... but I'm looking at the stars, right?
If by "stars", you mean "a DK and a warrior and a rogue who collectively managed to kick my sorry butt in dps".
I ran a HoT last night in a semi-pug - myself and three other guildies, plus a random fellow just to keep the LFD tool happy. As it turned out, we managed to pick up someone who used to play on our server and knew a couple of my guild mates, so it was a very pleasant run.
Except for my dps.
I mean, I used to think that 20K dps overall for an iLvl 381 arcane mage was acceptable in a heroic 5-man run.
Possibly even approaching "decent".
I've gotten to the point in a LFD group where I can pretty much expect that I'll be the #1 damage dealer, or #2 if a shaman shows up.
This run, though?
The rogue managed 60K dps. Not on one particular boss fight, either. That was 60K dps overall.
I mean... the DK tank was managing about 40K dps.
They're all raid geared, but... wow.
Sheesh. At least I managed to out-damage the healer.
