Coming in and saying "I'm taking a complete guess, 500 is a nice round number. Yeah my dps is probably 500 less than before. Please fix." won't have you taken seriously anywhere.
Iskath's Experiment is a good test mob for monks.
There are (or at least there were, pre-2.5) a couple known parse mobs that I used to compare various weapon setups, different classes under different circumstances, various buff effects, etc. but they are basically closely-guarded secrets because every time a similar mob became public knowledge, the devs broke it or removed it from the game. For whatever reason the people running this server don't like players being able to actually check things themselves. In all the years of me asking for target dummies or official parse mobs of some sort, the ONLY time I ever actually got a real parse mob was when Slaar was implementing the combo system and he asked in ooc for bored monks. I got to attack a thing for about 5 minutes and was supposed to give him feedback on half a dozen new combos based on that lol.Need parsing mobs (and hate generation) freely available and not something that requires individual dev attention.
its been almost 2 months now really and no. the only response from slaar is "it looks right". monks went from king dick melee dps to the little abortion that they are now.It's been about a month, has anyone heard any discussion about addressing barefist damage? I've seen it brought up in OOC a couple of times, first with Taryth telling us to ask Slaar, then Slaar reporting twice that 'The code looks right'. I understand they were busy with many other more crippling bugs, and I appreciate the steady progress on fixes.
Looking at my parses, it seems that I hit as fast (maybe even a little faster) as in 2.0 but my average damage per hit has dropped from 140s - 150s to sub 100.
