Multi-class synergy.

Postby Isetnefret » Fri Jul 24, 2009 1:14 pm

I often have a DPS (arms) warrior in my raids. Is it worth him using Demo Shout? He claims it's likely a waste of GCD when he could be DPSing, and the return on investment of Demo Shout is too small to be worthwhile.

From the warrior Q&A:

Tell him to deal with it. Dead tank -> Dead DPS = zero DPS. Sadly, most DPS try to optimize for DPS or damage done, when the group wants to optimize for bosses killed.

Also, unless you have a warrior tank your arms warrior should be putting up Sunder Armor; arms warriors loose less from keeping it up than rogues, if I recall. If you don't have a major armor debuff you should tell him to test until he sees that maintaining sunder is a DPS increase.

Most warriors know keeping sunder up is worth it.

Demo shout is most definitely worth it, although locks can do it as well (with a free FF thrown in if you don't have a druid, which is a good plan)

At the least he should use demo shout for boss "enrages" eg vexaz surge of darkness.

But but but... I don't care if the raid dies to Searing Flames on Vezax. I need my runic power for dps.

Replace that with rage/energy etc. Most dps seem to be idiots who only care about themselves.

When I'm raid leading, they're the ones who don't get invited back ;) Even at the cost of not being able to raid.
