When I look at Simcraft results, which has 25.55% haste at level 90, I see Mindbender and Shadowfiend both attacking 13 times per cast, and MB doing 60% of SF's damage per attack.
Here's how I'm getting the numbers from the Simcraft results page:
All of the sims with Shadowfiend have 40.0 attacks over 553 seconds. Shadowfiend is cast with an interval of 181.7 seconds. This means Shadowfiend is cast 553/181.7 = 3.04 times, and has 40.1 / 3.04 = 13.18 attacks per cooldowns.
The three sims with Mindbender have 116 attacks over 553 seconds. Mindbender is cast with an interval of 62.1 seconds. This means Mindbender is cast 553/62.1 = 8.91 times, and has 13.01 attacks per cooldown.
Average damage done per Mindbender attack is 37055; average damage done per Shadowfiend attack is 60960. Relative damage is 37055/60960 = 0.607
However, when I check out how Mindbender and Shadowfiend differ during live, at 85, using 25.52% haste, I find something quite different:
- Code: Select all
Attacks 12/13 9/10
per attack ~0.66 1
Shadowfiend is attacking much less frequently on live at 85 vs. on simcraft at 90. In addition Mindbender is doing ~10% more damage per attack on live at 85 than it is on simcraft at 90.
Am I doing something incorrectly?
