It also occurs to me that if the lower reported dps is an artifact of combat lasting longer than normal, a test on Dr.Boom would be inconclusive as he would be a sustained combat scenario, as opposed to a trash mob scenario.
I'll still be testing out on him later to see what i come up with.
What class are you playing? The issues may be class specific? I sadly do not have any saved logs of previous fights to compare against current ones. But the decrease in reported dps is drastically different than pre 2.4 on my hunter. We are talking a 200dps difference in reported dps when farming. I'm not sure blizzard could get away with a stealth nerf that big (though stranger things have happend).
If i can help in any way by parsing logs or any other method, please instruct me on what you'd like me to do.
My hunter is also experiencing the quoted problems below.
My rogue and other rogues in my guild are also seeing largely lower dps numbers from the new recount. I also see rediculously low numbers from mage and warlock players who i know before did about 800dps now doing 400-500. Something goofy is going on with how dps is getting calculated.

Latest version for 2.4 is seriously bugged for Hunters. It shows things like 600 min damage for arcane shot and a max of 700 with an average of 325. On inspection after fIring a few arcanes, I found that is registering 2 shots for every one done. This is possibly because in the new combat log you get 2 lines. The first one says you have cast arcane shot, the second one says how much damage it did. It does the same thing for my pet's claw attack and Recount registers 2 for each one of them too.
Another thing that's bugged is that on my damage details when I mouse over them, it says my pet did 0% of my damage and one time it even said my pet was a healing Totem. This is when I have my and my pet's damage merged. It also does not calculate dps right any more. It keeps counting time after mobs are dead and the fight is over. The dps I am seeing on recount for my character is less than half what it was before the patch and the new version. I don't think it's accurate for any other class either because everyone in my Guild is now getting much lower dps figures.
Lastly, I really miss being able to look back at the last 5 fights. Please add that feature back in.
