Is my recount broken or am I just bad...

Warrior
Ok before you start saying "yeah your bad" comments I would actually like some good feedback on what I'm doing wrong. On a testing dummy I only pull 25K DPS the boss dummies. The only thing is just before in 5.0.4 I did 36K and up. so I want to know is whats going on?!

And I would like to point out that when I tank I contribute a lot more DPS in the Heroics than all of my DPS and I'm not hit/exp cap yet. Just seems very weird that recount still shows 25K when we pull a lot more because of our gear.
Warriors got a few dmg nerfs in 5.0.5 because we were hitting like monsters. That's a rather silly drop however, I'd run a few more tests popping all CD's to see if it wasn't just awful luck or a botched rotation.

That's what I got when I popped everything :\

From the looks of it maybe its recount?....
I dont know whats wrong

I can burst over 100k on dummies

maybe bad rng?
The real question.. WHY THE *** are you using bladestorm for a single target rotation?
Idk bro, maybe everything was on CD and this guy is not a derp a tron so he put 2 GCDs of bladestorm in before his next BT. Man ... DPS can be hard when you try and maximize it.

Sarcastic blah blah aside, I doubt VERY MUCH that this was his intent and he probably plowed it full on, which is still not bad and can have it's place. BS does good single target damage as TG.

Because you do when you have bladestorm.
Bladestorm ticks hit harder than whirlwind, it's not the same move anymore.

@Dantendo - Your hit, expertise, and crit are all extremely low. This is why your damage sucks.

Really? I thought I was able to cap it. I got just over the new limit of 2550 on both. :\ Guess I just need to get better gear then?
Heroic strike is WAY to high on that list.
I don't see CS.
Where's wild strike?
Did you even read the sticky?

BT > blooodsurge > DR > CS > RB > WS

If you stick to this exact list, your damage will double.

Edit: Bind bloodbath to dragon road and berserker rage to everything.
I will confirm for all of you now that as of 7-28-2013 (That's when I first noticed) Recount has been broken. After spending 20 minutes on a Lvl 90 Target Dummy with my IL450 Fury Warrior I could only max out at 26k no matter what I did.

Further more, in a dungeon with my Mage, All five of us participants had different readings from Recount. I came in at 1st, 2nd, and 4th in DPS.

To my knowledge there is no update as of today, 8-2-2013 that will fix this issue. I am confident however that a solution will present itself soon.

If you are having issues believing the readings coming out of Recount you are most likely experiencing that which most of us have already noticed; Recount is indeed broken right now.
if you think your recount is broken you could always try updating it
