FFXIV App parsers and limit break damageFollow

Hello! I was wondering if you had a few moments to answer questions regarding FFXIV App's parser.

I seem to be getting skewed results on % total damage done when people use LBs. As in, it's accrediting it to a player's total damage done even though it's more like a group effort type deal. For instance, you have two melee DPS who are the same class and have the same gear who use the same rotation and play at the same skill level. One of the DPS uses LB3 on X boss and obtains a damage boost in the parser.

Is this current the case? Is LB damage baked into total damage? If this is the case, is there a way to search for LB damage and make it a separate tab in FFXIV App's parser?

Thanks for any help you can provide!

In FFXIV-App, just click the players name on the party damage list and you can see a breakdown of dmg by move. Look for Final Heaven/ETC and subtract that amount.

Yeah. I'd ideally like to get rid of that in the 'overview' of the party damage under "Total %" and make a new tab for party members that is called 'Limit Break'.

At a glance, the parse is a little skewed. I meant something like this:

I'll look at that as well; or at least an option to not count it. Currently anything someone does is counted for the most part. This includes cannon's and magitek mounts in CM.
Like Final Fantasy XI, the game specs will be extremely high for the time, but in about 5 years, an average machine can run it on max settings with little to no issues. Tanaka also expressed interest in making a benchmark program available.
