Apparently some Death Knight *cough*dieinafire*cough* is conducting a survey of some sorts. Since I need all the free publicity I can get, I figured I'd fill it out.
What is the name, class, and spec of your primary dps?
Tiberan, Blood Elf Mage, Arcane.
What is your primary dpsing environment? (i.e. raids, pvp, 5 mans)
40% battlegrounds, 30% raiding, 10% arena, 10% ganking lowbies. The final 10% I slack off.
What is your favorite dps spell/ability for your class and why?
The one that kills you. Oh wait, you're a Death Knight, silly me. :p I guess Arcane Barrage, it's so pretty but it's hardly ever used post nerf.
What dps spell do you use least for your class and why?
I just answered that question. Arcane Barrage, and because it was nerfed. No one uses it when standing still unless they want to lose dps.
What do you feel is the biggest strength of your dps class and why?
The biggest strength is that if someone lets me stand still for ten seconds they are dead.
What do you feel is the biggest weakness of your dps class and why?
Who the hell lets you stand still for ten seconds in pvp?
In a 25 man raiding environment, what do you feel, in general, is the best dps assignment for you?
I do my best when given the ability to concentrate on one target and just pump out dps, so the boss or highest hp target?
What dps class do you enjoy dpsing with most and why?
Er, my Mage. Why else would I play one? Though shadow priests and balance druids come close.
What tanking class do you enjoy dpsing with least and why?
What tanking class do I enjoy dpsing WITH? I guess Paladin, we share a blue bar bond.
What is your worst habit as a dps?
What is your biggest pet peeve in a group environment while dpsing?
Do you feel that your class/spec is well balanced with other dps?
I should kill DK's with naught but a glance.
What tools do you use to evaluate your own performance as a damage dealer?
I look at the pretty colors I am radiating for a gauge of my awesome meter.
What do you think is the biggest misconception people have about your class?
That I will give them a portal. Sorry, but you need to be this intelligent to ride my ports.
What do you feel is the most difficult thing for new dpsers of your class to learn?
Running from DK's?
What dps class do you feel you understand least?
Warriors. They should all just man up and put on a sword n board.
What add-ons or macros do you use, if any, to aid you in dps?
I use an arcane power/icy veins/trinket macro, also known as my PWN button. I also use a Blizzard/Flamestrike macro, Fireward/Frostward macro, conjuring/using food macro, conjuring/using mana gem macro, polymorph macro. I use no addons except DBM.
Strength over other stats or balanced stat allocation, and why?
Idk my bff jill haste?
