while.
Ideally, make use of the buff-canceling macro that appeared earlier in this thread to cancel haste as soon as you get it. If you don't feel like messing with it, that's fine too.
In the former case (i.e., with the buff-canceling macro used) it would be sufficient to see just the total number of attacks and the number of haste procs. In the latter case I would want to see a /combatlog so I can work out the details of overlapping procs.
I am in a guild that has Gruul and Void Reaver on farm and is starting to learn SSC. (I mention this so everyone has an idea of what loot my guild has available to us.)
I am always looking for the best way for everyone to maximize their potential. I read something on this forum that makes me pose the question about sword spec for rogues... How does sword spec really work?
From my understanding, when it procs, the rogue gets one extra, instant attack that is equivalent to a white damage swing and has the same chance to crit as the rogue's normal white damage. The swing does not reset the swing timer.
Now, here is the question... Which weapon does the extra swing occur with?
Assume that the rogue has a sword in each hand. I was under the impression that if the OH weapon procced the swing then it was an extra OH attack, and if the MH weapon procced the swing then it was an extra MH attack.
Is this correct? I read something here just today that made me think that I might be wrong.
To be perfectly honest I do not know where or how to find out this information on my own. Thank you in advance for your help.
To the best of my knowledge, all extra attacks proc a Mainhand attack.
Yes, that is the accepted theory, and is rather easily proven by looking at logs. You will see the extra attack message, then the OH swing for 300ish and the MH swing for 800ish (that is with my gear).
However can we keep the rest of the thread for actual testing and maths please?
EDIT: bah, missed the 5th page, seems others beat me to answering
