"In BC, AoE was bad. Tanks had very little AoE threat - only Paladins really had strong AoE. If the DPS went in all AoE-happy, they either broke CC or pulled aggro. Shattered Halls was a nightmare for non-Paladin tanks, and was often dual-tanked."Just as importantly, Seed of Corruption was the only AoE ability that scaled enough to be useful on normal instance trash mobs. If you weren't a warlock, during BC you'd do more damage single target... just about always.AoE was also bad because even if your tank was good enough to hold threat over the healer on a big pack (no shockwave, thunderclap only hit four targets, and swipe only hit three) it was very unlikely that the healer could keep the tank up through the incoming damage, though of course that got better if you got a tank and/or healer with tier 5 or 6 gear. You single-targeted because that way the incoming damage went down faster.
