EDIT: Your testing, that is.

My consecration test was on live. The SS is something I stole from somewhere else from a hard mode boss in Ulduar.

Yes, I'm getting that Consecration hits harder than Divine Storm except on Thaddius on average. This means consecration is better for any boss you can be reasonably certain will not move for 10 seconds after hitting consecration (so Divine Storm is situationally better for Heigan, Globbulus, and thaddius).

edit: Consecration is my 5th largest DPS contribution. Crusader strike is 6th, and then Divine Storm. RV is 4th. The other ret paladin in my guild has exactly the same spread and I don't think he prioritizes Consecration.

I've set up my rotation to try out J > Cons > CS > DS this week, and I'll see if it makes a noticeable difference on Sartharion tomorrow.

I really doubt it is priority choices causing most people to not hit 5.5k or whatever on patchwerk (or the high dps they expect of their gear). Some of it is lady luck: did you get crits during cooldowns (avenging wrath)? Did your trinkets proc during AW? The other half of high dps is latency and framerate. Every 0.1s you lag behind on registering an ability is a HUGE dps drop. There isn't all that much you can do to overcome this either.

Yeah I had a 5400 Patch parse months ago, have gotten several upgrades since then and have yet to break 5200.

RNG is especially harsh on short fights.
