DPS recount meters accurate?

General Discussion
I got good gear for my level and I pull big numbers, I know I do. Yet for some reason I'm almost always 3rd or 4th on those recount lists people post while in dungeons, regardless of how hard I push my poor widdle arcane mage.

I think the recount thingy is broken...or it's mage biased.
Or you're just doing less damage/dps than the other members are.

You're spamming the wrong button.

But obvious troll.
They tend to be more inaccurate for pet classes as the pets damage is not always added into the owner's damage to make a total correct amount. I have that problem at times. Most pet class toons with a DPS recount running are more correct than those who dont, so ive seen.
On my arcane mage i know tricks to getting a big dps number, but my damage totals don't very that much.

I look at total dmg done under the boss logs now, it paints a more balanced picture.

I think it's mostly that you haven't realized that you're a warlock, not an arcane mage.

I'm not surprised that you're usually the lowest DPS in the group when you don't even know your class.
do you have recount set to overall or current fight?

Last I checked Warlocks were Top DPS/Damage in raids.. And really that's all that matters..

A lot has happened since Burning Crusade, might want to check again...

Break it up guys! Let's just focus on the arcane mage being 4th DPS.
