True i didnt factor those in but it still wouldnt give enough extra damage to make the new VT on par.Originally Posted by jhemfl
''we can use SWD more often now'' - not really relevant as i currently use it on every cooldown for most fights (would only increase dps in certain phases of certain bosses, but nontheless a dps increase)
''extra mind flays or double crits'' - Okay the crits are not double that of TBC they are 175% compared with 150% before (possibly a 3% dps increase over a 6 minute fight) The extra 7 mind flays i would generously put at another 2% dps increase over a 6 minute tank'n'spank fight.
''extra 5% spell damage from Discipline'' - forgot about this
so all in all these three would be about 13% more dps, putting us at a whopping ~33% dps increase relatively to BC talents, STILL not enough to make VT on par with its predecessor, BUT certainly we will be pushing a lot more DPS than in BC, which i'm sure our Raid leaders will be happy about.
I am tired now, and studying all these factors has made me see we will be suffering less relative mana output, but gaining a lot more damage. I assume this is due to so many other classes also being able to share out mana.
