I never got into looking at my DPS Stats and numbers. But I downloaded Recount recently and maybe this would help me do more DPS

I was very surprised to see how many glancing hits I have when I'm DPSing...any way of lessening the amount of glances?


heres my rig The World of Warcraft Armory (http://www.wowarmory.com/character-sheet.xml?r=Kirin+Tor&n=Brucimus)

No.

You cannot mitigate glancing blows in any way.

Do you think because this was against Void Reaver and he's metal I had some many Glances?

Glacing is 25% ona raid boss with 0 exceptions. There is no way to prevent this and there are no fights that use a different value.

Glancing blows happen when NPC is higher level than you and raid bosses are level 73.

Heroic strike?

Heroic strike not only turns your hit into a special attack, it also removes the chance to glance. Heroic strike adds a lot more damage then just what it says in the tooltip.

Yep, but HS stops your rage generation (from dmg dealt that is). And also has a threat cost attached to it (whihc from a DPS pov isn't desirable)

Heroic Strike still seems to be the best damage doing attack for me against Bosses and if rage is an issue i can switch to my fast offhand to help me generate faster smoother rage
