Is Skada reliable yet? Everything I've ever seen says it loses data compared to Recount. (And that's a completely separate issue from the "it reports lower DPS because it counts idle time" difference -- which I don't care about.)

I should clarify... everything I've ever seen except for all the people who say it doesn't happen. But, you know, at least 51% of everything I've seen or I wouldn't believe it. Probably.Um, er, anyway... does Skada still lose data?

I've found Skada to be more reliable than Recount, e.g., two people running Skada in a fight have the same numbers, whereas I often got different numbers with Recount. It also uses less memory (idk if Recount has improved on this score). There are options you can set in Skada to discard trash, so maybe that would affect someone's totals, but for a given fight, Skada is accurate enough. The only thing I miss is Recount's graphical breakdown of spell usage. If you are really interested in accurate meters or fight analysis, just save the combat log with an addon like Loggerhead and upload to World of Logs.
