Arguments like that show your own lack of understanding of the game mechanics and can end up with some DPS shouting how they topped the dps meters, ignoring the fact the pulled off the tank, healers had to scramble to keep them up (causing potential tank heal or mana issues), or stayed dead for half the fight. I can pull 16k dps on an aoe pull with my lock, that said, few tanks can hold against that kind of aggro. When they break loose, kill me, then run through the raid, the wipe it would cause is my fault. Looking only at the meters, I am a stellar performer. Looking at the results, I would be just another failed dps.Meters are one tool and those that bases decisions off of only one tool does not understand the game.The same is true of my healer. I have resto druid that is specced for raid heals. His numbers look great, but other classes/specs do better at MT healing. Basing it off just the numbers and I would be the obvious candidate for MT heals on a tough boss fight.
