alright I might seem like a noob here (and certainly feel like one after seeing some of the numbers posted on this site), but how exactly do so many shadow priests do so much damage? I'm seeing a lot of people with wws showing 5k+ dps on patchwerk and seemingly high numbers on other boss encounters.
according to maxdps.com i'm doing everything correct, but still falling short on their dps estimate by around 400 dps on the heroic test dummy and I can't for the life of me figure out what I'm doing wrong.
typically start boss encounters out with SW:P, VT, DP, MB, SW, MF, then keep dots up, blow MB and SW whenever the cooldown is up and throw in MF when the other conditions are met. unbuffed I can get 2.8k dps on the heroic training dummy. maxdps.com says that I should be getting 3.2k at least. Any tips are appreciated ^_^
