I absolutely agree with you. DPS in PuGs can be terrible. They ding 80 and are off to heroics without the necessity Tanks and healers have to gear up before doing heroics.To prove they have the DPS to be doing heroics, they do nothing but AoE all the time to pad their stats.There is no consideration that maybe reducing the number of mobs in the pull would help the tank to survive or the healer to keep up with the damage.I know it seems counter-intuitive, but AoE, while doing more DPS than focus-fire, is slower to kill the first mob. Focus-fire will help an undergeared healer or tank by thinning out the pull as quickly as possible, reducing the incoming damage and allowing the tank to last the distance.
