Well, Matt... That's pretty much my point. Dispersion in PvE is an excellent tank ability but as you are aware, shadow priests are not tanks. It does give us the ability to survive certain things we wouldn't otherwise be able to, but those situations are few and far between. A shadow priest's primary job in PvE is to deal damage. Dispersion does not help that job (unless you're having serious mana trouble or your healers hate you). We have a bottom tier talent that a tank wants and a caster doesn't, that should say something.As far as the dots thing... it's still a dps loss. Sure you can load up your dots right before using dispersion but what would you be doing if you weren't dispersed in a normal rotation? You wouldn't be just standing around, you'd be spamming mind flay or something. Therefore, yes, it is definitely a dps loss.
