Thanks for the great article. I pride myself on being a dps for the tank to work with, through liberal use of stuns, blinds, kicks, and Tricks of the Trade. But this gave me a few more items to work on.As you are researching for your dps part of the series, may I add a suggestion? I have noticed a trend recently, and I'm really bad with boss names, so work with me.As examples, the first boss in Well of Eternity, and the second boss in Hour of Twilight, lay down a fire and a smokebomb, respectively. We must move out of these ground effects or die. Well, recently, many of the tanks I've been with have only moved themselves out of the fire, leaving the boss in it. As a rogue, this means that I have to attack the boss from the front in order to get out of the fire. This not only really hurts my dps, but also subjects me to cleaves, burdening the healer even more.Bosses are not harmed by their own fire, so please, just take a few more steps back so I can squeeze in behind and not be in the fire.That would be my suggestion for your next in the series. Great job so far. I'm learning a lot about how other roles see the game, and it is making me a better dps'er. Can't wait for the next installment.

I'd say positioning is definitely one of those things that tanks can do to make dps happy. It's not just moving the mobs out of fires. Not moving a group that doesn't need to move. Allowing the boss'/mobs back to be where melee can be. Not dragging stuff onto the hunter, grouping stuff up, etc.
