Hey guys, the raid i'm joining in with is having trouble with patch25. I know that he chooses the highest HP out of the 2nd and 3rd member on the aggro table to do HS to but we have alot of dps memebers that are insisting they need to dip in the slime to reduce their HP so they wont get hit. I need an addon that parses the combat log per fight to see who dies when and why but i have no idea what i'm looking for. any help would be greatly appreciated.
If your melee runs in early and gets on the aggro list before the tanks and before the first hateful strike, they will get one-shot. Else they are pretty much safe until a tank dies. Then the highest aggro holder (not HP holder) will get hit.
You don't really need an addon for this other than any threat meter.
Also there are a few addons that track deaths and reasons for death like acheron, expiration or Recount/RecountDeathTrack.
If you want to write a new addon that does this, check out any of these. The combat log code in Recount is found in tracker.lua.
That's the thing.. i know exactly how hateful works however everyone else is believing all the dumb things, i just need something i can show them to point out that we are wiping cos the tanks are dying and not because the melee dps are too high on hp.
thought there might of been something i could use but no problem, i'll figure something out. cheers
start the encounter with only 1 melee in range, at full health and only auto attacking. This should put him near last on the threat table. According to the mechanics stated that means that only the tanks will be hit period.
Recount can then show and prove that when the 3rd or 2nd tank dies, only then do the melee get hit at all.
