I have a hard time imagining how some people's DPS can be so low. My personal favorite, out of runs I've been on in-person, was a Warlock in a mix of high-end Ulduar gear and the new ToC gear, posting about 1.3k DPS.What I don't understand is how they do it -- even auto-attacking with a wand, and mixing in an occasional spell, you should be able to do more than 1.3k, especially with that gear.Yet I am sure the absolute lowest I could do (as melee), while auto-attacking, is about 2.2k. I just don't understand how it could be lower, especially since time off target doesn't factor into your overall DPS numbers, the way the WWS client and Recount work.Every class or spec has fights where their DPS is crippled, whether it's because they have to fill some other, non-DPS but still crucial role; or maybe the tank is not very good, and as melee you find yourself constantly running after targets; or maybe a debuff or bad stuff on the ground prevents you from reaching the hit box of a certain boss. But consistently underperforming like that? It's either indicative of such incredible laziness that pushing an extra two buttons is seen as a major effort, or that the person genuinely doesn't know what they're doing.
