1/2 a second.. ouch...

I was spamming holy shield as fast as humanly possible tonight on yet another prince kill but after looking at the log to see how the dps was doing I noticed something that caught my eye. From 09.750 untill 10.250 (1/2 second) the bastard got in his thrash ability.

Also I find it odd as hell that how holy shield goes down, yet I still fail to cast it while spamming. Would adding a /stopcasting help with that for my holy shield button? We still killed him and all but this could have been bad, I've been triple crushed by him before because of screwing up while trying to reposition in phase 2 and it could of happened again even with perfect infernal placements tonight.

Anyways heres the log. (not too long)

That would indicate that he used up all your charges on HS.

Worst luck ever was when I was just about to re-cast Holy Shield and then lagged ever so slightly, and he got in Thrash on Phase 2 for 3 crushes.....17k dmg hai.

Bad times btw your signature is huge.

Yes, http://www.wowarmory.com/character-shee ... an&n=Elson

I wear a bit more dodge/block value for that fight as well so It was just really bad luck I guess. We wiped our first attempt due to bad infernal placement and there was a point in time where I dodged, parried, or was missed like 12+ times in a row while almost dead when we only had one healer left alive who was oom.

I guess the log I showed is just the opposite extreme of wearing avoidance gear. It just never occurred to me that with 8 holy shield charges and close to 50% combined chance to be missed, dodge, or parry that he would burn through that many.

Alternately it could be simply related to lag as some messages are reported before/after their actual occurance. If his holy shield cooldown being ready was not reported by the server until 10.200 for example, he would not have been able to activate HS client side.

I have seen many instances where I got a 10% durability loss before I died.

A good way to tell if it was indeed holy shield was down or simply lag would be to see how many times he blocked between when HS was up and when it faded (making sure to find corresponding HS dmg or resists). If there were like 4 blocks, then it was probably lag. If there were 7-8, then it was probably charge eating.
