Nice article, although it forgets one important thing;Lower dps hunter =/ worse hunter.I have a hunter in my guild who outdpses me on most fights. However he is the last to move out the fire (so he still gets his cobra shot off with hawk, but is a lot more of a drain on the healers) he doesn't use the raptor strike glyph on fights where it really helps (like Nef and Beth'Thilac etc), he doesn't use a pet the raid can use, always uses cat (while we have a dk in all raids too providing that buff), sometimes he doesn't kill the right stuff and keeps on his current target (boss) instead of adds. His gear is better (he has 4pc T11, while after months I still have to get mine).So while his dps is sometimes higher, I know I am a better hunter. ome classes can put out crazy dps, but die 3 sec later. The real conclusion should be that dps meters should only be used relatively for your own progress and increase in dps, not to compare players.

Indeed I agree: dps alone isn't the only (or most important) measure of skill. However skill is the most important contribution to your dps.
