[Ret-PvE] Judgement crit % problem

Postby Loquerion » Fri Mar 27, 2009 6:48 am

So, I've been talking to some other ret pallies about my dps in Naxx. I'm very competitive with my guild, usually running in the top 5 overall, but compared to what I'm seeing reported in other places my DPS is crap. I posted a WWS from a recent Patch and Thadd takedown and one of the guys at Retpaladin noticed something that had escaped me. Unbuffed, I have 30% something chance to crit. Raid buffed, I generally hover around 35-37, depending on what buffs I have. However, on patch only 17% of my judgements critted and on Thadd only 25%.

If my crit % is 30 something, then shouldn't 30% of my judgements crit? I've browsed a lot of WWS reports and can't find a similarly geared retadin who has a lower crit % on their judgements. Since its our main damaging ability and I'm getting fewer crits I think that goes a long way to explaining why my dps seems low, but for the life of me I can't figure out why its low. Does the RNG just hate me?

wws counts the self damage as a unique judgment of blood. None of those will ever crit. So take judgments done and divide by two first.

I still only had 8 crits compared to other peoples 20 over similar time periods.

48 JoB's, half of them are self-damage. So you had 24 actual hits, 8 of which were crit. Still only 33%.

I have noticed that the percentage of crits over the course of even a fairly lengthy boss fight can vary significantly from week to week, and from pally to pally. I've been out-critted (and thus outDPSed) by a much less-geared Ret pally before. It really is random.

Ahhhhh, my math was *way* off on that. A 33% crit rate is definitely in the realm of acceptable. I guess its back to group makeup then, I'll bug management to play with groups a little and see if I can do better with more buffs.

BTW, if you want to talk highly RNG-variable specs, try playing a Frostfire mage :P
