E: Kitty's ended her testing due to lack of time and faster update cycle as she can't get her tests done between balance patches. But that means more time for actually playing those builds and Kitty's uploading lots of videos about that on her youtube-channel http://youtube.com/LadyKitty. And she's also occasionally streaming on them at https://twitch.tv/ladykittygw2.
E: Now that balance patch arrived, Kitty's starting her benchmarks again from 0 to account in the changes. As GotL was made into a might-spam trait and warrior's PS was nerfed, it's not almost a certainty (like 90% of squad running PS+druid+chrono in both subs) anymore that there's Empower Allies and Spotter in both subsquads since there's now some other good alternatives for both the slots that used to be reserved for 2nd PS warr and 2nd druid. So, Kitty takes a minimalistic approach with her benchmarks and drops EA and Spotter from her test setting, retaining banners and spirits as both boof whole raid squad and it's likely there's at least one (DPS or PS) warrior bringing banners and one ranger bringing spirits for the squad.
These changes obviously mean that Kitty's numbers will now be even further "what you can expect at least from this build".
Kitty's this far found other benchmarks quite narrow and slightly non-realistic, so she started her own benchmarking project after PoF landed. Now she's close to completing them (just lacking power ele, condi warrior and some not-so-used builds), so guess it's a good time to share a bit. 126 benchmarks at the time of writing this and there will be about 180+ when Kitty's done.
And like usual: don't be a build kitten. If the squad isn't speedrunning or doing No Updrafts-Gors, pretty much any build with over 20k DPS works for basic DPS role if played properly.
Note: these aren't "the best of 50 tries"-type benchmarks, but what Kitty could pull off within 8 tries (or less if Kitty felt like she did the best she could). Kitty's a kitten player with high ping, slow mind and reaction time and these benchmarks were done with a normal mouse and keyboard, so any player with full ascended gears (including poor multi-classers) should be able to do about as well at least. And speedrunners should do way moar <.< >.>
E: Kitty also added "Boss DPS Requirements"-tab with minimum squad total DPS numbers to avoid enrage.
