Ok so I just started raiding again because my cousin's guild is a bunch of RL friends and they just got geared enough to actually raid. One thing I am confused about is how are people pulling the kind of dps that they are on that fight. This isn't a "I'm bottom of the meters" QQ post because, well, I wasn't. I was actually the top dps this week (missed last week when they did it because I had to take my girls to dance class) but only managed 22k dps and the next highest was barely 20k dps. I was looking at State of DPS (http://stateofdps.com) and it was showing that shadow priests average 42k dps on that fight in 10 man normal (what we are running). I'm just left scratching my head on how they manage that when I'm at like half that.
