You stating that you are top DPS and in a top-guild doesn't give you a pass on actually understanding what the crux of the problem is. If you're doing sub-standard DPS it has little to do with your guild and e-peen and more to do with your lack of understanding/gear/etc.
Get to the point, don't post useless stuff.
OK so i just want to be absolutly clear before i do this. I have read everything since the patch that added shamanism and i have gathered that it will result in better DPS to cut out Chain Lightning while using a priority casting rotation. So if i'm whaling away on Patchwerk, i should be casting:
FS > LvB > LB
FS > LvB > CL > LB
My main concern is single target boss fights, and i know Patchwerk is pretty much the only one where i can sit there and do what i want without a care in the world. So i use him as my DPS check and using CL every chance i get when LvB is down, i get about 4k DPS in 10 man. And how you can bust out 5.4k is beyond me cause i'm top dps in one of the best raiding guilds on our server, although i know i can do better than 4k. This week i'm going to try it without CL and see what happens but i wanna know if you guys are saying LB does better dps and at a smaller mana cost.
