Pre patch I was 0/41/30 and liked it a lot. Post patch I went 0/40/31 and am having some trouble adjusting to the rotations.One of the reasons I liked 41/30 was the rotation was pretty simple and easy to max uptime on. 40/31 isnt nearly so easy. I'm not sure how much of the lower dps comes from 3.1 and how much from not knowing the rotations as well, but my dps output went down with 3.1. I'm improving on maxing uptime on my rotation though. The biggest problem for me is that the cooldown on Conflag doesnt show up on Quartz which I am accustomed to using for my dot timers, and Conflag "uptime" is pretty key for that spec. A second problem is that I need to keep the life tap buff up. My prior play style didn't life tap till I really needed it as I didn't want to interrupt my rotation any more than absolutely necessary. Now I need to tap every 20 seconds provided I have the health which isn't always the case in Ulduar.I also tend to lose the imp on fights like Deconstructor if I dont micro-manage him enough to make sure he's not near anybody (like me) who might get a Light Bomb or Gravity Bomb.

FaragornCheck out a add on called Event Horizon. It will help you determine casting priorities and also tracks uptime of your most crucial spells. It was designed originally for Locks but has since been expanded to other classes. I use it to manage my Rogue's Mutilate rotations and has been a life saver. I think it will be very beneficial for you especially having to learn a new rotation and all.
