Ya, that would be pretty awesome Are you trying to drop hints at what your new update is looking like?

Nah, we won't have anything like that is this next update, but it's on our 'wouldn't that be awesome' list? We also want to link up people's character gear and skills to the parser soon. The idea is if you're looking at someone else in your group and you're like 'how did he out dps me so bad?' You can at least check on his gear and skills and see if that accounts for some of it, or if you need to cast more often, etc.

And, fwiw, anyone can link the characters into their parsers since we have that api! Mr. Robot loooves sharing.

Good to know, I might take you up on that offer one day

First off, I am thinking from the tank's viepoint which is "how much damage did I actually avoid".

I seriously hope "robot's" math is better than that. You have to look at how much each individual skill misses, then average damage yield for that particular skill, then overall adjusted DPS. We all do realize it's only that free 1st-lvl attack that can miss, right?

It probably works similar for the bosses, but any melee/ranged attack can miss say because of Shadow's Combat Technique Force Breach debuff (-5% accuracy) which isn't always on.

It's good that you share your plans, I think everyone appreciates it and that tool will be very useful. The more open the community is, the sooner parser development converges on something making true difference in gameplay.

What I was hoping to get across is that I'm primarily concerned about not dying rather than increasing DPS (although DPS is crucial, it's my second priority). The more information I can get from every boss pull, the better. For that, I'd say key pieces are:
- skill list for each mob
- type of damage for each skill i.e. kinetic, energy, internal, external
- type of attack i.e. melee, ranged, force, technical - this prooobably can be derived heuristically with enough information, since you have enough server-wide statictics. NB: Shadow's Resilience skill completely negates all damage from Force/Tech attacks, that's one of the dead giveaways.
- breakdown of attacks missed, being parried/deflected/dodged, shielded, damage absorbed for each skill
- charts showing total damage broken down by damage type and attack type

See e.g. our tonight KP NM run: Jarg & Sorno fight,,f=22,t=38
Sorno has 6 damaging skills that have different "miss%" values - some are 0, suggesting they can't be evaded or are internal tech (I don't know), some have fairly high miss percentage - but what's the drill-down? Is his damage mostly kinetic/energy or internal/elemental? Should RL put Shadow tank or Vanguard tank on Sorno based on that? When are the saves most useful, and which ones?

I really like how MOX parser now handles these statistics - exactly what I was pulling from 3 different parsers is in one place. Per-skill per-mob information regarding how many attacks missed, were parried, shielded or absorbed. It only needs some more information regarding damage / attack types, some heuristics and obviously better graphics.

Feokist, I think we agree on the lost DPS. The part you quoted is the explanation I had for 'lost DPS' calculation you pointed out. Which I continued to explain wasn't super-useful. And the author of that tool, you and I all seem to agree that isn't the best number because it's much more complicated than that. So that part is settled

As for the avoids and such, totally agree. Showing the breakout of info would be super useful, which we'll have soon

There are so many more things all these tools can do as we evolve, it will be fun to see how they all develop (including MOX, which is a great damage meter!)

Speaking of coming soon. I did make my gear profile actually, thumbs up for making is super user-friendly! The only thing I couldn't find was crafted Rakata relic with augments. I am anxious to see how you'd implement simulation of damage difference based on gear profiles. I hope you look into both damage dealt and received.

Again, offering any help to anyone on Shadow (tanking and other) skills' and procs' names, effects and other details.

Feokist, thanks for the offer to help. I have a small list of ability names to change, I'm sure I'm still missing some.

Funny you mention the crafted relics, I just got an email from someone yesterday with the same bug report. What relics can be crit-crafted with augments? Rakata only? Or can Campaign Relics also be crit-crafted? That fix should go out with the next combat log update (early next week).

I agree it will be cool to see all the parsers evolve

For GXR-7 Commander

117 DPS Combined with the companion, player alone 70 DPS

You could share by permalink.
Couldn't merge yet (work in progress)

The user interface for the parser its spanish but we are thinking in translated to english
reads english logs only
Is has anonymous upload but its deleted in 24 hours
Is has guild management system so you could have all your guild logs together

May features:

Explore logs, combats, participants, npcs, and filter by many criterias.

Details data include damage done/taken
breakdown by damage and healing target

and so on

Comments & feedback appreciated
