This Thread is about Dps Meters.
Which are you use? which is best for you?
I really like Skada cause it's simple and really fast
I also see Skada lowers Dps just a little,
so what's best?
You don't really like to use the word "is" and others like it, am I right?
This thread IS about DPS Meters.
My Brain IS corrupted by space.
Which ONE DO you use?
Which IS THE best for you?
Sorry but I just had to say that.
And what the hell is Skada? never heard of it. Doesn't sound that good if it shows different/lower numbers then Recount.
That really depends on how it defines the window of combat, and a damage meter isn't neccesarily better because it shows you with a higher number.Originally Posted by Nighty

Well thats true, but i always found recount to be pretty exact. If you want it totally right you should use a combat log parser. But thats only usefull for raids, i guess.Originally Posted by Darkwolfie
Well damn i never said my english was perfect. And this is one thing I always mess up. xDOriginally Posted by Darkwolfie
Don't take it the wrong way.
Recount has always been a good damage meter, complete and with lost of informations about your dps.
anyway Skada can do the same things, without using so much memory as recount does and is has a MINIMAP BUTTON :P
imho, Skada > Recount.
not meaning recount is bad, just skada does the same thing in less space. (is accurate, tried to run both of them simultaneously and got the same results)

Actually, Mr. Lennon, I CAN imagine a world with no hatred, religion, war, or violence.
I can also imagine attacking such a world, because they would never see it coming.
For once, Carville was a man ahead of his time.
Check your recount after a night of raiding.Originally Posted by Nighty
Ive used them both and ended up turning off recount just because I didnt like the UI vs recounts. The only thing I liked about skada is that you can look at the failbot counts for individual attempts.
The amount of memory an addon takes up doesn't mean shit. It's not gonna slow your PC or your game down. Unless you are running on some old piece of shit with just 512mb or 1gb of RAM.
Ha. You're right, stay with your obsolete damage meter. Just remember this discussion in 3 months, when you'll hop the train and switch to Skada.Originally Posted by Somnio
I remember seeing the same reactions when everyone was using DamageMeters and I told them I was using (unknown at this time) Recount.
DPS numbers are different, but Skada is closer to a combatlog parser (for instance Worldoflogs, which you probably don't know, as I guess you are still using the outdated wws) than Recount.
I'm not saying that Recount is a bad damage meter addon, just that Skada is more efficient, not only memory-wise.
Maybe someone who used it?Originally Posted by Somnio
there is a module to add failbot counts to recount...Originally Posted by faris1
Recount does a lot more than showing dps, looking at DPS is the last thing i use recount for.
meters irritate me
1) might just be recount in particular, but it doesn't take into account damage NOT done to the raid thanks to discipline priests
2) too many noobs (sorry i hate that word but this once it is applicable) have access to it. i was on my shaman alt in GNOMEREGAN and i kid you not, after every trash pull the hunter linked EVERYTHING, attacks done by who, to what, total damage, dps, who took damage etc after pretty much every pull, trash or 'boss' alike. obviously a kid so i didn't say anything but still, very very annoying
3) i saw a guy in a heroic laying down 3k dps (another serial linker), the only problem was that 9 times out of 10 it was before the tank could swing his sword, so this guy was wearing mobs every pull and he started calling the tank a noob.
maybe they should implement a hardcoded feature that only activates the thing when you're attacking a target dummy or in a raid group, but definately make a setting where raid lead is the one and only person who can link in any channel other than /w
you wanted the best? well they didn't make it. so here's what you get
