I'm a rogue, never really raided with a caster and while levelling my warlock to eventually top the meters during raids, a strange thought came and I couldn't stop wondering ever since.
Is being close or far from the boss of any importance? Our incinerates and chaos bolts aren't instant blasts, and because of that they have to fly to the boss and this is where the real question comes - is being close or far from the boss affecting our dps? This might sound really stupid, but if we are closer to the boss, don't we damage him quicker and thus getting higher DPS, or my idea of how the dps meters work for casters is totally wrong? Even if we stand far away from the boss, the amount of damage from chaos bolts and incinerates will be the same as if we were right at the boss' back, but still...
I can't be the only one asking this question
