Just about every dps class watches the damage meters, either as self-evaluation or as a way to show off.
Recount can display a variety of information – damage, dps, healing, deaths, dispels, and many others. If you’re a dps class, what do you have your Recount (or damage meter of choice) set to display?
We have an interesting circumstance in my guild There is a mage who is always near the top of the meters with me. At the end of almost every boss fight, she led in dps, but I led in total damage done. The reason for this must be time on target. I am attacking more, but she is doing damage more rapidly when she attacks. This isn’t just once in a while – its like that on every boss fight, no matter how short or long, so there is a playstyle difference at work here.
Which is more important? I always display total damage done, because that’s what is important when it comes to killing the boss. Most others I know display dps, which seems to be more for e-peening.
What do you show on your Recount?
