Hehe, yeah Oz, you're right. Although my point was, I hope, a little more subtle than that. With a couple of exceptions, if we fail we fail as a team. It's a 25 man raid for a reason - if we fail consistently, you can hardly blame one person's choice of dps spec. We should all review our performance, even you
Equally, the pats on the back are appreciated - really!!
Following on from what you said, I was shocked by the amount of Shadow Prison damage we were all taking, which, as you rightly say must be reduced. However hard it is to stay still when chasing balls and spreading for shock vortices, this can be reduced. Relatively speaking, the tanks can pretty much stay still, practically negating debuff damage. We need to find a balance. But, if the dps can improve by 5% we have them! I'm sure EVERYONE can pull that out now that we've had some good shakes at downing them. We were soooo close. I will be expecting at least a 50% dps increase from myself next time - I'll be hitting the boss, not babysitting everyone else's balls :P
Anyway, good thread Oz, I'll stop arguing now
PS. Watch some vids, they're entertaining and really helpful if you focus on what other players of your class are doing.
