Essentially, due to players having so many numbers available to them, it's the perfect way to improve. If a player is looking to up their damage output they can look at other top-performers of their class and see what abilities they use and when. If a player wants to figure out which trinket is the best for them they can do so by looking at their trinket uptime.

These are just a few examples of the amount of information Warcraft Logs provide.
