Kittymarks

8th May 2018 Balance Patch has arrived and Kitty’s testing again. She’ll update her test results here as she tests so stay tuned! However, to test further, Kitty won’t be uploading videos of her tests as it’d eat too much time and data.
Meanwhile, Kitty’s been recording videos of various builds she’s tested at various raid bosses.
You can find the links to them on Video Archive-page or Kitty’s Youtube-channel.

Note: These aren’t highest possible DPS potential test results but something what above average pugs (around 70-90th percentile) might do on tested builds. The point is to give some sort of guideline about how builds compare with various trait and weapon combinations as the differences can be surprisingly small and for some people alternative weapon combination might work better than optimal due to possibly easier rotation and more suitable playstyle. At least Kitty fails hardon some long/tight metarotations and does better by simplifying. (Kitless sword+shield holo ftw!)
If you’re looking for highest possible super-optimized metanumbers, Kitty suggests going to Snowcrows.com instead. <.<

Hint: Due to massive amount of builds tested, Kitty recommends using Ctrl+F and searching for the build you’re interested (for ex. “condi dragonhunter”). Kitty  uses “build class” format for clarity.

DPS: A pure DPS build
Condi: A build that focuses on condi damage, uses viper’s gears in most cases.
Power: A build that focuses on direct damage, uses berserker’s gears.
Renegade’s: The build uses Renegade’s runes.
C. Dur. Runes: The build uses 2xTrapper’s+4xNightmare runes.
Tank Condi/TB’s: The build uses Trailblazer’s gears with toughness+condi foods and other stuff what it’d use while tanking for ex. VG and Gors.
Tank/Power: Uses gears with toughness in addition to power DPS stats.

Due to limited text space, Kitty can’t go to full details describing builds but she’s tried to include enough info for people playing the class to deduce rest.

100% is set at 34 000 DPS. All tests are done on Standard Kitty Golem (Small hitbox, 4M HP) unless otherwise specified.
Boons used:
-25 Might, Fury, Vigor, Swiftness, Quickness, Alacrity, Regeneration, Protection
-Banners, Empower Allies, Sun Spirit, Frost Spirit, Spotter (and Pinpoint Distribution on condi classes since other benchmarkers use it, too and retaliation for DH).
The rotations used are actual combat rotations with dropping banners and spirits and stuff in case of support classes for more realistic results.
Kitty’s now using Logitech G502 gaming mouse with mousebinds for utilities, heal and elite skils.
Note: Builds utilizing torment and confusion conditions do lower damage on golem than in actual raid situations. Also, Kitty’s not the best player around so her results on builds with difficult gameplay reflect what a bit above average player would pull on them after 1-1,5 hours of practise.

How the tests will be done?
-Full Ascended gears (unless otherwise specified on some special builds. Kitty has 9 full bank tabs of ascended gears just to test builds extensively.)
-By default, Scholar’s runes for power and 2xTrapper’s + 4xNightmare runes or Renegade’s runes for condi.
-No stat infusions. Kitty (and 99% of other players) ish too poor for them
-Berserker’s for power and Viper’s for condi, Grieving for hybrids.
-if condiduration goes over 100%, Sinister trinkets may be included (and mentioned) , as well as some Assassin’s trinkets if the build needs them for crit rate.
-Kitty uses “MH+OH/MH+OH” format for weapon sets
-Kitty will be also testing some “inferior non-meta builds” to see how non-optimal weapons/specs/traits fare when compared to other classes. [1]
-Consumables will be whatever’s the best common option for the build.
-The test parameters will be pretty much same as SC’s, expecting the player’s subsquad to have Chrono+Druid+PS Warrior(+engi for condibuilds) and 2 DPS.
-Kitty uses Logitech G502 gaming mouse with utilities, heal skill and elite bound to mouse.
-Kitty’s european and she plays on NA servers, so she has ~150-200ms ping. Kitty’s reaction time is about 270ms (and Kitty’s horrible at focusing) which combined
means almost double in-game reaction time and derpier gameplay than most EU/US players.

Notes: [0] Kitty can’t afford a full ascended armors specifially for just one build, so she’ll be using exotics for some special builds like Power PS Warrior (Strenght runes).
[1] Thus when Kitty includes the non-optimal builds unlike big benchmarking guilds, her Kittymarks are way more expansive. People usually exaggerate the effect of various choices.
