Dps meter

I’ve been using recount for a while now. Needed it for lfr on horde side as with them being angry so-and-so’s if you weren’t pulling enough dps you were yelled at…
WHAT THE FUCK! KICK THE NOOBS
IF YOU CAN’T DPS GET THE FUCK OUT
IF YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT YOU’RE DOING, LEAVE
and so on.
Pretty much if you weren’t on the first page your lfr time was in jeopardy.

When I joined The Royal Jesters and then played back up for them in a 25man Council boss kill I had recount going, I wanted to check how woeful my damage dealing was. It looked poor. We had some of the RT1 players in with us on alts so it probably looked worse than it was. My meter showed that I was doing about 67… I felt poop.

I got a whisper a few days later from Mac, she told me that there was a conversation between her, the RT1 leader and one other of the RT2 members. When she said they were asking who the new hunter was I just thought ‘shit, I’m doomed’ but then she said that the RT1 leader was impressed as I’d been pulling 90…

I was, well, confused. ‘Have they been looking at something else? Recount only showed 67?’ Mac then introduced me to Skada. ‘It’s what RT1 use so it must be more accurate’ I downloaded it and went to the training dummies outside the vendors hall in The Shrine, set myself up and pulled out everything I do in raids. Off the bat I was doing 100+, after doing sone targeting pauses etc to try and recreate a raid it settled down to 92. I’m no pro by a long shot but for someone who is strutting around in raid finder gear (two of them from mid range lfr) and a couple of bits of Shadow-Pan Assault items that can’t be that bad.

What I don’t understand is the near 30 difference between the two counts.

I’m not going to look a gift horse in the mouth though, if the pro thought it impressive I’m just going to keep Skada and be a tiny bit smug.
