Loved the post and especially, "This is spot on. As a Shadow Priest, you simply need to learn that you do things differently, and there's nothing wrong with that assuming all involved understand it. As long as your tank can keep threat on multiple targets, it's not always beneficial for you to follow the MA. It's absolutely a player skill matter. You need to make a decision on what's the best action to take on a pull. If the main assist plans on killing mobs from right to left, start dotting from left to right. If the kill order is Skull, X, Square, Moon, then consider if it would hurt anybody if you skipped the Skull and started on the X instead, or just went down the line and DoTed up every single one of them."As someone who only abandon his aff lock when wrath hit, this was the easiest way to "cheat" the meters and blow players out of the water who outgeared me. I don't play a shadow priest, but the dot on dot action that was being addressed made me think of the lock. There are easy ways to boost your dps and they don't all begin and end with seed of corruption or mind sear.15 second pulls were never fun for my lock, and even now they aren't really fun since I have taken to leveling him again, but the boss fights more than make up for the fun factor returns, or lack thereof, on trash.
