View Full Version : Tanking Trying to get better at dissecting WoL reports...

04-25-2011, 08:32 AM
Thanks for weighing in on my last post. Jumping in head first in to a new role, I find myself wanting to pour over any info I can find to try and assess my performance as a tank in raids. Trouble is, I'm not quite sure what I should be looking for/at on the WoL reports from our runs. For those in the know, what type of info would you glean from a report like I'm attaching? What type of stuff should I be keeping an eye out for in these reports? I'm hoping I'll be able to stop with the noon questions very quickly. Just gotta get comfortable with my self assessment.

I guess depending which tank You are.

Check Your buff uptimes:
Go to Buffs Gained and click on # on which spells You want to see uptimes.
Example Horn of Winter / Battle Shout have to be up all time.
Blade Barrier (for DK) should be as close as possible to 100% etc.

Debuf Uptimes:
Go to Buffs gained but check Debufs with # as its on boss.
Example Thunderclap, Scarlet Fever etc.

So basically choose your desired kill/wipe then from drop-down Players->Class->Player
And check like
"Damage by Spell" where You can check miss / parry / dodge / apsorb
"Buffs Gained" to improve Your + other Player spell Buff uptime
"Buffs cast" only Your buff casts

Plus You can take from drop-down Creatures ->Boss
and check buffs debuffs on Boss.
