    I give D.I. to the best performing caster dps in our raids which happens to be our fire mage we do have an incredible shadow priest but there is a DI for him aswell. None of our boomkins have a legendary so they are SoL.

    that's nice and all, but you didn't explain how you got to those numbers... so I can't base anything on them =/

    You can do it yourself if you want. I'll do it for one class only for demonstration purpose. Start SimulationCraft GUI, set up the settings like I listed them in my post. Tick all buffs except Dark Intent and Focus Magic.

    In the simulation box, enter:

    Priest_Shadow_T13H.simc
    Warlock_Demonology_T13H.simc
    dark_intent_target=Priest_Shadow_T13H

    Simulate, take note of raid dps. Modify the file Warlock_Demonology_T13H.simc to remove the Dark Intent action, restart a simulation with those two lines:

    Priest_Shadow_T13H.simc
    Warlock_Demonology_T13H.simc

    Take note of the raid dps, substract the two result. Voila. Rinse and repeat for every specs and classes.

    you only calculated for spirets/fatkin/fire mage or have you included other classes/speccs aswell?

    Originally only intended to do it for shadow priests and fire mages because of a question on the priests forums, but decided to add balance druids. I didn't bother to do the other classes because it takes a long time to do and I know for sure every other classes are under those 3.

    I dont think boomkins should celebrate yet.
    I did some testing of people in my guilds. Shadow priest, Boomkin, Fire mage all in 391 gear with legendary with myself as destro and got the following results:

    Raid DPS gain:
    Druid: 3555
    Mage: 3859
    Priest: 3743

    My question is why do locks keep putting DI on me in random groups when I am a rogue

    There's either no one else with worthwhile dots, or they're mentally challenged.

    there's a new build out of simcraft (430-2), you might want to redo your calc and see if it changes the list

    Methodology? I'm asking, because if you only ticked and unticked the buff dark intent, it's totally bogus.

    Nah what I did was that I opened myself from armory and deleted the line with dark intent, this nerfed by dps with around 2,1k I believe it was. Then I saved the people I was simming as a profile and then pretty much used the command that u listed. I also tried to do it with the profiles u listed to see if I was doing it correctly and I got the same results as u +/- 20 dps

    I forgot to deactivate the buff the first time, so I redid everything with it off. Figured I would keep the results there, but I'm getting rid of it for the next simcraft build.

    Alright, was just making sure. But yeah, the rankings will be different in a couple of weeks. Once your guildies gear themselves.
