seeing the offline TPS webpage based on a WWS parse gave me an idea about a kind of "rate my DPS skill" page that would bring you a result about the way you play your warrior. It could be usefull to know what has to be changed and improved to increase your DPS depending only on your skill. I don't know how to build this in html/xml or so, but I can write what I've got in mind :
- the use of cooldowned attacks (Bloodthirst / Mortal Strike and Whirlwind) : rate the fact that the attack is done as soon as possible or delayed due to many reasons
- the uptime of BattleShout and Rampage : always up or many downtime (especially Rampage that has to be refreshed during the main attacks cooldown) ?
- the use of Slam : just after a white hit or really delayed ?
- the use of Heroic Strike : to many HS leading to rage problems ? (delayed cooldowned attacks etc.)
It could also give informations about flurry uptime ("should I still raise my crit rating" etc.) and Rage generation on time ("Was I often wasting Rage - over 100 - or did I lack rage - often below 30 -" etc.
Does it sounds interesting or totally useless ?
That sounds like a good idea. Maybe you can get a web design savvy person to help you implement it.
41 pages of responses there and still nothing more from Blizzard beyond the laughable initial response of
Some warriors felt forced to pickup certain talents and this left them with few options. This change could allow people in these situations to have some extra options while the weapon expertise and threat reduction improvements to the deep end of the fury tree allow for more consistent sustained damage.
Does seem to be a bug, however using the old weapon skill stat you would get both +5 for swords and maces but they obviously didn't stack as they were different weapon types. Perhaps now they're all lumped under Expertise, you get both benefits from mace and swords as its the same type of skill rating. Would be a nice little buff.
While were on the topic, how much dodge and parry does a raid boss have? Is it worth stacking expertise in decent amounts?
