I really, really, really need to stop logging raids and then going through the parses.

I really do.

Why?

Because it makes me angry.

Last night on Hodir, I set up a Blessing of dammit! Hand of Sacrifice/Pain Suppression rotation for the Frozen Blows portion of the fight.

It would go thusly:

First Frozen Blows: Me

Second: Prot Pally in Healing Gear

Third: Holy Paladin

Fourth: Disc Priest

Fifth: Guardian Spirit or back to me if HoSac was on CD, then restart the whole thing.

I’m going to say that I wasn’t perfect on the night. I wasn’t. I accidentally hit a priest with Hand of Sacrifice on a Flash Freeze instead of the tank on Frozen Blows on an attempt. I laughed at myself for that one, but kept the damn tank up when FB came on.

But… looking at the parse… Oh, God, why do I torture myself?

Log parse below the cut.

FIRST:
0:00’47.051 Hodir gains Frozen Blows.
0:00’49.745 Tank gains Hand of Sacrifice.
0:00’55.112 Tank’s Hand of Sacrifice causes 0 damage to Madrana.
0:01’01.944 Madrana Hand of Sacrifice was removed from Tank.
0:01’07.070 Hodir Frozen Blows was removed from Hodir.

You will note that it was a mere two seconds before the tank gained Hand of Sacrifice. And that meant that HoSac was up for the full 12 seconds while Frozen Blows was active.

SECOND:
0:01’48.367 Hodir gains Frozen Blows.
0:01’59.274 Tank gains Hand of Sacrifice.
0:02’00.085 Tank’s Hand of Sacrifice causes 0 damage to Prot Pally In Healer’s Clothing.
0:02’08.461 Hodir Frozen Blows was removed from Hodir.
0:02’11.362 Prot Pally In Healer’s Clothing’s Hand of Sacrifice was removed from Tank.

You will note that the pally is 11 seconds LATE in casting HoSac. And the blessing lasts the full 12 seconds, but 3 of those seconds aren’t during Frozen Blows.

THIRD:
0:02’24.230 Tank gains Hand of Sacrifice.
0:02’25.821 Tank’s Hand of Sacrifice causes 6936 damage to Holy Paladin.
0:02’36.303 Holy Paladin’s Hand of Sacrifice was removed from Tank.
0:02’37.723 Hodir gains Frozen Blows.
0:02’57.768 Hodir Frozen Blows was removed from Hodir.

… epic FAIL. EPIC FAIL. I don’t even have the WORDS for how epic a fail that is right there. Then again, I DID cast it on a priest at another point in time, but it’s not representative of my play. THIS is representative of this guy’s.

FOURTH:
0:03’28.717 Hodir gains Frozen Blows.
0:03’30.028 Tank gains Pain Suppression.
0:03’38.092 Disc Priest’s Pain Suppression was removed from Tank.
0:03’48.825 Hodir Frozen Blows was removed from Hodir.

Perfect. 8 seconds, 40% damage reduction, that’s beautiful.

FIFTH:
0:04’23.021 Hodir gains Frozen Blows.
0:04’27.164 Tank gains Hand of Sacrifice.
0:04’39.319 Madrana Hand of Sacrifice was removed from Tank.
0:04’43.095 Hodir Frozen Blows was removed from Hodir.

I was a little late in casting it, but the buff lasted 12 seconds and was entirely throughout the Frozen Blows.

SIXTH:
0:05’09.270 Hodir gains Frozen Blows.
0:05’29.248 Hodir Frozen Blows was removed from Hodir.

That’s right. Nothing happened.

SEVENTH:
0:05’54.302 Hodir gains Frozen Blows.
0:06’08.392 Tank gains Hand of Sacrifice.
0:06’09.123 Tank Hand of Sacrifice causes 1178 damage to Holy Paladin.
0:06’13.526 Holy Paladin Hand of Sacrifice was removed from Tank.
0:06’14.246 Hodir Frozen Blows was removed from Hodir.

Hand of Sacrifice only allows 100% of the caster’s health to be transferred to them in damage, so that only lasted 5 instead of 12 seconds. But he was still, oh, 14 seconds late on the cast!

EIGHTH:
0:07’01.227 Hodir gains Frozen Blows.
0:07’02.613 Tank gains Pain Suppression.
0:07’10.651 Disc Priest Pain Suppression was removed from Tank.
0:07’21.325 Hodir Frozen Blows was removed from Hodir.

Have I mentioned I love the disc priest app?

NINTH:
0:07’44.797 Hodir gains Frozen Blows.
0:07’47.991 Tank gains Hand of Sacrifice.
0:07’48.911 Madrana Hand of Sacrifice was removed from Tank.
0:07’48.911 Tank gains Hand of Sacrifice.
0:07’49.161 Tank Hand of Sacrifice causes 128 damage to Madrana.
0:07’50.107 Tank Hand of Sacrifice causes 1307 damage to Prot Pally In Healer’s Clothing.
0:07’58.911 Prot Pally In Healer’s Clothing Hand of Sacrifice was removed from Tank.
0:08’04.731 Hodir Frozen Blows was removed from Hodir.

WTF.

I cast it. Then the prot pally casts it. Thanks for wasting my HoSac and blowing yours early.

We wiped shortly after due to other stupidity, but FFS, people.
