Ranged DPS should typically only attack when in a Shadow Crash pool. I've done more DPS than any of the Melee by only attacking when standing in the pools. I also only recommend having more than 1 DPS in the pool if the Mark of the Faceless just got put on someone. There is nothing worse than getting General down to 5% and then screw it up because there were 2-3 people in the pool giving him 10K health (10 man) per tick.Also, remember the change in 3.2: There only needs to be 6 saraonite vapors up to initiate hard mode. This is down from 8.

@DzurIn my case (a mage), I will wand when I'm not in a shadow crash pool and only cast in the shadow crash pool and top the dps AND damage meters. This was in a group with a rogue who usually is very close to me in damage and dps (depending on the fight we'll flip flop). In the Vezax fight, I had a decent margin on BOTH damage done and dps against the rogue. Only dpsing part of the time does not mean that you will necessarily be low on the damage meters. I did this same thing on Thaddius as well (usually ended up on the side with the extra dpser).
