Thanks! I downloaded that this morning, but haven't tried it out. I think my biggest problem -- especially with the DPS charts -- is with the mobs and not the bosses. On a boss, I've done pretty well keeping everything up and going. On the trash pulls, I'm unsure if I'm doing it right. Let's say there is a pull of 3 mobs. I target the tank's target. VT and MB to get replenishment going. At this point, it is probably halfway down. SW:P and DP don't seem efficient. Tab to other mobs (which are likely AoE'd down a bit) and... DoT them? MF since MB probably isn't back up? I've been defaulting to flaying them. Sometimes I try to VT > MB one of the other mobs (again, replenishment) but it rudely dies before the MB gets off. Should I not be trying to do that? Just MF and MB the trash?
Oops, was supposed to be a reply.

it really depends on how fast your group is killing things. Sometimes its better dps wise to go for the secondary target rather than the one everyone else is on, and hope the tank is keeping threat up on multiple targets. This way you can get a full rotation in, including SW Pain. Experiment with this to see how the tank is handling multimob threat. If you are grabbing aggro too often, even with Fade, then just go back to plan A.Im guessing you dont have mind sear yet. Once you get that, then you will expect to see a good improvement in your dps. Once again, VT/MB a secondary target and use MS for the rest of the mobs. That way your aoe is going to last longer than if you dotted the primary target. ie. you wont have to change target so soon. Just have to monitor your threat abit more but thats all part of the challenge of the game :) Multidotting with VT is another method before hitting MS, but your results may vary depending on the strength of the group. Stuff dies so fast, sometimes MS is better value straight off the bat. (with just one mob having VT/MB for replenishment).What glyphs do you have currently?

My glyphs are SW:P and MF. Mind Sear isn't for another 6 levels (really, until cataclysm for me since I only have BC), but I hadn't thought much about Fade. Heh, with my lowish DPS I've only taken threat away from a tank twice - I look forward to it being a problem! I'll try going after a secondary target with Fade in mind and see how it goes. Thanks for the suggestions!
