> And for a pure DPS class, that's about the worst thing that can possibly happen to you. Your job as DPS is to simply pump out as much damage as humanly possibly on whatever target you happen to be killing -- and if you can't do that, what good are you? Well, it's a trade-off, in that case, isn't it? Which is more important - do we need more DPS, or do we really, really need a rogue feinting to reduce Stomp damage?If your raid needs your damage more, then having you switch to Subtlety may not be the best solution. There are other ways to deal with it, of course, depending on your composition... for example, as a Warrior tank, I respecced to pick up Safeguard, and I can use that to reduce the damage taken by the Fury Warrior we've got standing with me on about every other Stomp. By calling out when I don't have that available, I can let our group's healer know when the other Warrior's going to need more attention. We've also both got Rallying Cry that we can use, and I can use my 4-piece once every couple of minutes....So, options. It's all about trade-offs. Sure, kicking out the leet deeps is nominally your job, but sometimes the raid needs to sacrifice that for utility. Sometimes other things work out better.
