Maybe we are looking at it from the wrong overall performance.
Bear with me here. Lets eliminate the top 10% of the logs. It's an area that covers a very small percentage of the overall player base. How do we compare in the say 50-90% field. Are we consistently 20% lower regaurdless of iLvL or are we closer to other classes. I know there always has to be someone at the bottom and the top. And I can only hope that overall they would try to keep all DPS to within 5%. If we are uniformly off the pack top to bottom then I will agree we need some increase, but I am willing to wait and see.
