First of all, I want to thank everyone on the for their inputs on this forum. I've made changes to gems, enchants, and even some changes in choice of gear. I'm not T7-decked-out (check it out) but I make do with a few pieces of T7 gear from Archavon...
In any case, two nights ago before I upgraded my pants, I ran OS25... No one died and Sarth went down fairly quickly, but I topped the DPS meters at 4.15k DPS (and did NOT get hit by the firewall!) Next closest was a 3.2k DPS. Needless to say I was stoked!!!
I really attribute it to this forum. I don't have the gear to be doing 4k+, or so I thought... between enchants, gems, attack rotations, flasks, food... well, I just wanted to say that in iLevel 187+200 gear, it is possible to break 4k!
Relating to 3.1, we shall see... My guild priest healer simply cannot keep up... I can't run any heroics with him without dying, and I don't think it's his ability or lack thereof... Priests don't seem to have a good multi-target heal similar to Druids, Paladins or Shamans, and it simply is impossible for he and I to run at the same time with Seal of the Martyr up.... and with Seal of Casino, my damage runs lower and I go OOM! Oh well.... I hope the next patch brings some help in this area!
