DPS Rankings for Healing Classes

Post by yzerman » Sat Feb 23, 2013 3:40 pm

Tanks can top DPS rankings on a number of fights, but healers are only allowed to rank for HPS. Looking for DPS rankings switching from showing only, as an example, affliction locks to holy priests it goes from Damage done (DPSe) to Healing done (HPSe). I'd like to see some rankings for healers as far as DPS. There are some fights where we need our healer to DPS in Holy/Disc spec (priest) and they put out some respectable numbers for a healing class (http://worldoflogs.com/reports/oci2p17v ... 78&e=10750), or where druid healers are asked to use Heart of the Wild and throw in some DPS. It would be nice to see rankings for these fights so we can compare their effective DPS.

The last info from the devs on this subject was that they currently don't plan to provide healer DPS rankings:

It's mainly a technical issue: we kept 3 million rankings before the separation of Asian rankings and expect that this number will now increase to some 4 to 5 million rankings. The database tables for these rankings as well as their indexes need to be kept in main memory to prevent swapping and the performance degradation that causes. Adding DPS specs for all healers would increase the number of rankings by too much in this regard.

We are, however, looking into adding DPS rankings for just Holy Priests. Keep an eye on the forums for information on that.
