I'm no genius with the math or anything, but I wanted to try working out my DPS myself.
I reported boss fight segments to /officer (because nobody is there to use it in my guild) and used the values from the report to calculate my DPS.
I worked out how much time between the start time of the fight and the end time and broke it down to seconds. I then divided my reported damage done by the amount of seconds I'd worked out for fight duration. There may be more here that I'm not aware of in which case this thread is pointless, but according to my math, Recount isn't reporting DPS accurately. See below:
Start time: 16:36:00
End time: 16:37:38
Damage Done: 2087218
Recount reported: 22826.1 DPS
I calculated: 21298.1 DPS
Start time: 16:45:32
End time: 16:47:10
Damage Done: 1950873
Recount reported: 21381.8 DPS
I calculated: 19906.8 DPS
Start time: 16:51:24
End time: 16:54:00
Damage Done: 1980043
Recount reported: 15034.5 DPS
I calculated: 12692.5 DPS
It may look stupid, I'm arguing about higher values, but I'd really prefer knowing for sure what the numbers REALLY are.
