As a hunter, I usually rank somewhere up in 2 or 3 on the DPS meter but have also found myself in arguments with people who say I should be at no.1 I'm not sure if that is a compliment or an insult since it always sound so nasty when someone says that to me. I was running ZG heroic and ended up in the 4th spot. I was constantly yelled at for being terrible and I even admitted that I was having a bad day and doing a half ass job of it. I said "I'm at no.4 because the other DPS are so much better than me." and this struck a nerve with everyone in the group. We then started arguing about that. Honestly, I do believe that I'll eventually run into a group where the DPS are better geared than I am and that I will end up at no.4 or whatnot (I don't care too much about those damn DPS meter) and I will treat that case as such because why would I be better at DPS if some Rogue's gear outclass mine? Sigh. The stress of WOW.

I call it it HEROIC MALAISE. I run it half a day and I'm zoning out. I'm coasting along. I'm on auto-pilot mode. This is what the daily grind does to a person.

Because greater skill will give you more DPS than gear upgrades ever will. 2 players in the same class, spec, professions, and gear using the same rotation can have widely different numbers. I've been the guy that does twice the DPS as someone better geared and I've been the guy that does half the DPS of an equally geared player (back in Wrath I was forced into Fury so I could get a raid spot, being unfamiliar with the spec and rotation, as well as having a dislike for the spec in general, has a huge impact on your DPS).

Number 4 means you were below the tank, yo. It's acceptable on some of the AoE heavy trash, but if you were that way throughout the entire dungeon I'd be a little irked too.
