So I was running regular Halls of Origination when I had one of the most hostile groups I have ever encountered. I have gotten very used to seeing myself on top of the DPS meter in every instance pulling a consistent 9k. It's not super awesome but I just turned 85 yesterday and I'm still not geared enough to get into heroics. A boomkin commented on how good his DPS was considering he was in healing gear. He was pulling 4k and I told him that was horrible. Suddenly I had the entire group calling me a scrub and the tank (druid) took exception to this and decided one up me on the charts.
Now according to my recount, the tank in DPS form was pulling 10k (which he was quite proud of considering his item level was 355 and mine was 327) but the boomkin (who was talking the most crap) was still hovering around 4k. So here is my question: When he posted his recount data, it showed me on the bottom. But when I posted mine, I was right behind the tank (who went cat) by around 800 DPS. How come his recount was showing me so low? And since when did overall DPS for the entire dungeon (except during special fights when you do insane DPS like on grim batol) not count anymore? I'm arcane spec'd by the way. Is 9k just not very good for normal instances?
