This lazy combat build as you call it is actually a dps gain in the case that you don't have the bleed debuff. If you don't have a sub rogue, feral druid or arms warrior you should be using this.

Adding Rupture to the build is still a net DPS gain, albeit a very small one. But its good to be in the habit of using it for when you do have a bleed buffer.

No, using rupture without the debuff is a dps loss. It's just that weak of a finisher.

True, the SnD/Evisc rotation beats Rupture, but you also need to incorporate your CDs and RvS first. :)

Look, go to shadowcraft and toggle off the 30% bleed debuff then toggle off use rupture tab under settings and you can see how much it has fallen from grace.

Huh, you're right. I had the bleed buff boxed ticked off. With the buff, its +331.3dps to encorperate Rupture. Without the buff, its a 71.5 dps loss.I would still recommend using Rupture in your 5 mans and raids by default though. A 71 dps loss is not that big of a deal in a 5 man, and you'll virtually always have the bufff in a raid. You need to be able to work it in without thinking about it when the bleed buff is present, and that means you need to practice it.

Adding Rupture for combat IS a DPS gain in simulators. But in practice, it is only worth on bosses with a bleed damage debuff. And even with that, the dps gain is not THAT much.I never use rupture and still can easily top the charts. It also leaves me with more room to do interrupts and more useful stuff.
