I believe I read somewhere that a blue poster (Ghost crawler?) mentioned that 1600 DPS was the designed amount of DPS for 10 man raids. To me that makes sense since I think with all dps averaging that you'd just get Patchwerk down on the enrage timer, but it would be real tight.As for hitting the big numbers I read here, somehow I doubt it. While you may have been hitting 2.5k+ in the Sunwell you have to remember you hadA) A well balanced group, not 6 deathknights 3 druids and a warrior so you maxed out there on buffs.B) Sunwell gear is really really good, check out shadow priest.com, a lot of it is still in the top 10 you can gear with (not including Uldar), so you'll do more then someone in blues.C) If you were in Sunwell then you probably play your class very well, once upon a time you didn't, so even if you are a good player that is motivated and tries to improve it makes sense to make the first raid not expect you to be mr fantastic straight away.Based on that I'm not seeing Uldar at 4k needed, seriously, what do you need to pull on hard mode? Based on what I've seen so far its looking like 2k bare minimum (10 man here) probably actually 2.5k really needed to cover deaths and other inefficiencies.Saying that I've seen a fury warrior wearing early purples with the odd blue pulling 3k dps pre titan grip nerf in our casual guild 10 man, but his main is in a top end guild.
