So...I was looking at something at TMR that got me thinking. I was criticizing some player who was looking for advice about his low uptime, particularly on Bale. Then I got to looking at the top logs for Bale and was shocked to see that most are in the 90-95% range, while I am not getting logged when I have 98% uptime. So, do you think there could be a point at which higher uptime is worse? I'm going to try changing my priorities to only refreshing at the end of eclipse when there is less than 8s as opposed to 10s and see how it pans out.
I dunno, since I'm not sure how to gauge 25m DPS. Basically, your guild's middle range is our high range for baleroc (and with your last parse, if you did that on 10m you definitely would have ranked).
fake edit: what's weird is that looking at the rankings for 10 and 25, the 10m #1 is actually higher than the 25m #1, but the 25m rankings have a much narrower range and a higher average. I don't know if that's just a result of fewer people doing 10s, or if those really high people are super geared out peeps doing 10s for the meta achievement or something else. But this is kind of tangential to the topic.
But yeah, my uptimes for that fight also sit right around 90-92%. That that I do amazing, rank-worthy DPS on that fight or anything.
So, do you think there could be a point at which higher uptime is worse?
I'd say it's just that you're getting into the realm where the GCDs used to put up those dots are holding you back instead of giving you more DPS. It's not the uptime itself, the high uptime is just a consequence of what is actually hurting you (potentially).
