Aug 15th 2011 9:29AM I admit that I'm very much aware of the DPS meters, for some reason I still feel that I have something to prove DPS wise since I'm a ret pally. But knowing the raid mechanics, making sure I do my other non-dps tasks (interrupts etc) and not causing any wipes are still my primary concerns, DPS charts don't mean a thing if the raid boss is still alive. Having said that, I won't deny I get a warm fuzzy feeling if I'm somewhere in the top 3 of the DPS after downing the boss.

Personally I'm just glad I was able to donate a little bit to the relief efforts (and get a pet in return), regardless of it being through the American Red Cross and me being an Asian.
