"And while Dreamless Sleep saw some use in 40-man raids in the old world, I don't hear about it being used much in BC - anyone a fan?"Mostly horrible for use as a healer, but great for use as a DPS (though it was dispellable at one point, I am not sure if it still is, and you risked it being cleansed or dispelled from you) -- I had a handful of these on my hunter after levelling alch to 375 and they saved my backside a couple times solo and were useful a couple times in instances. Specifically in situations where I could not Feign/drink (usually because of FD cooldown). Not as useful for classes liable to take direct damage solo though obviously. I can see it being almost as useful to DPS casters in raids; if I was on my mage and too close to top of threat, and nearly oom, I could use this instead of a Super Mana Potion and get more mana back to save evocate for later, which I usually do just before or just after invisibility in raid boss fights. Not always possible in fights that require a lot of movement in particular phases, but worth looking for the opportunity. As far as healing goes I have only ever used them on my priest in Gruul's Lair over a year ago, after throwing Renew on the tank right before the Silence effect. It was definitely better than a normal mana pot, but I was also raid healing and not tank healing, which could have gone horribly if I was asleep at a crucial moment.In short, they're more useful than people think. But I tend to use the mats for other valuable things.

Major Dreamless Sleeps are amazing for shadowpreists. While shadowpriests are pumping out mana for everybody else, they're sucking down the mana pots still, and since healing and regening mana And doing dps causes a lot of threat, that time for a dreamless sleep helps their threat And gives them more mana back.
