Hey trying to workout if some of the dots are more DPS than combo moves etc, but its hard to figure out their exact damage, obviously potency is based of weapon damage/attack power. seems basically potency its just its multipler, 100 would be 1:1 150 potency would be 1:1.5.

My 100 potency attack hit for about 35 and my 10 potency dot ticked for 3-4 damage per tick.

All the dots seem to be factors of 3, does anybody know for certain that dot ticks are every 3 seconds?

dots seems rather weak and useless at the moment , and I really was wondering if 20 potency dot was 20 for full duration or for each tick, when its ticking for 1-2 damage it feels like its 20 potency totally, but that doesnt make sense, who would use 100+20 instead of say general 150 attack that is instant

nah if it was over the whole dot my dot would have ticked for like 1, since it was 3-4 it has to be potency per tick.

although that would mean venomous bite does 310 potency total after its initial hit and 35 potency for each of its 6 ticks.

think ill just have to do more testing and count ticks, dmg etc.

Is there a way to log to disk what the combat numbers are?

WOAH WOAH WOAH......watch out guys...you're going all "elitist"

Some people on these forums will take offense at your calculations in order to maximize your DPS.

And they can't have that....tunnel vision you know.

I think one of the problems might be that there is no "real dot class" out at the moment. Conjurer doesn't seem to be it, from what I've seen.

Lets all wait for arcanist (later summoner or scribe) and see how his dots are. His main damage type is supposed to be dots, afaik.

Any graphical, audio, or gameplay restrictions not seen in other mmos but found in FFXIV can be blamed on one thing.
