Yeah we were wondering about that as well, because there's no way a spell with no AoE cap could be doing such shit damage ( or maybe it does have a AoE cap now, I haven't been reading hotfixes since like January, too much stuff to keep up with - but yeah ), turns out I hit 21 mobs with it for a grand total of 24k damage. It's one of those "I don't even..." moments. :|
Not sure if it has an aoe cap or not but yeah, something wrong with the first room of Iron Docks that causes cata to bug out
^ On a seemingly related topic on how the fuck does 50% AoE and 30% overall damage make it hit so little, was doing a realm 1st run on Iron Docks today ( did get it coz I'm fucking sick as fuck obviously, jk fucking trash content ), and my Cataclysm and Chaos Wave hit ~20 targets and did combined amount of 20k damage ( whereas usually cata+2x chaos waves are usually around insta250k DPS ) on mobs that have no sort of damage reduction and there's no damage cap in the world that could make it to do such low damage.
They're on top of their ball in numbers game ever since the item squish, I've noticed this "feature" popping up in Highmaul when it just got released, randomly ending up below 10th spot because somebody can't fucking multiply/divide numbers correctly&write functioning code, thus my main nuke ends up doing x% less damage than it should, fucking joke.
When I was doing Iron Docks, my cataclysms would always miss on the first huge pull (assuming that's what you're talking about?). Had something to do with the little ledge graphic pattern thing in the middle of the first room that messes with it I think, never happened to me anywhere else.
Were your Cata's actually hitting all the targets and doing around 20k, or did they only hit like 2 mobs? Mine always only hit 2 mobs on that first pull :x
Get a flask, eat 100 stat food, use Archmage Vargoth toy just before the countdown starts (you can kill it, has 3k hp and you get a free stack). There's also another toy like this but I forget the name.
Consider using Healing Tonics over your healthstone, and draenic intellect potions (1k int for 25 seconds) too.
Use a toy that makes you look like something else (a lot of people don't even realise), use harvest life / drain life glyph + GoSac for healing, make alliances with people until you're the last 2.
Roll for it and if you lose betray them :^).
I haven't tried destro yet but I always come close to winning as affliction - the main thing is making alliances
