Quote from ElsiaThat's intended. The pie chart shows how much of your total ticks are caused by what spells. The total will always be 100% (as long as there is data). But I can see how that is confusing, however it is consistent with all detail displays in Recount. The pie chart always gives a per-ability breakdown of a total and not an absolute value of all contributions organized in a pie chart which seems to be what you are expecting. In some cases there are identical. In this case what is confusing is that of course uptime can overlap and if one thinks of uptime in real game time then the total uptime used for the 100% here is not that value.
I submit that there is no sane way to do this to make your expectations (at least none I know) as a circle in a pie tends to represent 100% and there is no sensible way to get more than 100%, which would be needed for what you are expecting.
In short that pie chart is simply not meant to show uptime relative to game time, but internal percentage contribution to dot uptime. I think it's useful because you can see how many of the active ticks came from what spell, so if someone doesn't keep all the viable dots up their percentage breakdown will be skewed appropriately.
Alright, setting aside the pie chart, is there any other place in the add-on where Recount does / can show the uptime calculation that I'm looking for? I hope the request doesn't come across as petty but this is really the feedback that a raider needs - what % of the time was the DoT / HoT / buff / debuff / etc. actually up? To stick with the balance druid example, the expectation is to maintain as close to 100% uptime on each of the two dots as possible. I'd thought that maybe clicking the magnifying glass for details might reveal the information but I could not find it.
