    You DPSers all look the same to me.
    Cough. You missed another dps - me

    Nice conversation regarding dps. I fully agree that total dps is a better measure. But there are times when you need that burst, so burst dps is also a handy meter.

    So I'm not the only one who uses that technique. Obviously this affects your overall damage for the fight due to not using Arcane Missiles as soon as you have 4 stacks (I've been know to go to 6 on some occasions due to the timing). But it does mean that you can burst damage/aggro the blood beasts as soon as they spawn. Which is better overall.

    It all depends on the class. For instance, a Mage who does high DPS in burst who then is forced to run around due to a boss mechanic will maintain high DPS as when they stop attacking the DPS stops recording. Where as a class with dots or a pet in the same situation the DPS will still record as the dot ticks or the pet attacks, meaning it look a lot less impressive DPS wise. Even though they are in fact doing more damage.

    That's the reason I personally look at damage done, and then take into account if its not a melee friendly fight. I think you have to look at different methods of gauging how well you are doing depending on your class, There isn't one rule for all.

    Damage done is the important part and the higher you are on damage done the better you have performed. HOWEVER you get high damage done by having high dps be it burst or sustained DPS is 'ussually' a better indicator as to how well you are performing compared to your gear.

    Did I come off as argumentative? Wasn't my intention just having a debate is all.
