Thanks for the sanity check on the GCD and clearing up the information about the misery % bonus working whether or not misery is up.
Just a last couple sanity checks if you don't mind :) :)
I looked at a recent fight against razorscale. I brought my treants out once and it looks like they did 58K damage. I assume that means that the DPS contribution from treants ~= 58000/360=~322DPS. A 15% buff to this from Brambles would be 58DPS.
My sustained/burst scores are basically the same and are 4544. I removed improved FF from my spec (left misery in the buff section) and this dropped me to 4471 (73 point drop - presumably from the crit loss). I then added 3/3 brambles and it increased me
to 4502 (29DPS).
Is my math off on the treants?
Q1: What is the DPS contribution from treants (assuming that they live the whole time)?
Q2: Is it safe to assume that the RAWR calculations do not take into consideration the increased DPS due to thorns (i.e. the assumption is that you are not being hit -- so the DPS boost that is gained for this actually goes to your tank(s). I was trying
to get a sense as to how much the DPS bonus is (i.e. if it costs me 20 DPS to boost 2-3 other people +10DPS then it is a good spec choice), but I was having a hard time figuring out how much DPS thorns (w/ or w/o brambles) was putting out.
