View Full Forums : DoT Crit AA's

Ok, I don't remember any DoT crit AA's from TSS but I see now that it lists 6 levels with the new AA tabs. Of which I have 3/6.

Are these new AA levels?

4, 5, and 6 were not supposed to go live until the next expansion. I think they're being taken away and refunded in the next patch.

1, 2, and 3 were Blood Tithe from the TSS expansion.

Well since I had the extra aa's to spend, I bought them. Zero difference in actual dot critting, so I'd go along with the "they aren't active" yet scenario.

Returning Druid here... Quit just after DoDh.

On the subject of DoT Crits, I seem to remember actually getting a crit message for them, but I have not really seen any crit messages other than DD Crits since I've returned. This made me think that my DoT Crits were broken until I went all squinty eyed one evening trying to read each DoT dmg message as it went flying by and noticed the occaisional high damage number.

That being said, other than making my eyes bleed, is there a filter option or some other feature to use to make DoT Crits easier to see? It's really a vanity question because I like seeing the high damage numbers! :tongue:

Also, has the dev team given us a reasonable explanation of why we don't see specific DoT Crit text the same as we get with DD Crits?

I think that would be a lot of extra spam if they had 2 or 3 additional lines of text for each time a dot tick critted. Since a nuke can only crit once, it is not too much more information to display to show the critical. For a dot, even one as short as NBW, you can get 2 crit ticks. Compound that some people use multiple dots at a time and you quickly can get a lot of spam.

There may also be a problem in the way it produces that information similar to why it is difficult to parse someone elses dots.

I don't ever remember there being crit messages for DoTs.

I don't ever remember there being crit messages for DoTs.

I seem to remember them but then again, my memory resembles swiss cheese anymore.

I still think it would be nice to see them as long as they're a filterable option. That is, able to turn the spam on or off or redirect it to another window.

Along the filter lines.... I've found how to abbreviate melee hits, am I just overlooking the filter that abbreviates DoT and spell damage?

I looked for a way to abbreviate DoT messages years ago.... but sadly there isnt. I think it's unfair that you can do it for melee but not DoT's

As for DoT crits. If you know how much a DoT lands for, more or less, you can see when it crits, more or less, by the number.
