In regards to setting "DPS bars", I would just like to add my experience from this morning in Gun'drak:The Hunter was averaging over 3k DPS while the rest of us were averaging 2k DPS. Two factors contributed to this.#1: The dual-wielding Frost DK tank wasn't a spectacular AoE threat dude. It didn't help that he spent half the fight changing targets and stopping AoE to go chase after whatever the Hunter was pulling off of him. The Hunter was AoEing pretty well...but didn't know how to use FD or MD.#2: Nobody else could AoE without risking pulling Aggro because of #1. Hell, I could barely single-target DPS...as soon as the tank changed targets to go chase after the latest runner, I would rapidly hit the threat ceiling and have to stop attacking. I spent most of the dungeon running after the tank instead of hitting things, which made me upset - I like hitting things.This all changed once we got to a boss. The Hunter managed 2k while the rest of us were doing 3k. That made me happy.I'm REALLY glad you made this post. :)

I should mention that I'm a bit miffed by the numbers a lot of people have been throwing around. "Personal DPS" typically refers to single-target DPS on a long fight. When people start rambling about "You must be THIS AWESOME to get on this ride", they're confusing their DPS with heroic AoE DPS.There's a big difference between the two.
