Patchwerk is common to use as a DPS benchmark, but it's important to realize the limitations of this:1) No movement. While movement may not affect a Warlock very much, it can wreak absolute havoc on some melee classes.2) Strictly single target. Many classes include AoE moves in their standard rotation - Think Ret paladins....their DPS drops drastically without using Consecrate or Divine Storm. Their DPS skyrockets on fights with multiple targets without any real increase in effort/mana usage.3) The last issue only affects Ret paladins, afaik. No raid damage....healers focusing strictly on tanks to keep them alive...few heals from SoB recoil...resulting mana issues.
