This.There's not a whole hell of a lot of skill involved with watching for procs either. Buff pops up, you hit the button.Lock and Load? Hit Explosive shot.Sudden Death? Hit execute.Missile barrage? Hit arcane missiles.None of this is exactly rocket science. Nowhere do you see a tooltip that says "Does increased damage if the target is facing away from you, has two separate bleed effects on them, is frozen or stunned but not snared, and you are not under any enrage effects.""You hit the button and damage happens" describes every damage-dealing ability in the game. Skill comes in knowing what the OTHER person is about to do in pvP and how to counter it, and knowing what the mob is going to do in pvE, and how to counter that. That's why fights like Patchwerk are interesting benchmarks, but are referred to as "gear checks" and not "skill checks."
