People who think a feral druid does good DPS after switching from tank to kitty midfight are clueless. A tank set will do at best 60% of what a proper DPS set could offer, which gets progressively worse relative to what "pure" DPS class can do. When I can OT an easier add in my DPS set such as the Lurker fight, there's nothing stopping a Fury warrior from doing the same thing and providing better DPS. Easy adds are easy, their worse TPS and damage mitigation aren't noticed.My guild is working on Illidan right now, and I'm one of the FR tanks. I'm doing a whole 430 dps per attempt, while everyone else is comfortably pulling 1700-1800 dps (people are holding back because FR gear has no TPS stats).If, for some reason, I could do the fight in my pure DPS gear, I'd expect to do 1200 dps at best, because of Illidan's not that melee friendly on top of my class's poor scaling.
