7 posts in this topic

Hi , a guild member just upgraded his path to lvl 48 and his dps/s went down like 500+ , can anyone confirm this? Is it a bug? He's ranger scout

Did he activate his path? Figure he used a potential potion and forgot to reactivate.

I have similiar problem.  Went down with dps since i changed sets from manaflame to gorhana (3 items).  I lost dps from 6.5k to 5.5k. No idea how is it possible since in mean time i invested alot for gems with crit as also eq reforging.  I gained like 40 more dmg and 15% more crit (charr stats not mentioning gorhana)  and also im either scout.  Was path lvl 45 or 46 when that happend (about 5 days till now)   Im getting rly crazy cause im getting  better and better stats and im still doing 5.5k dps.  This is ridicolous. Unfortunatelly i sold my manaflame set after replacing to gorhana (thought i dont need it)  now im confused and angry.  If anyone knows the answer i would be glad. Now im trying to get back manaflame.  Perhaps gorhana set is bugged and makes that crappy dps.  I need to figure out. Someone help me with that pls. 

Best regards,

Tewk.

Could be stats on the equipment. Did anything change? crit, dmg, main stat can all have a big affect on damage. Personally for me, I'm at 50% magic crit and my dps has gone up a ton over just adding INT to an armor.

Gorg isn't as big a DPS boost as you expect. It's 40% uptime and a bad RNG run in that 6 seconds is going to "lose" you some DPS.

 

Napkin math it: 40% of 10% crit is 4% overall crit. Manaflame has a ICD of 15ish seconds too. If the extra hit from your 4% crit boost doesn't outweigh manaflame procs (esp AoE fights), you will lose DPS surely.

 

Stats also come into play when switching gear.

Agility = dmg for rangers.

If you've lost some that could be it. Also make sure your rotation is right.
